Obituary for Adelard J. "Dizzy" Gagnon

Adelard “Dizzy” “Al” Gagnon, beloved husband to Aileen Gagnon of Somersville, entered into Eternal Rest on Thursday, March 7, 2019, peacefully with his nephew, Paul Gagnon, by his side. Adelard was born on December 16, 1922, the son to the late Alfred and Jennie (Surprenant) Gagnon. Adelard was a lifelong resident of Somers, living the past 65 years in the home that he built with his own hands. He proudly served our country in the United States Merchant Marines where he was part of the crew in the engine room on the ship. During his time in the service he crossed the North Atlantic in convoys delivering munitions to Scotland as well as going to the Mediterranean many times. After his time in the Merchant Marines, he went to work for Pratt and Whitney. He was a very skilled machinist and retired from Delta Industries after more than ten years of dedicated work. Adelard was a longtime communicant of All Saints Church in Somersville. He was an avid fan of the Red Sox and the UCONN Women's Basketball team. He enjoyed gardening and growing many different flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Adelard loved driving and was always up for taking a road trip. He loved long drives and was proud of his cross-country drive to visit his grandson in California when he was 80 years old. His greatest joy in life was his family. He absolutely loved spending time with his girls and his grandchildren. He will be remembered as a dedicated and loving husband, father, and grandfather. In addition to his wife of 74 years, Aileen, Adelard is survived by his three daughters, Sandi Smith and her husband, Jay of Wallingford, Lydia White of Rindge, NH, and Judy Crane of Somers, CT; four grandchildren, Jeffrey White and his wife, Jenna, Valerie Taylor and her husband, Eric, Christopher Dionne and his wife, Jessica, and Edward White; five great grandchildren, Ashley, Casey, Grace, Rose, and Nate; one great-great grandchild, Cayne; Harold Crane and many nieces and nephews. Adelard was predeceased by several brothers and sisters and a son-in-law, Gerald White. Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for calling hours on Friday, March 15, 2019 from 4:00 - 7:00 pm at Somers Funeral Home, 354 Main St., Somers, CT 06071. A procession will gather at the funeral home on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 9:00 am. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:00 am at All Saints Church, 25 School Street, Somersville, CT 06072. Burial will follow at Somers Center Cemetery.

I was very sad to hear of his passing. I always remember how fun he was, and how much he loved to drive. I really enjoyed the visits when Chris and I were in college. I'm thinking of everyone and sending my love during this time. Love, Joe Butler

Dear Mrs. G, Sandi, Lydia and Judy, I was so sad to hear of Mr. G’s passing. So many wonderful childhood memories with Sandi and you all, but the most prominent one is going down your front hill, across the road and almost down to the river on a toboggan. The trip back up was gruesome but there was Mr. G with hot chocolate for all of us. Such fun! My thoughts and prayers are with you folks at this. Patty Paterwic Claffey
