Donald R. Lemire, Age 66, passed away suddenly at his home on March 22, 2018. He was the son of late Edgar and Anna (Noonan) Lemire, brother of Edward (Debbie) Lemire and the late Thomas (Sandy) Lemire. A lifelong resident of Cranston, he also leaves behind his niece Jessica (John) Leonard and nephew Braden Lemire. A 1968 graduate of Cranston High School East, Don started a career at Allendale Insurance Company, then for many years worked in the Providence School Department (at Reservoir Avenue School, then Martin Luther King Elementary), retiring in 2013. Don loved his front row/bullpen seats at the Red Sox and enjoyed his many visits to Briggs Beach in Little Compton, but most of all cherished his many long relationships with his core group of best friends (most of which for 50 years). He also valued his many cousins and all the family get-togethers in East Providence, Barrington, and Rehoboth. Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 in the PERRY-McSTAY FUNERAL HOME, 2555 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence from 5-7 with a service to follow at 7 PM. Contributions to the American Diabetes Association in Don’s memory would be appreciated.
