STRONG - Richard Robert Dubuc, 74, of Strong, died unexpectedly on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020.

He was born on April 18, 1946, in Biddeford, the son of the late Henry and Maria (Rheaume) Dubuc, and little brother “Ricky” to his late sisters Simone and Rita.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served in the Vietnam War aboard the USS Brooke.

On Jan. 30, 1971, he married Linda Louise Dickinson. Rick retired from Hannaford in 2004, after nearly forty years of employment with the company. After his retirement, he became Reverend of Mountain View Bible Church in New Vineyard. His dedication to his church and parishioners was matched only by his love and devotion to his late wife Linda who passed away in 2012. Throughout the years, he enjoyed spending time outdoors, be it camping with family, hiking or cutting firewood.

Rick is survived by his three sons, Keith of Strong, Glenn of Oakland, Pete and wife Sarah of South Portland; one granddaughter, Brittany; and two grandsons, Bowen and Noah.

According to Rick’s wishes and current health guidelines, a private burial will be held at the Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery, 163 Mt. Vernon Road, in Augusta. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Dan & Scott’s Cremation & Funeral Service, 488 Farmington Falls Rd., Farmington, ME 04938.

  1. You will be sadly missed Rick, from the chats at work and online we used to have to the rhubarb you would share with me each year, you were a very honorable man. Rest In Peace my friend....

  2. Rick loved the Lord. He expounded God's Word and brought conviction to others through his sermons to not only receive the free gift of salvation but live a life pleasing to their Creator, Savior and Lord . Rick will be greatly missed. So glad to know he has been reunited with his wife, Linda. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his boys whom he cherished along with other family members.

  3. Your Neighbor Joe and Molly Bishop. Go rest High on the Mnt. Brother. See you when it's all said and Done here, on this Earth. God is Good.

  4. I have known the Dubuc family for 35 years. Rick was a wonderful Christian friend to me. To Keith, Glenn and Peter and the grandchildren my prayers and thoughts are with you all. May our Heavenly Father be close to all of you at this time.

  5. Rick was a good friend of mine. He had a sincere heart for the Lord and his emotions showed this when he preached. He cared deeply for people and wanted to be sure all knew the Lord. He loved his church!
    He always wrote his sermons on Monday morning. He probably had his sermon ready for the coming Sunday but the Lord took him home.
    When Linda passed, I was there for him. When my Jeannie passed, he was there for me.
    I loved to hear him preach and would visit Mountain View Church every now and then. We would go for lunch after church and enjoyed our time together.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with Keith, Glenn and Peter and all family and friends!
