Patrick David Vachon, age 67; husband of Darlene S Vachon of Gilford, NH left this Earth on June 8, 2019 after a brief battle with Kidney Cancer. He passed at Lakes Region General Hospital with his family by his side.

Patrick was born on June 14,1951 in Beloit, WI to his late parents Peter Vachon and Pauline Des Jardins.
Pat spent most of his adult life in the Recycling business first in MA at BFI and upon coming to NH went to work for Lakes Region Disposal/Waste Management as a Maintenance Manager. Then, running the Gilmanton Transfer Station till he retired in 2000.

Patrick married Darlene S. Elliott in September 1991 and made their home in Gilford, NH. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, cousin, friend and for the last eleven years, grandpa.
Pat had his ways and could always be heard to say, " It's my way or the highway", usually his way was right. He loved to hunt, deep sea fish, the ocean, climbing lighthouses, and watching the fishing boats down at Rye Harbor. He loved talking sports; Patriots were his favorite team. Sport card collecting was his hobby never trading any. The best thing Pat loved was spending time with his family and friends having cookouts and sitting in his screen house watching the traffic go by. He will be deeply missed and remembered for his love of life, his laugh and his sense of humor.

In addition to his wife he leaves behind his children; Andrea M. Vachon, Benjamin D. Vachon and his wife Janet, Aaron L. Hussey and his wife Jennifer, Germaine L. Elliott and her husband Shane Kabilian. Two siblings Paul Vachon, Pamela and her husband Wayne Pratt. Two Grandsons Cole and Brayden with a 3rd on the way, Quinn. Two Nephews Jason and Peter, 4 Nieces Charisse, Michelle, Renee and Lori, also an 11yr old SharPei Milo.

Besides his parents Pat was predeceased by his brother Peter Vachon.

Pat's family would like to express their deep gratitude to Drs. Milchev and Marshall, the ER, ICU, SSU and Oncology staff at Lakes Region General Hospital for their many acts of kindness and support during his illness.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date as an informal cookout was Patrick’s wish to share all those memories.
