William Albert Lagasse, 58, of New Ipswich, NH, unexpectedly died at his home on Thursday, September 29, 2022.
Born in Lowell, MA, he was the son of the late George A. Lagasse and Elizabeth E. Helms Lagasse who preceded him in death in 2019 and 2006, respectively.
In 1982, William graduated from Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford, MA where he studied automotive technology. He was a communicant of St. John the Evangelist Church in Chelmsford. After high school, he served in the United States Air Force. At the time of his passing, he was employed at Salesforce of Woburn, MA.
Those who loved him knew him fondly as “Billy,” a sincere and lighthearted man with a big presence. As the only boy in a house full of sisters, Billy became an adventure-seeker at a young age and never missed an opportunity to try something new and daring. He carried this adventurous spirit throughout his life. As an adult, he loved and anticipated summer trips to Lake Winnipesaukee and winter ski trips all over New England, especially his annual trip to Bolton Valley with friends. Billy was curious and caring, and he enjoyed sharing his passions with others just as much as he enjoyed learning about theirs. As quick with a quip as he was with an offer to lend a hand, Billy will be remembered for both his fun-loving spirit, as well as his kindness.
William is survived by his sisters, Elaine Lagasse and her husband Dermot Burke of Bell, FL, Anne and her husband Brad Morris of Nashua, NH, and Kathleen Lagasse and her partner Andrea Lariviere of Manchester, NH; his nieces Stephanie Morris of Plainfield, CT and Kristen Burke of Austin, TX; and his nephew Kevin Morris of Nashua, NH.
