MILO - Clarence George Langevine, 89, husband of the late Corinne (Cyr) Langevine, died July 31, 2006, at the Maine Veterans' Home in Bangor. He was born Nov. 13, 1916, in Long Pond, the son of Joseph and Adeline (Jacques) Langevine. He attended schools in Brownville Junction. At the age of 18, he enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Preble, serving from 1935 to 1937. Clarence was very proud to be an American and a Veteran of World War II. He served his country in the United States Army from 1941 to 1945, in the European African Middle Eastern Theater Campaign. Clarence received training at the Fannie Farmer Cooking School in Boston and used his cooking skills throughout his lifetime, working at colleges, hospitals, lodges, the Canadian Pacific Railroad and Penquis Valley High School in Milo. When Clarence married a young widow, Corinne Gero, in 1970, he became the stepdad of three children and eventually the grandfather and great-grandfather of many children who loved him dearly. For three decades Clarence and Corinne graciously hosted holiday meals for as many as 30 family members. The memories of those days will live eternally in our hearts and minds. Clarence enjoyed serving his fellow man. He loved people and loved telling stories. He was a member of St. Francis Xavier and Paul the Apostle Catholic Church and the Father James Daly Knights of Columbus Council No. 6559, the Joseph P. Chaisson American Legion Post No. 41, where he had served as commander and chaplain, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Forty and Eight Voiture Locale 454. He organized the Memorial Day parades in Milo for several years and was a volunteer for many fundraising events. In 1990 he served as a member on the Milo Community Development Committee. Clarence was predeceased by his wife in 2003; and his brother, Edward, in 1999. He is survived by three stepchildren and their spouses, Carole and Peter Ellis of New York, Linda and David Decker of North Yarmouth, and Dennis and Debbie Gero of Milo; six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews. The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude and thanks to the entire staff at the Maine Veterans' Home and to Dr. Atkins, Callie and Lisa for the care and support shown to Clarence and the family.
