He enlisted September 25, 1863, in company M, 1st Vermont volunteer regiment, heavy artillery, and was promoted to corporal soon after for good conduct and bravery in battle. He received his discharge October 28, 1864, and since that time had been employed as a stationary engineer. He was well known in this city and was a member of Roberts post, G.A.R., and St. John the Baptist society.
Besides his wife, Mr. Lorette leaves eight children, Wilfred P., Prosper, Misses Anna and Leona Lorette and Mrs. Robert S. Russell all of this city, George H. Lorette, Adolphus R. Lorette and Mrs. Casper B.
