Napoleon was born April 28,1932 in St Louis de Kent New Brunswick Canada. He became a proud Citizen of the United States in 1967. He worked as lumberjack and cook at a lumber camp in Maine before moving to Leominster where he met his wife and raised their family. He enjoyed his golden years in Westford before finally moving to River Court Residences in Groton with his wife. Napoleon worked at the General Motors plant in Framingham as an assembler, welder, and driver (perfect job for a car lover) for 23 years until his retirement.
