About Devin

Devin graduated Leicester High School in 2002 and went on to Quinsigamond Community College part time taking courses in Criminal Justice. He also spent time on the Leicester Volunteer Fire Department.


Devin worked in the carpentry and electrical fields with local companies and spent a lot of his time helping friends and family with their home improvement projects.


In September 2006, he was selected for the Police Academy by Charlton Police Chief James Pervier and would have started December 2006.

On October 25, 2006 Devin passed away in his sleep from cardiac arrest due to Myocarditis of a viral origin. Heart disease comes in many forms and it does affect the young and old alike. Often times simple tests can prevent death, especially in young people.


Devin leaves behind his Mother (Janet), Father (Stuart), Sister (Elizabeth), his Fiancée Danielle, and what he would have enjoyed tremendously, his baby boy Austin (born 7 months later).


Devin always had a love of dirt bikes and started racing with the New England Sports Committee in 1999 and became an Expert Rider in his Third year of competition, not an easy accomplishment.


His professional racing #907 has been retired to Devin.
