Leroux, Rene (71) left this life surrounded by love in the arms of his wife Carmelle on November 20, 2012 at his home in Chelmsford.  In 1941 Rene was born to Laurette and Hector Leroux in Chelmsford.  He was a strong warm – hearted giving man, a loving husband, father, Pepere, brother, and friend.
