SOUTH PORTLAND - The pine tree state has lost one of its most influential non-profit leaders.
Founder and former CEO of the Special Olympics of Maine, Mickey Boutilier has died. In a statement from the organization, Mickey is described as a legend in the world of Special Olympics, devoting his entire life to improving the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
He passed away, with family members by his side, after a brief battle with an unknown illness. A celebration of his life will take a place at Camp Tall Pines in Poland. That date will later be announced by the organization.
