Obituary for Norbert J.P. Desmarais

Norbert J.P.  Desmarais
Orient, ME and formerly Lady Lake, FL and Manchester, CT. – Norbert J.P. Desmarais, 79 passed away unexpectedly on Sunday December 16, 2018, in Erwin TN. He was born in New Bedford, MA on June 23, 1940, the Loving son of the late Napoleon J. and Germaine (Champagne) Desmarais.

Devoted husband of 41 years to the late Janet I. (Miller) Desmarais. He proudly served in the United States Air Force. He was a member of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of CT and a Shriner member. Norby enjoyed life after his retirement from his machine shop, D&R Machine Company in CT with Jan. He especially enjoyed sitting high up on his John Deere mowing everyone’s lawn at Camp, whether they needed it or not. He was the most happiest on his boat fishing, even though the big one got away. In his early years, he would be in the basement for hours fly tying. He was an avid fisherman (winning tournaments), a hunter (getting 2 moose by accident) and a golfer (2 hole-in-ones) until arthritis made it difficult. He loved most being in Maine, at the camp. He considered everyone up at East Grand Lakes as his family. He loved having an open door policy which always had someone dropping by for a drink (or few) and a game of Tuck or Mexican Train.

He touched a lot of people and he will be missed by many family and friends. Loving father of Michael and Kim Lawrence of TX, Kendra and Rick Sheehan of MA, Scott and Nicole Desmarais of ME, Jonathan and Jennifer Desmarais of TN and Leona and Ian McNeill of NH. Brother of Gerard Desmarais of MA.Cherished grandfather of Devin, Laurel, Alexandria, Catherine, Peyton, Angelique, Emma and Madelyn, as well as a niece and nephews. A graveside funeral service will be held in the summer at the Orient Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may donate in Norby’s memory to the Wounded Warrior Project , PO Box 758517, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8517 or to the Anah Shriners, 1404 Broadway, Bangor, ME 04401.
