Douglas- George “Joe” D. Gagnon, 69, passed away unexpectedly on Thurs., Oct. 14, 2021. George was husband of the late, Jean (Badgio) Gagnon.
        Joe is survived by his sisters, Frances Romblad of Palm Bay FL, and Louise Eldridge of North Scituate, RI; his brother, Normand Gagnon of Foster, RI and sister-in-law, Beatrice Gagnon of North Smithfield, RI; many nieces and nephews who will truly miss their uncle Joe, and his step children, Reina and Kelley Shelton. Joe was predeceased by his parents, George and Jeanne d’Arc Gagnon; his brother Andre “Andy” Gagnon; brother-in-law, Kenneth Romblad; and sister-in-law, Jane Gagnon.
        George worked for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation for 33 years. He was extremely passionate about his position with the DOT. He was still working full-time when he passed, always answering late night calls in treacherous weather conditions while ignoring his families request that he finally slow down. A natural teacher, he was extremely gratified whenever he got the opportunity to mentor a co-worker. He was a veteran of the United States Navy and a member of the Olive Branch Masons Lodge, A.F & A.M.
        George “Joe” was a generous, honorable, and loving man to his family and friends and will be forever missed.
