Obituary of Jason E. Farnsworth

Please share a memory of Jason to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Jason ”Jake” Eugene Farnsworth

On January 22, 2024, Jason passed away at the Waldo County Hospital in Belfast, Maine.

Jason was born in Bar Harbor, Maine on December 6th, 1955. He was the fourth child of Charlotte Rich.  


As a child, Jason loved playing baseball and being involved in the Boy Scouts. He was once given a yellow Tonka Truck as a gift, which he slept with at night.

As an adult, he enjoyed riding his Harley all over the United States and Canada. His riding partners, that you could usually find by his side, were his beloved sister, Betty, and her husband

Barry.  He was always happy when his niece, Chantelle would visit - with a plate of brownies in hand.


He enjoyed gardening, fishing and clamming. He took pride in being able to live off the land as a way to provide for his family. Jason was also proudly a Black Belt in Karate.

Jason worked as a fisherman, as well as a carpenter. He would blueprint and design homes, something he took a lot of pride in. Many homes he had designed and built can be seen on

Mount Desert Island and throughout Hancock County.


Jason predeceased his mother, Charlotte Rich. He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Farnsworth of Bucksport, Maine; his children, Willam Bishko and his partner, Elizabeth

Bridges of Maine; Lanicka Lindsey of Washington; Brendan Farnsworth and his wife, Victoria Mangio of Washington, DC; and his daughter, Lauren Farnsworth and her Husband, Jon Rice

of Maine.  Jason leaves behind seven grandchildren: Hayley and Willam Bishko; Jade d’Entremont; Emma, Florence and Jakob Lindsey, and Lily Rice.  He is survived by his siblings, Betty, Laura, Hazel, Leslie, and Bessie. He is also survived by a multitude of nieces, nephews and cousins.


A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer of 2024 in Maine.  Memories and condolences may be shared on his tribute wall.

“May the sunshine warm upon your face. May the rains fall upon your fields. And until we meet

again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.”

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The Maine Coalition To End Domestic Violence.
