Maine Game Warden Sanborn Dies at 47

AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage is among many in Maine mourning the loss of longtime State Game Warden Major Gregory “Gregg” Sanborn, who died today after a courageous battle against cancer.

Sanborn, 47 and a native of Fryeburg, was a 23-year veteran of the Maine Warden Service, most recently its second in command.

“Major Sanborn embodied what it means to be a Maine Game Warden, and was a true ambassador of our great outdoors and our entire State,” said Governor LePage.”I had the privilege to meet Gregg several times and was always humbled by his commitment to public service and his passion for life, even as he fought this horrible disease. The First Lady and I extend our thoughts and prayers to his family, and his extended family at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.”

Services for Major Sanborn will be at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy on Saturday.
