ALBION – On April 15, 2021, John Robert Boivin of Albion, a loving father of four, joined his father Paul, brother Tim, and sister Mary in heaven at the age of 58.John was born Sept, 18, 1962 in Manchester, N.H. to Paul and Edna (Gurney) Boivin. He was the one of seven siblings. Although some of his childhood years were spent in New Hampshire, at a young age the family moved to Clinton, Maine.John attended Lawrence high school in Fairfield and through hard work and dedication was able to acquire the credits needed to graduate as a junior at the age of 17, and joined the United States Air Force soon thereafter. In his four years serving John took great pride serving over seas, loading and working on aircrafts, and even getting a chance to work on Air Force One.After leaving the military and in his early twenties John married Jaqueline M. Giroux of Vassalboro. Together in their 15 years of marriage they raised two sons Jake and Jaron, and one daughter Jestil. Other than his family John took great pride in his plumbing and heating company in which he started from scratch in 1986 and continued for 45 years. John’s passion for being a father really showed when he and second wife Michelle Cote adopted a newborn baby, Mathew Hunter Boivin.During his prime John was an avid waterskier and loved spending time on his boat, however, later in life John was at his happiest and had a passion for just being in the woods, whether he was sitting in a treestand during hunting season, cutting firewood on an early summer morning, or sitting next to a fire at his camp in Corinna, Maine.He will forever be remembered for his hard work ethic and dedication to finish everything he started. He often accomplished tasks by himself that would normally require the help of many. He mostly looked forward to Sunday dinners at his home in Albion with his girlfriend Kylie Turner, children Jake, Jaron, Jestil, Mathew, and grandchildren Juliet, Wesley, Kaden, Avery, and Landon. He had a very strong connection and relationship with his grandchildren and often expressed how he loved nothing more than being a “Pep” and feeling the love they gave him. Usually at Sunday dinners you could expect that John would have a joke or two to tell.Johns’ legacy will continue to live on through his mother Edna; his four children Jake, Jaron, Jestil, and Matt; his five grandchildren Juliet, Wesley, Kaden, Avery, and Landon; his siblings Lana, Ricky, Ruthy, and Brian; his partner of many years Kylie; his longtime friend Ryan, and his customers of many years.Gone from this world, but forever in our hearts
