Dennis L. Frye

RAYMOND — Dennis L. Frye died peacefully on Monday, May 30, 2011, while at the Springbrook Center after a very courageous battle with lung cancer.

He was born on Aug. 3, 1948, in Gray, the son of Lyman M. and Mildred (Berry) Frye.

At a young age, he developed a love of the outdoors, spending most of his free time fishing, hunting or just enjoying life at his family camp in Byron. He also developed at an early age a love of anything having an engine, which in turn led him to work at various jobs throughout his life all centered around automotive or heavy equipment repair. He met his wife of nearly 27 years, the former Kathleen Bridge, at one of these jobs.

He was predeceased by his father, Lyman; and brother, Phillip.

Dennis is survived by his wife and best friend, Kathleen of North Raymond; his beloved mother, Mildred Frye, also of North Raymond; his sons, Adam Frye of Naples and James Frye of Buxton; his stepson, Victor Mancini of Cabot, Ark.; his six grandchildren; his two brothers, Owen Nichols and James Frye, both of North Raymond. Dennis was loved by all who met him and will be sorely missed by all, including many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.

Visitation was on Friday at Wilson Funeral Home, 24 Shaker Road, Gray, where a funeral was held on Saturday. Committal was in Raymond Hill Cemetery. The Rev. Donald Mayberry officiated.

Should anyone desire, donations in lieu of flowers may be made in his memory to: The Senior Transportation Program, P.O. Box 816, Bridgton, ME 04009.
