Valdor Caron, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family, on Monday, August 1, 2022.  He was the loving husband of Yvonne (Bonenfant) Caron, with whom he shared over 61 years of marriage.

Born in St. John, ME on May 31, 1937, Valdor was one of nine children to the late Fred and Edna (Charrette) Caron.  Raised and educated in Maine, he moved to Connecticut in 1955, settling in New Britain shortly after his marriage to Yvonne where they have resided for nearly 60 years and were communicants of St. Francis of Assisi Church.   A dedicated family man, whose hard work ethics were ever present, Valdor worked alongside Yvonne at Fafnir Bearing, from where he retired after 38 years, and proudly served in the Connecticut Army National Guard for six years.   They shared a love for the outdoors, as regular campers along the banks of the Connecticut River and, for the past 30 years, at their trailer in the mountains of Vermont, always making it home for their weekly card games with family and friends.   While his Earthly presence will be missed dearly, he leaves many cherished memories of a life well lived.

In addition to his wife, Yvonne, he leaves his daughter, Diane Caron of New Britain; his grandchildren, Chantal (Nicholas) Tetro, Travis (Megan) Caron and Danielle (Andrew) Soneson; his great grandchildren, Tanner, Ryder, Carter, Rylee, Landyn and James.  He also leaves his sister, Edith Ouellette, and many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his son, Daniel V. Caron, his grandson, Brandon D. Caron, his great-grandchildren, Rachel and Skylar, four brothers and three sisters.

The family extends their gratitude to the nurses and staff at the Hospice and VNA of Central Connecticut, especially Tom, Romir, Jeff and Karen, for comfort and care given to Valdor during his final days.

Family and friends may gather on Friday evening, from 5-7 p.m. at Plainville Funeral Home, 81 Broad St, Plainville.  Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at the funeral home, followed by committal services with military honors at St. Joseph Cemetery Bristol.  Valdor may be remembered with contributions to the charity of the donor’s choice.  For online expressions of sympathy, please visit
