Oakland, ME- James Alan Wrigley passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 23, 2015. James was born April 9, 1967, in Waterville, ME. He grew up in Oakland, ME and attended Oakland schools, graduating from Messalonskee High School, Class of 1985. \r\n\r\nAfter working in the woods for a few years, he went into well drilling with James Philbrick, and then spent several years with Yankee Well Drilling before deciding to branch out on his own. He owned and operated James Wrigley Well Drilling for many years. On rare occasions when he wasn’t drilling, James would most likely be helping friends out of a jam. He was a jack of all trades and had mastered many of them. From houses to pieces of machinery, if he had an image in his mind of what the solution to a problem was, he could build it from scratch, but don’t look for a blueprint. \r\n\r\nHe is survived by his wife, Lisa Stevens and young daughters, Olivia Jayne Wrigley and Miranda Marie Wrigley; his grown children, Jamie Lee Gill and husband, Jake, Stephanie Dawn Wrigley and granddaughter, Alyssa Cassadee Wrigley, and Caleb James Wrigley and fiancé, Noelle; his parents, Dana and Marie Wrigley; brother Dana Wrigley Jr.; aunts Cheryl Levine and husband, Richard, Betty Pierce and husband, Tom, Brenda York, Bonnie Willette and husband, John, Elaine York, and Lynn Benedict and husband, Bob; many cousins on both sides of the family; mother-in-law, Nancy Duplessie; and brothers-in-law, Shawn Stevens and wife, Denise, and Barry Duplessie.\r\n\r\nJames was predeceased by his aunts, Alice Wrigley and Beverly Wrigley; and uncles, Stanley Wrigley and Glenwood Murray. \r\n\r\nVisitation will be Saturday, August 1, 2015, at New Beginnings Church on Upper Main Street in Waterville at 10 a.m. followed by the service at 11a.m. A fellowship luncheon will follow.\r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, please make a donation towards a College Fund that is being set up for James’s younger daughters.
