     Gerard "Bill" William Therrien, 70, passed away peacefully and entered God's kingdom on April 7, 2022 at Granite VNA Hospice House in Concord.  Bill was born on April 16, 1951 in St. Albans, Vermont and raised in Franklin, New Hampshire, the son of Gerard J. Therrien and Pauline (Lessor) Therrien. 

    Bill formerly worked at Northeast Electronics, Northern Tel, Cincinnati Time, and Gould Electric. He and his brother, David, also owned and managed properties in the area. 

    Bill had a warm, kind, and generous heart reaching out and giving support and a helping hand to many people in his life without expecting anything in return.  Born with muscular dystrophy, he showed unimaginable strength.  Bill was smart as a whip.  People would reach out to him for advice and knowledge on how to fix just about anything.  He had a constant stream of people coming to him for one thing or another.  Many times, his knowledge surpassed experts in the field.
