Biographical information / Informations biographiques

Ten grandchildren; Daniel, Nicole, Jimmy, Joseph, Frankie, Emily, Brady, Mary, Victoria, and William.1
Mr. Legere spent his childhood years living on North Franklin Street, Lynn. Mr. Legere entered military service in 1944, serving as a Tech Sergeant in France and Germany, with the 875th Ordnance HAM company. Mr. Legere would often speak fondly of his time in the service of his country as his tour took him throughout the European Theatre of Operations. Only recently did he tell his grandchildren of his time spent in the hospital overseas from being wounded on two occasions by German sympathizers. Mr. Legere earned the Army of Occupation Medal, WWII Victory Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal 2nd Award, the Distinguished Unit Award, and member of the 27th Regulating Station of Army European Operations. At the age of 16, Mr. Legere began working at the General Electric Company, Lynn, Massachusetts, where he would retire after 45 years of dedicated service. After returning from the war he became friends with one of the most renowned engineers in the history of aviation, Gerhard Neumann, at GE. Mr. Legere would learn from Mr. Neumann’s leadership skills and advice as he rose to level of Inspector and eventually be responsible for the aircraft engine group of Jet Engine Assembly and Test Facilities. Over those 45 years, Mr. Legere helped dozens of General Electric apprentices further their education and become “engineers” for the company. He would often remark that the General Electric military engines were the best in the world and his aircraft engine group played a vital role in the development of today’s Stealth fighter and the A-10 anti tank plane. Mr. Legere met his wife of 53 years, the former Mary Lucy Delisio, where she worked at Lollipop Lane, in Swampscott. They were married in Holy Family Church on September 12, 1953. Together they built a home in the Swampscott neighborhood of his wife and raised four children, Arthur Frederick “Ricky”, David James, Lisa Marie, and Denise Jean. During his life there, Mr. Legere was a member of the Machon School PTA, the Knights of Columbus, and a Swampscott Town Meeting member. He was an usher for Holy Family Church for over 35 years, as well as serving on many of the parish committees enjoying most of all, working the dice game at the annual Festa Italiana. Mr. Legere coached his sons baseball team, the California Angels, in the mid sixties, winning it all in 1965. After his retirement in 1989, Mr. Legere spent his time between his church duties, cribbage at the Swampscott Senior Center, carpentry and woodworking, gardening, and his greatest pastime, being with his grandchildren. Most recently, he and his wife Mary took the whole family to Disney World, creating memories for their children and grandchildren to enjoy for many years to come.1
