Obituary for Joseph R. F. Roux, Sr.

Joseph  R. F.  Roux, Sr.
WELLS, ME. Joseph Roland Francis Roux Sr, 82, of Wells, died Saturday, August 26, 2017 at his residence after a period of failing health.

Joseph was born November 5, 1934 in Barre VT, and attended schools in Barre and South Berwick. With his sharp mind, he grew bored with school, so he entered the US Navy reserves when they didn’t check his birthdate too closely, and soon thereafter enlisted in the Navy.

His schooling in the Navy centered on communications, and he learned morse code as part of that training. Joe served on fast attack submarines, and his service included tours during the Vietnam War. Following his retirement after 20 plus years in the Navy, he settled in Wells, began his time with the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, working as a communication electrician, retiring from the yard in the mid-1980’s.

He is a lifetime member of the AmVets and V.F.W. in Sanford.

Joe is predeceased by his first wife Edna Mae Murby Roux in 1979, his second wife Cecile Houle Roux in 2015,a son Joseph Jr in 1984 and two sisters Elaine Vary and Joyce Corliss.

Survivors include his son David Roux of Jensen Beach, FL, a daughter Donna Rose of Sanford, stepchildren Thomas Brouchu of Sanford, Rachel Webber of Wells and Michelle Wilson of Georgia, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

A Graveside service with military honors will be held 11 AM Saturday, September 2, 2017 at Calvary Cemetery, Portsmouth, NH.
