Bradford Lanoue, 68

Bradford Lanoue, 68, died peacefully on Tuesday, June 30, 2015, at Bridgton Health Care Center in Bridgton of complications from a bicycle accident in 2014.

Born in Weymouth, Mass., to Russell R. Lanoue and Jeanette L. Lanoue (Durgin), he lived in Braintree, Mass., until the age of 13, then moved to Santuit, Mass., and later to Marstons Mills, Mass.

Brad had many different jobs — caddy, greens keeper, property caretaker, machinist, farmer, cook, working on the railroad and B-bus driver. Bradford enjoyed summer and winter outdoor activities and tinkering with his 1983 Ford Ranger diesel pickup.

In 1987, he married Gail D. Marcus and lived in Hyannis, Mass., until 2003, when they moved to Denmark.

Besides his wife, Brad is survived by his father, Russell Lanoue; children Denise Ebig of Pa., Paul Lanoue of Marstons Mills, Mass., Heather Miller of Plymouth, Mass., Nicholas Marcus of West Yarmouth, Mass., and George Marcus of Brewster, Mass.; brother Richard Lanoue of Viera, Fla.; sister Nancy Minnigerode of Marstons Mills, Mass; and nine grandchildren.
