Wallace G. "Doc" Soule Jr.

Wallace Gore "Doc" Soule, Jr., 85
FARMINGDALE - Wallace Gore "Doc" Soule, Jr., 85, of Farmingdale, passed unexpectedly on August 24, 2016, at his beloved Lower Goose Island - a gorgeous summer day while sitting on the porch he helped build with his father over 50 years ago. His family could not wish for a more perfect ending to a full and active life.
Wallace, fondly dubbed "Doc" by his mother, was born in Pittsburgh, Penn. in 1931 to Wallace G. Soule and Eleanor Painter Soule. He spent a happy childhood on Mill Creek in Falmouth where summers were filled sailing and rowing and where tillers and oars were surrendered for skates and hockey sticks in the colder months. He attended Deering High School and Kimball Union Academy, and was conferred a business degree from Babson College in 1954. After a brief tour in Korea, Doc returned to Portland and began a 30 year banking career with Maine National Bank. In 1987 he was appointed Director of the Maine State Lottery, a post he held for five years.
In 1957 he married Elizabeth Palmer Soule and together they raised their four children in Yarmouth. Though not a teacher by profession, he had a gift of instruction with his offspring. Whether teaching them to ride a bicycle, swing a baseball bat or golf club, stack wood, or navigate calm or choppy seas, he did so with patience, purpose and joy imparting a reverence for hard work and the natural world. He was a long-time member of the Harraseeket Yacht Club, a current member of the Central Maine Seniors' Golf League, an avid reader, and a formidable debater of current affairs. A thoughtful man who chose his words carefully, you know you had his ear if you got a characteristic wink, nod or "righto".
He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Kathleen R. Soule of Farmingdale; his four children, Alison S. Moser and partner James Porter of Poland and her children Emily and Jessica Moser; Wallace G. Soule, III and wife Ann and their daughters Elizabeth and Nora of Pownal; Winthrop P. Soule and his daughters Eleanor and Lucy of Freeport; Jonathan P. Soule and wife Susan Martling and their children Painter and Charlotte of Freeport; a stepdaughter Heather Lovejoy of Augusta; and siblings Martha Boyd of Virginia, Charles P. and Barbara Soule of Falmouth, Susan and Richard Hansen of Crawford, Colo., Benjamin A. Soule and Betsy Mcelvein of Yarmouth.
We invite you to join the family for a celebration of his life at the Freeport Old Town Hall (adjacent to the Hilton Garden Inn), on Thursday Sept., 22, from 1-4 p.m. Don a floppy white sailor hat and bring a memory or story to share!
