Jack R. L'Hommedieu, 76


Georgetown — Born December 1, 1935 in Chester, Pa. to the late Josephine (Irons) and Raymond W. L’Hommedieu, he died September 27, after a brief illness.

A 1957 and 1961 graduate of MIT, Jack was educated as a mechanical engineer, but he was so much more, a true “Jack of all trades”. Over the years he worked as a carpenter, fisherman, lobsterman, and general handyman. His love of the outdoors guided his life and he always worked with a smile. He loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, whom he treasured.

Jack leaves his devoted wife of 53 years, Cathy; his loving daughters Susanne Stuart and her husband Ken, and Nancy Gallagher and her husband John; and his adoring grandchildren John, Patrick, Thomas and Keely Gallagher, and Heather Stuart.
