Houlton - Douglas D. Desiderio, 62, passed away Wednesday February 27, 2019 at the Aroostook House Of Comfort in Presque Isle, with family by his side. He was born September 23, 1956, in Hartford, CT, the son of the late Raymond J. and Rosemarie (Cyr) Desiderio.
Doug grew up in Van Buren and graduated from Van Buren High School in 1975. He then graduated from N.M.V.T.I. In 1977 with an associates degree in Consumer Electronics. Doug married Suzanne Tomah later that summer and they would share almost forty two years of marriage together. In the early eighties Doug went to work for Al Putnam and shortly after started his own carpentry business. He loved his job and was hardworking, honest, and always quite particular. Carpentry was also a hobby and there are many specialized furniture items he has made for his family over the years. In his spare time he enjoyed working in his vegetable garden. He loved his family very much and was always happiest when he was with them.
He is survived by his wife Suzanne Desiderio of Houlton, a daughter Christina Fitzpatrick and her husband D.J., two grandchildren: Abram and Darby Fitzpatrick all of Houlton, a brother Lee Desiderio of Portland, and a niece Roslin Desiderio of Oakland.
