1948 – 2013

BRUNSWICK — Laurier “Larry” Joseph Jean, 65, of Harpswell, died suddenly on Thursday, Oct. 24, at Mid Coast Hospital due to complications from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

He was born to Fernand and Therese Landry Jean on Aug. 29, 1948. He graduated from St. Dominic Regional High School in 1966, attended Bliss College and volunteered in the Army in 1967. He was honorably discharged in 1969 as a member of the 82nd Airborne. On Nov. 15, 1969, he married his high school sweetheart, Anita Ouellette Jean.

In 1971, he started his business in residential waterproofing, known as Jean’s Waterproofing. By 1988, his business had grown from residential to strictly commercial and industrial waterproofing. He developed an expertise in this field and would often work on large manufacturing facilities, dams and nuclear power plants. In 2000, he expanded his business by opening an office in New Braunfels, Texas. His national reputation for waterproofing created opportunities for him to work throughout the U.S. In 2007, he sold his business due to health reasons.

Larry always made an impression on others with his quick and creative thinking.

Survivors include his wife, Anita, of 43 years; son, Eric Jean and his wife, Carrie, of New Braunfels, Texas; daughter, Nicole Jean of Quincy, Mass.; grandson, Ethan Jean of New Braunfels, Texas; sisters, Diane Morin of Auburn and Jacqueline Violette and her husband, John, of Lewiston; brother, Gilbert Jean of St. George, Utah; sister-in-law, Jill Jean of Robbinston; brother-in-law, Normand Ouellete and his wife, Nora, of Dedham, Mass.; and several aunts, many cousins and several nieces and nephews.
