I will always remember Uncle Albert as being a loving, kind man, and before we moved away, we spent many happy hours with him. I have many warm and beautiful memories of being in Uncle Al and Aunt Lucille's house, and being surrounded by the love and kindness that existed in their space. You now belong to the ages, dear man, the memories you left behind still bring warmth to my heart ... we may have lived apart, but you were never forgotten even after all these years.

Lucille my deepest sympathies...Although I did not get to know you all that well, I do remember Albert as being a gentle man...I believe the last time we met was at Aunt Rose's gravesite many years ago. I think of you every spring as I still tend to her grave site. I often think of Jeanne also and wonder how she is doing.
I was away at my daughters in Virginia and just getting caught up on the newspapers now...otherwise I would have been at the church Saturday...
If you wish to contact me please do.

Albert is my Dad's uncle, so that makes him Great to me! ? Living out of state, I didn't get to spend so much time with a lot of the family, however during our time in Mass, I do remember going to their house a couple times, what a beautiful place it is. I still have memories of that home and the two wonderful people that lived in it. I remember just feeling the love in the home, it was a very happy home! Uncle Albert was very tall, of course, I was a bit younger and shorter back then. Aunt Lucille, my heart goes out to you. I know Uncle will always be with you and watch over you. Uncle, may your soul be at peace and watch over us. Much love.

Albert was also the younger brother to Armand Caron (deceased) of Burlington Vermont, and Sisters Rita Caron Teubner, and Claire Caron Gagnon (deceased). He was my Godfather and as Diane stated the beloved older brother of our (deceased) Mom, Beatrice Caron Tracey. Uncle we want you to know that we know you are now joined with two of your sisters and your brother and parents. As Christ promised to those who believe in Him, absent from the body and present with the Lord. Your body has been healed. Although we are half way across the country you have always been in our thoughts and prayers. Love your nephew and God Son Edward Tracey.

Uncle Albert was a gentle man who was greatly loved by all his nieces and nephews. He was the brother of Rita Caron Teuber, Armand Caron, Claire Caron Gagnon and Beatrice Caron Tracey. He is survived by his sister Rita who is also my mother. We lived too far away to see him and Auntie, but we all loved him dearly. They as a couple were so loving towards each other and all their family they were truly an example to everyone on how to live a good christian life an an exemplary example of how a marriage should be.

Albert Caron will always be remembered as a beloved brother of Beatrice Caron Tracey (deceased), uncle of many nieces and nephews, including myself, Diane Rita Colom (Tracey), Godfather, especially to two of my three children, Miguel G. Colom and Patrick R. Colom. A dear Great uncle to my daughter, Ariana Colom and Uncle to my husband, Jose J. Colom. Many Christmas celebrations at their home will always be a special memory. My husband and I also began our marriage with a reception at their home. Many great life events included him and my dear Aunt Lucille, a loving tribute to marriage. You will always be remembered as an essential part of my family. I'm sorry we were too many miles apart. Our love for you will never fade. May God's mercy be yours! Love you!
