WINSLOW - On May 1, 2014, Harold A. Gagnon was reunited with the Lord and his beloved wife of 62 years, Margie. Harold, a lifelong resident of Winslow, was born March 27, 1922, and educated in the Winslow school system. When the country entered World War II, Harold did his duty and enlisted and while on a combat mission in Italy with the Army's 88th Infantry division, he was severely wounded and was the recipient of the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart. After returning to the States, Harold was undeterred by his injuries and was determined to make his mark in the world. Harold married his beloved Margie in 1940, and he wanted to face life's challenges head-on, rather than going back to the paper mill, he decided to enter the banking world where he used his boundless energy to work his way up from teller to eventually running a branch of the local Depositors Bank and retired as vice-president of Key Bank. Harold was the seventh of eight children born to Alfred and Hattie Gagnon in Winslow, and is survived by his sister, Yvonne Pooler, of Waterville. Harold was an avid outdoorsman who had a particular fondness for ice fishing and prided himself on being one of the first to fish China Lake with his brother Norman in the winter. Harold was the oldest charter member of the MacCrillis-Rousseau Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8835 of Winslow, where he served his fellow veterans in many official capacities and was also a member of the Bourque-Lanigan American Legion Post 5 of Waterville and a communicant of St. John the Baptist Church in Winslow. He was also a former member of the Winslow Jaycees and the Waterville Kiwanis Club. Although Harold never had any children, he was a favorite Pepere to Darrell and Donna-Jo Mitchell's children and grandchildren as they delighted in his company and loved to be around him. Harold is predeceased by his wife, Margie; and six of his siblings; and he will be missed by all those who were fortunate enough to be in his life and to have enjoyed his "can do" spirit; his generosity and his love. You are gone sir, but never to be forgotten. Special thanks to all the staff members at Oak Grove Center and MaineGeneral HealthReach Hospice for their compassionate and professional care of Harold during his brief time under their care. A graveside service will be at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 7, 2014, at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery, Grove Street, Waterville. Arrangements were made with Gallant Funeral Home 10 Elm Street Waterville. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to the Maine Children's Home, 93 Silver St., Waterville, ME 04901.
