Obituary for Paul E. LeClair

February 11, 1957 - April 22, 2016
Gilford, New Hampshire | Age 59


Paul Edward LeClair, 59, of Gilford, NH passed away at home on Friday, April 22, 2016 following a courageous battle with sarcoma. He was surrounded by the love of his family through his final hours.
Paul was born in Portsmouth, VA on February 11, 1957 to Peter E. LeClair II and Joyce (Nutsford) and was raised in the Manchester, NH area. Upon graduation from college, Paul embarked on a successful and rewarding 30-year career with Bard Electrophysiology, a division of C.R. Bard, Inc. Through his work, Paul was given the opportunity to travel. He understood the value of such a gift and took full advantage of it; traveling all over the globe, exploring different cultures and communities, and experiencing everything the world had to offer. He shared his love for travel with family through their numerous family vacations.
Paul adored his wife Lauren and two daughters, Brittany and Courtney and made certain to show them they were his world. Paul and Lauren's deep love for one another was evident as they exhibited the true and lasting values of a strong and beautiful marriage. He cherished the many friendships he made throughout his journey and appreciated how each person he met enriched his life, but perhaps one of his liveliest companions was his always-energetic Great Dane, Kona, and his only male ally in the house. Paul also loved lake life with family and friends on his boat at Lake Winnipesaukee.
Paul is survived by his beloved wife of 28 years, Lauren (Pallotto) LeClair. Paul also leaves behind his treasured daughters, Brittany and Courtney LeClair; his father- and mother-in-law, Norman and Barbara Pallotto; and many loving extended family members. In addition to his parents, Paul was predeceased by his only sibling, his brother, Peter E. LeClair III.
