BIDDEFORD — Raymond B. Dube, 84, of Kennebunk passed away peacefully Thursday, July 19, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Lewiston on Feb. 1, 1934, the son of Arthur and Louisa (Laliberte) Dube.

A local hockey standout, Ray graduated from St. Dominic High School and received a scholarship to attend Kents Hill Preparatory School in Kents Hill, Maine, in 1953, where he excelled in hockey, baseball and football. Ray had a strong work ethic and instilled the same in his children early in life. He achieved many successes in business and believed in giving back to his community. Ray loved spending time outdoors, where he did most of his best parenting. He shared life lessons with each of his children, stepchildren and grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.

Ray is survived by his wife of 27 years, Elaine (Wilson) Dube, of Kennebunk; his five children: Gregory, Andrew, Raye, Marc and Patricia; and two stepchildren: Melissa and Jennifer; 18 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren; his brother, Valdor Dube; and his sister, Dorothy Douglas.
