Bernard J. Doyon

OAKLAND – It is with profound sadness, we announce the passing of Bernard Doyon on June 15, 2022, at the age of 74 due to complications from Type One Diabetes.

Bernie was born in Waterville, April 18, 1948, the ninth of 10 children, to Lionel and Izella (Roy) Doyon.

He graduated from Waterville Senior High School in 1968. He married Collette Guite in 1990 and they enjoyed 32 wonderful years together. He was a hard worker in the paper industry for many years until his retirement.

He and Collette had numerous business adventures together, rental properties, real estate, storage units and a small restaurant in Oakland called “The Dawg House”. Bernie‚Äôs final years were spent living between Maine and Florida where he enjoyed rest and relaxation in the sunshine and any pool he could find. A true life of leisure.

Surviving him are his wife, his son Joseph Doyon, his sister Yvette Bard, brother Armand Doyon, two stepsons Winter Guite, Honore Guite and wife Christie and their children Owen, Gus and Ava of Rome plus many extended family members and friends.
