- Mr. Kenneth Bertram Averill, 80, of Frederick, MD, formerly of Orono, ME, passed away on April 28, 2017. He was the loving husband of Lucille Averill for 27 years. Born on December 16, 1936, to the late Roger L. Averill and Lilith Sproul Averill.
Ken enjoyed observing his surroundings and the people in them but he also enjoyed being the center of attention. During his time he loved lighting for and occasionally participating with Robinson's Ballet. His other side was a true outdoors man who treasured being around the water enjoying lighthouses, boating especially with Wayne Hamilton, the beach and going on cruises. He and Lucille with other family members have gone on 17 cruises during their lifetime together. Ken loved to camp where his greatest pleasure, as well as Lucille's, was that he did the cooking. He was an artist who loved his old trucks and his black Monte Carlo.
In addition to his wife he is survived by his stepson; Andrew Brown and his wife Tracy. Grandchildren; KayLeann, Xander, Cavanaugh, Zachary and Kaitlynn. Daughter; Kelly Grondin and husband Luke.
