Mr. Gadbois was such a kind and caring man giving to others throughout his life. I remember him with the utmost respect and dignity through school, town and church events where he always gave to others. My thoughts are with your family at this time and I hope the memories of him carry you through this time of mourning.

Prayers are with you.

We had the opportunity to work with Mr Gadbois and the entire Salem Congregational Church family with a few community fundraisers. He was always the first to step up, offer his assistance and his kind words of support and love. He was Mr. Salem, and will forever be a part of the towns history, culture and its future!!! He gave so much and we will be forever blessed by his presence in our community and each of our lives.

One of the best men I ever met in my life. Quiet, treated everyone like an equal,never talked down to anyone and a great friend and mentor.

He and Judy represented everything good about family and life. I will miss him. Paul Johnston

As a very young boy,I had the good fortune to meet Stuart Gadbois and when I wouldn't go home he allowed me to work on the farm.
We milked the cows,drove the tractors,hunted woodchucks and cared for the calves. He even let me dig post holes.

To this day these are among my most treasured memories.
I have no doubt that growing up under the influence of Stuart had a significant impact on my life. There could be no better role model.

Thank you Stuart, I will never forget you.
