Raymond “Ray” Guerin

NORWAY – Raymond “Ray” Guerin passed away on Oct. 13, 2021 at Stephens Memorial Hospital after battling dementia for a number of years.

He was born in Lewiston on August 26, 1946. He graduated from Sabattus High School, class of 1964. He entered the Navy and completed three Mediterranean Cruises on the USS Saratoga followed by 12 years of service in the National Guard in Lewiston.
