Michael Peter Therriault
1952 – 2009
LEEDS — Michael “Mike” Therriault, 56, a resident of Lakeshore Drive, Leeds, passed away peacefully in his home early Monday, July 13.
He was born on July 24, 1952, in Lewiston, the son of Lucien and Anna Therriault. He attended schools in Lewiston. He enlisted in the U.S. Army on Sept. 28, 1970. After the Army, he worked for Lewiston Public Works and then moved on to become a skilled truck-driver for Country Kitchen Breads.
He was a member of the American Legion Post 0040 in Winthrop. In addition, he was a member of various Lewiston clubs such as the Lewiston Social Club and Le Club Pass-Temps Inc. He enjoyed outdoor recreation such as hunting, fishing and hanging out with his cherished friends and family. He taught his daughters how to fish, play several sports including softball and mini-golf and loved all day outings at the golf course with his daughter, Cherokee. Sometimes he even let her win…
Throughout his life, Mike was a devoted son to his parents, a loving father to his daughters and a most honored and beloved companion to countless friends and relatives. He appreciated the simple, yet most wonderful things in life, such as spending time with his best friends taking long rides through the mountains on his Harley; taking his dog Alex for a ride in the truck; and just kicking back and watching his favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt, win a race.
He was a most caring and generous man. He would give you the shirt off his back and the last dollar he had if he thought it would help you out and put a smile on your face. That’s “just the type of guy he was.” He will be sadly missed by everyone who had the good fortune to have known and loved him.
He is survived by daughters, Angel and Cherokee Russell; his aunts and uncles, Ada Williams, Alice Mae Saucier, Marion Eaton and Charles and Alice Williams; cousins, Jim Swift, Nancy and Kyle, as well as many more dear cousins throughout Maine and Connecticut; and dozens of close friends including, Gary Coulombe, Ken Therriault, Dave Labby, Gene LeCompte, Bob Sanders and many more.
He was predeceased by his parents, Lucien and Ana Therriault; brothers, Teddy and Deane Therriault; and many more beloved aunts, uncles and cousins and friends. He is happy to be reunited with those he loved and today we would like to think he is sitting somewhere in a lazy boy smiling while he listens to Ken Armstrong catch him up on all of the latest jokes and stories.
