In 1962 he married Connie Poulin, his wife of 58 years. Together they raised their three daughters here in Maine, with the exception of one year in Washington State. Their Love story was an exceptional one right up until the end. It had a beautiful ending as Dick reunited with Connie in heaven on the same day exactly one year apart. Dick’s career of 40 plus years was spent in the paper industry where he worked in and ran numerous paper mills in Maine and Washington State, including Pejepscot Paper Mill, which brought he and his family back to his hometown of Lisbon Falls. He then transitioned to a sales position selling chemicals to paper mills in all of New England. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to fish and hunt. In his retirement, Dick enjoyed gardening, golfing and tying flies for Fly fishing. He also loved to bake bread and made a mean spaghetti sauce. Dick loved his wife, children and grand children and made it his life’s mission to care for them. Dick was “ a guys guy” and loved chatting and visiting with his buddies. Dick is preceded in death by his father Frank N Ham, his mother Margaret Gamache, his step father Leo Gamache and the love of his life Constance Poulin Ham. He leaves behind his three daughters whom he loved dearly, Heather Brannen of Poland, Kelly FitzPatrick and Her husband Joel of Harpswell, Stacey Floerchinger of Bowdoinham, his sister Jan Johnson and her husband Earl of Zephyr Hills Florida, his sister in law Sandra Pedersen and her husband David Pedersen of Canton Georgia.
