Ray Legendre of Saco passed away peacefully at his home on November 17, 2021, surrounded by family, after brave battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Ray was born on February 10, 1959, to William and Rose Legendre of Saco.
Ray graduated from Thornton Academy in 1978. After graduating, he served his country in the U.S. Navy where the ship on which he served was positioned in the Gulf of Oman during the attempted rescue mission of the US Embassy staff in Tehran in 1980.
Upon returning from the Navy, he met his wife, Cheryl. Together they enjoyed traveling to many different places. His favorites were Russia and Hawaii.
Ray was an electrician who gained various experience on both commercial and residential projects including The Big Dig in Boston. He owned and operated Legendre Electric in Saco for over 30 years.
Ray's hobbies included hunting, fishing, remodeling projects, and yard work. He loved spending time at the family camp at West Cary Pond. Ray also loved watching old movies and programs about archeological digs and the arts on the History Channel.
Nothing was more important to Ray than spending time with family and friends, especially his son Alex. He loved hosting barbecues and cooking large holiday dinners. He would always say "the more the merrier." He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.
Ray was predeceased by his parents William and Rose Legendre, and his beloved son Aleksei "Alex" Legendre.
He is survived by his wife Cheryl of Saco, 2 brothers Raynald Legendre of Saco and Robert
Legendre and his wife Roberta of Burleson Texas. He is also survived by two brothers-in-law
Gerald Savage and his wife Sandra of Harrisburg, PA, and John Savage and his wife Michele of Old Orchard Beach. Two sisters-in-law Ellen Lumb and her husband David of Winter Springs, Florida, and Jennifer J. Savage of Saco. In addition, he leaves many nieces and nephews.

Our deepest condolences to Cheryl, Raynald, Robert, and the rest of Ray's family. Even though our lives went in different directions as adults, I have many happy memories of Ray's family and our family together when we were kids. In the summer, the 3 boys and their mom, "Aunt Rose", would visit every week at our camp on Little Ossipee Lake. Our families were truly blessed to have such happy times and wonderful parents. Our hearts mourn with all of yours over Ray's passing.
