Sebago - Llewellyn A. Garland of Sebago went home to Jesus on October 28, 2020 at Springbrook Center in Westbrook of natural causes and old age, as he was 90 years old. Lew was born on January 15, 1930 to a family of 14 children. He attended local schools and started working at an early age at a dairy farm and in the lumber industry.

He was a master mechanic and managed several Sunoco stations, worked at the Limerick Mill and drove truck for a lumber yard.
