Donald "Donny" Couillard

Date of Death: July 8, 2020

Date of Birth: September 9, 1955

Biography:

Donald "Donny" Couillard passed away on July 8, 2020 after a long battle with multiple cancers. Donny was born in Brunswick, Maine on September
9, 1955 to Antoine Couillard of Canada and Athala Theberge of Brunswick. Donny attended Brunswick schools and was on the basketball team for many years. He worked at BIW, Department 27 for 15 years.

In the summer of 1978 Donny married Claudia "Tiny" Blackman and had two children. Mindy Correll and Brock Couillard both of Wiscasset. He had
many "adopted" children that would call him dad and he loved them like his own. Donny had a passion for gardening and restoring old vehicles
and loved working on "real cars" like the 1969 Camaro RS/SS or the 1970 Chevelle SS. Donny traveled the United States and always wanted to go
back to Hawaii. His favorite place he lived was North Carolina and would say "I love the parties and people but I miss the ocean". He enjoyed
spending his Saturday nights at the Wiscasset Raceway and Sundays watching Nascar.

During the summer, he loved seafood and looked forward to his lobster bakes with his whole family. He was an amazing cook and made the best
chili, burgers, and prime rib around. He had a soft spot for animals but his favorite love was his White German Sheppard, Winter. As a child, his
favorite cartoon character was the Tasmanian devil because it reminded him of himself, a prankster, wild, funny, loving, and would eat anything
that contained meat. Anyone that knew Donny knew that he loved his Dr. McGillicuddy, Coors Light, and live music but not as much as his
children and grandchildren. Donny spent as much time as he could with his 5 grandchildren and would light up when they came around.  Before
his cancer diagnosis he would take his grandchildren to the garage to work on cars and always wanted one of his grandkids to follow in his
footsteps.

He is survived by his two children Mindy Correll and Brock Couillard, sisters Carol Wright and Diane Laney, his grandchildren Arianna
Couillard, Kayden Correll, Sabastian Couillard, Briella Couillard, and Jaxon Couillard and many nieces and nephews. At Donny's request, there
will be no funeral but a rocking party will happen at a later time.
