Kenneth Cory Carville


AUBURN — Kenneth Cory Carville of Lisbon, passed with dignity into eternal life on May 8 at Hospice House.

He was born April 16. 1964, in Lisbon Falls, to Roland and Leona (Goss) Carville, the youngest of seven children. He attended Lisbon Schools and continued his education in the United Stated Army. After his discharge, he returned to his hometown. He was employed at Jones & Vining and the Gypsum Mill. He also labored in the bottle redemption industry, which he took very seriously, and where he earned the name “Ken the Redeemer,” given to him by a dear friend at 99.9, the Wolf.

His passion included country music; Nascar; word puzzles and reading. A nature enthusiast, he enjoyed hiking and camping trips with his most dearest friends. He also loved to write and he kept many notebooks filled with stories, lists, poetry, scripture, and lyrics. One such favorite, “God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy,” comes from a Billy Currington song.

Immediate family survivors include his parents; five sisters, Maureen Carville, Donna Morse, Gertrude Duval, Suanna Edwards, and Rebecca Lelansky; and brother, James Carville, and their families; including his many nieces and nephews, who will fondly remember their Uncle Kenny playing Santa Clause at family Christmas parties.

Well known throughout the community, he leaves behind a diverse blend of family members, friends, and acquaintances and will be greatly missed. Methodist by baptism and having great faith, Kenny knew that life on earth was simply a temporary home; he is now truly home. Sincere thanks go to the staff and management of Hospice House for their care and compassion.
