BANGOR — The artist who designed the Paul Bunyan statue in Bangor has died.
Local legend Normand Martin passed away on Friday at the age of 95.
ABC 7 and Fox 22 had the opportunity to speak to the creator of the city’s larger-than-life statue in February, and though he suffered from early dementia, Martin never forgot the statue.
“My kids love it, ya know. They brag about it, ya know, what he is. And that always makes you feel good, ya know?” he said.
Martin’s legacy will live on in Bangor as long as Paul Bunyan stands tall.
