Born in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, son of the late Edward and Irene (Boudreau) Arsenault. He was raised in Waltham and was a 1972 graduate of Waltham Vocational High School. He spent most of his time caring for the family home and raising his son Michael along with Cindy. He was a member of the Riverside Gun Club in Hudson for 30 plus years and assisted in the Riverside Junior Rifle program for over 10 years. He was active in Hudson Boy Scouts, Troop 77, as a parent and Committee member.
Roger had many interests throughout his life but fishing on Lake Boon in Hudson was always a special time for him. He loved being outdoors enjoying all nature had to offer. Projects at his home and assisting friends with their home projects was part of Roger’s day to day life. He loved wood working and was always willing to share his talents. His most recent project was assisting his son Michael and daughter-in-law Kaylen with their new home in New Hampshire. Roger left this earth unexpectedly at a young age but leaves behind a legacy of love, devotion, good will and friendship for all those who loved and knew him to cherish.
Relatives and friends are invited to a period of visitation from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturday, May 27, 2023 at Tighe Hamilton Regional Funeral Home, 50 Central Street, Hudson, MA 01749.
