Donald LaCroix
1935 - 2017
FAIRFIELD - On Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, Donald passed away at Maine General Hospital in Augusta following an illness. Donald was born on July 1, 1935, in Waterville to the parents of Cyril and Yvonne LaCroix.
Donald attended St. Francis De Sales Catholic school and shortly after graduation he joined the U.S. Air Force. He was very proud of the time he spent in the Air Force. He married Edna Thompson on August 22, 1959, and they shared many happy moments; she was certainly the love of his life. They lived in Fairfield where Don was a member of the Fairfield American Legion. Don loved his work as a mechanic and worked at Woodbury Motors, Firestone Garage, and at Al's Sunoco. He did have to take an early retirement due to health issues.
Don was predeceased by his parents; a brother Larry from Waterville, a twin brother Ronald from Texas, a sister Rene Whittish from Waterville, and his beloved wife Edna.
Don is survived by his daughter Evelyn Knights of Fairfield and his son Kevin and his wife Janet, and their three daughters Tamika, Kaitlin, and Chantelle LaCroix from Solon. Don was very proud of his three granddaughters and loved spending time with them.
He enjoyed putting puzzles together, family outings and family bar-be-ques, just to name a few things. He will be greatly missed by his family. Don also leaves behind several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A Funeral service will be held at Gallant Funeral Home on Saturday, NoV. 18, at 1 pm, with burial at Pine Grove Cemetery, Grove Street, Waterville. After the service there will be a gathering of family and friends at the American Legion in Fairfield. Services are under the direction and care of Gallant Funeral Home, 10 Elm St., Waterville.
