Steuben, ME — Angel R. Pelletier, 89, of Steuben, Maine, died quietly while recovering from a stroke and heart attack at his daughter’s home in Exeter, N.H. He was born in Saco, Maine, and was the son of Alphonse Pelletier and Elise Morest. He lived for many years in Salem and Danvers, Mass., Kingston, N.H., and Steuben, Maine. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Therese (Chouinard) and their eight children; 13 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; his brother-in-law, Guy Chouinard; and nine nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his sister, Lucille Lunt, and his two brothers, Lucien and Trefle.

He was a WWII veteran, and worked at the Watertown Arsenal for many years. He was a Boy Scout leader in New Hampshire, and worked for a time at Process Engineering and Milliken Mills. He was a hard worker and jack-of–all-trades. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle for many years. He loved the rural life, taking care of all his farm animals, and driving his tractor. He was an avid cribbage player. Angel will sorely be missed by all who knew him.
