- April 23, 2010

MILO - "Davey" David C. McLaughlin, 45, died April 23, 2010, at his home, as a result of complications from diabetes. Born April 15, 1965, in Lincoln, to David and Dawn (Nicholson) McLaughlin, Davey was the eldest of three children. He was always a comic at heart and he loved to laugh and talk. Davey had a very special relationship with his grandson and "little buddy," Mason Farrar, of Brownville. Davey loved to fish, hunt and ride in the woods. Davey loved campfires, trashcan turkeys and Hank Williams. He had been employed for several years with Pelletier Logging of Millinocket, and was an integral part of the TV show, "American Loggers." He quickly made friends with the producers and crew and loved the fact that the show brought him new friends as a result of his exposure. He leaves behind his best friend and girlfriend of 10 years, Laurie Carey; and his dog, Mickey. Davey is survived by his sons, Adam and Ryan of Milo; his beloved grandson, Mason; his unborn granddaughter, Karley Lisa Marie; his father, David of LaGrange; his sister, Charity and her husband, Scott Rudge and their daughters, Nichole and Courtney, of Medway; his brother, Joseph and his wife, Lori and their children, Jesse, Brooke, Gage and Riley, of Milo; and his great-niece, Lexxi Lynne. Davey will also be missed by his best friends, Ken Demers and Bert Babin. Davey was hard working, outgoing and true to his friends and family. He was a "people person" who never knew of strangers - only friends he hadn't yet met. Davey was predeceased by his mother, Dawn, in December 2002. Family and friends may visit 1-4 p.m. Saturday, May 1, at East Branch Sno-Rovers Clubhouse, Hathaway Road, Medway. Memorial contributions in Davey's honor may be made to David McLaughlin, care of Maine Savings FCU, P.O. Box 447, Milo, ME 04463, to assist his family during this difficult time. Arrangements by Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, 69 State St., Brewer. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not meant to be. So he put his arms around you and he said, "Come to me." With tearful eyes, we watched you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best. We love you, Davey!
