Andre R Belanger

November 5, 1939 — February 27, 2024

Manchester

Andre Robert Belanger, 84, known affectionately as Andy, passed away Tuesday, February 27, 2024, after a brief illness. Born on November 5, 1939, in Manchester, NH, he was the second son of Armand and Marie (Brunelle) Belanger.

After graduating from West High School (Class of ‘57), he enlisted into the Air Force achieving rank of Airman 1st class and received an honorable discharge in 1962. While stationed in Texas, he met his beloved wife of over 50 years, Joanne Catherine Arini of Roslindale, MA. After the service, he went to work as a lineman and later in his career as an engineer for New England Telephone in Manchester, NH where he enjoyed working 27 years before retiring.

Andy loved being outdoors and shared that love with his family when they went camping.  He spent many summers hauling their camper from one state park to another, enjoying their time together around a bonfire and barbequing. Later in life, he and Joanne enjoyed many summers on Cape Cod and in Wells Maine with their grandchildren.

Golf was a central passion throughout Andy's life. He loved the camaraderie of it on and off the course and could often be found at the Derryfield Country Club playing Hearts or Cribbage with his friends long past the time his wife would have liked him home!

Andy is survived by his two daughters Laura Hinman and her husband Drew, of Holderness, NH and Karen Sieler of Manchester, NH, a son Anthony Belanger and his fiancé Kristin Stone, of Tilton NH, grandsons Craig Belanger, Trevor and Joshua Seiler, of Manchester NH, a great granddaughter Isabella Sophia Belanger, of Rochester, NH and his nephews and nieces - Michael Belanger of Tilton, NH, Timothy Belanger of Chester, NH, Matthew Belanger of Derry, NH, Cheryl Kelley of Windham, NH, and Mary Downey of Manchester, NH.

He was predeceased by his parents Armand and Marie (Brunelle) Belanger, his beloved wife Joanne Catherine (Arini) Belanger & his brother Joseph A Belanger. 

A special thank you to the staff at Havenwood Heritage Heights and Granite State VNA in Concord for their loving care and support during his final days.
