Higganum Man Completes 5,000 Piece Puzzle During Quarantine

By Kathy Brown.

Leo Sirois, age 81, of Higganum loves doing jigsaw puzzles, and usually has a 1,000-piece puzzle in progress most of the year. When he and his wife, Claudette, would go to meals at the Haddam Senior Center, he would work on the one there as well.

His niece gave him a 5,040 piece puzzle of the Sistine Chapel last year for his birthday, and “with the quarantine, he felt it was a good time to do it,” said Claudette. Leo had to purchase a board first because “no table was big enough to hold it.” The finished puzzle is 40″ x 60″!

Leo started the puzzle March 20, 2020 and just completed it on July 6.
