1939 – 2015
ALFRED — Paul J. Gauvin, 76, a resident of Alfred, died peacefully with his wife by side, on Monday, Aug. 10, at the Newton Center in Sanford, where he was treated with love and dignity by the wonderful staff there.
Paul was born on March 8, 1939, in Lewiston, the son of Arthur and Antoinette (Boulay) Gauvin. After graduating from Lewiston High School, Paul attended Bliss Business School. He also served in the U.S. Army Reserve from 1962 to 1968.
Paul worked at the Canal National Bank and Depositors Trust and was later employed at the family business, Gauvin Realty Management and at Century 21 First Choice Realty in Gorham. With Paul’s outgoing personality, he was a natural fit for meeting families and clients as they pursued their first homes or businesses. Paul’s keen eyes could look at a building and know instinctively if it was built correctly.
Paul is survived by his wife of 10 years, Barbara Gauvin of Alfred; his siblings, Robert Gauvin and wife, Claudette, of Lewiston, Claire Gauvin of Lewiston and David Gauvin and wife, Dianne, of Brewer; and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his brother, Arthur Gauvin.
