AUGUSTA – Richard A. Lavoie, 71, died on January 31, 2022. He was born on August 25, 1950, the son of Alcide and Mary Lavoie.
Richard, also known as “Dick”, grew up in Bristol and graduated from high school. Life hasn’t always been easy for Dick; as a teenager he lost both parents. Later in life, he was lucky enough to meet his “adopted” family, the Willetts. Dick resided most of his life in Augusta and was employed at International Paper in Jay where he took early retirement.
Some of Dick’s favorite pastimes include watching the lobster boats work (and chewing the fat with the local lobsters), a trip to Florida with the Willett family, and going to vintage car shows. Dick enjoyed old cars and enjoyed going to shows whenever he could. He will be remembered as a kind man with a good sense of humor.
He was predeceased by his parents; and good friend, Juanita Mayberry.
He is survived by his “family”, Tammie Willett and her husband, Dwight; their children, Juanita Blondin and her husband Derek, and DJ Willett; with babies, Bentley Blondin and “Little DJ”.
No visiting time or funeral is scheduled for Dick.
