Brunswick -  Maine National Guard Brigadier General and Brunswick Assistant Postmaster Romain B. Savoie died October 30, 2017 after a long enjoyable retirement filled with part-time work, reading and gardening.

     Raised in Topsham Heights, he married the former Madeleine Bouchard and raised three daughters.  After Madeleine's death he moved to the Highlands.  He is survived by two daughters, three grandchildren and numerous relatives.

     Always eager to be the first to read new books, he befriended many librarians, giving his children a love of reading. He was an avid and knowledgeable conversationalist who loved  lively debate.

     He enjoyed the french club, senior college classes, and social activities, especially those involving donuts or cookies.  His outgoing friendly nature will be missed.

Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, Nov 2, 2017 from 3:00 – 5:00pm at Demers-Desmond Funeral Home, 34 Cushing Street, Brunswick, Maine.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, Nov 3, 2017 at 10:00am at St. John the Baptist Church, Brunswick.
