HALLOWELL – Robert Paul Heath, 90, passed away Sept. 15, 2023 at the Androscoggin Hospice House in Auburn. He was born Oct. 31, 1932, a son of Ruth (Ingalls) and Ivory Heath Sr.

“Paul”, as he was known, graduated from Sherman High School in the class of 1950 and felt called to become a minister. He went on to attend New Brunswick Bible Institute and he became an ordained minister upon graduation.

Paul married his high school sweetheart Donna M. Peters of Mattawamkeag on Aug. 29, 1955. Paul and Donna pastored churches from Maine to New York, most recently the East Auburn Baptist Church, Pittston Congregational, and Freedom Fellowship.

Pastor Heath touched many lives throughout his ministry and continued sharing his love for Jesus and his family, all the way to his passing. In reflecting upon her beloved husband, Donna recently wrote, “He fought a good fight, he finished the course, he kept the faith, and I know that I will see him again in Heaven.”

Paul was predeceased by his parents; his infant daughter, Lori Heath; and six brothers, Jesse, Ivory Jr., Ralph, Leonard, Bill, and Bert Heath, and his sister, Avis Darling.

He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Donna Heath; his daughter, Lois Dorr and her husband Terry, his three sons, Brian Heath and his wife Jennifer, Bruce Heath, and Jonathan Heath and his wife, Jessica Wincapaw; his seven grandchildren, Shawn, Erin, Steven, Rachel, Zoe, Josie, and Samantha; his six great-grandchildren; and his sister, Mert Jones.
