Long Description:
Right next to Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum is the Fishermen’s Memorial, which is dedicated to local fishermen who have died at sea. A portrait of Gary Thorbjornson is engraved on the face of the monument. Gary E. Thorbjornson, 41, died on July 13, 2005 when his fishing vessel “Sirius” sank. There were 2 survivors of the sinking. After his death, his family looked into the possibility of a memorial, and the logical place for it was at Marshall Point. On the back of the monument are the names of 11 local fishermen, with the years of their births, and the dates of their deaths. The fishermen’s memorial is an important monument to honor the fishermen of Port Clyde who have been lost at sea.
