Obituary of Terry W. Chabot
Terry W. Chabot, 79, of South Glastonbury passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Friday, November 24. He was born in Wethersfield, CT on April 23, 1944 to Wilfred and Lenora (McInerney) Chabot.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Nancy, his two daughters and six grandchildren. Laura Chabot and Charles Erickson of Underhill, Vermont and their three sons, Griffin, Ben and Will, and Kara and Daniel Lavoie of South Glastonbury and their three daughters, Sarah, Rebecca and Abby. He was predeceased by his brother, Beau and is survived by his brother Alfred and his wife Cathe of Portland, his sister-in-law Patricia of Keene NH and several nieces and their husbands and children.
Terry had a great love of his country and proudly served in the Army during the Vietnam War. After completing his tour of duty in 1968, he and Nancy got married, moved to Rocky Hill and he went to work at National Cash Register. In 1971 they moved to South Glastonbury and shortly after he began his career at Hartford National Bank where he remained through all its mergers and acquisitions until retiring in 2003 as an executive vice president of project delivery and planning with Global Technologies at Fleet Boston Financial.
In retirement, Terry enjoyed his love of the outdoors, hiking, biking, skiing, camping and kayaking. He joined many outdoor groups not only as a participant but also as a teacher and guide. He belonged to many organizations including Rhode Island Canoe and Kayak, Mass Audubon and the Connecticut Science Fair. To all organizations he joined, he volunteered his time generously and wholeheartedly and made lasting friendships. He and Nancy enjoyed kayaking, attending the theatre, traveling, and spending time with their friends. But most of all he was a devoted grandfather and treasured family vacations, holidays and time spent together. Always proud of everything they did and ready to cheer them on. His grandchildren each have their own cherished memories of time spent with “Pop Pop.”
