Frederick Gallant Jr. Obituary

Frederick M. Gallant, 85, of Center Conway, NH died peacefully surrounded by his family on November 24, 2023. The son of the late Frederick and Evelyn (Bean) Gallant. He was born on November 19, 1938, and grew up in Brentwood, NH. He was a graduate of Austin Cate Academy in Strafford, NH. Fred spent most of his career as a mason and built and restored many fireplaces throughout New England and beyond. He learned his craft from his father and passed it down to his sons. He was an avid collector of baseball cards and spent countless hours looking for treasures whether it was metal detecting, digging for bottles around old foundations or dump picking. He enjoyed many past-times including reading, listening to music, camping, playing cards and watching movies with his family. He also loved traveling with Sharon, and they drove across country, and traveled to Florida. Vermont and Colebrook were some of his favorite places to visit. Family was very important to him and he looked forward to the annual Gallant family reunions. Dad had a zest for life and appreciated the simple things. He loved nothing better than a fresh summertime tomato or a bunch of pickling cukes. He always had a salt shaker nearby. If he had a steak dinner, it was the best steak he'd ever had, time and time again. Surviving members include his wife of over 40 years, Sharon. His children Jeff Gallant (Deb), Chuck Gallant (Taunya), Jennifer Leclerc (Mark), Terri (Rick),Stephanie MacInnis (Jay), and Philip Bernaby (Michelle). His siblings, Cynthia Melton (Gail), Wendy Cuthbertson (Richard), and David Gallant (Sheila). Several grandchildren, Peter Jr., Michael, Samantha, Joshua, Joe, Valerie, Victoria, Hannah, Christina, Lily, and Ivy. Four great grandchildren, Matthew, Lucas, Evelyn and Teddy. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins and many great friends. In addition to his parents, Fred was predeceased by his brother Peter and sister Diane, his son Peter, as well as his favorite buddies Duke 1, Duke 2 and Octi. Fred will be cremated, and the burial will be in the spring of 2024.
