April 24, 1929 ~ December 20, 2017 (age 88)

Herve Eugene Lavoie, 88, of Nashua, New Hampshire passed away peacefully on December 20, 2017 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH.

Herve was born in Nashua, New Hampshire on April 24, 1929.  Herve was the son of the late Mitchell and Beatrice Lavoie.  Herve was married to his loving wife, Cecile Lavoie, on January 1, 1948. They enjoyed 59 years of marriage until Cecile's passing in 2007.

Herve was a hard worker, where he began his career in California in hospitality management. Later he moved back to Nashua, New Hampshire where he became a lead carpenter at St. Joseph's Hospital and a real estate investor. He enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, going on casino trips, reading the daily paper, taking walks, riding his bicycle, playing Bingo, and having great conversations with everyone he met.  

Herve influenced many people to help them better their lives. He lived the '"pay it forward" life, and knew that he was blessed every day. He was a selfless man; his family and friends will remember him by his positive attitude and outlook on life. He would, and will always still remind us, "It's a beautiful day!". 

Herve is survived by his daughter, Maryanne Cronin and her husband Joseph of Hudson, NH; his daughter, Joanne Yanco and her husband Eric of Wake Forest, NC; and his daughter, Patricia Dowdle and her husband Dee of Glendale, AZ. He is also survived by his nine grandchildren, Amanda, Tori, Karen, Sherri, Matt, Ally, Kimberly, Tom, and Jennifer; as well as several great-grandchildren. Herve is also survived by one brother, Leo Lavoie and his wife Lorraine.

Herve was preceded in death by his loving daughter, Diane Towle and by his son, Harvey Lavoie.
