Leo, a New Hampshire resident all of his life, was active in the community as a volunteer through his former affiliation Nashua Center. For many years Mr. Marcotte faithfully assisted at both the Fish Hatchery and the local soup kitchen. His dependability and commitment to service were appreciated by both.
A former resident of Laconia State School, Mr. Marcotte relished the opportunity to contribute and to enjoy opportunities such as traveling to New York City, visiting the coast, museums and trying new hobbies. Never a fan of cold weather, Mr. Marcotte also had the chance to enjoy several winters in Florida with his friend, Lina and her family.
