- May 13, 2003

BROW - Eugene V. "Sonny" Caron, 62, husband of Billie (Connaughton) Caron, died May 13, 2003, at home after a short illness, surrounded by his loving family. Sonny was born Sept. 16, 1940, in Brownville Junction, the son of George L. and Vivian (Vague) Caron. Sonny graduated from Brownville Junction High School in 1958 and served in the U.S. Army for three years. He recently retired as a rural mail carrier after 35 years of service.
He was a member of the Bernard Jones American Legion Post No. 92, the Pleasant River Masonic Lodge No. 163 AF and AM, where he had served as Past Master, the Brownville Junction High School Alumni Assoc., Ebeemee Snowmobile Club, and the Maine Rural Mail Carrier's Assoc. Sonny was known for his love of people and his sense of humor. He enjoyed his Tuesday nights at the Bingo Hall with his many "Bingo friends." He looked forward to "Hunting Camp," where he was famous for his biscuits. He liked to take snowmobile trips with friends in the winter and he seldom missed coffee with the guys before going to work. Sonny was always willing to lend a helping hand, when needed.
Sonny is survived by his wife of 40 years; a son, Tim of Gorham; a daughter, Lisa and her husband, John Melanson, of Hamden; his two precious grandchildren, Kristi and Brad Melanson of Hampden, who were the "apples of his eye." He is also survived by a sister, Irene and her husband, Dennis, of Williamsburg; three brothers, George of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Charles and his wife, Shirley, of Brewer and Terry of Bangor; many nieces and nephews; as well as his faithful companion, "Sherlock." Sonny's family would like to thank the following people who were so thoughtful and considerate during his final days, Eli Zwicker Sr., Walter and Deanna Farrar, Vaughn, Bert, Ralph and Leon Farrar, Ken MacKinnon, Linda and Whit Coburn, Charles and Selma Larson, Dody Coburn, Larry Morrill, Nancy Cook, Roland Stubbs, Milton Smith, the members of Community Health and Counseling Services, and Dr. Henry Atkins and his staff. The family was overwhelmed by the acts of kindness shown by so many. Funeral services were conducted May 17, with Rev. Michelle St. Cyr officiating. Masonic services followed. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Ronald MacDonald House, 654 State St., Bangor, ME 04401.
