He is survived by his six children, Allyn Lister and his wife, Cheryl, Rick Lister and his wife, Patricia, Terry Lister and his wife, Rhonda, all of Caribou, Sherry Guerrette and her husband, Jim, Lori Fowle and her husband, Evert, and Evans Lister and his wife, Heather, all of Vassalboro; nine grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews.
