Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Henry Joseph Arsenault, 72, passed away peacefully at NHC Oakwood on Wednesday, May 23, 2012, after a long illness, surrounded by his loving family.

He was the youngest son of the late Joseph and Delia Arsenault. He was raised in Rumford, Maine, and educated in the Rumford school system. He worked a number of years in the factories until he found his true niche at the Home Depot where he had been employed for the last 14 years helping his customers. His hobbies included fishing and hunting, especially going back to his home in Maine on vacations.

In addition to his parents, three brothers - Norman, Raymond, Alfred - and three sisters - Jeanette Balangie, Rita Shaw and Theresa McDonald - predeceased him.

He is survived by one son, Henry Joseph Arsenault and wife Karen of Lewisburg, and two daughters, Dawn McClure of Lewisburg and Michelle Washburn of Jacksonville, Fla.

Six grandchildren - Shelbi and Christal McClure, Trey Arsenault, Peyton and Jordan Gevedon and Adam Washburn - along with a special caregiver, Barbara Hearn, one brother, Ernie Arsenault of Rumford, Maine, and one sister, Anita McKellick of Springhope, N.C., also survive him.

A memorial service for Mr. Arsenault will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, June 1, at LifeSong Family Church. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.

A spreading of the ashes ceremony will be performed at a later date in Rumford, Maine, a place very special to Henry.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association or the American Cancer Society.
