1920 – 2014

AUBURN — Lorenzo J. Kirouac, 93, formerly of Lewiston passed away peacefully on Friday, July 25, with his family by his side.

He was born in Lewiston on Oct. 18, 1920, to Valeda and Joseph Kirouac. Larry was very active in sports in his youth and was very proud that he played hockey and other sports for the St. Mary’s Cadets.

Larry served with the U.S. Army in World War II from 1942 to1945 and was very proud to have served under Gen. George Patten’s command. After returning from the war, Larry met and married the love of his life, Noella Baillargon. They were married on June 7, 1947, and were happily married for 51 years until her death in 1998.

After the war, Larry was employed by Rose Label Co. for approximately 18 years, then went to work for Diamond Machine for the next 20 years retiring at 62. Boredom got to him, so a year later he started working part time for Pinette Funeral Home where he finally retired at age 85.

Larry loved all the simple things in life, one of them being family barbecues with the whole family, making sure the grandkids and great-grandkids were around him. He was a sports fan and loved to watch many different sports, but his favorite team was the Boston Bruins. Larry was also very actively involved in anything to do with the war veterans and their activities. He volunteered hundreds of hours to help out wherever it was needed.

He is survived by two sons, Robert and life partner, Jill Eastman, Donald and wife, Michele; three grandchildren, Stacey, Jeffrey and wife, Becky, and Brian; four great-grandchildren, Julian, Lucas, Morgan and Tyler.

We will miss you, Dad / Pepere.

He was predeceased by his parents, his wife Noella and his brother Normand.

The family would like to thank the staff at Clover Manor for their care and compassion and Dr. Jeffrey Brown and his staff for their many years of supportive care.
