COOPERSTOWN – Arnold “Arnie” L McLean Jr, 61, died unexpectedly, at his home Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
He was born March 13, 1961 in New Berlin, NY to Arnold “Cork” and Dorothy “Dot” McLean.
He was a friend to all and will be missed for his exceptional sense of humor, as well as his willingness to help anyone in need. He lived life with a strong determination, overcoming many health obstacles to the amazement of his physicians.
A lifelong resident of Otsego County, he first worked with his Dad at Phillips Lumber Company in Hartwick, helped with the family logging business and worked with many area contractors before starting his own excavating business known as ARNIE’S MINI EXCAVATOR in 1999.
JEFFERSON – Linda J. Hall, a native of Cooperstown who resided for many years in Jefferson, passed away in the late hours of Monday, January 31, 2022.
Born December 31, 1936, in Cooperstown, she was a daughter of Loren C. Lee, Sr. and Florence M. (Bresee) Lee.
Linda was passionate about a great many things, of course first and foremost her family.
She also really loved cars and always drove them way too fast. She had an uncanny knack while driving at full speed of spotting deer and squirrels at the side of the road before harm could come to them or her.
She loved all kinds of music, especially Rock and Roll, and always played it way too loud.
