Lucien G. Thivierge, 90, of Manchester, CT, husband of 50 years of the late Rolande (Gagnon) Thivierge passed away peacefully with his family by his side on January 2, 2020 at Riverside Health and Rehabilitation Center, E. Hartford, CT. Lucien was born May 30, 1929 to his parents Alcide Thivierge and Bernadette (Hamel) Thivierge in Lac Megantic, Quebec, Canada.
As a devoted family man, Lucien moved his family to the United States in 1968 in order to provide them with a better life. He became a United States Citizen in 2002 and his family followed shortly thereafter. He worked for Klock Company in Manchester, CT for over 30 years, where he eventually retired. He was a hard worker and always provided for his family. After his retirement, he became a “babysitter” for his grandchildren, which he spoiled dearly by taking them after school to the Blue Duck store for candy bars. He was a dad that was always there for his children and grandchildren. He was a man of faith and regularly attended church, up until his last days. He enjoyed word search puzzles, watching Wheel of Fortune, Price is Rite and Jeopardy, painting, playing BINGO, taking trips to Canada to visit his extended family, and he enjoyed watching Hockey, especially when the Montreal Canadians were playing. He will be greatly missed by all of us.
Along with his wife and parents, Lucien was predeceased by his siblings: Jean Denis Thivierge, Paul Emile Thivierge and Estelle (Thivierge) Jacques, and his son Mario Thivierge. He is survived by his children Sylvie (Thivierge) Peowski of Manchester, CT, Andre Thivierge and wife Nancy of New Port Richey, Florida, Nicole (Thivierge) Libbey and husband Arthur of Manchester, CT, seven grandchildren Danielle (Thivierge) Belair of Florida, Laura (Peowski) Horn and husband Benjamin of Glastonbury, CT, Katelyn Peowski of Hartford, CT, Sara Peowski of Manchester, CT, Matthew Thivierge of Manchester, CT, Andrew Thivierge of Manchester, CT and Jacob Thivierge of New Britain, CT, three great-grandchildren, Briahna Belair, Blake Belair and Evan Horn as well as three step grand-children and two step great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Alzheimer’s Association, act.alz.org/donate.
