Marcel Gervais

Marcel A. Gervais, 57, of Groton, died in the home he loved on February 10, 2014. He was born in Woonsocket, Rhode Island on April 4, 1956, son of Yvette Harpin Gervais and the late Roland Gervais. He grew up in Woonsocket and was a graduate of Lincoln High School and Johnson and Wales Culinary Arts Program.

Marcel worked in the food service industry for ten years before pursing his passion of carpentry. Marcel became a finish carpenter for Thoughtforms Corporation in West Acton where he worked for the last twenty years. His proudest accomplishment can be seen in his house in Groton where his home became the ultimate expression of his creativity and talent.

When not working on his house, Marcel could be seen on his Checkmate boat, water skiing, or watching the sunset at the “Fugowie Rock.” On land, he could be found in his garden or cruising around on his BMW bike. He married the love of his life, Linda Gray, in March of 2001.

Along with his wife Linda, he is survived by his mother Yvette Gervais of Rhode Island; two sisters, Rachel Boisvert of Greenville, Rhode Island and Diane Hall of Brooklyn, Connecticut; brother Donald Gervais of Florien, Louisiana; his beloved dog, Andre; and many nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
