Vincent D. Leger

Vincent "Vince" Donald Leger, 83, of Winchendon, died peacefully Tuesday, May 24, 2022, in Gardner Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Gardner, with his family by his side. 

Born in Ste. Marie de Kent, NB, on November 13, 1938, he was the son of the late Edward and Anne Marie Cormier.  Following his mother's passing in 1947, he was adopted by Francis and Emilda (Leclair) Leger and raised in Fitchburg.  He graduated from St. Bernard's High School with the Class of 1957 and in 1959 he received an Associate of Science Degree in Boston. Vince was a United States Army Veteran serving from 1959 to 1962, where he received the Good Conduct Medal.  Vince was a real estate broker and the owner of Vince Leger Realty in San Diego County until his retirement.  

Vince was a parishioner of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church of Winchendon. He was a member of the Gardner Lodge of Elks, Gardner Fish and Gun Club, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars of Winchendon. Vince enjoyed playing golf and tennis, as well as Senior League Softball. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hiking, fishing, and camping. Vince's greatest joy was his family, always treasuring the special moments they had together.

Vince is survived by his wife of 23-years, Dorilla "Dori" (Cormier) Allain Leger of Winchendon; a daughter, Carolyn Leger Nye of Pine Valley, CA; a stepson, David Allain and his wife Ann of Leominster; two grandchildren, Cristen and Mychal Boerman; two step-grandchildren, Michael Allain and Jennifer Tisdale; step great-grandchild, Daphne Allain; two sisters, Gloria Richard and her husband Omer of Gardner, and Marie Packard and her husband Charles of Ashburnham; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was predeceased by his first wife, Esther (Campell) Leger, who died in 1997; two brothers, Norman Cormier and Gerald "Gerry" Leger; and two sisters, Bernice Racette and Doris Collette.

Special memories during our snowbirds days in AZ. Always enjoyed not only dominos but fun discussion about anything & everything.

Dori and Family
We are so sorry to hear of Vince's passing! We have the best memories of you both from Gold Canyon. Playing dominoes every season with you and Camy and Ron. You'd be happy to know, Vince, that we are still playing together and often remember you as a beloved fellow player, either as an opponent or as a canny member of the "boys" team!
