David P. Gadbois, 75, of Northborough

Obit David GadboisNorthborough – Attorney David P. Gadbois, 75, of Northborough, formerly of Marlborough, died Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015 in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his family.

Born June 14, 1940 in Marlborough, David was the son of the late Romeo and Gabrielle Gelinas Gadbois. After graduating from St. Michael’s College in Winooski, Vt., he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army and served in Germany during the Vietnam War. Following his discharge in 1966 as a First Lieutenant, he attended Suffolk University Law School in Boston, started his own law practice in Marlborough, and selflessly served his family, community and country for over half a century.

David fervently loved to fish, hunt, golf, ski, garden, and travel; however, he received his greatest fulfillment in life by leading, providing for and spending time with his family and friends. He made profound and lasting impacts in the people he touched and mentored throughout his life.

He is survived by his loving bride of 48 years, Virginia Collins Gadbois; his son, Derek Edward Gadbois and his wife Paula of Charlton; his daughter, Nicole Gadbois Fulton and her husband Harry of Fairfax Station, Va.; his three brothers, Edgar, Donald and Edward; and six grandchildren.

A memorial service celebrating his life and legacy will be held Saturday, Sept. 12, at 10 a.m., at Grace Baptist Church, 353 River Rd., Hudson. Arrangements are under the direction of the Slattery Funeral Home of Marlborough (www.slatteryfuneralhome.com).

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Boys and Girls Clubs of MetroWest, 169 Pleasant St., Marlborough, MA 01752 (www.bgcmetrowest.org).
