Windham — Raymond T. “Tom” Michaud, 65, of Windham, N.H., passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, at his home with his family at his side.
Born and educated in Lawrence, Mass., he was the son of Raymond and Rita (Gravison) Michaud. He was a graduate of Lawrence High School, and served in the U.S. Air Force and was honorably discharged.
He worked over 30 years as a telecommunications engineer for Verizon, and in the past few years, had the pleasure to work with his son, Scott, as a CAD engineer at Single Digits. He was an avid golfer, and was passionate about birding and photography. Spending time with his family, grandchildren and friends was a great joy for him.
As a supportive father and friend, he was well loved, and ever ready to share a good time and some laughs. He was talented, intelligent and believed in always doing things right. He worked hard and was always striving to learn more and become a better man. He was very proud of his children and their success in life. His children are likewise proud and grateful for the patient love and support he gave them.
His memory will live on in the minds and hearts of all that had the pleasure of knowing him. He will be truly missed, and his children will continue to strive to make him proud and perpetuate his legacy.
