Once their children left the nest, Claude and Liliane made Fryeburg, ME, their new home.  Here in this wonderful small town, he worked until he retired from Dearborn Precision.  Claude enjoyed visiting with many friends all over town, shining his light, and sharing jokes with all.  He thrived on tinkering around their home and eventually took up RVing with his wife during summers in Canada.
Claude is survived by his wife, Liliane.  He was predeceased by his oldest daughter, Johanne (Landry) Casey of CT.  Johanne gifted him with three grandchildren (Annette, Cory, and Nadia) and his only great grandson (Trey).  Claude’s three remaining children survive him:  his only son, Alain Landry of PA, who has three children (David, Brett, and Victoria); daughter, Linda (Landry) Tirone of CT, who has three children (Abigail, John IV, and Josiah); and daughter, Nancy (Landry) Deschaine of CT, who has two children (Marissa and Katlyn).
