ZEPHYRHILLS, FLA., AND EAST MILLINOCKET - Daniel Ray Deveau, 28, Zephyrhills, Fla., and East Millinocket, died as the result of a motorcycle accident March 13, 2015. Anybody that knew Dan would know he died doing something that he loved, riding with friends and family. Daniel was born in Bangor, Feb. 24, 1987, the son of Jeffrey Deveau and Ruth (Boynton) Deveau Darling.
Daniel had a bigger than life personality who enjoyed many friends in his life. His friends have described him as genuine, amazing inside and out, vibrant, daredevil, hilarious, and one of the best friends a person could have. He could light up a room with his infectious smile and laughter. He made the world a better place, was gentle, kind, good natured and unafraid of being himself. One of the greatest pleasures in his life was his daughter, Rhylie.
He was a very loving dad who enjoyed teaching his daughter about the great outdoors and motorcycle riding.
Daniel enjoyed motorcycles from a very early age and that interest led him to Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) in Orlando, Fla., to learn the trade of motorcycle technician. He worked at Affordable Motor Sports in Zephyrhills, Fla., since his graduation from MMI.
He is survived by his mother, Ruth Darling; his daughter, Rhylie, and his significant other, Candace Rhoades, of Florida; his brother, Adam Deveau and his significant other, Tina Deschene, and nephew, Jeffrey, of Holden; his maternal grandmother, Joan Boynton of Florida; his fraternal grandfather, Albert Deveau of East Millinocket; many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his father, Jeffrey Deveau; his stepfather, Kenneth Darling; grandmother, Loretta Deveau; and grandfather, Wade Boynton.
Friends may call 9-11 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Temple, East Millinocket, with funeral services being held at 11 a.m. with Pastor Regginal Adams officiating.
