LISBON FALLS — Lee A. Neureuther, 69, passed away at his home in Lisbon Falls, surrounded by his family, Monday, May 7, following a long illness.

He was born April 6, 1949, in Portland to Charles and Evelyn (Fowler) Neureuther. He attended Lisbon High School and enlisted in service to his country in 1968. He was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force at the rank of sergeant in 1974.

He met the love of his life, Donna King, whom he married in 1978, and they enjoyed nearly 40 years together, raising their family and enjoying every minute spent with their grandchildren.

A dedicated community member, Lee was known by many in the town. He was a volunteer firefighter for many years, an active member in local civic clubs, the American Legion Post 158 and the Slovak Club, and could often be seen on the sidelines at the ball fields in town, coaching and cheering his daughters on in their sports endeavors.

He enjoyed working for the Lisbon School Department and also for the Town of Lisbon Public Works Department for more than 30 years, collectively, where he met many friends throughout the years. Many memories were made and shared with his family and friends while enjoying the things he loved.

Fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, four-wheeling and, more recently, the gentler sport of bird-watching were just a few of the activities that made him happy. His biggest joy was his grandchildren, from the arrival of his first granddaughter 17 years ago to the excitement of the impending arrival of his seventh grandchild. He enjoyed joking around with each of them and sharing stories and memories of his own childhood. He was so proud of each of them. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Donna; daughters Jennifer and husband, Donovan Chapman, of Richmond; Jessica and husband, Joshua Davis, of Sabattus and Casey Neureuther and husband, Brendan Stackhouse, of Lisbon Falls; grandchildren Haley, Katelyn, Noah, Kaden, Tucker and Cole; father, Charles, of Lisbon Falls; and siblings Beverly, Charles and Keith and their families.

Lee was predeceased by his mother, Evelyn.

Per his wishes, a public service will not be held. Please let Lee live on in your memories.
