Obituary for Jean-Denis Nadeau

Indio, California ~ Family patriarch Jean-Denis Nadeau passed from this life peacefully in the comfort of his home in Indio, California, on June 5, 2013. He was 87 years old. Jean-Denis was born July 12, 1925, in St-Frédéric de Beauce, Québec, Canada, the son of Donat and Simone Nadeau. He received his education at École Technique for welding, then was employed as a welder at Anglo Paper Company and Lauzon Shipyard, Québec. Later, Jean-Denis moved to Rumford, Maine and continued his career as a welder at the Oxford Paper Company. Jean-Denis joined the U.S. Army near the end of World War II and served as a military policeman during the Occupation of Germany from 1945 to 1946. Upon his return, he married Gloria R. Coté, of Mexico, Maine. Jean-Denis and Gloria were married for 43 years, until her death in 1989. Jean-Denis became a citizen of the United States in 1950. He would go on to have a long career with the International Paper Company, where he advanced to Mechanical Engineer and, finally, to Pulp Mill Piping Supervisor in Jay, Maine. After retiring in 1985 he established his own company J & D Consulting. He also served as Commander of the VFW ME Post 3335 in Jay in the 1995-1996. He founded the color guard which qualified for national competition in their second year. After retiring from International Paper and residing in Maine, Jean-Denis moved to Indio, California with his daughter, Suzan. He was preceded in death by his father, Donat, mother Simone, step-mother Clemence, brother Pepsi, wife, Gloria R, and son Dennis Ray. He is survived by daughters Sharon Nadeau and Suzan Marshall.
