Alfred Pinsonneault Obituary
Alfred "Al" Pinsonneault

1931-2013 Alfred "Al" Pinsonneault, 81, a resident of Center St. in Bennington, VT passed away Sunday August 25, 2013 at his residence after a long and courageous battle with cancer which he fought with much faith and humor. He was born October 9, 1931 to the late Alfred and Alice (Brien) Pinsonneault. Al lived at the family home on Park Street most of his life. He attended Sacred Heart School and the Old Benn High class of 1949. In his early years he was an avid bowler winning the Vermont State Singles Championship in 1961. He also enjoyed driving, traveling, cooking and eating out. Al was employed for 45 years at the A&P Super Market in Bennington and retired in 1995. In 1963 Al attended a meeting where the need for a town ambulance was discussed. Out of this meeting came the Bennington Rescue Squad and a 50 year career as its one and only treasurer, retiring in August of 2013. In 2012 the squad honored him by dedicating the building in his name. Al was active in his parish, attending the early morning prayer service and serving as an Eucharistic Minister. He enjoyed helping at the many church suppers and breakfasts. His great joy was doing the Thanksgiving Baskets. He also volunteered at the hospital and CLR. Al will be greatly missed by his two sisters Jane and Rita Pinsonneault of Bennington and his loving cat Buster who spent many hours with him when he was ill. He will also be missed by the many cousins and friends he made along life's way. Al was pre-deceased by a brother George Pinsonneault.
