Patrick W. Vaillancourt

Patrick W. Vaillancourt, 26 of Harwich, joined our heavenly father on May 6, 2017 (after succumbing to a tragic car accident).


            Born in Peterborough, N.H., February 7, 1991, to Edward Vaillancourt and Jan Hopkins.  Patrick attended the New Ipswich School system.  In his childhood days he enjoyed various activities with his siblings and friends, especially hunting and fishing, a passion which stayed with him into adulthood.


            Patrick was introduced to the field of masonry, working for his brother Chad of CV Masonry of New Ipswich, N.H.  He also worked for Duke Masonry and Salo Masonry, both of New Ipwich, N.H.

            Patrick moved for a time to Colorado to join his brother Christopher and worked alongside him at Columbine Kitchen and Bath under the direction of Richard Keuhster, Christopher’s father-in-law.

            He later relocated to Chatham and began a new adventure working for Chuck Alcott in the construction and home improvement field.


            Patrick enjoyed the ocean, fishing, hunting and the company of his friends around a good bonfire.  Patrick grew to become a man of many talents and was known for his willingness to help anyone when asked.  He will be remembered for his big heart and beautiful smile.

            His niece Ellie was a great part of his life.


            Patrick leaves behind his wife, Ruveena of Harwich, his father Edward Vaillancourt of New Ipswich, N.H., his mother Jan Hopkins of Harwich, his brothers Adam (Annie) Vaillancourt, Chad (Aleyah) Vaillancourt both of New Ipswich, N.H., sisters Melissa (Carl) Johnson of Jaffrey, N.H., Mary Cornish Aho, Gabrielle Bryant and Sara Bryant, all of Harwich, and his sister-in-law Lindsay Aho of Palmer Lake Colo.  He was predeceased by his brother Christopher Aho, in October 2016. He will be greatly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
