Michael Richard Pelletier, 73, of Hudson, NH passed away Saturday morning, February 10th, 2018 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on December 29, 1944 in Nashua, NH to the late Aurore (Soucy) and Roland E. Pelletier. Michael was raised in Hudson, NH and was a life-long resident.

Michael went on to work in construction and was self-employed for many years. In his retirement, he spent much time in Florida, where he enjoyed developing a sense of home in his community and making new friends.

Michael was a family man and made sure to always provide for his family. He enjoyed golfing, spending time in the outdoors, and watching racing. He especially loved to spend time with his grandchildren; he always loved being there to play with them, cook with them, and attended every one of their activities to support them.

Carten, and Caleb Carten; siblings, Roland and Sharrel Pelletier, Linda & Ricky Nixon, Sandra Pelletier, Sue and Randy Turmel, and Norman and Elaine Pelletier; as well as nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Michael was one of the most honest people we've ever met. Sincerety, kindness, helpful , gentleman, true to himself and to all....just a few words to describe Mike. Knowing that he went through this last battle with faith in God, has increased our faith.As said as we are not to have him here anymore, we know that he shared his gifts with so many, that the ripples extend to the ocean of heaven. Truly a pleasure to have known him. Blessings to his family.

To the Pelletier Family. I took care of Michael and Judy’s home in Florida for many years. Was such a pleasure to meet two really genuine people. Michael was the real thing. Loving , caring person with a great sense of humor. Never , ever did him say a negative word about another person. So sad to lose him.

Mike was a special guy. My daughter and Lesa and Missy grew up together and I have many fond memories of Mike and Judy. They filled the air with family love and even now with my infrequent chance meeting with Mike our conversations always turned to "how are the kids/grandkids doing". My deepest sympathies to Lesa, Missy and Karina and their families You have great memories of family love and generosity. They are gifts. Keep them in a special place.

We are so sorry to lose a dear friend and neighbor in Indianwood. He had a heart of gold and would never hesitate to help anyone in need. He was always a gentleman with a loving heart and a positive attitude. We will all miss you. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family .

Jackie & Gord Hobbs said : Guest Report Feb 13, 2018 at 7:59 AM

It is with great sadness that we learned of Mike’s passing. He was one of our favourite Indianwood characters. Mike was the epitome of a true gentleman and Family man who had the biggest of hearts. Some of our favourite memories were our little chats on the porch where Mike shared stories of his family and grandkids (he loved those football games). We will hold those memories forever in our hearts. We know there is nothing we can say to make your loss any easier, but may it be of some comfort to know that people truly loved and respected Mike. Hugs

To the family of Mr. Michael, (that’s what I called him) I just want you to know that I was the luckiest guy to have worked with him for so many years, learned from him for so many years, and laughed with him for so many years. Michael was an amazing friend, contractor, and mentor to me for many years....... a quality person that is impossible to replace. I will miss him very much. Mark Padfield NH Blacktop Sealers

To the Pelletier family please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences on Mike's passing. He was a special "down to earth man", so pleasant and outgoing. It was always fun to run into to him, as he would always take the time to talk with me. Rest in peace dear Mike, and Godspeed until we met again.

Shane said : Guest Report Feb 11, 2018 at 10:48 PM

I remember being in Florida as a child and shortly after waking one morning, I walked out of the bedroom and said, "Uncle Mike, what are you doing here?" Everyone had a good laugh....I was actually looking at my father who had just shaved off his beard earlier that morning. Similiar to your physical resemblance, I always felt a love from you very similar to that of my father's. You treated me as a son and I felt that. I respected that. And I love you for that. I'm glad you're free Uncle. Hit em long and straight up there and give Aunt Judy, Mem, Pep and all our loved ones a huge hug for us. Love you big time

My grandfather was always wise and smart. Taught me how to be a gentleman and how to clean dishes after you make a mess. He’s always told me he’s loved me and my family and he was the best grandfather in the world and he’s in a happier place and he’s found my grandmother again. Love you pep Nolan
