Obituary

COHOES Gerard W. Davignon, 91, of Carleton Ave. died Friday, July 19, 2019 at Samaritan Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born in Attleboro, MA he was the son of the late Harvey and Marie Bilodeau Davignon.

He was communicant of the Church of the Holy Trinity, a member of the Cohoes Knights of Columbus, and a charter member of the K of C in Fairbanks, AK. He was also a member of the American Legion in Cohoes.

In his free time Gerry loved reading and researching. He would then go collecting and search for his hidden treasures. He will be most remembered for his creativity, selflessness and being everybody’s favorite… Favorite Grandpa, Favorite Uncle and Favorite Friend.
