Kevin Richard Therriault

SIDNEY – Kevin Richard Therriault, 58, lost his battle to cancer on Friday, May 19, 2023, at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, with his loving wife and partner in life, Kerri, by his side.

Kevin was born on Feb. 9, 1965, in Rumford, to Richard “Dick” and Margaret “Ann” Therriault. He grew up in Norridgewock and graduated from Skowhegan High School in 1983. He attended Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor, where he acquired his associate degree in applied science with a major in electrical power technology and a Bachelor of Science Degree in business management from the University of Phoenix.

Kevin began his career at Central Maine Power Company in 1986 as a meter reader but moved quickly into electric operations and served in many positions over his 37-year career. For the last 10 years, he was in management and became Sr. Director of System Operations in 2021. Kevin was highly respected and loved by everyone who worked with or for him, and he spent the last three years of his career pouring into others through the Company’s mentor program.

In 2013, he met the love of his life and best friend, Kerri, and they married on March 26, 2018, on their beloved Sanibel Island in Florida. Anyone that knew them, knew the love, respect, and adoration they had for each other and where you saw one you always saw the other. Kevin adored his children and grandchildren and no matter what time day or night, if they needed him, he was there. Always at the ready with his tools in hand to fix or make whatever they needed. Kevin loved hunting, fishing, photography, golfing, snowmobiling and special projects and made sure that he shared those passions with his children, grandchildren, friends, and family. One of Kevin’s greatest loves was being the assistant coach of the Skowhegan Girls Softball team, and if you knew Kevin, you heard the story of the 2014 State Championship more than once.

Kevin was predeceased by his father, Richard, in 2015 and his mother Ann in 2021. Kevin is survived by his wife, Kerri Therriault of Sidney, his son Konnor and wife Alyssa Therriault of Cornville, daughter Kaitlyn Therriault of Athens, stepdaughter, Jessica and husband, Jon Turner of Augusta and stepson, Kenneth Foster of Seattle, Washington; his beloved grandchildren, Harper Elizabeth, 3, Jackson Elliott, 2½, and Sawyer Ryley, six weeks; his brother and sister-in-law, Keith and Dee Therriault, sister and brother-in-law Karin and Chris Carey, his nieces and nephews Michael and wife Rachel Therriault, Chase and Sierra Carey, and Kayleigh and Chloe Therriault; Father-in-law and mother-in-law, Rodney and Janice Nason of Waterville and sister-in-law, Vicki Nason of Merrimack, N.H.

There will be a celebration of life at the Skowhegan High School Softball field on Saturday, July 8, 2023, at 11 a.m.

The family would like to thank the medical team at the Maine Health Cancer Center and Maine Medical Center in Portland who cared for Kevin from his diagnosis in February of 2023 until his passing in May. Their love, care and compassion for Kevin was above and beyond anything the family could have imagined, and they are so thankful for their love and support.
