Obituary for Joseph H. LaPierre Jr.

Joseph H. LaPierre, Jr., 77, lifelong resident of Windsor Locks, beloved husband of 50 years to the late Isabella “Betty” (Ruggiero) LaPierre, was reunited with his wife in heaven on August 16, 2020. He was born on October 22, 1942; son of the late Joseph H. LaPierre, Sr. and Jean Duval LaPierre. He grew up in the Warehouse Point section of East Windsor and attended local schools. At the age of 16, Joe knew he had a future as an Electrician. He completed his apprenticeship and worked for many local contractors including P.J. Lodola & Sons, there he met many of his workers who to this day have remained his dear friends. Dreams of owning his own company finally became a reality in October of 1977 when he and his wife with money saved for their summer vacation opened J. H. LaPierre Jr. & Sons Electrical Contractors. Joe’s legacy of Quality Workmanship and Honesty lives on today as his son Joey, carries on the family business. Joe was a member of the Windsor Locks Volunteer Fire Department for many years where he rose through the officer’s ranks and finally with a very experienced and knowledgeable officer’s staff,he led the Department as Chief for five years from 1987-1992.
