Scottsdale, Ariz. — Ian Mauricette passed away July 5, 2019, at the age of 25. He was born on a sailboat in Charlotte Amalie, USVI, in 1993, and moved to Owls Head in 1997.

He was an active young man, infectiously happy and outgoing. Ian loved soccer, skiing, hiking and outright adventures of any sort. He passionately skied the Snow Bowl and Sugarloaf Mountains at every opportunity he could all winter long. He thoroughly enjoyed taking the path less traveled, hiking the trail unknown and skiing the backside of Sugarloaf without hesitation.

Ian graduated from Oceanside High School in 2013 and graduated with a bachelor's degree in parks, recreation and tourism with concentration in nature-based tourism from the University of Maine in 2017. He studied abroad in Costa Rica for a month directing a research project on the feasibility of adventure tourism.

Ian moved to Scottsdale, Ariz., in 2018, where he began studying to become a pilot. While in flight school, Ian worked as an inside sales representative for UPS, coordinating opportunities and proposals for customers. He lived fearlessly in a new part of the country, exploring national forests, parks and monuments with friends in his free time between work and flight school.

Ian is the son of Charlie and Emily J. Mauricette, both deceased. He is survived by his brother, Eric, and his wife, Brittany Mauricette; niece Emily Mauricette; uncle Peter and aunt Jan Johnson; uncle Kyp and aunt Susan Johnson; uncle Horace and aunt Jennifer Springer; cousins Silica Johnson, Seneca Johnson, Frederick Johnson, Taz Johnson, Dominique Dixon, Emily Johnson and Elizabeth Johnson.

A memorial service will be held Friday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. at Rockland Congregational Church, 180 Limerock St. Also, in Ian’s memory everyone is welcome to come hike Ragged Mountain, one of his favorite hikes, Saturday, Sept 14, at 9 a.m. from the Route 17 parking lot.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations in Ian’s memory be sent to Georges River Land Trust, 8 North Main St., Suite 200, Rockland, ME 04841.
