Joseph A. St. Germain

March 26, 1932 ~ January 22, 2021 (age 88)

Tribute

Yesterday was time to say goodbye to my father, Joseph A. St. Germain.

He was a hardworking, honest, and decent man who lived a long, full life. Married seventy years to my mother, his beautiful wife who he met as a teen, he knew they were destined to be together at first sight. He had four children, six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

A US Navy veteran, he had a long career as a police officer in Lawrence, the city of his birth and which defined his character. My father lived a full life, one in which he experienced many successes in life but also grieved through many losses.

From him I learned the importance of character, pride, the value of a job well done, integrity, decency, and dedication. Through good and bad, I knew he was on my side. We were lucky to have him for so long, and life will not be the same without him.

It was one heck of a ride, Joseph Arthur St. Germain. I don't know what happens after we leave this life, but I know you will live on in the hearts of countless people who were touched by your example, courage, and strength. I have always been proud to be your son. I love you, Dad.
