Obituary

Laurie J. Drisdelle, 90, of Rocky Hill and formerly Wethersfield, passed away April 17, 2019 at home, surrounded by his family. He was the devoted husband of Fernande (Leger) with whom he shared over 62 years of marriage. He was born in St. Paul, New Brunswick, Canada, son of the late John and Josephine (Gallant) Drisdelle and immigrated to the United States in 1955. A skilled carpenter and craftsman, Laurie founded Drisdelle Builders and built custom homes in the Wethersfield area for over 30 years. He was a faithful parishioner of the Church of the Incarnation. After his retirement, he and Fern loved to spend summers at their second home in New Brunswick. Laurie was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He will always be remembered for his witty sense of humor and the incredible grace he showed in accepting his illness.

Besides his wife, he leaves his son, Ronald Drisdelle and his wife Vicky (Marx) of Rocky Hill and his daughters, Denise Hallisey and her husband Michael of Wethersfield, Gisele Molloy and her husband Brendan of Lutz, FL and Carmen Gorton and her husband Gregory of Stratford. Laurie will also be remembered by his 13 grandchildren, Nathaniel, Justin and Christopher Drisdelle; Michael, Ryan, David and Patrick Hallisey; Bryant, Cameron, Connor and Aaron Molloy; and Stephen and Monica Gorton. He also leaves his sister, Maria (Donald) Riccardi of Topsfield, MA, and his sisters-in-law Dorine, Anita, Bernadette (Richard) and Therese of New Brunswick, Canada, and many nieces and nephews in the United States and Canada. He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters, Emery, Willie, Lionel and Gerald Drisdelle, Lorraine Hebert and Imelda Maillet. Laurie’s family would like to extend their sincere thanks to his home care providers, Donna, Krystyna and Stanley, and Vitas Hospice. Their loving and compassionate care made it possible for Laurie to stay at home during the last years of his illness.
