Obituary for Walter F Vaillancourt

Walter F. Vaillancourt, 81, longtime resident of Enfield, entered into Eternal Rest on Saturday, September 21, 2019 in Pomona, NJ. He was born and raised in Taunton, MA, the son of the late Walter and Agnes (Hayes) Vaillancourt. Walter was honorably discharged from the US Navy after dedicating six years to serving our country, spending four of those years on the U.S.S. Wasp. He made his home and raised his children in Enfield after marrying the love of his life, Irene (LeBrun) Vaillancourt in 1961. Walter worked in the manufacturing industry with local companies. He was an officer with the Enfield Fish and Game for several years, and enjoyed gardening and working in his yard. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his family as he was a great family man in every sense of the word. In addition to his beloved wife, Irene, he is survived by four children, Mark Vaillancourt and his partner, Christine Kelly of Tolland, Timothy Vaillancourt and his wife, Carol of Colchester, Christopher Vaillancourt of Enfield and Kristen Florian and her husband, Jeff, of Enfield; a sister, Nora Kierys of Florida; five grandchildren, Olivia and Julianna Florian and Leah, Victoria and Luke Vaillancourt; and a great granddaughter, Veronica Carballo. Walter was predeceased by a brother, David Vaillancourt and a sister Alice Dion. Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for calling hours from 4-7 pm on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield, CT 06082.

We are so saddened- Walter was such a great man. He greeted my husband and immediately when we moved in and we loved his generosity and sense of humor. We loved seeing him outside in his garden planting flowers with his wonderful Irene. We feel very special that we got to know such a wonderful man and neighbor.
