    There’s a newpaper entry of what seems to be his parents marriage on

    It lists a marriage of Patricia Guithard and Paul Albert Levesque on 18 April 1964, in Nashua, NH, US.

    His parents are listed as Paul and Patricia Levesque, which would be a suitable match and this record, if accepted, would give his maternal grandmother as Loretta (or Loretla) Guithard.
