Obituary for Stuart Armet
Living life fully, right to the finish line, Dr. Stuart Armet had a beautiful, peaceful, dignified dying on Sunday, April 2, 2017, at home with his family in Williamstown.
Whether he was “Stuie”, “Doc Stu”, “Dr. Armet” or “Dad” and “GP”, he was a loving father, devoted husband, engaged grandfather, supportive uncle and brother...an inspiration to so many. He was a dentist, U.S. Navy veteran, skier & ski buddy, traveler, hiker and adventurer. A dance partner, storyteller, swimmer, theater, music, & arts appreciator, sports fan and athletic champion. A problem solver, woodsman, lumberjack & gardener, fixer & tinkerer, and outside of the box thinker. Stu loved crossword puzzles, family games, and a sunny day whether on the beach or on the slopes. Loyal, and easy going, he was “love in action”, a genuine lover of life, role model, and best friend.
He is survived by Helene, his high school sweetheart and wife of 53 years; his son David Armet and wife Jennifer of Williamstown; daughter Stacey Wenczel and husband Stephen of Leverett; brother-in-law Jack Spira of Roanoke, VA; and grandchildren Kale, Zachary, Stella and Zoe.
A Service of Remembrance and Farewell to honor Stuart’s courage and example will be held at Congregation Beth Israel, North Adams on Thursday, April 6 at 11AM. The family will sit Shiva and welcome visitors on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, 7 - 9PM at the family home, 1136 Simonds Road.
Donations can be made to Congregation Beth Israel and Hillcrest Dental, who created the annual Dr. Stuart Armet Dental Employee the Year Award. Donations should be sent to Flynn & Dagnoli Funeral Home, 521 West Main St., North Adams, MA 0124
