Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice.

While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties.

Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee").

If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information.

A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

Please share your favorite memory of Angus to be included in a special keepsake book for the family.
Angus L. Wilson of Goose Rocks Beach (Kennebunkport) peacefully passed on to his eternal home December 11, 2022. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who was blessed with a healthy and active life for over 99 years.

Angus was born on April 27, 1923, to John and Helen (Stevenson) Wilson in Kearny, NJ. He was a humble World War II veteran who served in the South Pacific from 1942-1945. After serving our country honorably, he attended a church dinner to welcome home the troops at which he reconnected with Doris Smith, who became his beloved wife of almost 67 years. After getting married in 1947, they raised their four children in Packanack Lake (Wayne), NJ. He was an agent for Allstate Insurance Company for most of his working career. While he was dedicated to his career, he always made time to coach his kids on various sports teams. Wonderful family vacations in Maine led to their eventual retirement at Goose Rocks Beach.

Angus loved the outdoors. He had a passion for golf, which he passed along to his entire family, including his grandchildren. He was a long-time member of Packanack Golf Club and during his tenure as President of the club he led the campaign to build the clubhouse. He later became a member of Cape Arundel Golf Club for 36 years. Soon after joining he started the Wednesday Men’s Group, which continues to this day. At the time of his death, he was the oldest active golfer at Cape Arundel. He loved living on the coast of Maine and all it included – boating, fishing and an appreciation for the beauty of nature. He enjoyed working in the yard and was meticulous in caring for his property.

Angus is predeceased by his wife, Doris, and son, Stephen. He leaves behind a daughter-in-law, daughter and two sons: Ellen Wilson, Janet Urquhart, Rick (and wife Diane) Wilson and Dave (and wife Sue) Wilson. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren: Stephanie Wilson, Ryan (and wife Sarah) Wilson; Michael, Katie and Molly Mendola; Patrick, Cory (and wife Kiara) and Tyler Wilson; and Kyle and Kevin (and wife Kerry) Wilson. In addition, he is survived by 6 great grandchildren: Samantha and Charlie Whitehead, Russell and Duncan Wilson, and Levi and Canaan Wilson.

In May of this year, Angus relocated from Goose Rocks Beach to Kennebunk. His family is grateful for the special community at Huntington Common Senior Living and the compassionate care Angus received from Beacon Hospice.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Angus’ life will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2023, at 11:00 AM at the First Congregational Church, 141 North Street, Kennebunkport, where he and Doris were members for many years. A lunch reception at the church will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Angus’ memory to the charity of your choice.

To leave a message of condolence, please visit Angus’ book of Memories Page at

Arrangements are entrusted to Bibber Memorial Chapel, 67 Summer St. Kennebunk.

David Wilson

Posted at 11:55am
Almost 100 years, can you imagine how much my Dad witnessed? With a life long appreciation for the ocean, seems fitting to have culminated the last 4 decades of his life on the coast of Maine. Growing up in bustling northern New Jersey, my Dad was fortunate to be able to enjoy the beach because his father worked as a butler for a family with a summer home near Point Pleasant Beach at the New Jersey shore. Spending time as a young boy in the tidal waters, he developed into an excellent swimmer. Honing his skills in the strong currents and undertow the Jersey shore was known for. Dad’s enjoyment of the ocean was not just limited to being in the water, but observing what sailed upon it and flew above it as well. When Dad was 13, in 1936, the airship Hindenburg started trans-atlantic flights from Germany to the US carrying passengers and mail from Europe. Being the largest airship of its time, Dad said it was really quite something to behold as it hovered low and slow over Point Pleasant Beach. And, Dad saw this aerial display several times before the Hindenburg famously ignited into flames while docking at nearby Lakehurst in May 1937.
No matter how old you are, we all had times in our lives when we knew exactly where we were and what we were doing when we lived through tragic events in American history. For many of us probably 9/11 comes to mind. While asking my Dad about this phenomenon he shared the following vivid memory with me. It was December 8, 1941. My Dad was 18 years old, in the basement of his house trying to build a kayak from instructions in a Popular Mechanics magazine while listening to the radio. The radio program was interrupted by President Franklin Roosevelt’s address about the previous day’s attack on the US Naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Dad told me before that day he and most Americans never heard of Pearl Harbor. Hawaii was not even a state yet. This was a watershed moment for Dad and America as it started our involvement in War World II. Over the years, he had been somewhat reluctant to share details on his experiences in the war. So earlier this year while Dad was still relatively healthy in body and mind, Rick and I teamed up to learn details of Dad’s service. The combination of me asking questions and Rick taking copious notes proved fruitful. During basic training Dad was assigned to the Signal Corps Unit 897. Dad’s adept swimming abilities must have been duly noted because following basic training he was sent to Omaha, Nebraska to teach 78 servicemen to swim at the local YMCA. He taught so well that he was offered permanent assignment as a swim instructor and could have remained in that position for the duration of the war. But Dad declined because he felt it was his duty to return to his unit in the Signal Corps where he served from 1942 - 1945 in two locations in the South Pacific. First in New Guinea and toward the end of the war in the Philippines. The Army had two missions in New Guinea. First, to rid the island of the occupying Japanese and second to build airstrip runways for American bombers to make bombing runs to Japan. Much of the island was covered in rough black coral. The Army’s construction battalion used large dossiers with massive blades to scrape the coral which made the surface look like newly paved asphalt, perfect for a runway. The Army had brought ashore recreational and basketball equipment yet there was no smooth flat surfaces to play on. So Dad asked one of the dossier operators if he would scrape out a smooth surface basketball court for his fellow soldiers. The next day an Officer told my Dad the didn’t have permission to ask the dossier operator to make the court. However, after seeing the servicemen playing basketball, that same Officer later told Dad what he did was good for morale. These runways were also used for moving troops throughout the island. One such seemly benign mission was of a C47 troop transport plane with around 30 servicemen on board including Dad. Upon takeoff one of the landing gear tires blew out. The pilot warned everyone on board that the landing ahead was going to be bumpy. As soon as the plane touched down it made a sharp turn, like a tricycle missing a wheel. All on board were indebted to the skill of the pilot with no injuries except to the plane which sustained a broken wing.
While in New Guinea, Dad received word from the Red Cross that his father had passed away and in fact was already buried by the time word got to him. As a result, the Army gave Dad 10 days of R&R in Australia. While sitting on the beach there, he noticed two swimmers struggling in the water in danger of drowning. Dad swam out to the two men and brought both safely to shore separately. Dad told me the first man was no problem. But the second man was uncontrollably panic stricken and kept pulling him under. Struggling to help the man, Dad said, “if you keep fighting me, we’re both going down.” Finally the man stopped flailing and pulling so Dad was able to rescue him also.
After New Guinea was in Allied control his unit moved to the Philippine Islands. At this point in the war, with limited Japanese sea vessels left to evacuate, many of the Japanese fought till the end. One particular event in the Philippines made a lasting impression on Dad. Just outside the capital of Manila he could hear loud explosions of a tank battle happening in the city. The next day Dad’s unit arrived in Manila to find this battle took place in Rizal Stadium, a huge concrete soccer coliseum. The results of the battle were evident with entire sections of the structure destroyed or missing. He was amazed at the damage the stadium had sustained and the mechanical wreckage on the field.
Indeed, my Dad did see and experience a lot in his 99 years. In aviation alone, from the Hindenburg off Point Pleasant Beach. To performances of the Blue Angels at Maine’s Brunswick Naval Air Station with his grandchildren. To sightseeing the coastal foliage in a small plane just a couple months ago with his buddy Nelson from Huntington Common.
I’m thankful my family has terrific memories to hold on to. From boating and fishing in the inlet to golfing at Cape Arundel to bocce and wiffle ball at Goose Rocks Beach and card games at night. My kids will always remember fun times with their grandparents in Maine.
Dad enjoyed and appreciated everyday. His optimism was infectious. When I asked him how he was doing, he rarely just said “okay.” Usual response was either “fine” or “great” although many times he would say, “I’m doing just this side of fabulous.” He defined what living life to the fullest really meant. And Dad was a good steward of the time and abilities God gave him. For me, it brings to mind, the parable of the talents in Matthew 25. “Well done good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” ESV

In recent years I spent a lot of time with my Dad. Fortunately we enjoyed many of the same things. He liked going for rides, as do I, and we spent lots of time ‘exploring’ the Maine coast and inland lakes. He always said “I can see so much more when you’re driving”.
While in FL in 2019 we attended The Players golf tournament and at the Patriot Pavilion Dad was honored not just as a veteran, but as a WWII veteran. He never drew attention to himself by revealing this but I had no problem doing so. In fact, he needed some coaxing to wear the WWII veteran hat Dave & Sue gave him. But when he started to wear it regularly many people thanked him for his service and he was deeply touched as evidenced by his cracking voice and tearful eye.
A tradition we had while in FL was driving to Mount Dora or Sarasota to visit his cousin, Harold. Growing up they weren’t just cousins, but best buddies. Cindy, Harold’s daughter, and I so enjoyed listening to them reminisce about their boyhood antics. And we never tired of hearing the story of their Aunt Leesh who lost her dentures when hit by a wave at the Jersey shore. The boys, then 6 and 8, were shocked when their toothless Aunt Leesh complained to the lifeguard who directed her to a bucket from which she selected a new set of teeth and popped them into her mouth! Our last visit to Harold was last winter when they were 98 and 100, and both still sharp minded and very much loving being together.
Another thing Dad enjoyed was watching sports on TV and we spent countless hours doing this together. His favorites were gold, the Red Sox, any football game (though especially any team Tom Brady was on) and U Conn Women’s basketball.
Last August Dad and I played golf at Cape Arundel, his last round. We set out to play 9 but he said “Let’s play 1 more hole”. He wasn’t pleased with his round because he “couldn’t hit the ball as long as he used to”. But he still hit the ball straight and was a good putter. I reminded him he was the only 99 yr old on the course and to just enjoy it. The picture on his memorial service bulletin was taken that day; he was vibrant and had a smile on his face.
When you played golf with Dad he wanted YOU to do well. And if he took you fishing, he wanted YOU to catch a fish. I suppose that is graciousness.
Dad was a gentleman. When he moved to Huntington Common last May everyone loved him because of his warm smile, graciousness and positive attitude. There he met a friend named Nelson and the 2 of them were infamous for their adventures - driving to Old Orchard Beach, Goose Rocks Beach, Portland Head Light and even taking a foliage plane ride in October! I texted my brothers: Dad isn’t just alive, HE’S LIVING!!
Dad enjoyed life and looked forward to each new day. He found pleasure in the simple things in life such as flowers, a sunset and the ever changing tidal water in front of his house.
To the end he wore a smile and expressed gratitude to those who helped care for him. I’m grateful to God that his days of declined health were brief. He gave us so many wonderful memories and life lessons and those will remain with us always in our hearts.

Angus Wilson was a great man! “Great” is an often overused word, especially when used to describe people, but when describing Gus Wilson, it is most certainly not. I repeat, my father was a great man.

For those of you who attended my brother Steve’s memorial service 3 ½ weeks ago, we have to stop meeting like this. However, there is a significant distinction between these two memorial services – Steve’s decline from an insidious disease was tragic and he died much too young. Dad lived a wonderful full life to be celebrated. His mother, Helen, lived to be 99 years and 7+ months (20 days) and Angus lived to be 99 years and 7+ months (14 days) too. I think Grandma may have beat Dad by about 1 week.

As the youngest and last surviving child of John and Helen Wilson, Angus was a second generation American, and sadly the last of his generation in the family. Dad exemplified the Greatest Generation. If you have not read The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw, do yourself a favor and read it. Dad was profoundly shaped by growing up during the Depression.

When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Angus, like many other young men (more like boys actually) quickly enlisted to defend and preserve the freedom of America. They did not hesitate or even consider the consequences of their well-being. They did not enlist because someone told them to. It was just the right thing to do. All of these boys who served in WWII and were lucky enough to return, returned as men who contributed to the post-war American prosperity. This was my Dad. Dad did not consider anything he did during the War to be extraordinary, and as Dave mentioned, he did not like to talk about his war experiences. Dad, thanks for serving our country in WWII. I am very proud of you for your service.

My father was patriotic, humble, proud, honest and the most patient person I have ever known. He had a warm friendly smile. He could fix anything whether it was a toy, plumbing or a window broken by an errant throw of a ball. My father was a very proud and patient man who believed in “doing things the right way” which was an expression often heard around 60 Valley View Terrace. All he ever wanted was what was best for his family.

Sports were very important in the Wilson household. Even though Dad wanted his front yard at home to be well manicured he let Dave and me and the neighborhood kids wear basepaths in the backyard playing wiffle ball. When Dad cooked on grill on the weekends he would play football with us in the backyard. He was the designated quarterback barking out his infamous “Siginals Hike”. We always had a basketball hoop in the driveway and again most the neighborhood kids played basketball at our house. We had some good family games too, but nobody wanted to play defense against Dad and his infamous stiff-arm hook shot. Dad coached Steve, Dave and me in baseball and basketball, and taught all of us, including Jan, to play golf. Golf continues to be a favorite Wilson family passion to this day. Some of my favorite times on the golf course were family matches at Packanack Golf Club and Cape Arundel.

I wish I had my Dad’s patience, and so does Diane. I brought a good example of his patience and belief in doing things the right way – it’s a golf scorecard from Passaic County Golf Course in which Dad took 12-year-old Rick and 11-year-old Dave for their first round of golf. He taught us to play golf the right way from the very first time and this scorecard can attest to that. We counted everything including when two probably too young boys whiffed at the little white ball. Our scores included a 19 by Dave on the 6th hole, and totaled 184 for Dave and 178 for Rick, and amazingly under those conditions a 93 for Dad.

I also brought another prized possession with me. It is a dirty baseball, but not an ordinary dirty baseball. I played organized sports in Packanack since I was 6 years old with Dad as my coach for many seasons. In baseball I mostly played catcher or first base. One day I asked my father about pitching. He explained a little about the art of pitching and asked me how I would like to pitch next Saturday. I can recall saying something like, gee I don’t know and wouldn’t want to let my team down because I hadn’t pitched before. Sensing he piqued my curiosity, Dad said he had confidence I could pitch well for the Braves. Well that next Saturday I did pitch, and inscribed on the game ball reads:

Braves 4
Indians 3
W/P R. Wilson

but what is even more important than the score are the words:

A.L. Wilson, Mgr.

I do not know anyone who did not like my father. He lived his last 7 months (it was exactly 7 months to the day) in independent living at Huntington Common. I was concerned how he would adapt to a different living arrangement at 99 years old. My concerns were quickly dismissed because in those 7 months he made many friends. Keith, the hospice nurse who visited Dad the last month told me he wished he got to know Gus earlier because he seemed like such a great guy. I responded to Keith that no offense but because you are a hospice nurse, I am glad you did not. Mary, a nurse at Huntington Common, told Jan, Dave and me Dad’s body was draped with an American flag when he was taken away and there was not a dry eye in the building. That was our Dad.

Dad, thanks for everything. I am thankful and proud you were my father. I hope I made you proud at times. Thanks for all life’s lessons you taught me. You were an exemplary role model. Please continue to provide guidance for the rest of my life. I can only hope I have been close to as good a father for Pat, Cory and Tyler as you were for me. I love you. You will be missed, but never forgotten. Rest in peace with Mom and Steve.

Grandpa, you were one of the best guys around. In fact, in my mind, you are the best. You taught me so much, and I am forever grateful for the laughs, memories, and conversations we had at the kitchen table.

Your home at Goose Rocks was my happy place. Some of my favorite childhood memories take place there. It was a place of stability and love; crossing the Piscataqua Bridge always provoked a smile, and the feeling and smell of the salty Maine air brought peace to my heart. I still feel it to this day.

Thank you for teaching me how to fish and bait a worm, the thought of doing that today feels different than it did at 5 years old, but maybe that is because it was way cooler to do it with you.

Your love for Grandma might be my favorite memory. From the countless "sweeties" that made us all laugh to ensuring she had dessert after each meal, your love for her echoed in every space you were in. You helped others believe in love by just being in your presence, it was magical to witness, and I am so glad I got to see the magic of your love.

Thank you for allowing me to stay with you during the pandemic. That was a time I will cherish because I got to spend so much quality time with you. From the daily scrambled eggs to crab cakes and even pizza and Miller Lites, our meals and conversations shared will forever be imprinted in my heart.

I am so lucky to have had a Grandpa like you. My love for you is not gone even though you physically are; thank you for being the best Grandpa a girl could ask for and dream of. I promise to make you proud in all I do.

As the PGA Professional at Cape Arundel Golf Club for nearly 40 years I had the honor of Gus not only in my professional career but as a friend in my personal life. What an honor , what a gentleman ,and what a true aristocratic to the game of golf . He was not only the “piped piper “ for his fellow four ball but an extremely proud father and grandfather for the skills he passed down.
He leaves a lasting memory to many and to me particularly as I thank him for enriching my journey in life on and off the course , Ken Raynor
