    • OBIT: oy J. Belanger, 90, a long-time resident of both Maine and Arizona, passed peacefully in his sleep at home on March 25th in Camden, Maine. Roy married Omerine Chaloult in 1946. Together they raised five daughters and had a happy 64-year marriage, with 30 descendants as of his passing.

      Roy was born to Ozithe Cote and Magloire Belanger in Connor, Maine. He had two brothers, Lawrence and Ernest, both predeceased. He leaves behind two sisters, Elda and Doris, and five daughters; Lela, Pamela, Judy, Debra and Trina.

      Roy's career began in Caribou, Maine as a potato farmer, and he soon added a potato brokerage operation. He founded Belanger's Farm Machinery, Inc. in 1955 as franchise dealer of Massey Ferguson and other brands of farming equipment. He won awards as Top Agricultural Dealer for New England, Pennsylvania and New York. Roy designed and built four homes, one especially unique and innovative.

      He served on various executive boards and committees in the community and in greater New England, including the Aroostook Prestile Treatment Project, Caribou Development Corp, Maine Dirigo FFA Foundation, Holy Rosary Parish Council, Aroostook Trust Co, and New England Farm Equipment Dealer's Association. A member of Rotary International for 40 years, he earned the Paul Harris Fellow Award in 1998 for distinguished service.

      Roy retired at age 55 and moved with Omerine from Caribou to Scottsdale, Arizona. They traveled 48 states, visited foreign countries, and especially enjoyed several cruises. They golfed, played bridge, and above all loved simply being together. In 2006, they moved to Camden, Maine to enjoy the seasons and return to their Maine roots. Omerine passed away suddenly in 2010. Roy courageously continued on without the love of his life. He took pleasure in spending time with his family and his many new friends at the Quarry Hill retirement community.

      Roy was a gentleman and a gentle man. He will be missed for his kindness and devotion to friends and family. His daughters are blessed to have had such a loving supportive father for these many years. His wise counsel and guidance have been precious gifts in their lives.

      He lived a full, happy, and successful life, and has now rejoined his beloved Omerine in heaven. We wish them eternal peace.
