Kerry Jay Comeau
Kerry Jay Comeau passed away peacefully in Dallas March 18 after a courageous fight against long-term illness. The fifth of six children in a military family, he was born May 25, 1955, in New London, Conn., to Benjamin and Lottie Comeau. Kerry graduated from Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Tex., and received a college education at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. He met and, in 1977, married Nancy Jean Fullwood at Camp Crucis in Granbury, which always held a special place in his heart. Together they raised three sons and shared many adventures traveling and camping across the United States.

Kerry was an avid bird hunter and raised and trained many pointers and retrievers. He was a custom home builder and master carpenter who spent his lifetime sharing skills and stories with generations of new carpenters and builders. His unconditional love and willingness to lend a helping hand impacted many lives. He brought out the best in everyone fortunate enough to call him a friend.

Kerry is survived by Nancy Comeau, his wife of 42 years, sons Miles Comeau and wife Isabel, Phillip Comeau and wife Anna, and Richard Comeau and partner Nick Griffin. He will be remembered by many who call him brother, uncle, friend. Celebration of life events will be announced in the coming weeks.

When we think of Kerry, we'll always think of our Thanksgiving week vacations. Hiking, talking and laughing together. He was a special friend and we will miss him. We love you guys and will always be here for the Comeau family if you need us.

Regardless of how terrible he felt, he always had a smile on his face and kind words to say. What an example for all of us. The world needs more Kerry Comeau’s. I’m very privileged to have known him.

Kerry made my life richer with his thoughtfulness, kindness and fun-loving spirit. He surprised my baby daughter with a beautiful rocking horse that he made with his own hands — that’s who he was. Our love goes out to you and the family, Nancy.

Nancy,
It has been so many years since the Fullwood family visited Indiana, you probably do not remember me. May eternal light shine on you and Harry.

I'm so thankful I was able to visit Kerry during few of his hospital stays, spend time with Nancy and meet his sons. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. ❤️

We want you to know we remember Kerry fondly in this life and give thanks that he has surely risen in glory and is resting in peace in the next. We pray for comfort in this separation for all the family and friends who will most certainly miss his generosity and loving spirit until we are all together again someday. Love to Nancy and the family from us.
