OBITUARY

Kenneth Duffy Jacques

20 July , 192828 September , 2019

Kenneth Duffy Jacques, 91, passed away peacefully Saturday, September 28, 2019, with his family by his side. For over 58 years, Kenny was the beloved husband of Christene (Murphy) Jacques who passed away in 2009.

Most fondly referred to as “Papa,“ Kenny will be remembered by his family and friends as an incredibly loving, caring person with an incredible wit and sense of humor.

Ken was raised in Milo, Maine by Frank and Alice Jacques and enjoyed the outdoors with hunting and fishing. Ken served in the Army Air Corps during the WWII era then married the love of his life, Christene, in 1951 and raised his family in North Billerica, MA. Ken had a career as a tractor trailer driver (a “professional road engineer” as he proudly called it), retiring after 30+ years from Teamster Local 25 and was a true “snow bird” spending the winters in Brooksville, Florida and summers at Point Sebago, Maine.

Kenny will be sadly missed by his six children and family, Larry Jacques and his wife Nancy, of Sherman, Texas, Cliff Jacques and his wife Kathy, of Windham, NH, Marjorie O’Connor and her husband Kevin, of Pepperell, MA, Susan O’Donnell and her husband Michael, of Billerica, MA, Cindy Jacques of Nashua, NH and Theresa Albrecht and her husband Thomas, of Hampstead, NH; 17 Grandchildren and 15 Great-Grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild. Kenny will also be missed by the “Murphy Clan”, the Bradeen family of Milo, Maine, his uncle Rusty Lyford, Hollis, NH, and long time friend Gus Palmeri of Billerica.

A visitation will be held on Friday, October 4th from 4-8pm at the Zis-Sweeney & St. Laurent Funeral Home, 26 Kinsley St., Nashua NH. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, October 5, at 11:00 am at St. Andrews Parish, 45 Talbot Ave, Billerica MA.

Words cannot express how much we will miss our Dad. He filled our lives with so much love and laughter. Knowing his long wait to be back with my Mom is over provides great comfort.

He was a great Dad and a good friend to so many.

I'm thankful for the time I got to share with him, especially over the last couple of years. It was a blessing, not an obligation, to be with him watching Red Sox and Game Show Network. Our combined smarts won us so much money, even if no check ever appeared. (Jeopardy, we are still waiting...)

I loved my Dad more than I can express, and thank him for loving me back as much as he did.
