Roger F.'s Story
Roger F. Thivierge, longtime resident of Amesbury, died peacefully at his home on Saturday morning, October 14, 2017, surrounded by the love and support of his family.
Born in Salisbury on February 15, 1933, he was the son of the late Gaudias T. and Yvonne A. (Gauthier) Thivierge and had attended schools in Amesbury.
At the outbreak of the Korean War, Roger enlisted in the Army, serving from April 2, 1951 until his honorable discharge on March 11, 1954 with the rank of Corporal and was the recipient of the Army Occupation Medal (Germany) and the National Defense Service Medal.
Having worked in various industries, he took a break to care for his ailing parents. During that time, he filled in as caretaker at Camp Bauercrest in Amesbury, since his father could no longer
fulfill his obligation as caretaker of the camp. For the next thirty plus years, Roger cared for all aspects of Camp Bauercrest, continuing with great pride, in his father’s footsteps.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Beverly A. (Perkins) Thivierge of Amesbury; his son, Mark Thivierge of Brookline; his sister, Christine Weeks, along with numerous nieces and nephews, extended family members and dear friends.
By his request, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923 in appreciation of the truly compassionate care they provided Roger during his declining health. Arrangements were entrusted to Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury.
