What a great thrill and blessing that our family got to spend time with Uncle Dick and his family 2 years ago in Maine! He and his brother "Gramps" were so much alike. Prayers and thoughts with your families...

Our Deepest Sympathy In Tjis Time Of Loss!

My Mother and I were blessed to have the chance to visit with our family in Maine 2 years ago and to spend time with Uncle Dick. I could not help thinking during my visit how much alike he was to, my Grandfather, his brother. I know that all of his family and friends will miss him dearly, as will I. Thanks for the talks we had and laughs we shared. I know that heaven has its hands full now with the Averill Brothers together forever.

I am very sorry to hear of your dad's passing. You and yours are in my thoughts.

Although our families were hundreds of miles apart, we talked when we could and reminisced often. Our last trip to Maine is one that my family and I will never forget. It was a chance for my 2 sons to meet someone they had only heard stories about. We talked for hours but it seemed like seconds and he sent us back to North Carolina with 4 of the biggest lobsters I've ever seen. I could listen to his stories forever especially the ones of he and his brother and their escapades. His words...

My condolences to Dick's family. Dick was my friend and next door neighbor for over 30 years. He shared quite a few interesting stories with me during that time. Over the years, he always had a project underway took a great deal of pride in his property. Dick was a unique individual and will be greatly missed.

I visited Dick at his home early last year. His mind was a sharp as ever. He sure had a lot of experiences to share. A good guy, who I will miss seeing at Hannafords here in Brewer. I would approach him, as he was riding in the wheel cart. Asking for his license. His laughter was so contagious, and loud throughout the store. RIP Dick
