Raymond R. Caron of Salem, MA, passed away on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, peacefully, of natural causes. Born on September 26, 1929, in Salem, Raymond was the son of the late Arthur and Ida (Lacombe) Caron.
Mr. Caron was retired early on due to his challenge with Macular Degeneration, but always kept busy working on his home. People may remember him sitting in the sun as they pass by, always greeted with a wave and a smile.
Many knew him as Bob or Itchy and his close friends called him Mr. Vandoodle. Bob committed many years volunteering for the Veterans with meals and Holiday happenings. Some got to see him in his Santa suit during the Christmas Holidays. He always loved playing with the little ones and entertaining whether singing at social events, the Counsel on Aging or dancing up a storm at parties. His favorite pass-time was playing cards with a good friend. To Bob, heaven was a day in the sun, sitting at the Willows beach or in his yard with a container full of watermelon.
Bob leaves his son, Ronald Caron and his family, his daughter, Lisa Waleyko with her family, three grandchildren, Nicole, Melanie, and Brandon; and extended family Richard and James Akatyszewski along with their families.
Funeral Service will be held at the Parish of the Resurrection Church, 449 Broad Street, Nashua, NH on Tuesday, April 12th at 11 AM. For those who cannot attend, there will be a livestream available at www. parishoftheresurrection.org. Arrangements entrusted to the care of ROCHETTE FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES, 21 Kinsley Street, Nashua.
