    MORETOWN — Harland D.E. Westover Sr., 87, passed away at the Berlin Health and Rehabilitation Center on Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013, following several months of declining health. Born in Richford on March 8, 1926, he was the son of the late Charles and Anna (Martin) Westover. On Feb. 9, 1948, he married the former Theresa M. Corriveau in Waterbury. Theresa predeceased Harland on Jan. 5, 2010.

    Harland grew up in Rochester and went on to serve his country during World War II with the U.S. Navy. Following his discharge from the service, Harland worked for 35 years as a crusher operator for the Eastern Magnesia Talc Co. in Moretown and then retired from Huntington Homes, where he had been employed for five years as a painter.

    Harland’s memberships included the Harry N. Cutting American Legion Post 59 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10034, both of Waterbury. Harland’s family lovingly remembers him for his lifelong dedication to the Red Sox, his love of fishing, and the absolute joy he felt cutting wood; truly, nothing made him happier.

    Harland is loved and mourned by his son, Harland D. Westover Jr., and his longtime companion, Penny Chartier, of Middlesex; two grandchildren, Stacy Westover and Mark Westover; three great-grandchildren, Riley Marie Westover, Emma Westover and Joshua Westover; his sisters-in-law, Lillian Sherman and her husband, Robert, of Moretown, and Rita Abair, of Essex Junction; as well as nieces, nephews and extended family.

    Harland was predeceased by six sisters, Mabel Houghton, Alice Gavin, Doris Bowen, Theresa Bruce, Genevieve Deyette, Hazel Collins, and two brothers, Lawrence Westover Sr. and Edmond Westover.

    Graveside services will be held from Holy Cross Cemetery in Duxbury this spring. For those who wish, memorial gifts would be appreciated to the American Cancer Society, New England Division, P.O. Box 9376, Framingham, MA 01701 (www.cancer.org). Assisting the family is the Perkins-Parker Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Waterbury.
