LEWISTON – Richard Francis Thereau Jr., 37, of Byron, died Saturday, July 10, at Central Maine Medical Center, Lewiston, as a result of a car accident.

A lifelong resident of the area, he resided on Route 17, Byron.

He was born Oct. 21, 1966, in Rumford, a son of Richard F. and Christeen True Thereau Sr. He graduated in 1985 from Mexico High School, where he took the NOVA Program of logging, in which he made a career. He was a very professional logger, working for many logging companies in the area, the most current being with Andy Irish of East Peru.

He enjoyed the Old Country songs and the outdoors, including fishing, snowmobiling, four-wheeling and hunting, especially the year he and his dad got a moose.

Richard will be missed very much by all and by his dog, Jake; and also by Happy and Scrappy, the little bunnies he got for his great-nephews, Tylar and Chanse. “We love you, Uncle Dickie.”

Survivors include his parents, Richard and Christeen Thereau Sr. of Byron; two sisters, Linda Hemingway of Lewiston, and Tammi Thereau of Byron; a brother, Stephen Hemingway of Lewiston; nieces, Bandi and Deseree Whyte; and great-nephews, Matthew, Tylar, Chanse, Tristin, and Tory.
