Carl was born on April 27, 1930, in Westport, MA to William O. Dupre and his wife Lily (Erickson) Dupre. He was raised in Middleboro, MA, and graduated from Middleboro High School in 1948. Carl and Gloria were married in 1951 in Bridgewater where they raised their family. He worked for the Bay State Gas company for 35 years, retiring in 1997. “Sonny” was an avid sportsman who loved hunting and fishing and spent many summers boating at the family cottage on Cape Cod - but what he cherished most was the time he spent with his family, particularly with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
