Brian L’heureux, 46 of Ipswich MA, passed away unexpectedly of cardiac arrest on February 18, 2023 while at his camp in Ossipee NH.
Brian grew up in Salem, MA graduating from St. Joseph’s School in Salem and Bishop Fenwick High School in 1995. At a young age, Brian developed a healthy obsession for all things trucks and a hobby in tinkering with engines which led him to focus his education and career in the automotive industry. Brian earned his degree and was a proud, successful business owner of Superior Motors in Salem for nearly twenty-five years. Brian had a loyal customer base due to his passion and can-fix approach to life.
Brian had a huge circle of friends including many close friends, as well as a massive extended circle of friends who knew him as a ‘great guy’. He was the friend to call when you needed furniture moved, a tow across the lake or just a cold beer after a tough day. Brian was the friend who was always there for you. Without a moments notice, Brian was at your doorstep – be it a friend, a family member, a stranger, he undoubtedly would be a part of the solution. Everyone needs a Brian in their life.
If you were lucky to know Brian, you were fortunate to be cared-for by Brian. However, there are few people in this world that felt the love that Brian had for his wife and best friend, Rachel (Estrella) L’heureux, of 17 years. Plain and simple Brian adored Rachel. The young couple met as teens at Totem Pole Park on Ossipee Lake and would go on to share their love for one another as well as their love for lake-living with their children Jack (14) and Piper (10). Brian was at his happiest with friends and his family on their pontoon boat at the sandbar or snowmobiling through the snowy trails of New England. Winter camping was easy and fun when you had friends as Brian did. Johnny Camire, Tommy Lewis, Scott Collins, John “Juggie” Wetson and Brandon Alves were a tight crew. They were always laughing, but most importantly, always supporting one another in whatever crazy endeavor they dreamt up. It is no surprise that Brian became involved with preserving New Hampshire’s trail system with Scrub Oak Scramblers, he even helped with fundraising efforts for children with special needs so they too could enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Brian’s focus on helping others saw no limits.
Brian is already so missed, but there is some comfort in knowing that his children, especially Jack, will carry on the always friendly, always helpful demeanor as their Dad did and Piper will continue to shine as Daddy’s little princess.
Brian was the loving son of Bob and Ann Marie L’heureux of Salem, MA. He also leaves behind his sister, Kristen L’heureux , her partner Brian Pinard, nephew Hunter, of Goffstown, NH and his in-laws, Bob and Mary Ann Metz of Derry, NH.
Services for Brian will be delayed to the summer months and a celebration of life will be at the lake.
