Winterport - Mason James Kervin-Hoad passed away peacefully in the arms of his family at 4:12 p.m. February 8, 2020 at Northern Lights Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine. He was born suddenly at 27 weeks on January 27, 2020 at 4:55 a.m. Mason weighed 2 pounds 6 ounces and was 14 inches long. Our tiny baby Mason looked perfect in every way but after he was stabilized in the NICU we were informed there were serious complications due to his premature birth.
Mason left an impression on many in his 12 days on this earth, his strength and perseverance allowed his family time to travel to meet him and fall in love. Mason melted the hearts of all that crossed his path. Mason’s parents were both able to stay by his side almost every hour of his short life.
Mason’s parents would like to thank both our family members and friends, some were able to come and visit Mason, others for providing support, condolences and encouraging words. We also wish to express our gratitude to the Doctors, Nurses, and any other staff we encountered at Northern Lights EMMC Hospital during Masons stay there. The NICU staff especially took the time and care needed to guide and support us through what was a very difficult situation. Special thanks also to Bella Baby Photography, the photographers were kind, empathetic and gentle with everyone present, they moved about the room in such a way we all forgot they were there. The photos they took truly captured precious moments we can cherish forever.
Mason is survived by, his parents, Samuel Hoad and Lori Kervin; grandparents, Stephen and Helen Hoad; Edward and Sandra Kervin; sisters Ariel Kervin and Scarlett Hoad; brother Ashton Hoad; uncle Adam Kervin and spouse Amanda; aunts Rose Stevens and her spouse Sara, Penni Hoad and significant other Jacob Foisey; along with many other family members and friends.
Mason is predeceased by his great grandparents, James and Jacqueline Lajoie, John and Marie Kervin, Eliane and Ralph Plante, Paul Hoad and first wife Mary along with his second wife Michelina; his aunt Emma Hoad; uncle Jarod Kervin; and other extended family members.
