Emile was born in Leominster on February 26, 1933, son of Honorat and Eva Comeau and lived in Leominster all his life. He was a paratrooper serving in the Korean War. While in the airborne he completed 38 jumps. After serving his country, he worked at Wachusett Potato Chip as well as Digital. He was a long time member of St. Cecilia’s Parish.
Emile was an incredible person. He raised a wonderful daughter, helped care for 3 grandchildren, and loved spending time with his 3 great grandchildren.
He was a proud pépère and a dedicated family man. Nothing made him happier then spending time with his family. He loved his old western shows and was also an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan. He enjoyed doing carpentry work and making furniture pieces for his family. He woke up every morning with a cup of coffee and crossword puzzle in hand. He spent many afternoons playing cards and cribbage with his wife.
