He was a miracle man. He survived many hard battles. He was told many time he wouldn’t survive but he always proved them wrong. He was the toughest man you will ever know. He never gave up no matter what he faced. He had a lot of fight. Each time they told him he would die but he said God had more work for him to do. He loved his family, he loved his life, he loved his work, he loved this world and never wanted to leave.
He was a great husband and said his wife was the best thing that every happened to him.
He worked very hard his whole life and always gave everything he had to his family.
He devoted 60 years to taking care of Crystal Springs Water System in East Montpelier, VT and 50 years to taking care of Berlin Water Company in Berlin, VT. He worked night and day to give people safe drinking water.
For 50 years he owned and managed a number of rental units in Barre, VT. He was a great landlord and worked very hard to give people a nice place to live.
His work for God is now complete. He is with the Lord in heaven.
