Raymond John ("Jack") Lafrinere, III

November 13, 1953 ~ March 22, 2019 (age 65)

Born in Cheboygan Michigan, Jack attended schools in Massachusetts and worked in the Federal Building, in Springfield, Massachusetts, before his retirement. 

Jack loved eagles, blue grass music, his John Deere rider lawn mower, WWF and knew all the wrestlers and their history. He enjoyed attending Native American and Civil War re-enactments and loved to fish, always managing to have luck on his side and invariably catching “the big one”. He was a huge Steelers fan,  much to the dismay of his Patriots fans family.

He adored his grand and great nieces and nephews, and savored a good steak,  well done. He was kind hearted and generous, towards everybody, smiled easily and joked about life. He was predeceased by his loving mother Alice Dutilly.  He will be sadly missed by his brothers and sisters, Shelly Kolb and husband Robert of Wakefield, RI,  Sheryl St. Pierre of Chicopee, MA, Lois Dutilly of Sierra Vista, AZ and Anthony Roda of Springfield, MA. as well as his five nieces and nephews and 14 great nieces and nephews and one great great niece.

Services and burial will be private and a celebration of his life will be held for his family and friends, in July. In memory of his beautiful life, donations would be greatly appreciated to: St. Elizabeth’s Green House, 1 St. Elizabeth Way, East Greenwich, Rhode Island 02818,  where Jack spent his final years and was cared for by a devoted group of professionals, who loved and supported him. Jack was a warmhearted, gentle soul who was loved by all he knew and will therefore live on in the hearts of many.
