Obituary

David R. LeTellier, loving son, brother and uncle, was called home on Monday, May 16, 2022, at the age of 61 after a long battle with cancer. David was born on May 10, 1961 in Holyoke, MA to Alcide and Shirley (Girard) LeTellier and was a 1979 graduate of Holyoke High School. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Westfield State University in 1983 and worked worldwide in the travel and hotel industry for 37 years. His last position was the Director of Sales and Marketing Director for Hilton Hotels Worldwide, Cambridge Doubletree Suites Boston, MA. David had a passion for travel, and he delighted in telling his nieces and nephews of his travel adventures ranging from an African safari in a hot air balloon to hiking the Alps, to name a few. He also loved the ocean and could be found walking the beach early in the mornings. David was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. His retirement philosophy was “Sky’s out -Thighs out, living life on the beach.” David was preceded in death by his father, Alcide. He is survived by his mother, Shirley; his four sisters: Deborah Michon and husband Steven, Doreen Jakubasz and husband Lance, Dianne Kelliher, and Donna Beaudry and husband Thomas, along with several nieces, nephews, cousins, an endless number of friends, and his beloved dog, Barney, who will miss him dearly. The funeral will be held on Friday, May 20th at 8:30 am from the Barry J. Farrell Funeral Home, 2049 Northampton Street, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 am at Blessed Sacrament Church, 1945 Northampton Street. Burial will follow in Forestdale Cemetery West, Rock Valley Road. Calling hours will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, May 19th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
