Our Heritage

Robert and Greta Bouchard moved from Caribou to Millinocket, Maine in 1980. They purchased an existing funeral home from David Wyse, and in 1992 built a new state-of-the-art facility at 11 Tamarack Street in Millinocket.

In 1997, the Bouchards acquired the James G. Dowd Funeral Home in Millinocket and East Millinocket. The East Millinocket Dowd facility became a branch facility of the Bouchard Funeral Home.


In August, 2006 they sold both funeral homes to Chip Lamson and his brother Mike. Chip has been a funeral director for 18 years. They are endeavoring to uphold the high standards the Bouchard's have set, currently operating as Lamson Funeral Home.
