Obituary of Daryl L. Finnemore

Barnard Twp. - Daryl Lee Finnemore, 69, passed away January 4th, 2024, at home. He was born August 16th, 1954, in Plaster Rock, New Brunswick. He was the son of Reginald and Rose (Michaud) Finnemore. Daryl was a loving husband, son, father, brother and “Poppy”. Daryl was the 2nd of 10 children. He graduated from Fort Fairfield High School after growing up working in the potato fields in the County. Daryl went on to be a truck driver that had the privilege of seeing every one of the 48 continental United States and always loved a good adventure. He was as friendly, honest, and hardworking as they came. Give him 5 minutes and you would think you had been lifelong friends. Daryl was a loyal friend and was the first one to help if you called. He loved fishing and took great pride in the fact he could catch a brookie from any stream. He truly loved spending time with his family and adored his two grandchildren, Jaxson and Ellie, and will forever be remembered for his side-by-side rides and Father’s Day fishing trips around the back neighborhood. He could be found Friday nights at the football field cheering on his grandson. Daryl will be remembered for his famous fried chicken and the annual cookout at the Finnemore Homestead. Daryl is survived by his “beautiful bride” of 29 years, Louisa (Ames) Finnemore; his son, Douglas Lee Finnemore and significant other, Tina Carmichael, of Melbourne, FL; his daughter, Lindsey Zimmerman-Bushway and husband, Nick Bushway, of Sebec; his two grandchildren, Jaxson Zimmerman and Eleanor Bushway of Sebec; his mother, Rose (Michaud) Finnemore; his siblings, Delbert, Dave, Marina, Donna, Darlene, and Sherry; and many nieces, nephews, and great friends. He will be missed by longtime friends, David Parsons, Ted Woodward, James Callum, and Jason Lane. Daryl was predeceased by his father, Reginald Finnemore; brothers, Doug, Roger (Dana) Finnemore; and sister, Diane Johnston. There will be a celebration of life held in the summer on August 17th, 2024 the day after he would've turned 70. We will do what Daryl loved the most, getting family and friends together for good food and good company at the Finnemore Homestead. Arrangements are in the care of the Lary Funeral Home.
