He was predeceased by his wife Loretta in 2013 and a brother, Gerard, who died at the age of 2 .
"Gerard" was born in Northbridge on Oct. 16, 1926 and was the son of Joseph and Rose (Blouin) Lemelin. He was employed at the Uxbridge Worsted , the Draper Corp. in Hopedale and retired as an LPN at Wrentham State School. He had a reputation of being dependable and meticulous in his work.  Gerard served in the U.S. Army beginning in 1945 and worked primarily in post WWII operations in Japan in 1946, receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1947. He was a devoted husband, caring for his beloved wife of 60 years during her 5+ year battle with cancer. He was also a devoted father, helping his sons on various projects and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. During his retirement, he drove for the former Fino Chrysler dealership delivering cars between dealerships. This was a job he truly loved, as he had the opportunity to work with his wife.
