Richard A. Fournier

Date of Death: July 23, 2012

Date of Birth: September 5, 1954


SUMNER – Richard A. Fournier, 57, of Sumner, formerly of Greenwood and also Salisbury, Massachusetts, died Monday, July 23, 2012 at his home, after a brief battle with cancer.

Dick was born in Newburyport, MA, September 5, 1954, the eldest son of Francis J. and Madelyn B. (Rogers) Fournier.  He was raised in Byfield and graduated from Triton Regional High School.

Dick was well-known in the Byfield area as a true craftsman in the building trade.  He left his imprint behind in the many quality homes and businesses he built over a thirty-five year period. 

He and his family moved to Greenwood, Maine in 2006.  Dick became a familiar face on the Greenwood Highway Department until late in 2011 when he returned to the trade he loved.  He also served as the Greenwood Constable.

Dick was an avid reader and a collector of books and ‘old memorabilia’. He loved birds and wildlife; he found peace hunting and walking in the woods.

Dick leaves his former wife Janet, two children Jennifer and Joseph, and two grandchildren Richard and Ashlynn.  His family, all of Newbury, MA are parents Francis and Madelyn Fournier, brother Robert Fournier and wife Donna, sister Gail White and husband Jim Carey, and nephews Robert, Zachary and Tommy.  From the Salisbury, MA area, he leaves his in-laws Henry and Eiko Thurlow, their son Roger, and several nephews.

The family would like to thank Androscoggin Hospice and Personal Touch Home Care.  Dick’s wish to die at home was made possible due to their support.

Arrangements:  a celebration of Dick’s life will be held at the West Paris Library on Saturday, August 4th from 3:00 – 6:00 pm.  Friends and family are invited to gather and share remembrances.
