BURRILLVILLE - Brother Roger G. Argencourt, 64, of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Provincial House, Pascoag, died suddenly Monday at the Provincial House. The former New Hampshire high school teacher was accused in April of molesting a teenage student in 1974.

The lawsuit was filed against Argencourt by Jeffrey Linton, an Afton, Va., man.

Argencourt formerly taught history and was head of the social studies department at Bishop Guertin High School in Concord, N.H. He was the school's student activities director when the allegations surfaced in January. He left at that time.

Born in Lewiston, Maine, Jan. 16, 1938, he was the son of Laurette (Beaulieu) Dubuc of Lewiston, Maine.

He was educated in parochial schools in Lewiston, graduating in 1957. He professed his first vows in 1959 in Pascoag and his final vows in 1965 at Mount St. Charles Academy, Woonsocket.

He received his bachelor of arts degree in 1965 from St. Michael's College, Colchester, Vt., and a master's degree in education at Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich., in 1972. He received a master of arts degree at Scranton University in Scranton, Penn., in 1978.

He was a teacher for more than 30 years at various schools including Mount St. Charles Academy and the former Sacred Heart Juniorate -- a school for the brothers -- in Pascoag. He taught social studies and religious studies, and had served as an athletic director and business manager in various schools.

He was also a missionary in Zambia, Central Africa, in the 1960s and again in the 1980s.

Besides his mother, he leaves a nephew, Ronald Morin of Auburn, Maine; and cousins. He was the brother of the late Jackie Dubuc.

A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Provincial House, 685 Steere Farm Rd..
