Retired Center Ossipee fire chief, pastor dies
Brownell credited Stockbridge with modernizing the fire department, both in terms of equipment and training.
Stockbridge’s many accomplishments include completing an addition to the existing Center Ossipee Fire Station, a project that made space for a large apparatus bay. Brownell said he first met Stockbridge as a Boy Scout in local Troop 234, where Stockbridge served as scoutmaster.
Selectman Robert Freeman is Stockbridge’s son-in-law. Freeman described his father-in-law as an icon of the community.
Stockbridge is survived by his wife, Loretta, whom he married in 1959; his children, Glenn Stockbridge, Wayne Stockbridge and Sandra Freeman; daughters-in-law Donna and Jenifer Stockbridge; son-in-law Robert Freeman; and six grandchildren. Calling hours will be held Friday, Nov. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lord Funeral Home in Center Ossipee with a funeral service on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 1 p.m. at the Moultonville United Methodist Church with a reception following at River’s Edge in Ossipee.
