Leo R. Caron

1929 – 2009

LEWISTON — Leo R. Caron, 79, our beloved husband, daddy, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, June 23, at home with his family by his side after a long illness.
He was born in Lewiston, July 23, 1929, the son of Joseph and Valeda (Levasseur) Caron. He married the former, Barbara Pinette, July 28, 1956. Together they built a beautiful life together and resided in a big beautiful farmhouse that he restored on his own. He had four children of whom he was very proud, and in return his children adored him more then anything. He taught his family by example to love and respect one another. He also was a very proud and strong man who worked hard all his life to provide for his family working in construction, building homes and remolding them. He was a self made general contractor who’s love for working with wood made him an exquisite wood craftsman.
Dad was always there for us no matter what the problem was, and in a heartbeat drop what he was doing when it came to his family in need. Not a day went by when we didn’t visit him or call him to say, “I love you, Daddy.” He would always say, “I love you too, be careful driving.”
He was a member of Calvary United Methodist Church of Lewiston, the Masonic Lodge of Auburn; the Kora Temple, where he sang as a member of the Kora Chanters. He also participated with Community Little Theater, and was a member of the Pine Tree Gypsy RV Club.
Survivors include his wife of 52 years, Barbara; his four children, Lisa Delorme and companion, Don Hersom, Heidi-Sue Stuart and companion, John Letourneau, Bonnie-Jo and her husband, Terry and Scott Caron and fiancée, Wendy Mason; his grandchildren, Melissa, Sarah, Corey, Meghan, Beth, Adam, Jordan, Austin, Jeff, and Brianna; great-grandchildren, Lacie, Evan, and Eva; two brothers, Richard and Robert Caron; and a sister, Dorothy Dewitt.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by two sisters; three brothers; a son in law, Conrad Delorme; and a granddaughter, Hannah Brooke Stuart.
