Duncan Bartlett MacPhie, 66, a resident of Harrison, Maine, and formerly Kennebunk, died Monday, April 12, 2021, at Maine Medical Center in Portland after a brief illness.

Duncan was born in Boston, Sept. 17, 1954, a son of Rodney P. and Nancy (Farley) MacPhie, Sr., and graduated from Pelham High Technical School in Pelham, New York. Duncan worked as a printer in the reprographics department for L.L.Bean for 29 years.

Duncan was a long-time firefighter with the Kennebunk Fire Department and more recently was active on both the Harrison and Bridgton fire departments. During his years living in the Kennebunk area, he was a dedicated member of the Washington Hose Fire Co., along with his sons. Duncan is remembered by the Harrison Fire Department for his generous equipment donations and the food and snacks he often brought to meetings and trainings. Duncan was known for his charm and generosity.

Duncan grew up in the “Red House” at Kennebunk Beach and played golf at Webhannet Golf Club from the time he could walk. It is known that he had the nicest swing of his siblings. Duncan loved the outdoors, whether that was fishing with his sons on the ocean or working outside at Sally’s and his horse farm, Wild Run Farm, in Lyman.

He loved creating and building things, ranging from their beautiful farm to tinkering with his truck. He truly loved caring for his animals whether they were horses, goats, pigs, dogs, cats or chickens – Duncan loved them all.

Duncan was a loving and caring person. His friends remember him as honest and friendly, with a great sense of humor, and above all else a loyal friend. He loved his family and was so very proud of his Scottish heritage and family golfing history. Duncan will be remembered at the first tee, on the ocean, at the fire department, and with his animals.

He was predeceased by his parents.

He is survived by his sons, Justin B. MacPhie of Bethel, Maine, and Tyler D. MacPhie of Jackson Hole, Wyoming; his grandson, Conner MacPhie of Windham; his brother, Rodney P. MacPhie, Jr. of Scarborough, (wife, Adrienne); his sister Caren MacPhie Lederer of Kennebunk (husband, Tom); former wife Sally Gantt MacPhie of Bethel.
