Anthony "Tony" Arsenault

Date of Death: February 22, 2020

Date of Birth: September 6, 1949


Anthony “Tony” George Arsenault passed away on February 22nd after a short illness. He was born in Lewiston, the oldest son of Joseph and Loretta (Meservier) Arsenault and attended local schools. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in Vietnam. His tenure was cut short when he was called home upon the death of his father and was discharged in order to help with raising his 5 younger siblings.

Tony was raised in a family of musicians and was well known by local followers as the rhythm guitarist and vocalist with “Rare Breed.” He continued to play until the early 90’s, and still performed occasionally at family functions and gatherings.

Tony was known by many as ‘Pepere’ in his recent years, though most of them were not related. He welcomed everyone he met as family and served as a role model for many.

He is survived by his children: Shawn Arsenault, and wife Rebecca, of Monmouth; Justin Arsenault, and wife Marie, of China; Amie Bixby of New Gloucester ; Angela Wright, and husband Keith, of Lisbon; Brian Cook, and wife Corinne, of Auburn; Christian Arsenault, and wife Casey, of Lewiston; as well as 14 grandchildren, 7 greatgrandchildren, and several brothers and sisters. Tony was predeceased by his wife Connie Arsenault; his parents, brother Donald; and son in law James Bixby.
