1955 – 2020

Putnam Lawrence “Larry” D. Lussier, 65, of Farrows St. Putnam, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 23, 2020.  He was the loving husband of 42 years to JoAnn (Brown) Lussier.  Born in Putnam, he was the son of the late Henry and Helen (Morin) Lussier.

In his earlier years Larry worked for Belding Hemmingway in Putnam. When the plant closed, he went to work for Rogers Corporation in East Woodstock where he worked for over 30 years. He was a proud member of the Putnam Fire Department for over 30 years.  Larry’s biggest joy in life was being a “Beepa” to his granddaughters. He had a huge heart and always put everyone’s happiness first.  He loved family vacations, NASCAR, and working in the yard.

In addition to his wife JoAnn, Larry is survived by his son, Captain Justin Lussier and his wife Jenny and their daughter Emma of Putnam; his daughters, Kimberly Lussier of Putnam, Rebecca Lussier, DVM of Plymouth, MA, and Karalee Peach and her significant other, Jon Bastura and her daughter, Madyson Peach of Woodstock; his brother, Robert Lussier, Sr. and his wife Barbara of Putnam; his nephew, Robert Lussier, Jr. and his wife Crissy of Hampton, CT.

As requested by the family, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Gilman Funeral Home & Crematory, 104 Church St, Putnam, CT.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Putnam Fire Department, 189 Church St., Putnam, CT 06260 or to a pet rescue of your choice.

Condolence from Debbie Perkins on March 25th, 2020 7:56 pm

I really cannot believe he is gone. He was a constant part of my life when we were teenagers and then we lost touch. Several yrs. ago we all reconnected on Facebook and when he and JoAnn came to Maine in the fall for their vacation we spent a day together every yr. since. Some people you never forget. Larry you are one of them. Hope you reconnect with my dad up in heaven.
Our thoughts are with you JoAnn and your wonderful family. Hugs love Deb & Mike

Condolence from Anita L Spicer on March 25th, 2020 8:43 pm

Dear Jo, God took a great man to soon. I didn’t want to believe that he was gone. I was talking to a friend of mine just the other day, and I told them that Larry was more like a father to Bobby than his own father was. They agreed. Larry used to take Bobby almost everywhere he went. And you would also go. Do you remember going out tobogganing over to your parents farm. I will never forget any of the great times that you all shared. Thank you for letting me be part of that life.
I Loved Larry, as much as I Love You and your beautiful family . All of my prayers go out to you and your family.
All of my Love, Anita
