Roland ‘Chabin’ Levesque

MADAWASKA, Maine — It is with heavy hearts that we bid our final farewell to our beloved father who passed away on March 24, 2018. A man of few words, he was always willing to help anyone out, often in his own special way.

He loved going on rides to visit family and friends. Now his journey will allow him to be reunited with his wife, Estelle; son, Michael; grandson, Joey; his parents, Joseph and Lezzyanne; brothers, Roger and Harold, and sisters, Doris, Rejeanne, Jeannine, Norma, and Mildred. He is survived by his children, Rino Levesque and his wife, Ahle, of Portland; Diana Levesque of Madawaska; AnnMarie and husband, Vinnie Laraia, of New Hampshire; James Levesque and his wife, Patty, of Connecticut; and Gary Levesque of South Carolina; grandchildren, Teagan and husband, James Booth, of Texas, Rino Levesque Jr. of Portland, Kathy and her husband, James Felicito, of Connecticut, and Kris Laraia and his wife, Jennifer, of North Carolina; step-grand-daughter, Celine Young of Connecticut; great-grandchildren, Claudia and Seamus Booth of Texas; and Tori and Zach Felicito of Connecticut.

Sincere thanks to all our family and friends for your love and support, caretakers, especially Lynn Francoeur, Paul and Nancy Michaud for all their extra help and care. There will be no visiting hours. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Madawaska on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at 10 a.m. Burial will be at the St. Thomas Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Lajoie Funeral Home in Madawaska. For online condolences, please visit
