LEWISTON – Normand Lamontagne passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 4, at home surrounded by loved ones, after a long and courageous battle with colon cancer. Throughout his illness, he had an undying positive attitude, an amazing strength, and sense of humor that was an inspiration to those who knew him. Not only was he a husband and father, but he was also a close friend to his wife and children. He will be missed more than can be imagined.

He was born on March 21, 1956, in Lewiston, the son of Jeanne (Carrier) and Ernest Lamontagne. He was raised in New Auburn and graduated from Edward Little High School and the University of Maine at Orono.

He worked as a physical education teacher of grades K-6 for many years as well as a gymnastics instructor, before opening his own business. He was an active part of the home improvement industry in the Lewiston-Auburn community for more than 20 years, beginning with Paint Plus and more recently Eith’s Home Decorating Outlet and Floors Unlimited. He enjoyed his customers and the work he did, and always prided himself in a job well done.

He enjoyed spending time at camp (his heaven on Earth), time on the boat, working on endless projects, time with family and friends, and his golden retriever, Evie. He enjoyed numerous physical activities including mountain biking, kayaking and running. He had a wonderful way with children, and his grandchildren adored their Pepere Norm and loved spending time with him.

He is survived by his wife and angel, Sandra; stepchildren, Nichole and Steven Gendron; sons, Jason and his wife, Jen, of Litchfield and Steven and his wife, Shannon, of Auburn; daughters, Jill Harrigan and her partner, Amy, of Portland and Jenna Lamontagne of Winthrop; four grandchildren, Cora, Ema, Clara and Maxim; his father, Ernest of Auburn; his two brothers, Donald and his wife, Gisele, of Auburn and Paul Lamontagne of Falmouth; as well as two nephews, Michael and Matthew.

He was predeceased by his mother.

The family would like to thank the staff at Central Maine Hematology for the wonderful treatment that Norm received, the Gibson Pavilion at Maine Medical Center for their exceptional care during Norm’s multiple stays there, and Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice for the dignity, respect and warmth that they showed to Norm and his family.

The family would also like to thank Susan Oakes for her support, love, and dedication through all of this.
