March 14, 1969 – May 15, 2019
Marc Anthony Gadbois (Age 50) of Bozrah, entered into eternal life on May 15, 2019.
Marc’s journey started on March 14, 1969, when he was the third son born to his late parents, William and June Carol Gadbois, at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London.
Marc attended and graduated from East Lyme High School (1988). Marc worked at Candy’s Kozy Kitchen where he learned to be a legendary baker.
He was a devoted Catholic and a parishioner of Saint Mathias in East Lyme. Marc was an active member in the Dick Pillar Polkabration Fan Club. Marc spent most evenings listening to Polka music and even had the pleasure of meeting his favorite Polkabration music stars. He also loved listening to Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. Marc enjoyed his country music and loved listening to Kenny Rogers and Alabama. Marc had quite an extensive music collection.
Marc was the biggest fan of the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, New England Patriots and the Boston Celtics. Marc was able to meet his childhood heroes of baseball and hockey. Marc was an avid movie watcher and loved playing video games.
Marc will be most remembered for his warm and caring love for his family and friends. Marc never met a person he didn’t like and those lucky enough to know Marc were equally fond of him. He had a larger than life personality, a great sense of humor and a love for living every day.
Marc is survived and will be sadly missed by his brothers William, Peter and Allan Gadbois. His niece, Gianna Marie and nephews Alexander Ludwig and Matthew Luke Gadbois. Cousins Pamela Buzenski Bobinski, Debra Buzenski Picardi, Clark, Barbara Ann, and Gretchen van der Lyke, Cindy Gadbois and the entire Rivard Family.
Marc is at home and in peace in the loving arms of his beloved Mother, June Carol.
Marc's family would like to express their deepest and sincere gratitude to the Oak Hill staff and U. C. P. for their wonderful care of Marc and for providing many opportunities for the honorary “Mayor” Marc Gadbois to grow and see the world.
Marc’s family would also like to express their deepest gratitude to the many doctors and health care providers who assisted Marc throughout his miraculous journey.
There will be a graveside service at Cedar Grove Cemetery, 638 Broad Street, New London on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.

Marc was larger than life, always smiling and happy. He loved his family deeply. I was blessed to gain him as a brother through my marriage. He was charming , always quick with a hug and kiss. He showered my daughter and son (his niece and nephew) with attention and thoughtful gifts. He loved Elvis and his polkas. He brought great joy to everyone around him. He was devoutly spiritual and his faith sustained him all the way until he left us to be with his mother, father, grandparents and a multitude of other family members. I can clearly hear the Elvis songs and polka music 🎶 from here..dance and laugh away Marc Anthony. You were greatly loved.

Marc and I had a lot of fun. He was a big Elvis fan. He called me Walley and I called him Eddie Haskel. I have not seen Marc since 1997 or so but I will never forget the good times we had listening to the Red Sox or talking about the Leave it To Beaver show. RIP Eddie. I miss you man. My prayers are going out to Eddie and his family.
