ST. ALBANS & T4 R16—David S. Dyer, 60, passed away March 9, 2009 at a Bangor hospital after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was born March 5, 1949 in Hartland a son of Stanley H. and Patricia (Heath) Dyer. David married Deborah Robertson in 1999 in St. Albans with their beloved black lab “Tasha” by their side. He attended Palmyra schools and graduated from Hartland Academy in 1967. After graduation Dave joined the Army Reserve in Dexter and was active from 1968 to 1974. He served as town selectman in Palmyra and coached many Little League, and basketball teams. He was a past master of the Meridian Splendor Lodge #49 A. F. & A. M. in Newport and was instrumental in building the new lodge.

From 1976 to 2000, Dave worked as an engineering consultant for Kleinschmidt & Dutting in Pittsfield, Acheron Engineering in Newport, Prof. Survey & Engineering and Dirigo Engineering in Waterville. After working for others for many years, Dave and Debbie started “St. Albans Stove Shop” out of their garage in St. Albans and soon purchased a larger location on Rt. 2 in Palmyra where the business still thrives. He was very proud of the business that they worked hard to build and knew success was directly related to great customer service. For the last few years, Dave enjoyed spending his winters in the warmth and the sun of Ft. Myers Beach, FL. Once home from Florida he would be anxious to spend spring, summer and fall at Elm Pond with Deb and Tasha at “Dyer Straits”, the camp he built with his son, brother and many friends in T4-R16. He loved fishing and was always in search of the perfect rod & reel combination. In 2008, Dave got a moose permit for the first time and was happy to share the very successful hunt with his grandsons, son, brother and friends.

He is survived by his mother, Patricia Dyer of Corinna; his wife of 9 years, Deborah of St. Albans; 2 children, Darrin and wife Kathy Dyer of Palmyra and Deanna and husband Mitchell Harris of Blaine; a brother, Dennis and wife Deborah Dyer of Dover-Foxcroft ; a sister, Vicki (Dyer) and husband Mark Parker of Corinna; 4 grandchildren, Andrew, Matthew, Ashlee and Adrienne; several beloved nieces and a nephew.
