Preston - Leo Joseph Henault Jr., 82, left this world peacefully at his home March 9, 2021. Leo was born March 30, 1938, in New London, son of Mary Rita Henault and Leo Joseph Henault Sr.

He was a graduate of New London High School and joined the U.S Air Force in 1958. After serving four years with the service, he returned to New London and worked with his father, founder and owner of Thames Roofing and Sheet Metal Company. In 1982 he became part owner of the business, along with his brother and brother-in-law. Eventually he became sole owner of the business and retired at the age of 76.

Leo was an exceptional carpenter and was frequently sought out by family and friends to help with household projects, which he loved to do. He enjoyed being busy and working outdoors doing landscaping and yard work. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world and he loved his cats with all his heart.

He married Patricia Ann Sevieri Aug. 13, 1958, who predeceased him June 11, 2020. Leo is survived by three sons, Leo and wife Debbie Henault of Quaker Hill, Blaine Henault of Rhode Island, and Chad and wife Heather Henault of Griswold; daughter Nadine and husband Mark Wujtewicz of Oakdale; and brother, George and wife Donna Henault of Florida. He is also survived by his eight grandchildren, Riley, Kaylene, Talia, Ariana, Christopher, Kira, Rachael and Andrew; and three great-grandchildren, Arya, Graham and Nova.
