Wilfrid Ovide Vachon

of Benton, AR

April 16, 1932 - March 29, 2024

Wilfrid (Will) Ovide Vachon, 91, of Benton, Arkansas passed away on March 29th at St. Vincents Hospital in Little Rock, AR.
Will was born in Salem, MA to Romeo Vachon and Regina Boucher on April 16th, 1932. He went to high school at St. John's Preparatory and graduated in 1950. He volunteered and served four years in the U.S. Air Force, with time served in Japan and North Korea. Upon returning, he began his business career at Rickel Home Center, a northeast home center retail chain, as a warehouse stocking clerk and ascended through various positions to Executive Vice President. In his retirement, he opened and operated a successful, innovative video store concept in New Brunswick, NJ called "Video Vault".
Will's greatest pleasure came from spending time with his wife, Lynn; his family (and the dogs!). He played piano and enjoyed the best in music, especially classical and jazz. He also enjoyed golf and classic movies.
Will is survived by his wife, Lynn; his two sons, Brian and Kerry Vachon and his daughter, Amy Vachon. He was preceded in death by his son, Brad Vachon and his brother, Armand Vachon. He has eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
Funeral service will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 7525 W Markham St, Little Rock, AR on Wednesday, April 3rd, at 1:00pm with Pastor Jacqueline Buschor officiating. Visitation will also be held at 7525 W Markham St, Little Rock, AR on Tuesday, April 2nd from 6:00 8:00pm. Roller-Alcoa Funeral Home will be handling the funeral arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Faith Lutheran Church of Little Rock or The American Cancer Society. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all of the family and friends who have supported Will throughout his life with special thanks to Faith Lutheran Church.
Wilfrid will always be remembered for his unrelenting devotion to family and friends, his loyalty and integrity and his inquisitiveness for what the future holds for the evolution of mankind.

Will was a blessing to all who knew him. His sense of humor and overall bright outlook on life was contagious. It was interesting to hear "Time Out" by Dave Brubeck at his funeral service since I have always enjoyed jazz by Mr. Brubeck and others along with classical music, as Will did. We will miss Will even though we do not get to church services on a regular basis. Our condolences and a prayer for peace to Lynn and Will's family on his passing. George Wilken
