Bennington Banner (VT) - October 15, 2005

Deceased Name: Paul Joseph Bellemare

EAGLE BRIDGE, N.Y. -- Paul Joseph Bellemare, 81, of Eagle Bridge, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2005, after a brief illness. He was the beloved husband of Marion Thompson Bellemare.

Born April 4, 1924, in Troy, he was the son of Paul T. and Clairina Boutin Bellemare. The family moved to Bennington when Paul was 1 year old. He graduated from Bennington High School, class of 1942, and then served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

He was a tool maker at the Watervliet Arsenal; a self-employed furniture upholsterer in Cambridge; drove school bus for Cambridge Central School; was a part time mail carrier and worked at the family furniture store in Bennington.

In 1973 the Bellemares moved to Connecticut where Paul worked as a toolmaker for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft. After his retirement, they returned to White Creek.

Paul dedicated his life to serving the Lord. He was one of the founding members of the Gospel Lighthouse Church in 1961 and was active in the Fishers of Men, a Christ-centered service organization. He used his vocal talent singing duets with his wife and belonged to a gospel quartet that sang in nursing homes.

Paul and Marion had two children, Sharon Ann and David Paul, who died in infancy.

Besides his wife of 56 years, he is survived by three children, Michael and his wife Marilyn of Pawlet, Vt., Joyce of Rhode Island, and David J. and his wife Debra of Connecticut; two brothers of Bennington, Louis and Bernard Bellemare; seven grandchildren, Kristian, Terence, Timothy, Kimberly, Karin, Michelle and Andrew; two great-grandsons; and several nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews. Friends and relatives are invited to call on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2005, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main St., Cambridge.

The funeral service will be held on Monday, Oct. 17, at 10 a.m. at the Gospel Lighthouse Church, Turnpike Road, Cambridge with Brother Marlon Galimore, pastor, ministering.
