George Plante Obituary

George Alan Plante, “Georgy Porgy”, “Jorge”, “Pepere”,  68, of Westfield, MA passed away unexpectedly on November 11th, 2023 while surrounded by friends and the love of his life Joanna during his 50th High School Reunion for Agawam High School.

George was born August 6th, 1955 to Louis and Doris Plante and raised in Agawam, MA. He later moved to Westfield, MA in 1979 with his former wife Janet Sanuita where they raised their two children. He spent his days working on various projects around the house, tinkering on cars in the garage, and helping friends and family with home improvement projects. He enjoyed spending time out on the pond with his cat Taz, watching the wildlife, and taking photos with his camera and drone. He loved racing go-karts, watching NASCAR, candlepin bowling, dancing, and playing board games with his family. He had a knack for making everyone laugh with his silly jokes and charismatic personality. He was a regular reader at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish in Westfield for many years. Many will remember him by the absolute joy for life he exuded. 

George was preceded in death by his parents Doris (Vaillancourt) and Louis Plante of Otis, MA. He is survived by his girlfriend of 8 years Joanna Bryll, his son Brian and daughter-in-law Cathy Plante, grandchildren Hunter and Haley, and his daughter Michelle Plante. He leaves behind his older sister Donna Watson and her husband Ron Watson, his nephew David Watson, niece Sarah Watson, nephews Dustin and Duane King, his step grandchild Jason and their spouse Zariah Tien-Colon. 

Visiting hours will be held at the Firtion Adams Funeral Service at 76 Broad Street Westfield, MA on Saturday, November 18th, 2023 from 1pm-3pm with a service to follow at 3pm. A mass will be held at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish at 127 Holyoke Road Westfield, MA on Saturday, November 25, 2023 at 10am.
