Armour, Everett - Pawtucket  
ARMOUR, EVERETT M. 75, a lifelong resident of Pawtucket, passed away on March 2nd, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's. Born in Pawtucket, he was the son of the late James and Leona Armour, and was the brother of Joan (Armour) Lang of Scituate. A 1957 graduate of Tolman High School, he enlisted in the United States Navy where his four years of service included a tour on "Old Ironsides". Following his honorable discharge, he married his beloved wife of 54 years, Judith (Bryson). In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughters, State Senator Cynthia Armour Coyne, her husband Jerry and children Katherine, Patrick, Ian and Meghan of Barrington; and Sheila J. Lee, her husband Edward and son James of Middleboro, Massachusetts. He was predeceased by his son, Eric. In 1962 he began a 21 year career with the Rhode Island State Police that culminated in his retirement as a Lieutenant in 1983. Most of his career was spent as a member of the Bureau of Criminal Identification, where he specialized in the use of the polygraph machine. Throughout his law enforcement career, he continued to pursue his education, graduating from Bryant University, Clark University, and Providence College. Following his retirement from the State Police, he was the Director of Security and Fraud for Citizens Bank. Known as "Gus", he was actively involved in various local community activities and organizations. He was a founding member of the annual Save the Bay swim and the Rhode Island Aquatic Hall of Fame where he was a board member for over two decades. For years he officiated and photographed swim meets while cheering for his children and grandchildren from the pool deck. In 2011, Gus was inducted into the Rhode Island Aquatic Hall of Fame. Gus played a significant role in helping to establish the Rhode Island State Police Museum and its Foundation, and was gratified to see its establishment in 2006. He was particularly proud of his Scottish heritage and shared a love for the bagpipes and drums. Gus competed internationally as a Drum Major and was a proud member of the Mystic Highlanders, Rhode Island Highlanders, and Roger Williams University pipe bands. Gus will best be remembered by his loyal commitment to his family and the many organizations he so fondly contributed his time and energy to over the years. We are fortunate that many of our memories have been preserved through the lens of his camera. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held for him on Thursday, March 5th, commencing at 10:00a.m, at Blessed Pope John Paul II Church (formerly St. Leo the Great), 697 Central Avenue, Pawtucket followed by his burial with full military honors at Mount St. Mary's Cemetery, 661 Prospect Street, Pawtucket to which family and friends are invited.

Betancur, Maximiliano - Cranston  
BETANCUR, MAXIMILIANO "MAX" age 90, a life-long resident of Cranston, Rhode Island was called to his heavenly father on March 1, 2015 at Rhode Island Hospital after a brief hospital stay. He passed away peacefully surrounded by members of his entire family. Max, as he was lovingly known, was born on October 10, 1924 in Angostura, Antioquia (Col.) to Balbino Betancur and Rose Amelia Giraldo De Betancur of Angostura, Antioquia, Colombia. Max had worked as a foreman in the textile industry for many years, both in the North Carolina and Rhode Island where he permanently remained for the rest of his life until retiring in the mid 90's. He is survived by his former wife Maria F. Betancur; his children and spouses Samuel "Sam" Betancur wife Marta of Cumberland, R.I. Gladys Betancur of Cranston, R.I., Doris Betancur of West Palm Beach, Florida, Maria E. Betancur of Cumberland, R.I., Rogelio "Julio" Betancur of Cumberland, R.I. Diana Betancur of West Palm Beach, Florida, and Daryl Betancur, spouse Dennis Weems of Calabasas, California; six grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Additionally, he is also survived by many near and distant relatives in Connecticut and many parts of Colombia. Max was preceded in death by his siblings: Medardo Betancur, Gabriela Betancur De Perez, Justo Betancur, Rosalba Betancur De Lopez, Margarita Betancur, and daughter Olivia Arroyave Betancur. Max was a loving and caring father who loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren with whom he enjoyed spending time with. He was a dedicated and working man who at an early age, had the good judgment, vision and courage to immigrate to the United States in search of a new life for his family. He was a man of faith and loved the Lord with all his heart, often times taking time to offer help to newly arrived Colombian immigrants who needed help in simple things such as rendering assistance to people who needed to find employment or giving them a ride to work. He made friends easily and had a witty sense of humor, always carrying himself with pride, confidence and charisma as he went about his business. These qualities proved to be helpful as he was forging a new life for him and his family upon arriving in the Unites States. Throughout the course of his life, Max made many long-lasting friends both here and abroad with whom he remained connected. He was also a gifted musician, who played the guitar in his spare time and loved playing cards and dominos. What most people do not know about Max is that before immigrating to the U.S., he served in the Colombian Armed Forces and was honorably discharged. Max will be sadly missed by his family and all those who knew him. He made an impact in the lives of many while in the journey of his earthly life. "We will see his reflection and hear his voice echo in the things he left behind in the memories that will touch us when we least expect them in the stories he shared the family traits he passed down in the love that will keep him close to our heart forever." (Unknown) Father, we bid you farewell. Gogo gently Funeral services are under the care of Butterfield Home and Chapel, 500 Pontiac Avenue, Cranston, Rhode Island and will be held as follows: Wake scheduled for Saturday, March 7 from 4:00-6:00pm with a celebration of life service on Sunday, March 8 2:00 p.m. For further details, please contact Butterfield Home and Chapel at 401-461-0151.
