Roland R. Menard, 61, of Mattapoisett died July 12, 2021 unexpectedly at home.
Born in New Bedford, son of Roland and Janet (Major) Menard, he was raised in Fairhaven, traveled around the country when young, but lived in Mattapoisett most of his life.
He was a self-employed carpenter for many years. A hard worker, who loved to daydream.
Mr. Menard enjoyed being near the water, fishing, and gardening. He was artistic, creative, and generous of heart. Sensitive and kind, with a feisty fighting spirit. He never stopped trying, he always said “we will always find a way.” He Loved all kinds of animals, each of the seasons, and a prevailing southwest wind. He loved his children most of all.
Survivors include his parents; his 2 sons, Lucas Menard and his wife Nicole Menard of Plymouth and Ross Menard and his wife Lee Menard of Mattapoisett; his former spouse, Lynne Menard; 3 sisters, Kim Menard of New Bedford, Kathy Bergeron of Rochester and Christine Koczera of Fairhaven; his brother, David Menard of Acushnet; 5 grandchildren, Landen, Avah, Lance, Alexandria and Laynah; many nieces and nephews; and his soul-buddy, Syd Lewis of Rochester.
His visiting hours will be held on Saturday, July 15th from 2-4 pm in the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home For Funerals, 50 County Road, Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
