NASHUA, N.H. – Robert Earl “Baron” Bilodeau, 91, formerly of Londonderry, N.H., passed away Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, at the Courville of Nashua, a Nursing and Rehabilitation facility in Nashua, N.H. He was born on Aug. 29, 1930, in Waltham, Mass., and was the son of the late Albert and Louise Priscilla (Bilodeau) Baron. Mr. Bilodeau was adopted by his maternal grandparents, Cléophas and Caroline Jane (Mason) Bilodeau after the death of his parents. He was raised in Lewiston, and moved to Connecticut where he met his wife, Irene “Rita” Teague. They were married in Hartford, Conn., on Aug. 25, 1951. The family lived in Connecticut until 1975 when they relocated to Londonderry, New Hampshire.

Mr. Bilodeau served in the U.S. Navy and did two tours of duty between 1949 and 1953. He served on the USS Rochester and the USS New, a Gearing-class destroyer during the Korean conflict.

Mr. Bilodeau was an active member of St. John Episcopal Church while living in Connecticut and a longtime member of the VFW and the Londonderry Country Club. He loved to play bingo, was an avid bowler and golfer, and sang in a choir both in his youth and at All-American Assisted Living. He was also a devoted Red Sox and Patriots fan, often tuning in to cheer them on to victory. His laugh and his smile were infectious, and his personality was legendary, earning him the nickname of “The Mayor” at All-American Assisted Living.

Members of the family include his daughter Wanda Redfield, and his three sons and their wives, Albert E. and Deborah Bilodeau, Robert B. and Mary-Elizabeth Bilodeau, James E. and Suzanne Bilodeau.
