Henry R. Fountain

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Sunday, May 5th in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107) Revere from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., for Henry Rollin Fountain, who passed most unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 1st at the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, Melrose. His funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Monday, May 6th at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.) at 11:00 a.m. Interment is private.

Born & raised in Chelsea, he lived most of his life in Revere and was an alumnus of Revere High School, Class of 1960. He & his family moved to Wakefield about 15 years ago. For over 17 years, he has been employed with the Mystic Valley Seniors as a meal coordinator, a job he loved and considered almost as a ministry helping the “Seniors” with their food planning. For many years, before working with Mystic Valley, he worked in retail management and for some ten years was a Retail Manager for the Bradlee’s Department Stores of New England. His greatest love & devotion was to his large and caring family. His sudden and unexpected passing is indeed an enormous grief to bear, however, as he was an active practicing Catholic, and a Eucharistic Minister for Immaculate Conception Parish, he was duly prepared, pray God.

He is the beloved husband of Roberta M. (Russo) Fountain & the cherished father of Andrea M. Clark of Danvers, J. Henry Fountain & his wife, Kim of Danvers, Nicole R. Sweet & her husband, Curtis of Sandown, NH., Justin A. Fountain & his fiancee, Stacey Roche & Amanda M. Green & her husband, Joseph all of Revere, Neal H. Fountain & his wife, Gina of Danvers & Alec H. Fountain of Wakefield. He is the dear brother of Freda Lehnen, Vern Fountain & Claudette Fountain, all of Grand Rapids, Michigan & the late Andrew Fountain. He is also lovingly survived by nine (9) grandchildren, (2) great grandchildren & many nieces & nephews.
