Andrew J. Michaud, 86, of Biddeford died Wednesday, February 19, 2020. He was born in Waterville, Maine on November 8, 1933. He was the only child of the late Andrew and Elizabeth (Levasseur) Michaud.
Andrew was a graduate of Waterville High School. He worked in the banking and credit union industry for over 47 years, starting in Waterville, before moving his family to Biddeford in 1974 to work at Biddeford Savings Bank. He retired as the President and CEO of St. Joseph’s Credit Union, now PeoplesChoice Credit Union, in 2002, after 22 years of service.
Despite his extensive professional and family responsibilities, Andrew spent thousands of hours volunteering in his community. He strived to improve the area’s economy and quality of life for the residents of Biddeford. Andrew served on leadership positions on the Board of “The Arena” and on the City of Biddeford’s Parks and Recreation Commission. He was a member of the City’s Economic Improvement Commission for over three decades, serving as chair for ten years.
Andrew was a passionate sports competitor and fan. He played high school hockey and baseball and continued to play on various leagues as a young adult. Andrew was an avid golfer at Dutch Elm Golf Course, and would often attend his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events.
Andrew loved learning, and was a voracious reader in the topics of languages, politics, and most of all Civil War history. He spent countless hours analyzing and taking copious notes of the books he read.
Andrew will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 60 years, Jeanette, and their six children; Adele Ring and her husband Michael of Edgewater, FL, Mary Harris-Shaw of Houston, TX, Tina Michaud of Woodstock, GA, Anthony Michaud and his wife Sarah of Kennebunk, ME, Christine Nalty and her husband Richard of Glenelg, MD, and Terry Vorobel and her husband George of Woodstock, GA, and his ten grandchildren.
