Wallace E.J. Caron, 85

January 16, 2013

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. - Wallace Euclid Joseph Caron, 85, formerly of 1585 Massachusetts Ave., died peacefully on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, following a brief illness.

Born in North Adams on Aug. 4, 1927, the son of North Adams Patrolman Simeon A. Caron and Aldea Marie "Della" Perrault Caron, he attended the former Holy Family School.

Mr. Caron was a communicant of the former Holy Family Church and later the former Our Lady of Mercy Church. He regularly attended the Adult Day Health programs in North Adams and Pittsfield. Until recently, he attended an adult program at Baroco in Pittsfield.

Known as "Wally," he was a wonderful person who truly enjoyed life, said friends and family, and could brighten up any room with his smile and friendly ways. He suffered a traumatic brain injury during infancy, but this handicap never prevented him from living a full and meaningful life. He loved to travel and see new sights, to go out riding in the car and to his summer vacations with his carefiver's family. Whether travelling to Maine, New Hampshire, Cape Cod, or Lake George, He always enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a family vacation.

He leaves his legal guardian, Richard Noel and his wife, Arlene, and their children Bryan and Alexander, and several cousins, including Ruth Cunningham of North Adams.

His sister, Constance M. Caron, died Feb. 3, 2003.

FUNERAL NOTICE - The funeral for Mr. Caron will be Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 10:15 a.m. from Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, West Chapels, 521 West Main St., followed by a Funeral Mass at 11 at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church. Burial will follow in Southview Cemetery.

Calling hours will be from Monday, Jan. 21, from 5 to 7 at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to Adult Day Health, through Elder Services of Berkshire County in care of the funeral home.

Mr. Caron will be sadly missed by those who provided him with care during the years following the death of his sister, Connie, especially Kelly, Bonnie, Sandy, David, Jack, Latasha, and the staff of Nonotuck Resource Associates, especially Keri and Maggy. Without their love and care, his life would not have been complete.
