Louise Longmore: Everything About Robert Goulet's First Wife

Who is Louise Longmore?

Louise Longmore was the wife of famous American singer and actor Robert Goulet. The couple got married in the year 1956, and the marriage lasted for just seven years before things ended, which was in the year 1963. Louise Longmore and Robert Goulet, during their marriage, gave birth to Nicolette Goulet in 1956, who was famous for being an actress. Only a little information is known regarding Louise Longmore’s personal life as she was not particularly renowned herself, but instead, her ex-husband, with whom her marriage lasted just a few years.

There has yet to be any information regarding Louise Longmore’s career path available to the general public. It is, therefore, still being determined what she did for a living. It is assumed Louise Longmore preferred to keep her life away from the media. However, since her spouse, Robert Goulet, was into the movie and music industry, there is a possibility Louise Longmore’s career revolves around that.

Louise Longmore and Robert Goulet had a daughter together

As discussed earlier, Louise Longmore and her ex-husband, on June 5, 1956, the same year they got married, produced a daughter named Nicolette Goulet. Nicolette was an American TV and musical theatre actress famous for the movies A Walk with Death (1993), As the World Turns (1956), and Ryan’s Hope (1975). She was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

After that, in 1979, Louise Longmore’s daughter played Mary Ryan Fenelli in the television soap opera Ryan’s Hope. She was the fourth performer to take on the role. Nicolette appeared in three more daytime serial dramas: Guiding Light (starring Meredith Reade Bauer from 1987 to 1989) and Search for Tomorrow (starring Kathy Parker Phillips Taper #2 from 1980 to 1982).

She starred in the Off-Off Broadway production Sweet Song of the Trumpets in the two film pictures Whispers of White and Calhoun County. Other roles included those in the musicals I Love My Wife (The Little Theatre on the Square, Sullivan, Illinois) and Romantic Comedy (1982), as well as a 1984 production of Lillian Hellman’s Another Part of the Forest in Baltimore, Maryland.

Less than six months after her father’s passing, on April 17, 2008, Goulet passed away in Las Vegas, Nevada, from breast cancer. She was separated from her spouse, Tim Fowler, whom she had wed on August 30, 1992, at the time of her passing. The three kids she had were Jordan, Solange, and Dee.

Louise Longmore’s ex-husband, Robert Goulet, was an actor and singer

Louise Longmore’s ex-husband, Robert Gérard Goulet, was a French-Canadian singer and actor born in the United States and died in Canada on October 30, 2007. Goulet spent his early years in Canada after being born and reared in Lawrence, Massachusetts, until the age of thirteen. He played the part of Sir Lancelot in the 1960 Broadway musical Camelot, opposite well-known Broadway stars Richard Burton and Julie Andrews. His rendition of “If Ever I Would Leave You” became his signature song, immediately bringing him fame. His Camelot debut launched a career in theatre, film, and record labels.

His career lasted nearly six decades, and he was a Grammy Award winner. He portrayed Brigadoon in a 1966 television adaptation, which took home five Primetime Emmy Awards. He received the 1968 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for the Ottawa-based musical The Happy Time, which followed a French-Canadian family.

Louise Longmore’s ex-husband, Robert Goulet, lived on Haverhill Street in Lawrence, Massachusetts, where he was born. Joseph Georges André Goulet and Jeanette (née Gauthier) had only one son, him. Although his father was an amateur wrestler and vocalist, his parents were employed in the mills. He was descended from the French-Canadian pioneers Zacharie Cloutier and Jacques Goulet, and his parents were French Canadians. Goulet spent his early years in Canada, moving to Girouxville, Alberta, with his mother and sister Claire shortly after the death of his father.

Jordan Gerard and Solange-Louise, Goulet’s two grandkids, were born to his only daughter, Nicolette (who passed away on April 17, 2008), and his first wife, Louise Longmore. Through his second marriage to singer and actress Carol Lawrence, he had two sons: Christopher, born in 1964, and Michael, born in 1966.

He wed writer and artist Vera Novak in 1982. Novak, his manager and business partner, was born in Bitola, Yugoslavia. On Friday, August 8, 2003, he performed a rendition of “God Bless America” after her oath of office as an American citizen in Las Vegas. Goulet lived in Los Angeles and Las Vegas with his wife, Vera.

Along with Alex Trebek and Paul Shaffer, he was inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame in 2006 and was awarded a star. Louise Longmore’s ex-husband Robert Goulet told Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was present at the induction ceremony, “This is great, but what I want is my Canadian citizenship.” Goulet is from Alberta. Until he was told differently late in life, Goulet had always thought he was a citizen of Canada. Shortly after his passing, Goulet filed for and was granted official Canadian citizenship, which the Canadian government had previously authorized.

After being admitted to the hospital in Las Vegas on September 30, 2007, Robert Goulet was given the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a rare disorder that could be lethal and progresses quickly. He was moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on October 13, 2007, after it was concluded that he would not live without an immediate lung transplant. 

Louise Longmore’s ex-husband Robert Goulet, who was 73 years old, passed away from pulmonary fibrosis on October 30, 2007, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center while he was waiting for a lung transplant. On October 31, 2007, he saw theatre marquees dim in New York and cities around North America. In commemoration of Goulet, Las Vegas closed the Las Vegas Strip on November 9, 2007, the day of his funeral. As a farewell, his name was also shown on the marquees of a few locations.
