NORTH ATTLEBORO - Louis G. Landry, 85, of North Attleboro, passed away at home on Saturday night, November 26, 2022, surrounded by his beloved wife, Carol (Rusler) Landry and their family.
Born on April 21, 1937 in North Attleboro, MA, he was a loving son of the late Walter and Blanche (Goyette) Landry.
Louis grew up on a farm on Paine Road, caring for animals and tending to the gardens with his brothers and sisters. Louis worked at Texas Instruments as a Forman from 1956-1982. He started his own successful business “All Tool Sharpening” in 1982 working beside his son John. Louis was in the National Guard and had been a member of the Knights of Columbus for many years. He married his sweetheart, Carol, the love of his life, on May 2, 1959. Together they raised six children. Louis followed his dream and retired to New Hampshire with Carol in 2004. He and Carol returned to their hometown last year to be closer to family.
Louis had built a small summer house in New Hampshire in the early 1970’s after his children were all born. It was nestled in the woods in the tiny town of East Washington. Louis and Carol took the family there several times a year to swim, hike and make wonderful memories and our family continues this tradition.
Louis was a true craftsman. In 2003 he helped design and build his retirement home next door to his summer house incorporating a woodworking shop in the basement. He used his woodworking talents to build beautiful furniture for his new home. He also made many beautiful gifts for his children. Louis tapped maple trees and made his own syrup to put over delicious French crepes he had been making almost every Sunday for his family and friends. He was also well known by many for his delicious clam cakes and chowder.
In addition to his beloved wife of 63 years, Carol, he is survived by his daughter Susie Landry (O’Donnell) of North Carolina, his daughter Jean Macomber and her husband Michael of North Carolina, his son John Landry and his wife Michelle (Holmes) of Mississippi, his daughter Christine Fanning (Landry) and her husband Michael of North Attleboro, his daughter Mary Crowley (Landry) and her husband Gary of Plainville, his daughter Patricia Lamarre (Landry) and her husband Steven of North Attleboro. Louis also leaves his fourteen grandchildren: Matthew Macomber, Gary Macomber, Eric O’Donnell, Danielle Erickson, Kristy Pelletier, Joseph O’Donnell, Philip Antosca, John Landry Jr, Michelle Johnson, Thomas Crowley, Jacob Landry, Emily McBeth, Kelsey Silva, and Gabriel Crowley. Louis also leaves his thirteen great-grandchildren.
