Leonard A. Doucet, 88, died September 29th at his home in Norton, MA, after a short illness. Mr. Doucet was born on November 6, 1929, in Melrose to John Lawrence Doucet and Elizabeth (Babin) Doucet. He studied part-time in the evenings and achieved an Associate’s degree in Engineering at Northeastern University and went on to make enormously consequential contributions to the medical profession and technology. He married the late Patricia A. (Trundy) Peabody in 1965. He was a ham radio operator, enjoyed photography and all things technological, and worked for Augat Inc. in Attleboro as an inventor in electronics for many years. He was very sociable and made numerous friends who will lament his passing.
His brother, Joseph Doucet, writes this in his memory, “Lenny was always upbeat and fun to be with. He made you feel special. Everyone would question him because he knew a lot about different topics. He will truly be missed.”
