Fernand "Fern" Pare
Fern Pare relocated from Canada to the United States in 1956 beginning his career as a certified welder for Connecticut Boiler Repair in Hartford where he soon became Vice President due to his motivated work ethic. In 1973, Fern founded All State Boiler Work, a boiler repair and welding service, working out of his modest home in Bristol, CT consisting of only himself and his wife, Pauline, eventually bringing their two sons into the business to help grow the company. By the year 2000 All State had diversified its services changing its name to All State Construction Inc., employing over 100 people and Fern retired leaving the company to his two sons Richard and Pete. Today, Fern continues to do odds and ends around the shop while enjoying his retirement in both Connecticut and Florida.
