Leo Charpentier

Leo Charpentier, 91, a lifelong resident of Manchester, NH, died suddenly on April 20, 2021. He was born in the city on January 22, 1930. A son of the late Ernest and Marie Ange (Tremblay) Charpentier. Leo was French-Canadian, raised catholic, and was one of nine children. He was authentic. Just an honest, loving, and hardworking man who believed everyone was a friend of his. He will be missed by many in the community.
As a young man, he served three years in the Air Force before returning home to marry the love of his life. On April 19, 1952 Leo happily married Elizabeth E. Blood, "Betty." Together they had three children Elaine, David, and Henry. He supported his family as a construction worker, building most of the Queen City as we know today, and was part of the Laborers' Local 668. After he retired, he continued to work for almost three decades at the law offices of Moquin and Daley, who he considered a second family.
Staying active and busy was the key to his long and healthy life. He never knew how to quit as his wife would tell you. He did know how to have a good time. He enjoyed things like listening to music, drinking 7&7s, playing cards, going to Vegas and Foxwoods, reminiscing and joke telling. He was an active member at the west sides Alpine Club, the Rimmon Club, and the American Legion. You could find him every Sunday morning in church. He spent many years attending St. Patrick's before they closed and later Saint Raphael the Archangel Parish.
His home was always filled with family and good company. He loved spending every moment with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. All the way to the very end, his family was by his side. We love you Pep.
He was recently predeceased by his loving and devoted wife of 68 years, Betty, who would have turned 91 on the day Leo passed away. He also lost his grandson, Sean M. Charpentier, in 2017. As well as brothers - Armand Charpentier, Roland Charpentier, George Charpentier, Roger Charpentier, and Albert Charpentier and their sister Jeannette Montour.
