Clinton - John Stephen Achramowicz Jr., 82, died August 8, 2019, at his home in Clinton after a rapid decline. \r\n\r\nBorn in Ipswich, Massachusetts on July 20, 1937, to John Stephen Achramowicz Sr. and Barbara Ann (Claxton) Achramowicz. He graduated from Ipswich High School and attended The Colorado School of Mines. \r\n\r\nOn October 13, 1956, John married the love of his life, the former Joyce Lorraine Tardiff. Early in his working years he worked at AVCO on the heat shield for the space program. The woods and the waters of Maine called him, and the family relocated to Clinton in the mid-60s just up the road from his in-laws. John was an entrepreneur for the remainder of his career. He spent his leisure time fishing and hunting the Allagash, the waters off the coast of Georgetown Maine and Newfoundland Canada. \r\n\r\nHe was predeceased by his parents; sister Helen Burns; son-in-law Jonathan Lord; brothers-in-law Emery Tardiff, James Karns and Charles Crosby Jr. \r\n\r\nJohn is survived by his devoted wife Joyce; his son John III; daughter Donna Lord; his one and only grandson Corey John Achramowicz; sisters Judy Welch, and Susan Messenger (and Bruce) of Arizona; sisters-in-law Joanne Crosby of Topsham, Carol Karns and Debbie Fulford of Virginia; brother-in-law Dr. Richard Burns of New Hampshire; and many nieces and nephews scattered around the country, but dear to his heart. \r\n\r\nAt John's request there will be no service. \r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers his exact words were "Take someone fishing."
