Published DateGILFORD — Vance A. Gaul of Gilford, NH passed away on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, after a long and courageous battle with cancer; he was 60 years old.
Vance was born in Belfast, Maine to Louise and Allen Gaul. He was the loving and devoted husband of Marie Landroche, a dedicated son-in-law, great brother-in-law, and a wonderful uncle to his many nieces and nephews.
Vance was a true Renaissance man; a master gardener, excellent cook, and wonderful baker who enjoyed sharing the fruits of his labor and his incredible sense of humor with his loving wife and extended family. As children, all of his nieces and nephews counted on Aunt Marie and Uncle Vance for fun games and wonderful treats. As each of the kids matured, Marie and Vance were their biggest and most thoughtful fans.
Vance was also a valued employee at Winnisquam Printing, Molex Industries, and CVS over the course of 30 years, but it was his appreciation, enjoyment, and love for his family that brought him the most joy and enriched his life. He will be missed by many, but never forgotten.
Vance is survived by his wife Marie, his father Alan, his step-mother Carolyn and sibling Ashley.
His family would like to express sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff at Concord Hospital for their professional and compassionate care and to Mirno Pasquali, his friend and primary.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at 3:30 on Wednesday, June 26, at Saint Lambert's Cemetery, Province Street, Laconia, to honor his life.
