Craig Doucette

WALDOBORO — Craig Anthony Doucette, 42, died June 5, 2021, after taking his own life.

Born Feb. 1, 1980, Craig attended Camden-Rockport schools, and ignited his passion for vehicles at Mid-Coast School of Technology. He loved Maine, the outdoors, his pets, and he adored his children, often enjoyed taking them fishing.

From a very young age, Craig enjoyed fixing things, usually after he broke them. He had a passion for vehicles, and this led him to become a skilled mechanic and fabricator. Anyone that knew Craig knew if he couldn’t make a vehicle run, there was no fixing it.

Craig is survived by his girlfriend Kathy Grierson and their two children, Bailey and Mason; father Robert Doucette; mother and stepfather Cheryl and Warren Alderson; sister Renee Flanders and her family; paternal grandmother Faye Doucette and maternal grandmother Emma Teel; as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather Forest Doucette and maternal grandfather Clyde Teel.

Craig had a good heart, proven by his choice to become an organ donor, but sadly he was still troubled, and substance abuse disorder won in the end.

Service and remembrance will be held June 27 at the Waldoboro First Baptist Church at 1 p.m.
