Robert (Bob) D. Hahn passed away peacefully on May 8, 2023 at Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta. He was born on January 29, 1935, in Waldoboro to George and Gladys Hahn and was the youngest of six children. Bob graduated from Waldoboro High School in 1953 where he enjoyed playing on the varsity basketball and baseball teams. In 1956, he was drafted into the Army where he served most of his time in Stuttgart, Germany as a tank mechanic. Upon his return, he worked as a delivery driver for Hood Dairy transporting goods from Maine to Boston while working towards his master electrician’s license. Once he started a family, he began working as a lineman at Central Maine Power where he worked for over 25 years.
After his retirement from CMP, Bob enjoyed most of his time working up at his camp on Medomak Pond. This was his pride and joy. Up on the pond, you would often find him tinkering on one of his tractors, mowing the lawn to perfection, or doing some improvement project in preparation for the next annual family reunion. He loved hosting all his siblings, nieces, nephews, and many cousins for this event each year.
Bob also enjoyed his time at the American Legion. When the clock struck 4 p.m., you could often find him with his companion Sharon Brown and many of their friends joined around the table for happy hour and much laughter.
Whenever the chance, he loved cooking and he was a master at making fried clams, homemade onion rings, and you never wanted to miss out on his baked beans. He was an avid Red Sox fan and loved to watch Westerns. His hobbies also included bowling, cribbage, attending events for his children, Dale and Jane, and eventually, the activities for his two grandchildren, Myron and Della.
Bob is predeceased by his son, Dale M. Hahn of North Waldoboro. He is survived by his daughter Jane B. Hahn of Salt Lake City, Utah, grandchildren Myron and Della Hahn of Boothbay Harbor, and his long-term companion Sharon Brown of Nobleboro.
