LEWISTON — Bertrand Antoine Lampron, 78, of Lewiston, passed away at Central Maine Medical Center on Sunday, Dec. 3, after a short period of declining health due to heart disease. Born in Lewiston on Jan. 16, 1939, Bert was the son of Leo and Dora (Cote) Lampron. He graduated from Lewiston High School, Class of ’57.
During his younger years, Bert worked various construction jobs, and then for many years up to his retirement he worked for IPAC Fabrics, Inc. (formerly Quinco Fabrics, Inc.) in Lewiston. In retirement, he worked part-time for United Ambulance Wheelchair Division, where he greatly enjoyed working with the clients and his co-workers. Bert was an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan; he especially loved his yearly trip to Boston with the girls to watch a game at Fenway Park. He often mentioned that nothing compared to seeing the game at the ballpark. He truly enjoyed spending time with his nephews, niece, family and friends, and he would have done anything for anyone. He had many interests, which included fishing, hunting, reading, golfing, playing cards, visiting the racetrack and listening to all kinds of music. Bert enjoyed the weekly crossword puzzles in the Sunday newspaper; he was proficient in always completing the puzzle in record time.
He is survived by his sister-in-law, Yolande Lampron; his nephew, Marcel Lampron and wife, Debbie; his niece, Nicole Martin and husband, Jeff; his nephew, Richard Lampron and wife, Heather; his great-nephew, Greg Lampron and wife, Shannon; and his two great-nieces, Gabrielle and Olivia Lampron. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Lucille Chilton; and a brother, Raymond Lampron.
Family would like to thank the medical staff at Central Maine Medical Center Cardiovascular Unit, third floor, Young Wing, for the compassion, care and support they provided to Bert during his struggle with heart failure. The family also thanks his wonderful friends from United Ambulance who visited him and provided company and support during his final weeks of life.
