Following his retirement, he was an active volunteer at North Adams Regional Hospital for many years. He was a communicant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, where he served as a lector.

He leaves his sister, Nancy Perreault of Hubbardston, and nieces and nephews. His brother, Robert Perreault, predeceased him.

FUNERAL NOTICE — A Liturgy of Christian Burial for Mr. Perreault will be celebrated Thursday, Jan. 9, at 11 a.m. at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church. Burial will be at a later date in St. Cecelia's Cemetery in Leominster.

I never had Mr. Perrealt as a teacher but worked with him at Notre Dame Parish. From the youth group specifically. Sorry for the loss. My brother visited him several times during the year
Sorry for the loss.

Mr. Perrault was engaging with students like few others. He was a great listener and seemed to know nearly every student in my graduating class whether or not he was their teacher (he was not a teacher of mine). He was a rare breed indeed. Sail on Mr. Perrault.

Missoire Perreault was one of my favorite teachers at Drury. I recall his great efforts to teach me french but I was a rebellious teenager and did not appreciate the gift he was to Drury. God bless.
