For Maine Only
Governor Paul R. LePage has directed all State of Maine flags in the City of South Portland be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, August 12 in memory of Lieutenant Harry Weymouth of the South Portland Fire Department. Lt. Weymouth passed away Thursday, August 2 in an auto accident.
Please note: State of Maine flags are to be lowered in South Portland only. If the Maine State and United States flags are flown on the same staff, it is appropriate to affix the Maine State flag with a black ribbon to denote mourning in lieu of lowering.
Lt. Weymouth had a long career in public service, starting in the fire service as a member of the Buxton Volunteer Fire Department at age 15 and rising to the level of chief of the station. He joined the South Portland Fire Department in 1997 and was promoted to Lieutenant in 2005. He mentored many of the city's firefighters in all phases of the fire service responsibilities. Lt. Weymouth served as a medic with the Southern Maine Regional SWAT team and became the medic coordinator. He was also a Registered Nurse and worked for Goodall Hospital in Sanford for many years.
Services for Lt. Weymouth will be held Sunday, August 12 at 3 p.m. at Eastpoint Christian Church in South Portland.
