Ronald L. Boone Sr.
1931 - 2017
BREWER - Ronald L. Boone Sr., 85, husband of Virginia (Foley) Boone, passed away July 5, 2017, with his family by his side. He was born Dec. 24, 1931, in Eastport, the son of Hermon A. and Leita K. (Matthews) Boone.
Ronald served with the U.S. Navy for a brief period and he owned and operated Ronnie's Upholstery in Waterville and Eastport. He also worked 25 years as a sewing machine mechanic for C F Hathaway in Calais and later in Waterville. Ronald earned his high school diploma at the age of 65 from Waterville High School.
During his retirement, Ron and his wife Virginia traveled many miles to attend their grandchildren's sporting events. You could find them at hockey and basketball games, as well as swim meets. Ron was his grandchildren's biggest fan.
One of Ron's favorite places was Harris Point Cabins, #3 in particular. Every 4th of July, you could find him sitting at the water's edge looking out on Passamaquoddy Bay.
He will be deeply missed by his family in the years to come. Our gatherings will never be the same without our Dad, Grampie, and Great-Grampie. With every sunset we see from Harris Point over the 4th, we will remember him with love and sadness.
Surviving, in addition to his loving wife of 67 years, are his three children, Ronald L. Boone Jr and his wife Peggy, of Brewer; Gena M. Hebert, of Plano, Texas; and Julie L. Meehan and her husband Thomas, of Brewer; seven grandchildren, Aaron Boone and his wife Lee, of Yarmouth; Elizabeth Breen and her husband Matthew, of Thomaston; Arwen Hebert, of Plano, Texas; Nicholas Hebert and his wife Kristen, of Frisco, Texas; Nathaniel Hebert, of Fredericksburg, Va.; Andrew Meehan and his wife Hali, of Eddington; and Sarah Meehan, of Kittery; and eight great-grandchildren. He was predeceased his parents and by a brother, Harry Boone.
Family and friends may visit from noon-2 p.m. Monday, July 10, 2017, at Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, 69 State St., Brewer, where a service honoring Ronald's life will be held at 2 p.m. as the visitation concludes. Messages and memories may be shared with his family at: kileyandfoley.com.
