BLAINE – Larry A. Donnelly Sr., 74, died March 13, 2008, at a Presque Isle hospital. He was born April 15, 1933, in Mars Hill, son of Geo-rge and Julia (Snell) Donnelly. Larry was a 1951 graduate of Aroostook Central Institute. He worked along side his father as a farm hand before joining the armed forces for two years of active military duty, followed by eight years of Army Reserves. In October 1987, the U.S. Air Force honored Larry’s retirement for 20 years federal service rendered to the Loring Air Force Base Fire Department. He then went on to work for several years as a USDA produce inspector. After which, he retired from full time employment. Larry worked the yearly harvest for County Super Spuds, because he enjoyed being actively involved with the harvest season. Larry was an active member of Mars Hill Volunteer Fire Department for 23 years, serving his community from 1959 to 1979. He was most recently honored for his 50 years of service, receiving a certificate and trophy given to him by the American Legion Post No. 118, Mars Hill. Larry was an avid sports fan, he was delighted to see the Boston Red Sox win the World Series, not once, but twice in his lifetime. He enjoyed passing his knowledge of sports on to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was also an outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, walking and riding around the “mountain” to spot big bucks. Larry is survived by his loving wife of 27 years, Geneva (Dubay) Donnelly of Blaine; sons, Donald Donnelly and his wife, Marie, of Branson, Mo., and Troy Donnelly of Tacoma, Wash.; stepsons, Omer Prue Sr. and his wife, Susan, of Hudson, N.H., Phillip Prue of Enfield, Conn., and Roy Prue Sr. of Newport; stepdaughters, Julia Potvin and her husband, Michael, of Stratford, N.H., and Pamela Rideout and her husband, Danny, of Mars Hill; grandchildren, Austin Donnelly, Cortlin Donnelly, Brayden Donnelly, David Prue, Raymond Prue, Roy Prue Jr., Jessica Prue, Melissa Potvin, Jennifer Potvin, Alison Jordan and Alan Rideout; great-grand-children, Tyler Prue, Jacob Prue, Ericka Potvin and Hannah Chaput; several nieces and nephews.
