Obituary

AUGUSTA , Maine
Paul E. Paré - age 91, died Monday, January 25, 2021 at his home, with his daughter and caregiver Anne Marie by his side, following a period of declining health. He was born on May 20, 1929 in Vassalboro, Maine, a son of the late Ernest and Georgianna (Blouin) Paré.
Paul attended school in Vassalboro. Until he married, he worked the family’s dairy farm on Cross Hill Road in Vassalboro and with his mother, sold and delivered butter and eggs from the farm to Augusta customers, including the family of his future wife, Lorraine C. Labbé. On June 24, 1952, Paul and Lorraine were married and spent over 67 years of a wonderful marriage together before Lorraine died on January 17, 2020.
Prior to his retirement in 1992, Paul was the Maintenance Superintendent at Statler Tissue Company (formerly Hudson Pulp & Paper), where he worked for 40 years. He was a Life Member of Le Club Calumet and served as the Club’s House Chairman for many years. He was a parishioner of St. Michael Parish at St. Augustine Catholic Church. Paul was an avid gardener who grew a wide variety of vegetables and flowers. He was especially proud of his annual crop of tomatoes. His carpentry and woodworking skills included remodeling the home he shared with Lorraine and their four children and building finely crafted furniture.
Paul was predeceased by a son, Norman Paré; his brothers, Alphonse and Robert Paré; and his sisters, Marie Blanche Burchell, Marie Rose Fortin, Madeline Sanborn, Josephine Lavallee, Roselia Violette, Merilda Poulin, and Beatrice Pomerleau.
He is survived by his daughter Anne Marie Paré of Augusta; his son Paul E. Paré, Jr. and daughter-in-law Bev of Dixmont; his daughter Rita J. Paré-Peters of Waterville; grandchildren Shane Paré of Houston, Texas, Jak Peters of Waterville, Chrissy Paré of Miami, Florida, and Nick Paré and his wife Alison and their daughters Addy and Izzy of Topsham; sister Rita Glidden; sister-in-law Jeannine Paré; and brother-in-law Bert Ayotte; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Szela for his care, kindness and support over the years and especially during Dad’s illness.

Sincere condolences to the Pare family. Having grown up right next door, I certainly have many fond memories of “Mr. Pare”. He was frequently outdoors working in his garden, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, etc. He was a hard working, easy going gentleman who had a ready smile and kind words, may he Rest In Peace.
With Sympathy, Gloria Levesque Farrington

To the Pare Family
My deepest sympathies to you and yours. I remember going to your house to buy produce. Your father was the sweetest man, and had the nicest garden I have ever seen in my life. May your memories get you through this tough time.

Sincerely

In 1978 fresh out of college I was fortunate to be select for a position at Statler Tissue Co. managing the Store Room inside of the mill. The job consisted of having spare parts in stock to assist maintenance in repairing functions within the mill. On my first day a gentleman stopped in and introduced himself and offered to help me in anyway he could. Your father looked after me on a daily basis coaching me until I was able to do the job. He was such a kind man. I have not seen or spoken with Paul in over 40 years however have often thought about those early days at Statler Tissue and how much Paul Pare' meant to me and the mill. I was sad to see his Obituary in todays paper but please to read about the fulfilling life he was able to have.

I was sorry to learn of Mr Pare's death. I had heard many good things about him from my father, who worked with him a number of years at Statler Tissue, and thought highly of him as a person and a co-worker. I had some contact with Mr Pare myself while working at Statler in the summers during my college years. He always had a ready smile and was very congenial. In later years, I would see him at church at St Augustine, and we would exchange greetings, in French, after Mass. During summer months, he would invariably mention how well his tomato plants were doing. He was clearly a good and decent man, and I want to extend my condolences to his family. Fernand LaRochelle
