Frederick John Skwirut Jr.

Obituary Condolences

WILMINGTON -- On Friday, May 5, 2006, we saw the passing of Frederick John Skwirut Jr., a beloved husband, father, son and brother. Fred was born in Bennington on Feb. 12, 1976, to Frederick and Dorothy (Swider) Skwirut. A lifelong resident of Wilmington, he graduated from Wilmington High School in 1994 and began a career as a carpenter working throughout the Deerfield Valley.

He will be sadly missed by a large part of the community whose lives he touched with his excellent sense of humor and natural wisdom, combined with his diligent work ethic. Also missing Fred will be his outdoor adventure crews, the syrup team and many of the people to whom he has been selling “Fred’s Firewood” to for the past 15 years.

Fred leaves his loving wife, Belle Hamilton (Tyler) Skwirut, and their son, Hayden Frederick Skwirut, of Wilmington; his parents, Fred and Dorothy Skwirut of Wilmington; a sister, Stacey Skwirut of Bennington; a brother, Adam Skwirut of Wilmington; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. His in-laws are also grieving the loss of this relatively new addition to their family. Fred had a great appreciation for Belle’s extensive family and always related that he enjoyed the times they had the opportunity to spend together.

A service to celebrate the life of Fred will be held on Wednesday, May 10, 2006, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Church with the Rev. Steve McClelland, pastor of the West Brattleboro Baptist Church, presiding. Burial will follow in the family lot in Riverview Cemetery. Friends may call at the Covey & Allen Funeral Home on Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m., when the family will be present.

Memorial gifts in memory of Fred may be given to his wife Belle and son Hayden in care of the Covey & Allen Funeral Home, P.O. Box 215, Wilmington, VT 05363.
