CORINTH – Jerry P. Molleur, 69, of Corinth, died August 19, at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative and Hospice Care in Lebanon, N.H. He passed peacefully with his wife and daughter by his side. He courageously battled mantel cell lymphoma and esophageal cancer over the last year.
He was born February 25, 1952, in Norton, to Theresa (passed April 16, 1995) and Paul Molleur (passed February 23, 1990). He graduated Hardwick Academy in 1970, which was the last class to graduate from that high school. He then moved to Leadville, Colo., to work with his brother clearing popular ski trails out west and starting a family, something he was very proud of. He moved back to Vermont and started his own business as a self-employed logger.
He is survived by his wife, Janet Molleur, and Bailey Vail, his daughter Lynne King (Brian) and his three grand-daughters, Felicia King, Caitlyn King and Gabrielle (Gabi) King. His extended family includes Rebecca (Peter), Christina (Zack), Daylan (Heather) and Stephen, and grand-children Roman, Temperance, Adam, David, Liam, Addie and Elizabeth. Also included were his beloved dogs, Tanner, Precious and Sweetie. Their unconditional love got him through some very rough days.
He came from a large Roman Catholic farming family with 14 siblings: Giles Molleur, Pauline Turcotte, Madeline Ducharme, Mutt Molleur, Bob Molleur, Bernard Molleur, Louise Davis, Jack Molleur, Mike Molleur, Dianne Molleur, Helen Lamberton and Dan Molleur. His family meant so much to him and he tried to attend most family gatherings. He really enjoyed catching up and reminiscing about the good times. A special thank you to his close friend Cecil for all of the help provided around the house when dad was too tired or sick to work.
Aside from his parents, he was predeceased by his son David Molleur, daughter Diane Molleur, and his brothers, Marcel and Claude Molleur.
A private celebration of life will be held at a later date at the family’s discretion.
