Anthony L. St. Pierre, 69, of Lyman, died suddenly on May 2, 2018, at Maine Medical Center in CICU. Being a man with a generous heart, Tony was an organ donor; knowing his death could bring an end to suffering for others; his family can be proud of his final good works here on earth.
Anthony was born in Saco on March 21, 1949, the son of Joseph O. and Anna M. (Synoch) St. Pierre. Tony was raised in Rhode Island until the passing of his parents, and at 16 years of age, moved to Biddeford to live with his uncle and aunt, John J. and Alice L. (Synoch) Szumita, where he graduated from Biddeford High School. On November 18, 1967, Tony married his soulmate, Barbara F. Ladd.
Tony worked as a machinist with several companies over the years: Maremont in Saco, K & E (Keuffel and Esser) in Kennebunk, and APPI (Atlantic Precision Products Incorporated) in Biddeford. He was most proud to be involved in the making of the laser transits for NASA’s space shuttle payload bay doors.
Tony was a gifted singer and guitar player. He loved to play his Gibson electric guitar and sing songs by the Beatles, Elvis, and the family favorite, The Animals – House of the Rising Sun.
Tony loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed camping with his family and friends, motorcycling along the White Mts., and working on Bob Linnie’s pit crew at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway with his brother in-law Roy Slowik, and Mario Binnett.
He was very active within his church; serving as Ward Clerk and Elder in the Sanford Latter Day Saints Church. Tony loved history and researching the family tree; through many hours of genealogy and he and Barbara went to the Mormon Temple in Massachusetts as often as they could.
Tony was the primary caregiver for his beloved wife Barbara. Though he could be known to be stubborn; his sense of humor always shined through. He did the best Donald Duck impressions! He will be sorely missed by his family and many friends.
He is lovingly survived by his wife, Barbara St. Pierre of Lyman; his daughter, Carla Dube and her daughter, Katherine (Katie) Dube of Old Orchard Beach; his son, Dale St. Pierre and wife Vanessa and their daughter, Erin St. Pierre of South Carolina.
Tony was predeceased by his half-brother, George St. Pierre and half-sister, Anna St. Pierre.
