He had been employed by Central Maine Power Company for 25 years, retiring in 1991. He previously had been employed by Bates Manufacturing, Edwards Division, Calderwood Bakery and Pomerleau's Bakery. Richard and Joan Comeau were married by the Rev. Joseph O. Casavant at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Augusta on September 21, 1957. He was a man of strong faith. He was very kind and compassionate to people's needs. He was always available to help those less fortunate than he. He was a firm believer in God, family and country. He loved his home and truly enjoyed working in and out of his home. His vegetable garden was a work of art. He not only enjoyed taking care of his garden but also enjoyed sharing the fruit of his crop with his family, friends and neighbors. He always felt rich due to the fact that he had a home and a nice piece of property and thanked God daily for all that He had given him. He always felt that he had to take good care of his property, as that was what God wanted of him. He felt that every one on earth was created by God, for one reason or another, whether a human being or an animal. To Joan, he was the "love of her life" and supported her throughout all of their married lives with all and/or any activity she was involved in. He will be greatly missed. Richard was highly involved on the Steering Committee for the Restoration Fund of St. Augustine Church. He worked effortlessly on this project for a period of five years. Richard had a collection of the Dickens Christmas Village, over 40 houses and all the characters you could imagine. He always looked forward to putting that up late in October or early November and this was thoroughly enjoyed throughout the holidays by family, friends and any one that wanted to see it. He loved to work with wood, whether it was cutting wood to feed the wood stove or working at making a Créche. Richard was a communicant of St. Augustine Catholic Church and was a member of the Abnaki Council 3rd Degree Knights of Columbus, Abnaki Assembly 4th Degree Knights of Columbus and its Color Corps, Cursillo Movement, Cushnoc Senior Citizens and was a Life Member of Le Club Calumet.
