Tribute & Message From The Family

Lionel M. LeSieur, 69, passed away on March 6, 2020. Born in Manchester, NH on March 17, 1950, he was a son of the late Maurice and Therese (Bilodeau) LeSieur.

Lionel spent most of his life in the Manchester area. He was a graduate of Bishop Bradley High School and attended the University of New Hampshire. Lionel's career was spent in grocery management and car sales. Later in life, he lived in the Augusta, ME area where he worked in hardware stores and enjoyed a peaceful rural life setting. He then spent six years in Tucson, AZ where he was a proud member of the management team at Tucson's Gospel Rescue Mission before retiring back in New Hampshire. Lionel enjoyed time spent with family, and some of his fondest memories involve the time he spent involved in Goffstown Little League when his sons were younger. He took pride in being involved with their teams as a coach as well as one year as league president. Lionel also loved skiing. He taught both of his sons and together they spent many winter weekends skiing the mountains of New England throughout their childhood.

Lionel leaves behind his sons, Steven LeSieur and his life partner, Nicole Marie of Los Angeles, CA and Jeffrey LeSieur and his wife Catrien of Goffstown, NH; his sisters, Denise Bernatchez and her husband Hank of Nashua, NH and Claudette Comer of Manchester, NH; as well as his grandson, Evan LeSieur; and many nieces, nephews and extended family members. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his siblings, Normand LeSieur and Lucille St. Onge.

Services to be scheduled for a later date.
