Brunswick—Charles Robison Vaughan, age 78, died Saturday September 24, 2022.
He was born September 26, 1943, in Beverly, MA, a son of Gordon and Marjorie (Robison) Vaughan. He was a graduate of Governor Dummer Academy and Bowdoin College, class of 1965. Shortly thereafter, he began his teaching career at Gardiner Regional Middle School, where he later met and married Priscilla Glazier on December 22, 1978, in Augusta.
After graduating from Bowdoin College, he began his fifty-two-year teaching career. He taught at both Gardiner Regional Middle School and Gardiner Area High School, spending time teaching English, French, and Spanish. He finished his career working as an educational technician with students in the Learning Lab. He had an immense passion for teaching, cars, boats, and his family. He worked at Bates and Cunningham after college, and at Portland Volvo on the weekends and school vacations, and loved attending car and boat shows.
Chuck grew up on the water in Massachusetts, and fostered a love of the ocean and sailing with his family, who settled in a 1792 farm house on Mere Point Road. He was on sailing teams throughout his school years, and spent much of his summers off around Paul’s Marina, exploring Casco Bay with his family. He was part of the Marine Resources Committee, and actively involved in fundraising efforts to preserve Maine’s coast.
