July 28, 1953 - April 28, 2020
Charles E. Martineau, 66, lifelong resident of Methuen, passed away at home on April 28, 2020 surrounded by his devoted family. Born on July 28, 1953 to the late Gerard and Catherine (Cool) Martineau, he was raised and educated in Methuen, graduating from Tenney High School with the Class of 1971. After high school, Charles worked for many years as a machine operator for Gillette until his retirement. Upon his retirement he took a part time job as a bus driver for Methuen School District. As a man who enjoyed the many simple pleasures of life from collecting coins and pocket watches, being a devout Patriots fan, Charles made a deep and loving impact on all those he loved. From enjoying time on the open road on his motorcycle, tinkering with his 1930 pickup truck, releasing stress at the gun range or doing puzzles, he will always be fondly loved and missed by all. Charles is survived by his beloved bride Sandra V. (Matseas) Martineau of Methuen with whom he celebrated almost five decades of marriage together. He was the dear father to his two daughters; Michelle Regan & her husband Timothy of Derry, NH, and Kathy Martineau & her wife Sondra of Candia, NH. Charles was the proud grandfather to his five grandchildren; Kristy & Timmy Regan, Amara Phelps, and Eryk & Brian Letourneau. He is also survived by his dear sister Donna Blanchette & husband David of Methuen, his brother Ralph Martineau & his wife Lorraine of Sandown, NH, several nieces & nephews and his best friend of nearly sixty years Bill Beaulieu. In addition to his parents, Charles was predeceased by his loving companion of 14 years, his dog Pedi. Visitation for Charles will be held on Sunday, May 3, 2020 from 12-4 PM at the Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home, 233 Lawrence Street, Methuen. Friends and family are cordially invited to attend. All other services for Charles will be privately held.
