Haverhill - John Randall, 78, of Haverhill, died peacefully at his home on January 13, 2021. Born in Bridgeport, Conn., son of the late Maurice and Evelyn (Poirier) Randall, he was raised and educated in Madison, Maine. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1964, serving as a Specialist 4, and was a recipient of the Expert Badge for rifles. He was honorably discharged in 1966 and transferred to the Army Reserves until his final discharge in 1970. John was employed as a dairy farm laborer for much of his work life at several farms, including Meredith Farm and Alfalfa Farm in Topsfield, and Woodsom Farm in Amesbury. Eventually, he established a landscaping business with his partner to form John's Landscaping and was involved in that business until his retirement. John enjoyed being part of a large group of friends and spending lots of his time outdoors. He looked forward to attending the Fryeburg Fair and other New England fairs every year. He was very self-sufficient and was always able to figure out how to get things done. His favorite saying in life was, "Up and around and able to take nourishment." John was predeceased in 2020 by his longtime, loving partner Laurie Kotis and was also predeceased by his grandson, David N. Houghton, who died in 2016. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by a son and daughter-in-law, Mark J. and Amy Randall of Seabrook, N.H.; a daughter, Stacy Randall of Fremont; granddaughters, Sophia D. Randall of Seabrook and Blythe Denoncour of Epping; and a great-granddaughter, Brynleigh Denoncour of Epping. He is also survived by Laurie's children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, Tammy L. Malone and husband Paul, Robert F. DeCoito, Tina M. O'Connor and husband Patrick, Tanya Elliott-Hannon and significant other Joseph Hannon and Theresa D.

North Andover - Eugene J. Reilly, age 99, passed away peacefully on January 7, 2021. Gene is survived by his loving wife Anthea Reilly; sons Eugene, Christopher, Michael and Brendan and their wives and partners Judy, Judi, Diane and Christine; along with grandchildren, Sarah, Shannon, Colin, Christina, Christopher, Erin, Patrick and Nolan. Gene was predeceased by his first wife, Ann and siblings Brendan, Elizabeth (Moynahan) and Kevin. Eugene James Reilly was born in Boston, Mass., on July 23, 1921, to Eugene E. and Mary E. (McNeese) Reilly and raised in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston. He took advantage of being brought up in a house full of books and a city with extraordinary educational institutions. Gene graduated from Boston Latin School and Harvard College (AB Economics 1942) where he was the University Middleweight Boxing Champion and an ROTC Field Artillery officer. After being commissioned as a 2nd Lt., he shipped to Morocco in November of 1942 to join the 3rd Infantry Division as part of the western task force (G.S. Patton commanding) of Operation Torch. From there he traveled across North Africa, through the Italian Peninsula and into France over the next 3 years: transferred to 13th Field Artillery Brigade as assistant S2 and Jr. Aide de camp for the Sicilian campaign; landed with 13th FA at Salerno to take part in the Italian campaign; landed in Cavalaire-Sur-Mer in Southern France as part of Operation Dragoon in August of 1944. Gene's fluency in French made him a valuable Aide de camp while in the French theater and he spent the remainder of the war there and in Germany. WWII distinctions and awards include four amphibious landings, nine battle stars and a French Croix De Guerre, among others. Gene entered the road construction business upon returning home, became President of the Rock Asphalt Corporation (Boston, Mass.) at the age of 29 and founded Merrimack Paving Corporation (Groveland, Mass.) in 1957. He ran the business prosperously with his partner Jimmy Grimes until selling it to Trimount Bituminous Products in 1979, and then worked another 13 years for Trimount running their recycling division. Gene served on numerous industry boards and committees over the years and was President of the Massachusetts Bituminous Concrete Association (later MAAPA/CIM). He was a corporator of the Institution for Savings and the Anna Jacques Hospital in Newburyport, Mass., and a longtime member of the Fortnightly Club. In 1960, Gene and his first wife Ann purchased a home in West Newbury, Mass. His boys were all brought up in this home and this community, of which he was a part for over 30 years. Gene was an active alumni and supporter of Harvard College after the war, eventually chairing five reunions, chairman of the entertainment committee and director of the Harvard Club of Boston. Working three jobs at a time while attending Harvard still didn't cover his $600 annual tuition, but the college lent him the balance due and he never forgot this. Gene's experience in France during the war led to a lifelong love of French language, food and wine which he indulged as often as he could, including several memorable trips to France in recent years with Anthea. Words cannot express how we will miss his wit, charm, wisdom, candor and extraordinary mastery of the English language. The family will be organizing a private virtual ceremony and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Boston Latin School Annual Fund in memory of Eugene J. Reilly, class of 1938, www.bls.org, or Anna Jacques Hospital Community Health Foundation in memory of Gene, www.ajh.org. A virtual memorial will be held in February
