Obituary for Roger J. Gallipo

Roger Gallipo, 87, of East Windsor, beloved husband of Pauline Gallipo, entered into Eternal Rest on Monday, September 16, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital. Son of the late Oscar and Cora (Leblanc) Gallipo , he was born on May 26, 1932. Roger attended schools in Canada. Upon his return to the United States, he enlisted in in the United States Army and was a decorated veteran of the Korean War. As an autobody shop manager, he was highly respected in his profession, and served on the advisory committee of Porter and Chester Institute. As a lover of the outdoors, he was a 53 year member of the Broad Brook Angling Club, the Moose Club, and the American Legion.
Roger was a hardworking man of many talents who excelled at fixing anything around the house, and enjoyed working on cars, and taking trips up north. He will be remembered for his sharing of stories with family and friends, singing of French songs at Christmas time, and the ever present twinkle in his eye.
In addition to his loving wife Pauline, Roger is survived by his children, Ken Gallipo and his wife Alice, Cyndy Wilson, and Danielle Greenwood and her companion Ian Tingey; his grandchildren, Cassie Wilson, Ashlee Wilson, Lisa Gallipo, Garret Gallipo, and Cameron Greenwood; his great grandchildren, Tyler, Kori, and Taylor, his sister, May Gallipo, his daughter-in-law, Laurie Gallipo, his former sons-in-law, Mike Wilson, and Scott Greenwood, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by his son, Guy Gallipo.
Roger’s family will receive relatives and friends on Thursday, September 19 from 5 to 8 pm at the Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring Street, Windsor Locks. A procession will gather at the funeral home at 9 am for a Mass of Christian Burial to be celebrated at 10 am on Friday September 20, 2019 at St. Mary Church, 42 Spring St., Windsor Locks.
