AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Governor LePage announced late Tuesday that Maj. Gregory Sanborn, a longtime Maine Game Warden, has passed away after a battle with cancer.

Sanborn, a native of Fryeburg, was 47-years-old and served with the Maine Warden Service for 23 years.

Governor LePage said in a statement, "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. 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, February 9th.
