Jean Guy Robichaud, 86, of Francestown, NH, passed peacefully at his home on Thursday, May 1, 2020, surrounded by family. He was born July 2, 1933, in St. Felecite Quebec, Canada, to parents Hormidas and Marie Anne (Caron) Robichaud.
As a young man, Jean worked in the lumber industry in Canada. He went on to marry the love of his life Noella on July 19, 1956 and they spent a wonderful 66 years together. Jean was well known in the agricultural field for his ability to grow apples as well as all kinds of vegetables. He was an avid member of the Wilton Lyndeborough Winter Wanderers, a local snowmobile club, and was even a founding member of the work crew that helped maintain the trials. He was an active member of the club from 1970-2016. Jean was a jack of all trades and was a master carpenter. He even built his own house and when the time came, he helped his children build theirs as well. Jean loved his family and anytime they got to spend together. They loved to camp, fish, and he worked with his children on the farm. He was a giving and compassionate man, overall a very devoted husband and father. He will be sincerely missed by everyone who knew him.
