Jeannot Denis Moreault, age 62, passed away peacefully November 22, 2022 surrounded by friends and family. He was born January 30, 1960 in Notre-Dame-du-Lac.

Jeannot moved to the United States as a young child with his family, growing up in Lawrence, Ma. One of the many things that Jeannot did best, from a young age, was to become the life of the party. He had an infectious way to make the people around him laugh, until they couldn’t laugh anymore. As a young adult, he became well known as a boxer and later became a carpenter. Jeannot would use his skills from boxing to help the people around him feel safe. He would use the skills with carpentry to help anyone who was in need. Money was never the reason he took a job. Jeannot made his purpose to help anyone in need and save them as much money as he could.

Over the years, he spent most of his time playing cards, visiting friends/family and sharing as many meals with people he loved. Jeannot was always looking for opportunities to lend an ear and a helping hand to the people around him. He wasn’t one that held a grudge and he would give his last dollar to anyone that needed it. 

Jeannot’s famous line was, “do you have a dollar?”.

He was a man who had everything he wanted, not because of the material items around him but because of the love that filled his heart. He loved without condition and he lived for the children around him. Whether you were a child, niece, nephew or friend, he loved you like you were his own. When he started having great nieces and nephews and grandkids, he grew into a new purpose. He lived for the children and was always thinking of what he could do for them that would help them for their future. From saving bonds to handing down items that had sentimental value to him, he looked forward to seeing their faces when they got them. 

He was only to be called Papa King. Papa King was a family man with the best intentions. He was very present in the lives of people around him. He had incredible care the last year, even the nurses became family to him. They not only provided Papa King with the best care, but they also checked on him when it was their day off. Papa King impacted all of us and will continue to be a happy memory for generations to come. May we continue to remember the good and treat people exactly how he treated them- valued, loved and irreplaceable.
