October 10, 1952 – October 19, 2018
Durham - Carl O. Condon, 66, of Durham passed away at his home on October 19, 2018.
Carl was born on October 10,1952 in Portland, ME to Carl R. and Alice Ann (Dogan) Condon. He graduated from Freeport High School, joined the Navy, and was honorably discharged due to a back injury. He earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the University of Maine system and was self-employed for decades, owning rental properties.
Carl married Andrea Dahlgren in 1973 and together they welcomed their daughter Elizabeth (Beth) Ann Condon in 1977, whom Carl affectionately nicknamed “Miss Munchkin”.
To honor Beth’s memory after her tragic death, Carl founded the Beth Condon Scholarship at the Yarmouth High School where Beth had been a student. He was also an integral partner in establishing the Beth Condon Memorial Pathway in Yarmouth and her Butterfly Garden along the path.
Carl’s hobbies included camping, fishing, hunting, boating, and campfires. He lived in Alaska for a couple years during his 30s. In recent years he has been spending winters in Florida where he loved to walk for many miles on the beach. He also enjoyed cars, and was happily restoring a 1956 Pontiac Safari Station Wagon.
Carl is survived by his mother Alice Condon; his brother Cliff Condon and wife Nancy; and his sister Cherie Gustafson, husband Asbjorn, and their children Oscar and Matilda. He is also survived by his girlfriend Susie Langerlier.
He is predeceased by his daughter, Elizabeth Condon; father, Carl R. Condon; and sister, Catherine (Condon) Campbell.
Visiting hours will be held at Lindquist Funeral Home, 1 Mayberry Lane in Yarmouth, on Saturday, November 3rd at 11am, and a service at noontime. Interment at Burr Cemetery in Freeport will occur directly after the service.
In lieu of flowers, Carl’s family would like you to consider donations payable to the “Beth Condon Scholarship” at Yarmouth High School Guidance, 286 West Elm Street, Yarmouth, ME 04096.

Dear Condon Family:
I am very sorry for your loss of Carl. His daughter Beth and I were close friends growing up. Her mother would baby sit me until Beth and I would get on the bus for school together. I remember talking with Carl at Beth's service and had a wonderful conversation with him. My deepest sympathy to the whole family.

I met Carl and Clayton though our friend Joanne. He was a warm, friendly and troubled friend. He was a deeply caring friend who shared and cared. His sense of humor was contagious. Carl will be missed by me and also my friend Alan.

I met Carl and his friend Clayton a year or two after I moved to Florida in 2005, when they were visiting from Maine. He was a friend of mine from then on, and subsequently with my husband Simon, whom I married in 2010. His Northeast accent always made me feel like I was back home in New England. I always enjoyed his corny jokes. He always took such pride in the mileage he racked up walking on Fort Myers Beach! I loved to tease him about his beach outfit with the meticulously rolled up shorts and sandals tucked into his waistband. Carl always freely expressed his love for his friends and how much he enjoyed our company. My husband and I hold him in our hearts very dearly and will miss him.

Aunt Alice and family I can't imagine what you must be feeling/going through. Just know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I don't think I ever saw Carl without a smile (or grin) on his face, so that's how I choose to remember him!
