LEWISTON: Oscar X. Hebert, 87, of Dixfield peacefully passed away on Friday February 12, 2021 at CMMC in Lewiston with his loving family by his side. He was born in Caribou on August 18, 1933 a son of the late Edward and Margaret (LaBell) Hebert. He grew up in Caribou and attended local schools. He was a graduate of Caribou High School.

During that time, Oscar worked as Millwright for International Paper in Jay from which he would retire. After retirement, he started a recycling company named Reclaimed Salvage that he ran for many years. He will always be remembered for his love of baseball, football and spending quality time with his family at any type of gathering they had.

Oscar was a very kind, loving, honest man! I only knew him from my work, as he would come get tractor parts from me. In the last 7 years of knowing him, I had grown to adore him as a customer and a friend. I learned that I actually knew some of his relatives (as it is a small world) and what amazing people they are as well. I heard many of his stories and life lessons he learned along the way, and enjoyed every one of them. He spoke very highly of his first two wives and their lives together. He also spoke very highly of his lady friend Mavis, and there was never a bad word about anyone. If you taught me anything Oscar, it is that there are still many great men left on this earth, and if you knew Oscar, you were blessed because he was one of those men. Rest Easy Oscar. Fly high with those angels that have left us before! Until we meet again :)
