Roland “Ike” Lecompte
December 29, 1929 - July 13, 2020
Roland “Ike” Lecompte, 90, of Lewiston, passed away peacefully at the Hospice House in Auburn on July 13th. Born December 29, 1929, in Brooklyn, NY, he was the son of Rene and Elizabeth Gagne Lecompte. In 1956, Ike married the former Constance Allen. Together they raised three wonderful children, Maryann Lecompte and partner Gerald Mathieu of Auburn, Susan and husband Keith Duffey of Poland, and Michael and wife Ronda Lecompte of Lewiston. Ike played football at Lewiston High School and joined the Coast Guard after his graduation in 1951. When he finished his tour of duty with the Coast Guard he studied tool and die making at the Allied School of Mechanical Trade in Chicago, IL. He worked as a machinist in Chicago, Lewiston, and South Portland until his retirement. After retiring, Ike started to design and make items out of wood in his basement workshop. His children and grandchildren were gifted many special wooden toys, furniture, and other items. Besides his children, Ike is survived by three grandchildren, Logan and Lauren Lecompte, Andrea and husband Aaron Webster, a great-grandson, Liam Webster and his “fur grandkids” Ramen Noodle and Ninja Noodle Duffey. He was pre-deceased by his brother Rene Lecompte Jr. The family would like to thank the staff of Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice for all the special care they gave Ike during his last days.
