Louis Breault – Pawtucket

Louis Breault – Pawtucket

Louis Breault 86, of Pawtucket passed away on Sunday, April 18, 2021, at Hope Hospice and Palliative Care in Providence.

He was the husband of the late Kathryn (O’Brien) Breault. Born in Pawtucket, he was the son of the late Calixte and Germaine (Dufour) Breault. He was a lifelong resident of Pawtucket. He graduated from St. Raphael Academy.

He served his country honorably and faithfully as a member of the United States Air Force.

Mr. Breault was employed as an engineer at the Foxboro Company for 32 years and later at AC Tech until his retirement.

Lou enjoyed camping for many years at Keoka Beach and Bear Mountain in Maine and Fishermen’s Memorial Campground in Narragansett.

Lou was an avid hockey player and was a member of the Pawtucket Old Timers league for many years.

Perhaps his greatest passion however was car racing ... he was a devoted NASCAR fan. He himself raced cars ... who will ever forget the yellow number 23 car.

Lou was also the “crew chief” for his younger brother Ed’s racing team. He and Ed traveled for years at many surrounding racetracks in New England and beyond.

Those who knew Lou remember his ability to fix just about anything except supper. He was a quiet man with a dry sense of humor who will forever be missed.

He leaves his son, Michael D. Breault, of Pawtucket, his daughter, Michelle Campbell, of West Hartford, Conn.; his two sisters, Doris Bernier of Lincoln and Marie Amaral of Florida; his brother Edward Breault of Lincoln; his three grandsons, David Breault, Jacob Campbell and Joshua Campbell; as well as several nieces and nephews. He also leaves his beloved niece, Cynthia Baxter, and her husband, Ted, of Cumberland. He was the brother of the late George Breault.
