Roger R. Cousineau, 91, of Nature View Dr., passed away peacefully at his home on Mon. April 20, 2020 beside his loving family. He is survived by his adoring wife of 67 years, Lorraine A. (Ducharme) Cousineau.
           He is also survived by 4 children, Patricia Cousineau of St. Johnsbury, VT, Steven Cousineau and his wife Tara of Milton, MA, Karina Cousineau of Kingston, NY, and Su Cousineau of Jamaica Plain, MA, 2 beloved grandchildren, Sophie and Josie Cousineau, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by 3 siblings, Norman Cousineau, Francis Cousineau, and Gabrielle Rondeau. Roger also had an endearing friendship of over 50 years with Gordon and Jackie Kollett, Lou and (now deceased) Edward Kogut.
            Born in Woonsocket, RI on Aug. 21, 1928; Roger was the son of Emil and Loretta (Ouilette) Cousineau and was raised in Mendon, MA where he helped with the family farm. After completing Norfolk Agricultural School, Roger enlisted in the U.S Marine Corps during the WWII era, and proudly served for 3 years. Soon after returning from service, Roger and Lorraine met and were married in Pascoag, RI in 1952.
            A man of inexhaustible energy and enthusiasm, Roger ran Windmill Farm, a family dairy farm in South Uxbridge for nearly 10 years and then settled on Marywood Street in Uxbridge where he and Lorraine raised their family for 50 years. He became a national top salesman for Uforma / Shelby Business Forms for 40+ years where he won a record 17 ‘Salesman of the Year’ Awards and received vacation rewards to the Bahamas, Venezuela and Las Vegas.
          Roger enjoyed playing hockey, coaching little league baseball and supporting local athletics. He spent many summer vacations taking his family camping in New England, often with dear friends and extended family. Roger also sang with the Uxbridge Town Choir along with his wife and enjoyed playing guitar for friends and family on all occasions. A 20 year member of Thompson Raceway Golf Course, Roger’s long standing foursome of Larry Tancrell, Joe Salatiello, and Gordon Kollett were all proud WWII veterans and played golf well into their 80’s.
           Roger was good-natured, fun loving, had a great sense of humor and appreciated a good conversation. He loved life and above all loved his wife Lorraine, his family and friends. He’s remembered by his family as ‘Sweet Rog’ and as a caring and devoted husband, father, uncle and grandfather.
           As to his families’ wishes, services will be privately held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations in Roger’s memory may be made to the Uxbridge Senior Center, 36 S. Main St., Uxbridge, MA 01569.
