1974 – 2016

DALLAS PLANTATION — Jonathan B. Fortin, 41, a resident of Wilton and formerly of Turner, died unexpectedly on Saturday, Jan. 9, doing what he loved — cross-country skiing at Saddleback.

He was born Oct. 3, 1974, in Lewiston, the son of Steven and Jane (Moody) Fortin. Jon was a 1992 graduate of Leavitt Area High School and continued his education at Central Maine Technical College and Southern Maine Technical College. He worked as a manager at Creative Wood Products in Wilton.

Jonathan loved the outdoors — skiing, skateboarding, gardening, playing disc golf and spending time at his family’s cottage at Bailey Island. Jonathan was known to family and friends as the “Gentle Giant” because of his loving and caring ways. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

He is survived by his parents, Steve and Jane Fortin of Turner; his soulmate, Donna Irish of Wilton; his sister, Angela (Fortin) St. Pierre; his niece, Megan St. Pierre of Livermore; maternal grandmother, Lee Moody of Turner; aunts, Nancy Fortin of Auburn, Janet Moody and Laura Bradley of Oregon, and Donna Legere and her husband, Fred, and his uncle, Bruce Moody, all of North Carolina; his special cousins and their families; and his loving animals, his dog, Vida, and cats, Maple and Moose.

He was predeceased by his grandfather, William Moody; and grandmother, Carmel Fortin; and his faithful friend, his beloved dog, Jake.
