George J. Vallee, 76, of Hubbardston, died peacefully, Sunday, January 17, 2021, in his residence surrounded by his family.
Born in Gardner on October 5, 1944, he was the son of the late John T. and Alda M. (Vallee) Porko. He graduated from Athol High School with the Class of 1962. George was a United States Coast Guard Veteran serving from 1963 to 1967 as a radarman, where he received the National Service Defense Medal and the Antarctic Service Medal. He was a welder and maintenance technician employed by C&W Fabricators for 31-years. George went on to delivering oil and propane for local companies until his retirement.
George loved camping and traveling the country on his Harley Davidson, where he always knew which scenic road to take. He was extremely hard working, loved hunting and all things outdoors. But the time that George truly loved and treasured the most was spent with his family.
