Obituary for Jean-Paul Chabot

Jean-Paul  Chabot
Jean-Paul Chabot, 85, of Hampden, passed away peacefully Sunday September 17, 2017 at his home surrounded by his forever loving family. Jean-Paul, son of the late Philippe and Yvonne (Larochelle) Chabot was born in Saint-Charles-de-Bellechasse, Quebec, Canada on November 17, 1931. Raised and educated in Saint-Charles, Quebec, he had his eyes on one woman and one woman only, the beautiful Dorothy J. (Bilodeau) Chabot. The married couple moved to the United States where he worked for various construction companies until he went into business for himself, giving his name when he founded Chabot Concrete and Trucking Co., Inc, now 59 years in business and still going strong. He worked and raised a family while residing in Springfield for 47 years and most recently a resident of Hampden for 15 years. Jean-Paul was a former member of the Elks Lodge #61 of Springfield and a dedicated member of the Deputy Sheriff of Hampden County. He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson motorcycles and taking trips to the casino and although he was retired, his interest and passion for business never diminished. He lived everyday with a smile on his face while admiring all of his accomplishments that he had every right to be proud of, all while showing his family and friends an abundance of love; a man with a huge heart and so much more love to give. In addition to his parents, Jean-Paul was predeceased by his wife of 64 years, Dorothy J. (Bilodeau) Chabot on January 2, 2016 and his brother Roger Chabot. He is survived by his children, Claude P. Chabot of Hampden, Gary A. Chabot and his wife Cheryl of Springfield, Linda R. Chabot of Hampden and Thomas A. Chabot and his wife Carrie of Ludlow; six grandchildren, Jesse Chabot and his wife Trish, Daniel Chabot and his wife Danielle, Chantal and her husband James Marchese, Jessica Merrill, Derrick Merrill and Brianna Chabot; 3 great granddaughters, Sophia, Mia and Vivienne. In addition, he is also survived by his siblings, Raymonde’ and her husband Richard Couture, Jeanne and her husband Andre’ Carrier, Rene Chabot and his wife Norma, Lorraine and her husband Gerard Sampson, Dennis Chabot and his wife France and Eloise and her husband Sonny Anderson; along with many nieces and nephews and his dog Mack, “a man’s best friend”, all of whom he loved, cherished and adored very much. The entire surviving family would like to thank Mercy Hospital, Weldon Rehab and Mercy Hospice for their tender love and care that they provided to Jean-Paul. A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be held SAT 10 AM at St. Patrick’s Church, 1900 Allen St., Spfld. Burial will be at the convenience of the family.
