1927-2013 NORTH ADAMS Mr. Wallace Euclid Joseph Caron, formerly of 1585 Massachusetts Ave. North Adams, Mass. peacefully departed this life on January 16, 2013 at Berkshire Medical Center following a brief illness.

He was born in North Adams, Mass. on Aug. 4, 1927, the son of Patrolman Simeon Caron and Aldea "Della" (Perrault) Caron. He attended the former Holy Family School.

He leaves his legal guardian, Richard Noel, his wife, Arlene, and their children, Bryan and Alexander. Other survivors include several cousins including Ruth Cunningham, of North Adams.

His sister, Constance M. Caron, RN, died February 3, 2003.

Wally will be sadly missed by those who provided him with care during the years following the death of his sister, Connie, especially Kelly, Bonnie, Sandy, David, Jack, Latasha, and the staff of Nonotuck Resource Associates, especially Keri and Maggy. Without their love and care, Wally's life would not have been complete.

Wally was a wonderful person who truly enjoyed life. He could brighten up any room with his smile and friendly ways. Wally suffered a traumatic brain injury during infancy, but this handicap never prevented him from living a full and meaningful life.

Wally loved to travel and see new sights. Wally loved to go out riding in the car. Wally looked forward to his summer vacations with Rick and his family. Whether travelling to Maine, New Hampshire, Cape Cod, or Lake George, Wally always enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a family vacation.
