Gustave J. Comeau

Gustave J. Comeau, 94, of Ipswich, died Friday evening, September 28, 2018 at the Twin Oaks Center in Danvers. Born in Ipswich on May 25,1924, he was the son of the late Philip and Mary J. (Robichau) Comeau and the husband of the late Virginia Comeau, with whom he shared forty-seven years of marriage.    

Mr. Comeau was a lifelong resident of Ipswich.  He loved his hometown, and until he had to receive nursing home care, lived in the same home on Pleasant Street all his life.  In his earlier years he worked in leather factories in Peabody, and later spent decades working as a custodian in the Ipswich school system.

After the births of his grandchildren he became known as Papa, a role he cherished.  He will be remembered by his family for his kindness and caring heart.  

He is survived by his stepson Stephen O'Connell and his wife Amy Sweeney, their children Ryan O'Connell and his wife Tyler, Alex Parsons and his wife Rosemarie Calder, all of Ipswich and Liza Parsons of Danvers, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his granddaughter Caitlin Marie O'Connell; his brothers Joseph, John and Camille Comeau, and a sister Martha Hagar.    

The family wishes to thank the staff at the Twin Oaks Center, especially his nurses Cindy and Bonnie, for taking wonderful care of him.  They also wish to express their gratitude to the wonderful people at Care Dimensions.     

Funeral services will be held Friday October 5 at 10 am following an hour of visitation from 9 to 10 in the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich.  Friends and family are respectfully welcomed. Internment will be in the New Highland Cemetery, Ipswich. Memorial contributions in his name may be made to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B102, Danvers, MA 01923.
