Gary R. Chamberland

LEWISTON – Gary R. Chamberland, born May 8, 1964, in Lewiston, passed away on Aug. 2, 2022, at 58 years old. Gary was the second son of Albert and Fleurette Chamberland (also of Lewiston). He graduated from Lewiston High School in 1982, and went on to work in the construction trades until obtaining a degree in Information Technology. He then worked in IT at Walco Metroflex and Central Maine Medical Center, eventually becoming a Senior Architect at HyBridge Technologies.

He married his former wife Kim in 1990 with whom he had two sons, Adam and Ryan. He was thrilled by how much his sons had already accomplished in life, and grateful to Kim for being such an outstanding mother. Later in life he met Laurie Danforth, and made a life with her filled with love and laughter on the Tacoma Lakes in Monmouth, until his passing.

Gary was always eager to make others laugh. He was generous with his time and effort, ready to lend a hand to anyone in need. He enjoyed life on the lake; fishing from his dock, leisurely rides on the pontoon, or whipping tubers and wakeboarders around. His sons love him and are very grateful to have him as their father. Laurie’s three grandchildren KK, Mason and Tyler had a blast playing with and learning from “Pepere” nearly every weekend.

Gary is survived by his two sons Adam and Ryan Chamberland, partner Laurie Danforth, her two children Tyler and Marilyse Danforth, her grandchildren Kaylina Danforth, Tyler Danforth, and Mason Daniels, former wife and close friend Kim Emery, niece Meranda (Alex) Deraps, grand-niece Allaina, grand-nephew Isaac, and nephew Daniel Chamberland, Jr. He was predeceased by his parents and his brother Daniel Sr.

Visitation will be held at Pinette-Dillingham Funeral Home in Lewiston, ME beginning at 12 p.m., on Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022, followed by a funeral service at 3 p.m., and finally a reception at Gary and Laurie’s home afterward.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to your favorite charity.
