Obituary for Edwin T. Gallant

Print
On November 1st 2018, Edwin T. Gallant passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was 75 years old and survived by his wife Leslie, two sons Ted and Charlie, his brother Charles and his wife Elaine.

Ed was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, the son of the late Theodore and Bernice Gallant. After college he served in the Army Reserves and then began a long and successful career with Levi Strauss & Co. His hard work and dedication brought him to Washington DC, where he met his wife Leslie. There they began a marriage that lasted over 40 years.

He and Leslie moved to Westport, Connecticut where they started a family. He was active in many aspects of the community. Most notably, he served as Chairman of the Parish Council at St. Francis of Assisi Church, contributed to the Westport Soccer Association and served as a volunteer EMT.

Ed was a wonderful man, who cared about being a good person. He was honest, direct, thoughtful and a devout Catholic. As a true gentleman, he would always hold open a door and was quick to help a neighbor in need. He will be missed dearly.

A service for Ed will be held at St Francis of Assisi Church in Weston on Wednesday, November 7th at 10am. A luncheon at the Hunt Club in Westport will follow at noon. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society.
