As a business boy, Robert Verreault started a number of enterprises. Among them were selling bleach water and apples. In his late teens, he learned to be a machinist and served as a “Sea Bee” on Iwo Jima. Upon is return to the US in 1946, he launched his dream: to have a business of his own. In 1972, his flourishing Diamond Machine Shop burned to the ground. Robert kept his company in operation using borrowed spaces. “We didn’t renege on a single contract!” Robert was named Maine Small Business Man of the Year in 1975. In 1982, the Maine legislature recognized him for his Business Acumen. Robert married Cécile Rodrigue in 1952 and they raised two daughters. Lisa Verreault Ricker and Mona Verreault Cocciardi.
