Romeo “Minno” Sansoucy, 90, of Lewiston, died unexpectedly on Sunday, November 3, 2013, at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center in Lewiston. He was born in Lewiston on February 5, 1923, the son of Napoleon and Lauza Baron Sansoucy. He attended local schools and graduated from Lewiston High School, Class of ’41. On May 9, 1944, he married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Jeanette Richard. They were married for 69 years. During his life, “Minno” was a sales executive for WLAM Radio, and later retired from the Lewiston Sun Journal. He was longtime member of Martindale Country Club and later the Poland Spring Country Club. An avid and very loyal New England sports fan, he was an “armchair manager” for his beloved Boston Red Sox. Although he never second-guessed the manager, he always felt he could have made a better decision.
