Plaistow, NH - Gerard LaRoche, 65, of Plaistow, NH, passed away unexpectedly, but surrounded by his loved ones on June 11, 2019.

Gerard was born in North Andover on November 10, 1953, son Roger and Claire LaRoche. He grew up one of eight children in the Ward Hill part of Haverhill. For many years he was employed by Eastern Tank / Eastern Technology working his way up from welding to a production manager. There he met his wife of 29 years, Pamela (Simonds) LaRoche. His last Job was working with a Harnum Industries branch setting up their cable spool rewinding company for the telecom industries.

He leaves behind a tremendous hole in the hearts of his loving wife Pamela, son Shawn, daughter Hannah, who was the pride and joy of his life, along with his siblings Roger, Linda, Annette, Dennis, Freddy, Micky, and Michelle.

He was lovingly known by friends and family as the "G-Man". Gerard will be remembered for being the LIFE of the party. When he walked in with his cowboy hat and contagious smile, you knew a karaoke song of Frank Sinatra or Keith Urban was soon to follow.

Those lucky enough to have tried some of G-Man's home cooking know he knew his way around the kitchen, and if after a friendly game of pool you felt you had been hustled, you were! He was a spectacle to watch on the golf course but could match up against any of his brothers in their "Roger's Golf League".

He will be fondly remembered as a man who spoke his mind, treasured his family, valued all his friendships, and LOVED unconditionally.

We welcome any and all who wish to join us in Celebrating Gerard's Life on Friday, June 14, in the Driscoll Funeral Home, 309 So. Main Street, Haverhill from 4 to 8 p.m. Period of reflection will begin by 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please join our Walk for PKD (Team G-man) or donate at For guestbook, visit
