Albert Thomas Girard, 73, of Rangeley Plantation, Maine, passed away peacefully at his home Sunday, June 28, 2020 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. He was a devoted and loving husband to Betsey (Woike) Girard for 29 years.
Al, a long time resident of Connecticut, was born on Oct 22, 1946 in West Hartford, son of the late Timothy and Gertrude (Tiechert) Girard. He was a graduate of Conard High School in West Hartford and served in the US Navy from 1966-1971. He was employed at Southern New England Telephone Company for 32 years. Al loved being outdoors, especially boating, skiing, fishing, golf, and running. After living in Texas for a time, he and Betsey settled in Maine, where they built their ideal retreat. There, he became a creative partner helping his wife create beautiful quilts and amazing baked goods while listening to music and surrounded by their furry friends. All that knew him will remember his gentle kindness and fun-loving sense of humor.
Along with his wife Betsey, he leaves a step son, Mathew, of Texas; cherished brother-in-law, James, of Maine; his two brothers Blaine, of Connecticut, and Ronald, of Massachusetts and their families; and three grandchildren.
Cremation cared for by Wiles Remembrance Center: Adams-McFarlane Chapel137 Farmington Falls Rd. Farmington, ME. A private interment will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Androscoggin Home Healthcare & Hospice 15 Strawberry Avenue, Lewiston, ME 04240. A kind word may be left on his memory wall at

I loved watching Al help Betsey select fabrics for the next quilt. They were such partners in life!!
Al's kind and gentle spirit were inspirational.
May peace be with Betsey and the entire family.

Al's photo says it all. Fun loving and quick with a smile, his kindness of spirit never diminished. We all loved being together for our weekly lunches and long walks. Let's not forget our whistler extraordinaire.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Betsey and all your family.

Another SNET colleague lost. Al was always a gentle person, very smart but understated about it. Very easy to get along and work with, a real gentleman.
My sympathies to his family.

I remember Al from back in the days when we were switchmen in Hartford. Every day, a group of us would meet for afternoon break up in the cafeteria to work on a crossword puzzle. I'm sure Gary Richards remembers. And Al was always a major contributor in solving the tough ones. As mentioned below, a kind, softspoken gentleman always. Godspeed Al, and our deepest sympathy to Betsey and family.
