Mark R. "Woody" Peloquin, 67, of West Greenwich, died August 6, 2020, in his home, with his wife, Rose M. (Robitaille) Peloquin, by his side, after a six month courageous battle with recurrent cancer. Born in Miami, FL, he was raised by two very strong women: his mom, Muriel (Blanchette) Peloquin, and his deceased grandmother, Lorretta Blanchette. They both instilled strong work ethic and family values.
Besides his wife and mother, he leaves his son, Jamie Peloquin and his wife Ryun, and their children, Natalie and Simon of Freeport, ME; his daughter, Holly Guernon and her boyfriend, Mike Galego, and her children, Ashlyn, Jade, and Zachary of North Smithfield; his stepdaughter, Katie Dager and her husband James, and their children, Carolina and Brighton, of Hendersonville, NC; his stepson, Tyler Ramos and his husband Chris of Cranston. He also leaves many friends, too numerous to name individually; two steadfast friends from first grade at St. Charles Elementary, Bill Callanan, and Wally Kociuba; and his beloved Class of "71" from Mt. St. Charles, and all their antics.
He received his Associate’s Degree from Bryant College. Mark had been employed by TASCO since 2003 as a plant manager. He previously held similar positions at CAL-Greg of Warwick, and Advanced Interconnections of West Warwick.
Mark’s family would like to add special thanks to Dr. Ari Birnbaum and all the staff at Lifespan Cancer Institute in Providence, East Greenwich and Lincoln Campuses, as well as VNA of Care New England Palliative Care And Hospice for extraordinary care and compassion during Mark's final days.
Mark has been set free of his earthly burdens, to run the Falmouth streets, to take his chair ride up Sunday River to "put the candlestick back" and take his final run down the Lollapalooza Trail to his log cabin in the sky, and watch "Blazing Saddles" forever!
