MEDWAY – Patrick J. Federico, 80, husband of the late Lorraine Federico, passed away Monday, Feb. 22, 2010, surrounded by his family at his home. He was born March 17, 1929, son of Julian and Mary (Moscone) Federico. Pat attended St. Peter’s Catholic Church and was a member of Knights of Columbus, where he was a fourth degree Knight and member of Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. He was a charter member and past president of East Millinocket/Medway Chamber of Commerce. He was an active member of East Millinocket American Legion and was an honor guard. While serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he was stationed in Germany as a mechanic in the motor pool. When his tour of duty ended, he met and soon married the love of his life, Lorraine Gagnon and together they enjoyed 55 beautiful years. Pat started his business as an oil dealer. He also built, owned and operated a service station, car dealership and hardware store. Pat and Lorraine’s love of cooking led them to open PJ’s Pasta, which became a favorite dining spot for many. He loved vacationing with his family. Many fond memories were made at the camp he built on Cedar Lake where he enjoyed fishing, swimming, boating and good old fashion family fun. Cedar Lake was also the gathering place for the annual “Big Hunt,” where a good time was had by all. During trips to Sugarloaf you would often find him on the Tote Road trail with several grandchildren following close behind. His wonderful sense of humor and quick wit will be greatly missed. Pat is survived by three sons and one daughter, Dominic and his wife, Theresa and their children, Joseph, Todd, Tessa and Taia; Julian and his wife, Cheryl and their children, Chad, Jennifer, George and Ryan; Geno and his wife, Andrea and their son, Angelo; and Rose Deabay and her children, Rashell, Travis and Monica; and five great-grandchildren. In addition to his wife, he was predeceased by his parents; and brother, Henry. Friends may visit with the family 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, at Lamson Funeral Home, 17 Western Ave., East Millinocket. A funeral Mass in celebration of his life will be held 11 a.m. Friday at St. Peter’s Catholic Church of Christ the Divine Mercy Parish, 58 Cedar St., East Millinocket, with the Rev. Joel Cyr, pastor, presider. At the family’s request, gifts may be made to Katahdin Area Support Group, 10 Field St., Millinocket, ME, 04462. Messages of condolence may be made at
