In Loving Memory of Joseph “Joe”  Gagne

7-31-1944 – 7-10-2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Joe Gagne, a loving husband, devoted father, and cherished member of the community. Joe was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, on July 31st 1944 and his journey in life touched the hearts of all who knew him.

After attending the University of Minnesota, Joe answered the call to serve his country and honorably joined the Navy. He proudly served aboard the attack submarine USS Whale during the late 1960s, embodying the values of honor, duty, and sacrifice. It was during his time in the Navy that he discovered his unwavering love for the sea and where he met the love of his life in Hull, Donna Antoine, of 60 Point Allerton Ave.

Joe and Donna exchanged vows at Saint Ann’s Church in Hull on July 18th 1970, embarking on a journey of love and companionship that would span a lifetime. Together, they were blessed with two sons, Joel and Jason, who became the pride and joy of their lives.

Professionally, Joe excelled as a liquor store manager, dedicating a remarkable 40 years to his craft. For two decades, he served as a beloved manager at Curtis Liquors in Cohasset. His dedication to his work went beyond the realm of business, as he formed meaningful connections with employees and customers alike, becoming a trusted friend and advisor to many.

Outside of work, Joe found joy on the golf course. Golf became a passion that allowed him to unwind, connect with friends, and appreciate the beauty of nature. However, his greatest source of happiness and fulfillment came from the love he shared with his family. He was a loving father, always there to offer guidance, support, and unconditional love to his sons. Joe was also a proud grandfather to six grandchildren – Aryana, Jack, Julian, Tessa, Seamus, and Owen Gagne. 

Joe will forever be remembered for his integrity, kindness, and generosity. His memory will live on through the countless lives he touched, and his legacy will continue to inspire us all. He leaves behind a community that will forever cherish his presence and a family that will continually honor his memory.

In celebration of Joe’s life, a memorial service will be held on July 28th at 10:30 AM at St. Ann’s Church in Hull. We invite all who knew and loved him to join us in honoring and remembering a remarkable man who brightened our lives with his presence.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to, an organization close to Joe’s heart.

Forever in our hearts, Joe will be deeply missed but never forgotten. May his soul find eternal peace.
