Theodore E. "Ted" Vallieres Jr. passed away on Oct. 8, 2019, in Concord Hospital after battling cancer for close to a year.

Born in Grasmere on April 19, 1944, he was the son of Theodore Emile and Germaine (Tessier) Vallieres. He was married to Alison (Riley) Vallieres. She was the "love of his life" and so was he for her. In 1961, he graduated from Bishop Brady High School. From 1962 to 1965, he served in the U.S. Navy with the Seabees as a heavy equipment operator. His tour of duty included the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

Ted worked for Bagshaw Machinery Co. in Nashua as a machinist. He went on to obtain his master plumber and master electrician licenses. He was also a wholesaler to convenience stores for more than 25 years.

He served as selectman in the town of Dunbarton for four years. Ted was also president of the Dunbarton Historical Society and worked hard to raise funds and start construction on the Jameson Cape on the Dunbarton Historical Society property.

His greatest love was traveling with his wife, Alison. He was able to complete a planned trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan shortly before his death. Ted will be extremely missed by all. Ted was predeceased by his parents; his sisters, Margaret Perusse and Yvette McVay; and his brother, Raymond Vallieres.

Family members include his wife of 21 years, Alison; his sister, Jacqueline Larmie; three children, Theodore E. Vallieres III, Peter Vallieres and Susan; three stepchildren, Todd Riley (Dorothy) of Warner, Tammy Bush (Brian) of Epsom, and Dale Ford of Dunbarton, which he considered all to be his own children. Ted had many cousins, nieces and nephews he was close with that grew up together on the West Side of Manchester on Alsace Street and spent many hours at the Rock Rimmon Pool. The family would like to extend their gratitude and thanks for the special care that the nurses and staff at 4 East and the Payson Center at Concord Hospital gave to Ted.

Ted was such a great husband to my mom and loved her so much...Not a day went by that they didn’t tell one another “I love you honey” and then give each other a kiss. He sent her flowers once a week to let her know how much he cared for her and was thinking of her.
Ted was patient, kind, and treated myself and my siblings as his own children.
Ted had a dry sense of humor so there were times you never knew if what he was telling you was true/serious...after a few moments, he would begin laughing and tell you he was kidding...He surely kept us on our toes!!!
I will miss Ted as we had become very close over the past years...Being with Ted & mom keeps me believing that fairy tale romances still do exist because the love they had for each other was so special.
I will miss his joking, his laugh and the in depth conversations we shared, but I know Ted is not hurting any longer...I know you will be watching over us Ted. You will surely be missed but you will always have a place in our hearts! ❤️❤️
