March 25, 1957 — April 17, 2024


Stockholm – Leland A. Ouellette, 67, died April 17, 2024 at his Stockholm residence surrounded by his family.  He was born in Caribou, March 25, 1957, the son of the late Albert and Julienne (Desroiser) Ouellette.  Leland was a 1976 graduate of Caribou High School and married Eva Wakem May 26, 1978.   He was employed by Ayer Farms for many years and was also a carpenter for Graden’s Frame and Finish.  Growing up on a farm gave Leland a life-long love of gardening.  It also taught him to be self-sufficient.  Eva never called a repair man because Lee could build, install, repair or fix anything from a washer to building a new “pigpen” complete with a brick fireplace at their camp on Madawaska Lake.  Speaking of fires, Leland learned from Mitchell (Eva’s father) the fine art of stifeling fire building. Leland’s family was his greatest joy and his biggest headaches/challenges.  He was bombarded with requests starting with Leland will you marry me? Dad my furnace is making a noise, I dropped my flashlight down the well  what do I do, how do I build a table, can you come cut down a tree for me, can you redo my kitchen, etc.  The man was never bored and was always puttering in the basement.   Surviving in addition to his wife Eva, of over 45 years, are his children Jemelia (Peter) McCorison, Selena Ouellette (Mike Loggans) and Anthony (Caitlin) Ouellette, his grandchildren Ghent and Saffayia Durepo and Maren Ouellette, who added much joy and love to his life.  From working on the tractor with Ghent, and eating Saffayia’s “Engrendo” and special delivery of strawberries to Maren.  He is also survived by three sisters, Rachel Damboise, Dorina Martin, Marlene Chasse and one brother Graden Ouellette, several nieces and nephews.  Friends may visit with the family 6-8 pm, Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at the Mockler Funeral Home, 24 Reservoir Street, Caribou.
