Reid Durost Obituary, Death – Reid Alan Durost, who was 37 years old, passed away on March 9, 2024, in a nearby hospital. The 19th of January, 1987 found him being born in Presque Isle. His parents, Dick and Lynne (Currie) Durost, were his parents. Following the family’s relocation to Hallowell, he continued his education at Presque Isle schools until the eighth grade, at which point he transferred to Hall Dale High School, where he graduated with the class of 2005. He was a goaltender for soccer, a threat in basketball with three points, and a catcher in baseball. He was highly skilled in all three sports.

In the course of his senior year, he was given the opportunity to become the home announcer for the Hall Dale basketball teams, which served as the foundation for one of his interests. As a result of his attendance at the New England School of Communications (NESCOM), which is located on the campus of Husson University, he was able to rapidly improve his abilities as a sports public address announcer and eventually became known as the “Voice of the Eagles” in a number of different sports.

During his adult years, he continued his profession as an announcer by working the MPA Invitational Basketball Tournament, as well as various state championships in lacrosse and other sports. Not only did he work for Husson, but he also worked as an announcer for a number of athletic events that took place at the University of Maine. His former business, which he ran under the name DJ Reid, was a successful DJ service that catered to weddings and other parties.

Reid had a reputation for having a big heart and for being a friend to everyone, especially those who were in a difficult situation. Family was very important to him, and he eagerly anticipated reunions with the Currie and Durost families. He had a soft spot in his heart for animals, particularly Neo, the rescue dog he cherished so much. When he was younger, he looked up to his older brothers, Scott, Jeremy, and Brad Durost, who served as role models for him.

Reid had lately found his place in the world by working for the Department of Transportation of the State of Maine as a Transportation Management Specialist 1 and had discovered that his service to the Department was where he truly belonged. Over the course of the past few years, he has rekindled his passion for the sport of soccer. He went to North Carolina to witness a professional game in the previous year, and he is currently making plans to travel to England in the near future.

He is survived by his mother, Lynne Currie-Rodrigue of Augusta, her husband, Joe Rodrigue, and his sons, Joe and Steve; Reid’s dad, Dick Durost of Augusta, Dick’s wife, Marcelle Durost; Dick’s mother, Betty Durost of Mars Hill and Houlton; Lynne’s Dad, Reggie Currie of Howland; Lynne’s brothers, Aaron Currie and Mike Currie, and Mike’s wife, Leslie; brother Scott Durost, wife, Stacie, and daughter, Lyndsie, of Bangor; brother Jeremy Durost, wife, Kelly, and daughters, Julia and Savanah of Edinburg; brother, Brad Durost, wife, Maria, daughter, Bella and son, Brady, of South Portland; and Marcelle’s daughter, Ashley Marble, partner, Joni Britt, daughter, Brooklyn and son, Bo, of Louisville, KY. Additionally, Dick’s triplet siblings, Joy Durost Graham and her husband Bob of Naples, Jan Durost of Mars Hill, and Jay Durost and his wife Mary of Bucksport, which are all members of the Durost family.

Additionally, Reid is survived by a large number of cousins. Last but not least, he took great pleasure in being the most beloved uncle of the grandchildren in the family. At the time of his passing, his grandmother, Nancy (Engstrom) Currie, as well as his grandfather, Paul Durost, had already passed away.
Our family would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Tavares, as well as the nurses and personnel working in the Critical Care Unit at Maine General Hospital, for the kind care they provided during his brief stay there. In addition to making the awful bearable for Reid, you also made it bearable for all of us.
