Fred Allen Osgood, 86, passed away on April 18, 2015. He was born on Monhegan Island, in 1928, the son of Harold and Veniene Osgood. He is survived by his loving wife Harriet; five children Dean, Dan, Carl, Gary, and Laura and their spouses. He is also survived by sisters Ellen Brennan, Margaret Moore, Kathleen McRae and her husband Paul, 12 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers Harold, Donald and Eugene.
Fred began his working life at a paper mill in Old Town, then became a carpenter and contractor, a builder and dorm-parent at Glen Cove Christian Academy in Rockport and finally fulfilled his lifeís calling to God as a pastor of Spruce Head Community Church.
He loved woodworking, playing with his grandchildren, sharing time with friends on Penobscot Bay in a boat he made with his own hands. He was adventurous, spontaneous, caring, generous, joyful and loving--always ready to visit or help anyone in need.
He never met a lobster he didnít like. Every time his motorcycle left the yard the church prayer circle went into high gear. He loved and was loved by everyone. He faithfully brought the light of Christ to everyone he met, including the bagboy at the supermarket. Always ready to give, wanting nothing in return, he will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

I cannot start to tell or my time with Fred. I was a student at Glen Cove. He was the youth leader at Lincolnville beach Church under Jack Diamond. We worked together building the Dorm building. A lot of stories there. The engine in his boat came from my 55 ford. 272 v8. I remember the time he came back from the week end and he shared this story. It seemed the ferry could not run that morning so the methodist preacher needed a ride. He asked Fred if he could take him over. Fred said, sure as long as you do me a favor. I will give you some bible verses and you use them in your sermon. Sure enough the preacher said. When he went back to pick up the preacher he asked him how it went. Fine said the preacher. I got saved today. That was my friend Fred. Lord willing I will be at the funeral. Rev. Ambrose Rolfe Sr.
