CLINTON - John Stephen Achramowicz Jr., 82, died Aug. 8, 2019, at his home in Clinton after a rapid decline.

Born in Ipswich, Mass. on July 20, 1937, to John Stephen Achramowicz Sr. and Barbara Ann (Claxton) Achramowicz. He graduated from Ipswich High School and attended the Colorado School of Mines.

On Oct. 13, 1956, John married the love of his life, the former Joyce Lorraine Tardiff. Early in his working years he worked at AVCO on the heat shield for the space program. The woods and the waters of Maine called him, and the family relocated to Clinton in the mid-60s just up the road from his in-laws. John was an entrepreneur for the remainder of his career. He spent his leisure time fishing and hunting the Allagash, the waters off the coast of Georgetown and Newfoundland Canada.

He was predeceased by his parents; sister, Helen Burns; son-in-law, Jonathan Lord; brothers-in-law, Emery Tardiff, James Karns and Charles Crosby Jr.

John is survived by his devoted wife, Joyce; his son, John III, daughter, Donna Lord; his one and only grandson, Corey John Achramowicz; sisters, Judy Welch and Susan Messenger (and Bruce) of Arizona; sisters-in-law, Joanne Crosby of Topsham, Carol Karns and Debbie Fulford of Virginia, brother-in-law, Dr. Richard Burns of New Hampshire; and many nieces and nephews scattered around the country, but dear to his heart.

At John's request there will be no service.
