LACONIA – Roger L. Marceau Jr., 64, of Weirs Beach, died suddenly on Monday, August 3, 2020, at Lakes Region General Hospital.
Roger was born in Laconia, NH, on March 20, 1956, to the late Roger and Marjorie Marceau.
A lifelong resident of Laconia, Roger graduated from Laconia High School before attending Lakes Region Community College and Plymouth State College. Roger served as a Captain for the Laconia (Weirs Beach) Call Fire Department, as well as a fire dispatcher for Lakes Region Mutual Aid.
