Wayne Landry, 52, passed away on March 1, 2019, in a room crowded with tearful friends and loved ones. Among those present were: his life partner Susan Gay (Westminster, VT,) son Adam Landry (Charlestown, NH,) mother Barbara Hill and stepfather Fred Hill (Springfield VT,) brother Keith Landry (Charlestown NH,) Uncle Brien and Aunt Kathy Ravlin (Springfield VT,) Uncle Robert and Aunt Lisa Goodrich (Springfield VT,) Uncle Robert and Aunt Sherry Ravlin, Uncle Michael Ravlin, Aunt Lee Lloyd, Cousin Jim Ravlin (Chester, VT) ,and Barrett Rasmussen (Charlestown NH.) The last thing he saw was their love.
Wayne graduated from Fall Mountain High School in 1984, where he
starred on the State Championship soccer team. He was a hard-working and
appreciated employee of Readex in Chester VT. He enjoyed coaching
soccer at Green Mountain High School.
Wayne’s previous marriage to Paulette Tanguay produced a son, Adam Landry. Wayne was dad, pal, teacher and more to his son.
To the rest of the world, Wayne was “a great guy.” Everyone he knew said so. There was always a family member or friend who needed his help or his truck,and they counted on him to come over every time. He smiled easily and often, and could laugh a the same joke a thousand times. His tastes were simply and deeply enjoyed: his family and friends, his motorcycle, classic TV comedies, classic rock and country music, hunting, fishing, car racing, picnics at Echo Lake and his mother’s cooking,
Life got harder in a hurry and Wayne learned the bitter truth about
alcohol. He tried hard to find his footing through Turning Points of
Springfield. Wayne enjoyed the love he needed late in life.
But he will be most remembered as a good guy by so many. Awards,
titles and accomplishments can be slowly earned, but to be a “good guy”
you have to do so every day, to everyone you meet. No one heard angry
words or refusals from Wayne; they remember him as caring, helping.
Being a “good guy” is an enormous tribute that he earned his whole life.
There will be a Celebration of His Life on Saturday, March 9, at the Charlestown Senior Center from 2 to 4 PM. In lieu of flowers (which would only have made him laugh,) his family requests donations to Turning Point of Springfield VT.
The Stringer Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
