Bristol, NH — Clarence N. Levesque, 73, died May 10, 2013. He was born February 9, 1940, in Baker Lake, New Brunswick, Canada, to Albenie and Irma (Tardif) Levesque.
Clarence died at home at his beloved Newfound Lake with his loving family and friends at his side. Clarence came to the United States at the age of 16 and proceeded to build a life and legacy to be admired. He began as a dishwasher and a few years later, started working as a sheet rocker. At the age of 22, he started his own contracting company. For 50 years he ran his own business, C. Levesque Co., and later, Walls Unlimited, Inc. He was a determined and hard-working man. He always had a twinkle in his eye, a firm handshake, and he loved to laugh. He enjoyed his winters in St. Thomas, his summers gardening and motorcycling around Newfound Lake, but most of all he loved his family and his work. He was a kind, genuine man who was loved and adored by everyone who knew him.
Clarence aimait la vie et il avait la joie de vivre!
