David A. Walsh
1959 – 2012
Woodstock – David A. Walsh, 52, formerly of Blackstone, MA passed away in his sleep early Sunday morning September 23, 2012 with dignity and love at the dream home that he built with his dearest partner of 10 years, Michael A. Fusaro, on Converse Road in Woodstock. He was with his loved ones, including his beloved Irish Terrier, Harry, who completed his family.
Always smiling and kind-hearted, Mr. Walsh enjoyed working as an inspector for Whitcraft Group. In his leisure he was an exceptional gourmet cook and he also had a green thumb. He wrote a gardening column for the Blackstone Enlightener and planted thousands of daffodils at his new home.
Born in Woonsocket, RI, Mr. Walsh was the devoted son of the late Michael J. Walsh, Jr. and the late Yvette D. (Jodoin) Walsh. In addition to his partner, David is survived by his brothers, Thomas A. Walsh and his wife Chantal of Gloucester County,VA, James M. Walsh and his wife Cathy of Mapleville, RI, Kenneth A. Walsh and his wife Sally of Blackstone, MA, and John A. Walsh of Blackstone, MA; his Godmother, Pauline Bibeault of Blackstone, MA; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, the late Michael J. Walsh III and his Godfather, Richard Bibeault.
Calling hours are respectfully omitted. Family and friends are invited to attend his Mass on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 11:00am at Most Holy Trinity Church, 586 Pomfret Road, Pomfret, CT.
