Jeannot F. Dionne
Jeannot F. Dionne, 76, of Plainville, CT, loving husband of Jeannine G. (Lavoie) Dionne, died at Hospital of Central Connecticut on Monday, February 13, 2017 after a long and hard fought battle with COPD. Jeannot was born in New Brunswick, Canada to the late Paul and Edmee (Desjardins) Dionne. He retired in 1999 from General Motors after a 30 year career and was an active member of the General Motors Retirees Union. In his retirement, Jeannot was the ultimate handyman. He enjoyed doing special projects around the house for family and friends. There wasn't a project too difficult for him to take on. He always figured out how to build or install almost anything- he was a typical Frenchman. He enjoyed walking, playing cards and also participated in the Silver Sneakers program. But lately his favorite past-time was posting jokes and messages on Facebook. We will forever miss his fun Facebook posts! In addition to his wife, Jeannot is survived by his daughter Elizabeth Dionne Beldin, of Florida, son's - Paul Dionne, of Broad Brook, Peter and wife Staci Dionne, of Bristol, Cory Dionne, of Meriden; step-daughters, Lynn Ouellete, of Bristol, and Lisa Lavoie and Carole Oat of Farmington; grandchildren, Patricia, Krista, Nolan, Nicole, Douglas, Christian and Haley; great grandchildren, Ethan, Elijah, Izaiah and Alivia and especially his "Mon-Ami" Demetrius; four brothers and four sisters-in-law, Norbert Dionne, of Bristol, Leonard and Geatone Dionne, of Bristol, Jean-Marie and Noella Dionne, of Bristol, Joe and Diane Dionne, of Florida, and Jeannine Dionne of Bristol; four sisters and two brothers-in-law, Bernadatte Dube, of New Brunswick, Canada, Jeanna Dionne, of Florida, Marie-Ange and Emile Beaudoin, of Quebec, Canada, Mariette and Geaton Lefrancois, of New Brunswick, Canada, and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and brother, Wilbrod Dionne.
