Hermon & Lubec—Wayne A. Morong, 71, passed away suddenly Nov. 29, 2017 at EMMC. He was born Oct. 12, 1946, in Portland to Clifton and Shirley Morong.
Wayne, originally from Lubec, ME was a "happy go lucky" man who loved his family. He was a friendly man, who could make a friend anywhere he went. He loved to talk to people and tell stories. Wayne was so proud of his children and grandchildren and attended as many birthday parties and events as he could, even though he had to travel to get to them. He never ended a conversation without telling you that he loved you. Wayne was a member of the Lubec Fire Dept. for many years. Wayne loved anything automotive. Most of Wayne's job's had to do with driving big trucks and cars. One of his favorite pastimes was attending the races at Speedway 95. He also loved mackerel fishing in the boat that was passed down to him by his father and spent many hours in the waters around the Bangor area fishing with Camilla and friends. He will be missed for his contagious smile, boisterous laugh, and comforting hugs.
