Our sincere condolences thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Dale W. Gallant on his passing.
Dale W. Gallant was a wonderful man who will be sadly missed here in Somerville.
Dale W. Gallant, 52 of Norwood, MA passed away peacefully on May 9, 2020 surrounded by family. He was born in Somerville and a graduate of Somerville High School. He spent his career working as a service advisor at several different car dealerships.
Dale was a kind, patient, loyal, and forgiving man who always found the best in people. He was quick to help out anyone in need. His hobbies included cars, guns, electronics, technology, food, music, the ocean and traveling. He spent many vacations in Prince Edward Island with family and Aruba with friends. He had a passion for the sport of hockey. An avid Bruins fan who watched from home, attended games at the Garden, and traveled to away games with family and friends that were his family. He was his wife Carolyn’s biggest fan and supporter for marathons, fundraising and all of life’s journeys. Carolyn was his number one cheerleader and support during his courageous battle with cancer. Together they were an amazing couple and team that shared a true bond of love. His charismatic personality was a gift that his family and friends will treasure.
He is survived by his loving wife Carolyn Collins, his father Wallace Gallant and mother Patricia of Prince Edward Island, Canada, his brother Todd Gallant and wife Julie of Portsmouth, NH, his sister Heather Roderick and husband John of Somerville, MA, his daughter Demi Nigro and husband Carmine of Danvers, MA, his son Reid of Peabody, MA, his granddaughter Lorea Nigro and many nieces and nephews.
