Lucien R. McDonald, 76, of Marlborough

Obit Lucien McDonaldMarlborough – Lucien R. McDonald, 76, of Marlborough, died Friday, July 4, 2014 after a long period of failing health.

Born in West Dudley, he was the son of the late Wilfrid and Annette (Bousquet) McDonald and was one of 12 children.

“Lou” was the loving husband of Rosemary (Borden) McDonald for 54 years and devoted father of Matthew McDonald and his fiancée Robin Scott of Upton, Andrew McDonald and his wife Sharon of Marlborough, and former daughter-in-law Jody Gledhill and her husband Rick of Marlborough. He was also the cherished “Grandpa” of Jeffrey and his wife Jayme, and Sean, Erin, Emily, and Charlie.

He was as a member of the United States Navy and a veteran of the Korean War, earning the rank of Petty Officer First Class as an Electricians Mate. He also served in the Seabees.

Lou was a licensed electrician and worked for Raytheon and then Polaroid Corporation. In later years, he was employed as the electrician for the city of Marlborough.

He enjoyed bowling and horseshoes in the company of his many friends at the Marlborough VFW and Moose Lodge, where Lucky Lou won more than his share of “meat & turkey shoot” events. He will be fondly remembered as a talented banjo and harmonica player and he will always have a special place in all of our hearts.

A private family celebration will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of the William R. Short and Son Funeral Home (www.shortfuneral.com).
