Alfred “Al” J. Brosseau, 76, of Damariscotta, passed away on the evening of March 3 at the LincolnHealth – Miles Campus. Born on Aug. 31, 1940 in Canton, N.Y., he was the son of Alcide and Orma (Bercume) Brosseau.
Al grew up in New York until his early teen years. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served honorably for a couple years, mostly in Germany.

His computer engineering skills continued after retirement from the Coast Guard as he continued designing in the public sector.
