We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Greenfield Location
Donald (Don) L. Plamondon, 79, of Greenfield, MA passed away on Saturday, July 16th. Don was born on December 20, 1942 and following graduation from Greenfield High he enlisted in the Navy to serve his country during the Vietnam War. He fulfilled his service upon the USS Kitty Hawk and was very proud to serve the country he loved so much. He will now be laid to rest and join the love of his life, Janine.
During their time together they shared many interests and had a zest for traveling, playing board games, and sharing their immense love with all those surrounding them. Don was extremely hard working and possessed numerous skills. But two stood out most, those being gardening and sharing stories. He could grow a beautiful garden full of vegetables and loved sharing the fruits of his labor. And the skill he possessed most, and for those of you who knew Don are well aware of, was his love and skill of sharing stories. Like a gunslinger, he always had one in his holster and was quick to share his amazing ability.
He was preceded by his wife and partner in crime, Janine and his brother Wayne.
He is survived by his son David, and his daughter, Denise Devlin and son in-law Scott Devlin. This also includes many others who were very important to Don, those being his sisters Paula, Brenda and Noreen and brother Glen, Janine's daughters Sheila (Michael) and Tammy (Gerald) and grandchildren Catherine, Cameron, Kyle, Mandy, Elisha and Jordyn.
