Alan Pelletier, age 76 of Taunton, passed away on January 1, 2024 at Morton Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Marie (Perry) Pelletier. Alan was born and raised in Taunton, a son of the late Manuel Medeiros and Mary Louise (Dwyer) Pelletier Medeiros, Alan was employed as a driver for the United Parcel Service for 25 years. His route was in the Whittenton area of Taunton and you could find him daily having lunch with Marie in the parking lot of the laundromat on Whittenton Street. Alan enjoyed playing golf at the Parker Course with friends in the nice weather after his retirement in 2006. Alan shined as a husband, father and grandfather. He was the perfect role model of how a man should treat his family and others. He modeled respect, love, kindness and most of all patience every day through everything he did. Alan enjoyed spending time with Marie, it was rare to see one without the other. They were true partners in life. They demonstrated respect and love for each other every day for 53 years. You could find them having breakfast at local spots, driving around to sports and taking off wherever they liked every day. He would always say “we don’t need vacations, we do whatever we want every day . They were always together and he was so happy with his life with Marie and his family. Alan was there for all of Jada and Jazzy’s cheerleading events, school events, dances, graduations, and all life moments. He loved watching Deon play baseball, football and soccer and spent Sundays watching NFL with him arguing over plays. He instilled his love of football in Deon who will hopefully become just like him. He spent many days watching Haylie at concerts, visits to work and shopping at the mall. He learned about games from Jackson and any interests he enjoyed. He was always there, always supportive and always teaching them. He was there for all the everyday little things that are the big things in life. His two daughters grew up knowing love, respect, kindness and support. He never missed an opportunity to help them and was there through thick and thin. He was the one that could handle all the difficult things in life and guide others through them. He was absolutely adored by his family. Alan loved his Taunton Community and was always getting involved to make a difference in others lives and experiences. He coached hockey at the boys and girls club, played on local softball teams and he served as the Taunton Housing Commissioner for over 25 years. This was a position he held dearly to his heart. He served on the board to revitalize the old Fairfax Gardens (Dewert Ave) , the neighborhood he grew up in and loved. He was integral in its development and he was so proud of the outcome. Alan could be heard telling stories of growing up in Dewert with his many siblings and the sense of family and community he had all those years. He wanted that for everyone living in Taunton. He was a true Tauntonian. Alan was that man, that guy, the one that never spoke a negative word about others, the one that would remain calm, he would treat everyone with respect and always see the good in people. He was great at having conversations about world events, politics and anything going on in sports. He was always teaching others, resolving problems and learning new things. He made a positive impact in the lives of others around him. Besides his beloved wife Marie of over 53 years, Alan is survived by his loving daughters, Julie Pelletier of Taunton. Rachel Darling and her husband Nicholas of Natick. He was the grandfather of Jasmine, Deon, Haylie and Jackson and was the grandfather of the late Jada Marie Martins. Alan was the brother of Rosalie Curry, Florence Collins, Sandra Gagnon, Wilfred Pelletier, Arthur Pelletier, Louise Pelletier Teixeira, Norman Pelletier, James Medeiros, Sheryl Corey, Dennis Medeiros, Jeanne Medeiros, Robert Medeiros and the late Patricia Reed, and the late Gemma Pelletier among many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends that are family. The world was a better place with Alan in it, he was everything to his family and friends and he will be missed forever.
