Gabriel J. Audette, 69 of Hudson, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at Framingham Union Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Gabriel leaves behind his beloved wife, Carol A. (Roy) Audette.
Gabriel one of nine children, was born on June 30, 1948 in Campbleton, New Brunsiwick, Canada, a son of the late Edgar and Emmertienne ( Robihaud) Audet. Gabriel was raised in Canada until the age of sixteen when he moved to Marlborough, Ma. He worked as builder, starting off with the Carpenter’s Union and eventually starting a construction company with his brother Jean, Audette Brother’s Construction, Inc. Gabriel later moved to Hudson, Ma, where he has resided with Carol for the past eleven years. He enjoyed spending time with his family; taking trips with them back to his homeland in Canada. True to his Canadian roots, he loved hockey, both watching and playing, and he also enjoyed cards, and he especially enjoyed being a stubborn pain in the ass, giving Carol a hard time (at times), but most of all being an amazingly loving and caring husband, father and grandfather for his family.
