MARC A. MORIN
1940 – 2010
AUBURN – Marc A. Morin, 70, a resident of Bear Pond Road in North Turner, died early Saturday, March 20, surrounded by his family at Hospice House of Androscoggin after a short illness.
He was born April 25, 1939, in St. Côme de Beauce, Quebec, Canada, the son of Leopold and Rosée (Gilbert) Morin. He attended school in St. Côme de Beauce. On June 2, 1962 in St. Georges de Beauce, Quebec, he married Lise Morin. He worked as a saw filer starting in 1960 for Veilleux Lumber, then for Highland Lumber in Dixfield, and Penley Corp., in West Paris, until his retirement in 1999. He was a former member of the North Turner Fire Department and N.E. Saw Filers Association. He was a member of the Turner Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club and Turner Highlands Golf Course. He enjoyed golfing with his buddies every morning at Turner Highlands Golf Course; hunting every season on Bear Mountain and Torrey Hill, he bagged his final deer this last season. He also loved snowmobiling, and put on many miles every winter with his good friend, Bob Walton. He was a season ticket holder from day one and avid fan, along with his sister, Monique, of the Lewiston Maineiacs Hockey Team. His son, Steve, drove a stock car at Oxford Plains Speedway, built by his dad and Uncle Guy, and Marc always looked forward to the time he spent at the track. He and Lise enjoyed spending time in Zephyrhills, Fla., where they had been going for the past four years, and also made many great friends there. The most cherished moments for him were when he was with his family, and he loved being with his grandsons, Levi and Chad, following them all over the state in their sporting endeavors. He not only supported his grandsons’ events, but also took the time to go to games of his grandsons’ friends, his son’s friend’s children and those of his nieces and nephews.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Lise Morin of North Turner; his son, Steve Morin and his wife, Irene, of North Turner; two grandsons, Levi and Chad Morin of North Turner; five brothers, Normand Morin and his wife, Loulou, George Morin and his wife, Ghyslaine, Gaetan Morin and his wife, Gisele, and Pierre Morin, all of Quebec, Canada and Guy Morin and his wife, Yvette, of Turner; three sisters, Lise and her husband, Martin Nadeau, Manon and her husband, Richard Morin, both of Quebec, Canada, Monique and her husband, Ralph Walton, of Hartford; and many nieces and nephews.
