Obituary

Carl W Shields, Sr, of Bristol Ct., passed away on July 2, 2021 after a brief stay at Ingraham Manor. Born in Dyer Brook, Maine in 1927, he was the son of the late Hiram Dow and Margaret Mae (Cameron) Shields. He began on a farm in Maine, was a member of the Merchant Marines in WWII, and an airplane pilot. He is survived by his forever beloved spouse of 74 years, Elfrieda (Tee-Dee) (Brayall) Shields, and their children: Brenda Joy Senesac and her husband Bob, who is like another son to him; an infant son Clarence who died in 1950; Carl Jr and his husband and Dad’s dear friend Harvey Brown; his beloved son Hilton David who lost his dear wife Paula (Dutil) Shields in 2019; Carl’s youngest and most beloved son Steven Michael also passed away in 2019 leaving a beloved daughter-in-law Patricia (Duncan) Shields. Carl was beloved and revered by his many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Carl moved to CT in 1951 with a promise of a job for General Motors at New Departure where he worked for 45 years. Carl worked tirelessly to single handedly build a home from scratch, for his wife and children. During his life, Carl became adept at many skills including cabinet making, house building and riding his beloved tractors. Carl and wife Tee-Dee had an extensive friend and family network by being a true friend in every sense of the word, to al they met. Carl and Tee-Dee enjoyed many years of fun and adventure in Ct. and at their camp in Mt Chase Maine. Carl and Tee-Dee enjoyed hearing live country music groups in Maine since they considered these groups to be family. Carl had an affinity for animals in general and in particular those in trouble having many Boston Terrier’s right up until the time of his death. After his retirement, more time was spent in Maine at their “Rainbow’s End” camp in Mt. Chase. Never a truer, more loyal, hardworking or more honest soul lived than Carl, and sometimes he said his truth whether you wanted to hear it or not, but his work ethic, commitment to family, and love for what was right and good in this world could never be questioned. As his children, we were blessed to hear only positive comments concerning our Dad as we traveled through life. He was a lifelong Odd Fellow, 32nd Degree Mason, and the type of man who gave without asking if a friend needed help. There will be visitation at DuPont Funeral Home, 25 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, on Friday, July 9, from 5-7 p.m. with a short memorial service at 7pm. A subsequent service will be held at the Island Falls Baptist Church in ME at a date to be announced, after which, interment will occur in the Dyer Brook Cemetery. Carl would wish that people interested to do so make donations to one of his favorite charities: The Shriners Children’s Hospital, or the Audubon Society.

I knew Carl and had contact with him from the mid 1970's to the mid 1990's.
Carl was a wonderful customer and patient of mine ; as well as a kind and decent man .
Whenever Carl came into my pharmacy ;
I always enjoyed stepping away from the work counter to have a short chat with him .
