Brunswick- Carl "Skip” Jewett Jr., age 76 of Paul St., died Wednesday, July 18th at Parkview Adventist Medical Center after a well fought battle with cancer. He was born in Waterville, ME on February 24, 1936, the son of Karl E. and Stella Emery Jewett.


He was raised in Brunswick on the Old Bath Road and was educated in Brunswick Schools. He entered the U.S. Army in 1961 and married Irene Dionne on August 27, 1962.

Skip was a member of the National Rifle Association, the Waldoboro Rod and Gun Club, and the CB club. He loved collecting and repairing guns and was an avid reader of western novels. He was a Jack of all trades building both his and his daughter’s homes, repairing cars and plowing driveways and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. He also loved animals and was an avid feeder of the birds.


He was a doting father, a good man with a big heart, who will be missed by all.
