George R. Ouellette, 85, of Center Barnstead, NH, passed away April 17, 2015 at Bellamy Fields Health Care Center in Dover, NH after a lengthy period of failing health and Alzheimer’s.

George was born June 5, 1929, the son of Edna Vachon Langlois and Omer Langlois of Newmarket, NH.

George was an avid athlete in his younger days, playing Dover High School basketball (Captain 1947) and baseball, including semi pro sports as well.

George was a very active Catholic attending numerous services in the neighboring communities. He enjoyed living on Suncook Lake in Barnstead with his family.

George was a kind and generous faithful friend to all and will be sorely missed. He was very outgoing and opened up to all; welcoming them and making them feel like part of the family and treating them all the same.

Although George had no birth children of his own, he had many God children.  One of my favorite Christmas memories is going over to Aunt Edna's to look at the rooms full of wrapped presents for all his God children.  George would laugh at my delight looking over the haul.  He was my God father and every year I would look forward to unwrapping his gift because it was always something special.  Rest in peace, George, and I hope you get a special reward in heaven for the joy you gave so many children at Christmas.
