Sheridan W. Hargreaves

NEW VINEYARD – Sheridan W. Hargreaves 86, of 139 Church Street in New Vineyard, passed away at his home on November 6, 2021, after an extended treatment for cancer. Sheridan, known as “Bill”, was born in New Vineyard on May 29, 1935, to Harold Hargreaves and Emma Wells Hargreaves. He attended the Roosevelt Grammar School and graduated from Farmington High School.

Sheridan resided in New Vineyard all his life, moving from the family farm to his home that he built across the road. He was a lumberman most of his life having worked alongside his brothers, Roland, Richard, David, Gerald Wayne, and Gregory. For a time Bill worked with David as a carpenter and built several homes in the area. He was also one of the volunteers who built the New Vineyard Fire Station.

Being quite the sportsman, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and trapping, most of his life. Sheridan was well known for his wild berry picking and was very generous delivering them around town to his many friends and family. He also enjoyed his camp at the lake and lived there in the summer time.

Sheridan is survived by his sister, Fay Adams; his brothers, Richard, David, Gerald, and Gregory. He was predeceased by his father and mother; older brother, George; and younger brother Roland.

The family wishes to extend its gratitude for the exceptional and compassionate care and attendance provided by Androscoggin Home Health Care at his home. Also to Sarah and Terry, who cared for him on long nights to make it possible for him to stay at home during his last days.

On Friday, November 12, 2021, visitation and refreshments will be from 11 am to 1 pm, with a time of sharing memories to begin at 1 pm, at Dan & Scott’s Cremation & Funeral Service, 488 Farmington Falls Rd., Farmington, ME. Interment will follow at the Pratt Cemetery, on Route 27 in New Vineyard.

Donations may be made in Sheridan’s memory to the Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice, 15 Strawberry Ave., Lewiston, ME 04240.
