RANGELEY — Steven Wade Sargent, 60, of Rangeley, passed away Thursday, Jan. 4.

Steven was born Oct. 31, 1957, in Farmington, a son of Ronald W. and Maxine (Eustis) Sargent. He graduated from Rangeley High School in 1976 and attended Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute in South Portland, earning an associate degree in building construction in 1978. Building had always been a part of his family and his childhood, as he apprenticed with his father Ronald. He went on to become an amazing contractor known for his remarkable log home designs and stone fireplaces. He was a superb builder with a resume that included Saddleback Mountain’s base lodge. Steven was also a Maine real estate broker and EMT for the Rangeley Ambulance. He was one of Rangeley’s early snowmobile trail groomers with his company “Smoooth Trails” in the late ‘70s and ‘80s.

Steven grew up in Rangeley where he loved being surrounded by family and friends. His passions included hunting and fishing at Big Falls “Lost Brook Camp,” cribbage, photography, building furniture, poker at Nobb Hill and cooking the well-known Sargent French Fries. He videotaped special occasions for friends and relatives as well as all sporting events that his sons participated in. Steven was a very proud father who loved his boys, Devon and Regan with all his heart. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Dora; sons Devon and Regan; stepchildren Brandi Hau and Brody Cousineau; mother Maxine; brothers Craig and his wife, Sharon and Eric; grandsons Max, Dominic and Alex Hau, Kole, Dane and Reed Cousineau and many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his father, Ronald, and sister-in- law, Kelly.
