Kevin Peter Soule, 59, died July 4th at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. Kevin was born March 13, 1964 in Rockport to Peter B. Soule and Marcia E. Willey-Soule. Kevin graduated from Medomak Valley High School and Washington County Vocational Technical Institute.
Although Kevin was a master electrician for many years, he was also well known wearing many other hats in the community. He began serving his community as a fire fighter when he was only 15 years old. He rose through the ranks of the fire department and became the Union Fire Chief in 2013. He was honored as Firefighter of the Year in 2007. One of his favorite parts about being a firefighter was showing the local children the fire trucks during Fire Prevention Week. He was a member of the Union Masonic Lodge #31, and a member of the Kora Shrine Temple- where he loved making people smile racing around with the Kora Mini Racers during parades. He was also a prominent supporter of Union Fair, both as their electrician as well as the countless odd jobs he did at the fair grounds throughout the year.
He had many skills that always kept him busy and involved with both his family and the community. He had quite the green thumb that showed in both his gardens and his commercial greenhouse that he sold thousands of hanging baskets over the past 6 years. He was also a talented woodworker in his spare time. He was known to be the ultimate community and family man, who would help and support anyone in need.
He is predeceased by his parents.
He is survived by his wife, Deborah Soule of Union
Daughter, Samantha Soule of Westbrook
Son, Ryan Soule of Union
Sister, Kassi Soule of Union
Step-mother, Myrna Soule of Union
