Hampden - Eric Nute - 50 - passed away peacefully April 14, 2022, in Hampden after a long illness. He was born May 14, 1971 in Bangor.
Eric went to Hermon Christian School for Elementary School, Caravel Middle School, and graduated from Hermon High School. He then attended Pensacola Christian College in Florida where he studied Art and finetuned his God given gift as an amazing artist. Shortly after attending college, he returned home and settled down in Winterport to start a family. Since the day they were born his four children were his greatest joy in life. He loved spending countless hours outdoors with them hiking, biking, and fishing as well as being their Scoutmaster and sports coach. His big extended families also meant the world to him, and he got to watch his children build strong bonds with them, just as he had done as a child. When he wasn’t spending time with family, he was applying his strong work ethic at Casella. He started as a machine operator at 19 years old and over the next 27 years worked his way up to become the site supervisor in Old Town. Eric was so loved by many and even though he was a quiet man, he had a gift for showing others his love and generosity. Though he will be dearly missed, we are grateful for the time we shared with him and that he is free of pain, in the care of the lord.
He is survived by his grandfather, Pastor Donald Campbell Sr of Searsport, and grandmothers, Althea Nute of Carmel, and Mary Jane Adams of Frankfort; his parents, Jim and Diane Nute of Hampden and Troy and Kenneth and Gayle Brassbridge of Frankfort. He also leaves behind his siblings, Jill and Dale Overlock and their children Iris, Owen, and Charlotte of Newburgh, Stacy and Travis Kane of Greene, and Dustin and Liberty Brassbridge of Bucksport.; his dear children, Caleb, Austin, Libby, and Colby Nute of Winterport. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins whom he was very close to.
A private ceremony will be held for the immediate family on April 20th with Pastor Dale Overlock of the Steadfast Church officiating. He will be laid to rest at the Rogers Cemetery in Troy.
