YORK, Maine - Armand A. Davy, 67, died Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013.
The Guest Book is expired.
Armand was born Aug. 3, 1946, in Haverhill, Mass., to his parents Albert and Margaret (Sherman) Davy.
He was schooled in Worcester, Mass., and then attended the Culinary Institute of America.
He served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1970. He and his wife raised their family in Easthampton, Mass., for 34 years while he worked at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, Mass., as food service director before retiring to York in 2005, where he and his wife enjoyed their retirement.
Armand was very active in the church, helped regularly at the Food Pantry and Table of Plenty, and participated in countless other volunteer opportunities. Most importantly however, he spent as much time as possible with his family as well as playing golf, which was his passion, practicing and playing primarily at the Cape Neddick Country Club. Armand was a man who felt great compassion and kindness towards others. It was this that lead to his invitation to serve on the Board of Directors for Riverside Industries where he helped develop a valuable work program for adults with special needs, hiring many of their residents in his own kitchen at the Williston Northampton School.
He is survived by his best friend and wife, Patricia R. (Lessard) Davy, who he joined with in marriage in October of 1969 and Armand's two children, Paul Armand Davy and his wife Amy and Renee Davy Swartz and her husband Erik. Armand has four grandchildren, Finneas and Teegan Davy and Evry and Caleb Swartz. He is also survived by his sister Helen Young, many nieces, nephews, cousins and so many dear friends.
