Alphie R Ouellette was born on July 30, 1928, to Joseph and Delia of Fort Kent, ME.
He served his country in the Korean war and was honorably discharged as a disabled veteran in 1953.
Alphie retired from R.H. Long Motor Sales after working for 40 years, most of which he was manager of the auto body shop.
Alphie enjoyed various hobbies, including owning and operating his own plane after attaining his private pilot license, operating heavy equipment, and meticulously maintaining his property. Alphie most loved spending time with family.
Barbara F. (Turnbull) Ouellette was born on January 1, 1929, to Harold and Mabel Turnbull of Cochituate, MA.
She was a graduate of Wayland High School Class of 1946. Barbara was dedicated to caring for her home and family. After raising her three children, she lovingly cared for her grandchildren as if they were her own. Barbara was an avid reader. When not busy tending to the needs of the family, she could be found sitting quietly in her chair reading the latest novel. As time went by, it was getting more difficult to find a title on the shelf that she had not already read. She loved a good story.
