SOUTH PASADENA, Fla. – Paul E. Pepin, 74, of Lewiston and South Pasadena, Fla., passed away suddenly Friday, March 27, in Florida.

He was born in Lewiston, on Feb. 2 1935, son of the late Ludger and Leona Pepin. He married Lorraine St. Laurent on April 14, 1956. For most of his life, he worked as a lineman for power utility companies.

He retired at the age of 58, at which time he and his wife Lorraine traveled the state of Florida in their motor home before settling in South Pasadena. He was also referred to as “happy Papy,” enjoyed hunting and snowmobiling, before his retirement.

He was a member of the Elks Lodge, where he enjoyed playing cards, but most of all he enjoyed his time spent on the golf course. He was so looking forward to getting back to the campground Hid’n Pines in Old Orchard Beach, where he worked and lived in the summers. He was also looking forward to seeing his favorite buddies, Brian and Arthur, at the campground.

Papy was a bright light to everyone he met and will be greatly missed for his positive outlook on life and his great sense of humor. Most special to him was the time he spent with his family, especially his grandchildren, who he thought the world of.

He leaves his wife of 53 years, Lorraine; two daughters, Paula and her husband, Steve Tantillo, of Greene and Lisa and her husband, Denis Turgeon, of Winter Park, Fla.; five grandchildren, Jessica Turgeon of Portland, Alexandra Turgeon of Rhode Island, Brittany Turgeon of Florida, and Aimee and Anthony Tantillo of Greene; sisters, Eleanor Gurn, Gertrude Desjardins and Germaine Charpentier; and a brother, Albert Pepin.

He was predeceased by several brothers and a sister.
