SABATTUS — John Adian Zegouros, 61, of Sabattus, formerly of Whiting, peacefully returned home to the Lord on Friday, Aug. 10, with his family by his side. He was born Sept. 30, 1956, in New Brunswick, N.J., and was the beloved son of Catherine A. Zegouros, whom he loved dearly and remembered well. His father was the late Odysseus John Zegouros of California.

John’s early childhood years were joyful ones with his brother and sister Vinal and Candy.

There were many things that John loved in his lifetime. John enjoyed his 1969 Firebird convertible, animals, the stars and the various pets he had throughout his life.

He attended Washington Academy and during his high school years and played basketball. He enjoyed good movies, was a sports enthusiast and subsequently loved and followed basketball all his life, rooted for the Red Sox and fervently cheered the Pats. John worked for many years as the head of the maintenance department at University of Maine in Machias, but his fondest memories were those of drilling oil in West Texas in the 1980s with his brother, Vinal, and the many great adventures he had during those times.

John was predeceased by his wife, Linda Haggart.

He is survived by his son, Nicholas Zegouros, of Lisbon, wife, Brittany; and grandchildren McKenzie and Adian; son, Jacob Porter, and wife, Danielle, and children William, Elise and Miles, of Gorham. He is also survived by his stepchildren Alex and Jamie Lynn, and grandchild, Christopher, of Rhode Island; a loving sister, Leah Candace Zegouros, of Lisbon, and her children Ryan Langlois of Poland and Sandy Morris of Colorado; and his brother and sister-in-law Vinal and Claire Zegouros of Gray, along with their children Miranda Conrad of Massachusetts and Benjamin Zegouros of Gray; and many cousins and countless friends. He would like us to remember and mention them all, but his circle of family and friends was as big as his heart and it would be impossible.

What is sure is that John was a friend to all and all who knew him loved him well. There will be a private burial at the family cemetery in Whiting.
