PORT ORANGE, Fla. - Jerome Roger Deschambault, 67, of Port Orange, Fla. formerly of Sanford, Maine, passed away unexpectedly on Monday March 24, 2014. Jerome is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Janet Deschambault, his loving daughters and sons-in-law, Michele and Brian Bernier, Nichole and Aaron Tremblay, and Christine and Tim Dabrieo, and his treasured grandchildren, Matthew Bernier, Catherine Bernier, Jordan Tremblay, Brendon Tremblay, Kayla Tremblay, Gavin Dabrieo, Caleb Dabrieo, and Parker Jerome Dabrieo. Jerome is also survived by his four sisters, Claudette Fifield, Priscille Bouthot, Gloria Roy, Nancy Houde, his brother, Dennis Deschambault, and brothers in-law, Richard Roy and Dicky Houde, and several cherished nieces and nephews.
Jerome was born and raised in Biddeford, the son of Jerome and Rolande Deschambault.
He answered the call as a young man to serve his country in the United States Navy, and in the final year of his service, he met the love of his life, Janet Anne Yarborough. With Jan by his side, Jerry worked hard throughout his whole life, with every job serving as an act of devotion to providing for his family. He was loved by everyone who met him.
Jerome served as president of the PTO at St. Thomas school in Sanford, worked with the youth ministry, sang in the choir, created an outreach program for at- risk youth, volunteered at the Camp Waban telethon for children with special-needs, opened his home to everyone who needed one, and received awards for Citizenship (Las Vegas, NV) and Heroism (York, Me.). Jerome died too soon, but his legacy of love will continue to live in the lives that he has touched.
A memorial mass is scheduled for 10:00 a.m.. Friday April 4, 2014 at The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, Maine. Arrangements were made by the Lohman Funeral Home in Daytona. Condolences for the family may be shared at www.lohmanfuneralhomes.com.
