James Gadbois, 95, of Plymouth, formerly of Dorchester, passed away peacefully at home on June 25, 2017. He was the husband of the late Catherine Veronica (Bonanno) Gadbois for 51 years, and of the late Barbara Jean (Reardon) Gadbois for 11years. Mr. Gadbois was born in Fall River on September 20, 1921, the son of Joseph and Stella (Brophy) Gadbois.

During his whole working life, he took on part time jobs on Saturday to save for his children's education. He was completely dedicated to his family and a true credit to the "Greatest Generation." His efforts to be there and do anything for his children and grandchildren, were the focal point of his life. He also enjoyed creating furniture in his cellar workshop and was a voracious reader. Mr. Gadbois has two sons, James J. Gadbois and his wife Patricia of Plymouth, and Robert J. Gadbois and his wife Maureen of Abington, six grandchildren: James Gadbois of Billerica; Michelle Auguste of Duxbury; John Gadbois, Erin Gadbois, and Donna Gadbois, all of Abington, and the late Robert J.
