CLINE, Skipper – At the Charlotte County Hospital on Friday, February 19, 2021, Winston Merrill “Skipper” Cline, husband of the late Marion (Matthews) Cline of Campobello, NB. Born in Campobello, he is the son of the late Maurice and Carrie (Lank) Cline.

  Skipper was a fisherman most of his life. He owned his own dragging boat, the Captain of  “the Miss Cline” from  1963 until he sold it in 1998.
