- Pavlo Steve Datsis, 91, passed away Saturday, June 10, 2017. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
One of five children, Pavlo was born to Steve and Helena Datsis in Waterville, on Feb. 3, 1926. He attended local schools and graduated from Waterville High School in 1944.

Pavlo married Doris Cormier in 1949 and had three children. He later worked at the Waterville Post Office until retirement in 1987.
