Jeremy Scott Plourde


Gilmanton- Jeremy Scott Plourde, 42 passed away peacefully at home in his wife’s arms following a long battle with cancer on Thursday May 11, 2017. Born October 10, 1974 in Laconia, NH.


He was a lifelong resident of Gilmanton, NH. Attending Gilmanton school, and graduating Gilford high school in 1993.  Jeremy was employed at Hannaford for over 25 years holding many positions at several stores, but most recently as the Produce Manager at the Meredith NH store.


All who knew Jeremy enjoyed his sense of humor and kind heart. The joy he brought to all will be greatly missed.


Jeremy is survived by his wife of 20 years, but partners for many more, Rebecca “Becky” Plourde, sons Jordon 22, Parker 19, Griffin 14 and Cooper 6. He lived and cared for his family till the end.


Jeremy enjoyed family time most. The family was often found on the slopes of Gunstock, ripping it up. Jeremy loved riding his motorcycle and fixing up his many great finds which included boats, bicycles and other free or nearly free treasures. Above all else Jeremy always made sure that his wife Becky had no wish left ungranted.


He learned to appreciate city living with his son Jordon. Parker taught him that with a boo stick you could grow up to be a brave man. Griffin showed him that you can tell a good story with a lot of singing. With Cooper the steps with Lego builds are just an option to get to the destination. His family showed him that with fun and chaos comes great men.


He was the son of Gary Plourde and the late Valerie Plourde, brother of Jason Plourde and uncle to Zachary Plourde. Jeremy was a brother in law to Norma & Kasey Kortz and uncle to Kaeden Kortz.


Jeremy was predeceased by his grandfathers Robert Begin and Alphonse Plourde and his “moms” Valerie Plourde and Becky’s mother Judith Bordeau


A Celebration of Jeremys life was held at the Gilford Community Church, 19 Potter Hill Road Gilford NH on Saturday May 20, 2017.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Bank of New Hampshire, 62 Pleasant St Laconia NH 03246. Checks made payable to Norma Kortz with Plourde Family Fund on the memo line.
