Richard A. St. Pierre, 76

SCARBOROUGH — Richard A. “Dick” St. Pierre, 76, died at the Maine Veterans Home in Scarborough on Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, after a nearly 30-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

He was born Sept. 6, 1940, in Westbrook, the son of the late Albert and Phyllis (Douglass) St. Pierre.

Richard graduated from Westbrook High School, Class of 1958. After graduation, he served with the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1966. In 1962, he married Margaret (Hawkes) St. Pierre. They were married for 25 years and remained friends until his passing. He began working for Soule Glass & Paint Company in 1962 as an apprentice glazier. He continued working for the Soule family years later as a job estimator and glass and metal specialist for Sigco until he could no longer work.

Richard’s lifelong passions were hunting and fishing. He was a proud member for many years of the Biggest Bucks In Maine Club, the Maine Black Bear Club and the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine. He took great pride in being a part of “The Hunting Group” for so many years with his closest friends Bob, Bill, Harry and Bruce. Years ago, he built his dream camp on a fishing pond in northern Maine, where he and his family made years of memories camping, fishing and hunting.

Richard was predeceased by his brother and best friend, Robert St. Pierre; his sister, Betty Freeman; and his daughter, Patricia St. Pierre.

He is survived by his sister, Phyllis Hodgdon of Kezar Falls; his daughter, Karen St. Pierre-Crawford of Raymond; his granddaughter, Jessica Kinder and his grandson, Mason Barry, and two great-grandchildren, Jack and Juliette Kinder, all of Naples.

A memorial service will be celebrated at noon on Saturday, Aug. 19, at Dolby Funeral Chapel, 434 River Road, Windham, where a period of visitation will be held from 11 a.m. until the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, donations in tribute may be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research at michaeljfox.org or 1-800-708-7644.
