Wiscasset- John Joseph Grundy, 81, of Freedom Song Lane died Sunday, March 8, 2020 at Togus in Augusta.
He was born in Boston, MA on July 21, 1938, a son of John Joseph and Bertha Margaret (Quinn) Grundy.
He grew up in Coventry, Rhode Island and graduated from Coventry High School. He entered the U.S. Navy in 1957, serving until 1961. He was employed at Pratt & Whitney, Connecticut and then Quonset, Rhode Island. He married Cornelia G. Leigh in 1962, and they moved to Wiscasset in 1977. He was then employed by DOD Supervisor of Shipbuilding in Bath, retiring in 1995.
He enjoyed his family, friends, and the many projects he had around the house. He was always up for an adventure, and many times was the instigator! If John couldn’t be found all you had to do was listen for the chain saw or tractor.
He was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Cornelia G. Grundy on November 17, 2017, his son, Jason M. Grundy on May 11, 1983, one sister, Eleanor Pokraka on February 2, 2019.

Trowbridge and her husband Andrew of Franklin, two brothers, Henry F. Grundy and his wife Hillary of France and James W. Grundy and his wife Beverly of Rhode Island, one sister, Marianne Doyle of Virginia, four granddaughters and many special nieces and nephews.
