Sebago Lake Drowning

Updated 6 years ago

Neighbors say the swimmer, 63-year-old Art Lester of Casco, headed out to his sailboat Thursday morning after it came off its mooring about 100 yards from the beach. He re-attached the boat to the mooring line, and was swimming back to shore when he disappeared in the water.

Lester was a longtime meteorological technician at the National Weather Service in Gray.

Al Wheeler, the meteorologist in charge at the station, said Lester was the voice of the station when it recorded its own radio weather broadcasts and that many listeners complained when he was replaced by a computer recording.
