Obituary for Delphis A. Bacon
Delphis A. Bacon, loving husband of the late Elvine P.

A long time communicant of the church of Saint Mary, he was instrumental in the 1952 rebuilding of St. Mary School after a fire of major proportions, and extended his community efforts to include the initial building phases of the Immaculata Retreat House.  Mr. Bacon was past president of the Federation of French Societies of St. Mary, a life long member of the Society of Ste. Jean-Baptiste, the Franco-American Club, the League of the Sacred Heart and 4th degree knight of the Knights of Columbus.  He was Past Exalted Ruler and oldest living member of the Willimantic Lodge B.P.O.Elks #1311. He was also a former member of the National Accountants Association and Funeral Directors Association.  Mr. Bacon lived most of his retirement years in South Windsor and subsequently moved to Saint Mary Home.  He lived a life of integrity, dignity, happiness and contribution. 

Surviving family include his daughters, Jacqueline Warren and her spouse Maxwell of Avon, CT, and Pauline Pinard and her spouse Roger of Narragansett, RI.  He also leaves four grandchildren, Patricia Grillo, Margaret Tatum, Therese White, Richard Newcombe;  9 great-grandchildren and his sister Irene Zimmerman of Branford, CT.  as well as several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his brother William Bacon and sisters Claire Curran, Helen Riordan, Therese Bock and Rita Mallon.  Mr. Bacon was blessed with the love, care and compassion of many friends and staff at St. Mary Home.  Deepest sentiments of gratitude are extended to all who attended to his physical and spiritual needs. 

Friends and relatives will be received at Bacon Funeral Home, 71 Prospect St., Willimantic, CT at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 1 followed by a Mass of Resurrection at 11 a.m. at St. Mary Church, 46 Valley St., Willimantic, CT.  Burial will be held immediately after at St. Joseph Cemetery in Windham.  Memorial donations may be made to St. Mary Home for the benefit of the Chapel of Our Lady of Mercy, 2021 Albany Ave., West Hartford, CT 06117.
