Narcisse Bedard, the 7th of 16 children of Louis and Exilda Bedard, passed away on May 5, 2023 at the age of 95. In his final months he was being cared for by his wife and children. Narcisse is survived by his wife Darquise and five children; Luc, Gator, Joelle Bedard-Gagnon, Roxanne and Norman, along with thirteen grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
Coming from very humble beginnings Narcisse often spoke of the harsh winters he and his siblings endured having to share boots in order to go out and do their chores. The boy’s chores often involved hunting and fishing, needed to help feed their very large family. Even given these simple early means, he and his brothers and sisters always had very humorous stories to share when they got together later in life.
Early in his career Narcisse worked as a logger and a miner in Canada. He had numerous close calls while working in the mines and decided he wanted better opportunity for himself and a better way of life for his young family, so shortly after his fourth child was born he decided to relocate his family to MA. At the time, Narcisse only had one relative in the US and he only spoke French. Regardless, he courageously made the move. Fortunately, he immediately found work in a plastic factory and within a few years was blessed with an opportunity to work at GM, where he retired after working for 26 years. As an example of his work ethics, at one point in his career at GM he had worked 5 years straight without a sick day.
Narcisse had a genuine passion for the outdoors. Camping, boating, fishing and the simple life of just being outdoors is a passion that he passed down to his children and many extended family members.
Narcisse was a quiet and patient dad. He led by example and freely shared his knowledge of those things he was most passionate about. These things included; hockey, bowling, camping, boating, fishing, horseshoes, woodworking, home projects, etc….
Narcisse lived a long and full life. He will be sorely missed by family and friends…
Services for Narcisse will be held on Saturday June 3,2023 @ 11a.m. in Hillside Cemetery, Townsend , MA and all friends and relatives are welcome to attend.
