He leaves one son, Gerard “Gerry” Fleury and his wife Kathleen of Pembroke; one daughter, Elizabeth “Lisa” Topalis and her husband David of Salem, IN; 4 grandchildren, Jeffrey Fleury of Henniker, Brianne Shelat and her husband Kamal of Nashua, Peter Fleury and his wife Janine, of Plymouth, MA, and Suzanne Fleury of Greenfield, MA. He is also survived by numerous great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, as well as several cousins.
He was also predeceased by two sisters, Cora Hurd and Annette Belanger, and four brothers, Gene, Steve, Walter and Victor Fleury.
