Robert Trufant

Born and Raised in Everett, Worked at AVCO

Robert F. Trufant, 66, of North Attleboro passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, December 23, 2017 at Sturdy Memorial Hospital. He was the loving husband of the late Paula (Vaillancourt) Trufant who died in 2010.

Born April 1, 1951 in Everett, he was a son of Ralph S. Trufant, Jr. of Everett and the late Josephine (Perry) Trufant who died earlier this year.

Robert grew up in Everett and was a 1969 graduate of Everett High School. He attended a year of trade school after high school and then began work as a carpenter. He worked at AVCO in Everett for many years and then with several local builders before becoming self-employed over 20 years ago. He has been a resident of North Attleboro since 1987.

Robert loved spending time with his family and enjoyed travelling, particularly to Disney and to North Carolina to see his daughter’s family. Robert’s work ethic and sense of humor will be sorely missed. He was always there for his family and friends, you could always count on him to get it done, “the right way.”

In addition to his father, he is survived by three children: Stephanie Taggart and husband Doug of Willow Spring, NC, Michael Trufant and wife Megan of Seekonk, and Mark Trufant and wife Jessica of North Attleboro.
