Albert Lepitre, 83, of Marcotte Ave. in Claremont, NH, passed away Tuesday evening December 15, 2020, peacefully at home.
He was born in 1937 at Claremont General Hospital to Henry and Alice (Provencher) Lepitre. He was predeceased by his siblings: Edward Lepitre, Irene Lassonde-West, and Germaine Devenger, and his grandson Bradley Valenzuela. His sister, Doris McCusker currently lives in Tennessee.
After graduating in 1954 from Stevens High School, Albert entered the Navy where he served for four years. At the age of 29 he married his lovely wife, Angela Giacobbe, with whom he shared 54 years and had three children.
His favorite thing in the world was playing golf. After retiring from Vermont National Bank, he spent much of his time with friends at the Claremont Country Club. He was a skilled carpenter and filled his home with beautiful, hand-made furniture. He had many interests, the greatest of which were cooking, reading, and learning. Before the internet came long, there was always a dictionary next to his chair and a batch of encyclopedias nearby. He had a quick wit which he shared with us until the very end.
He is survived by his children Ken Lepitre (and his wife Terri), Jennifer Barden, and Judy Walcott as well as his grandchildren: Angela Bean (and her husband Josh) and their two daughters Sam and Charlie, Allison Kelloway (and her husband Tim) and their son Sawyer, Emma Walcott, Rachel and Isabella Barden, Sarah Lepitre and Sean Valenzuela.
There will be a Memorial service at The Stringer Funeral Home, 146 Broad Street, in Claremont at 11:00 am on Wednesday, December 23rd , with a viewing hour 10 to 11 one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow a St. Mary Cemetery. Mask wearing and social distancing will be required. No reception will follow at this time due to COVID. The family suggests donations to be made in his memory to the Claremont Soup Kitchen, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Lake Sunapee VNA or Alzheimer’s research.
