LEWISTON – A funeral Mass honoring the life of Romeo B. Gamache was celebrated on Tuesday at St. Joseph’s Church, after prayers at the Pinette & Lynch Funeral Home. The Rev. Nathan March con-celebrated the Mass with the Rev. Albert Roux. Delegations present at the Mass and during visitation were the firefighters from the town of Lisbon. At the beginning of Mass, Romeo’s children, Leland Gamache, Sandra Albert, Deborah Gamache-Merrill and Katherine Starbird draped their father’s casket with the burial pall that commemorates their father’s baptism into new life. During Mass the readings were done by Romeo’s granddaughter-in-law, Michelle Gamache and his granddaughter, Jessica Gamache. The intercessions were read by his grandson, Christopher Gamache. The offertory was brought to the altar by Romeo’s brother, Rueben Gamache and his sister, Clara Gartley. Words of remembrance were expressed by Romeo’s grandson, Rudy Albert II. Committal services with military honors will be held at a later date in the spring at St. Ann’s Cemetery. Pallbearers were Chris Gamache, Brian Ryerson, Matthew Starbird, Rudy Albert II, Jessica Gamache, Becky Albert, Michael Bolduc and Daniel Gamache. A reception of fellowship was held at the Ramada Inn after the funeral Mass.
