He was born in Lewiston on April 24, 1948, a son of the late Henri and Jeanne (Groleau) Levesque. He attended local schools, graduating from Lewiston High School in 1966.

On Aug. 25, 1973, he married his lifelong love, Deborah Lynne Worthington, and together they raised their three boys, Shawn, Keith and Ryan.
