MY LIFE WAS NOT A JOURNEY TO MY GRAVE WITH THE
INTENTION OF ARRIVING SAFELY  IN A PRETTY
WELL PRESERVED BODY, BUT RATHER I SLID IN BROADSIDE,
THOROUGHLY USED UP, TOTALLY WORN OUT,
AND LOUDLY PROCLAIMING...
WOW ..  WHAT A RIDE!

Larry D. Doody
LarryCARIBOU - Larry David Doody, 55, died unexpectedly Feb. 29, 2008, in New Sweden, doing what he loved the most, going fast on his snowsled. He was born Aug. 25, 1952, in Caribou, the son of David and Louise (Erickson) Doody. "Crazy Larry," a true Maine legend, was the proud owner of Doody's Sled Shop. He spent many happy days racing at and running Spud Speedway. Racing was one of the true passions in Larry's life and he was a true Dale Earnhardt fan. Larry loved life and believed in living each day to its fullest. He spent many of his days volunteering in the community for local charities. Larry was a longtime member of Caribou Lions Club, where he was awarded the Melvin Jones Fellow Award by Lions Club International in 2006. With the heart of a child in mind, he often reached out anonymously to make a child's dream come true, but it always brought a tear to his eye know-ing that a child was in need. Larry is survived by his son, Jason Doody and wife, Jen, of Vancouver, Wash.; his sister, Linda Pelletier and her husband, Sonny, of Mapleton; several nieces, nephews and cou-sins. He will be remembered and missed by Becky and Aubrey Cummings, and Cameron Ouellette, his grandson, who was one of the most important children in his life. Larry considered Mark Nadeau to be a brother. His closest companion was his dog, Buster. Friends may visit with the family noon until time of services Tuesday, March 4, at Mockler Funeral Home, 24 Reservoir St., Caribou. A celebration of Larry's life will take place 3 p.m. at the funeral home with Bill Harris officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to a children's charity of your choice in Larry's honor.
