SUNDERLAND -- Gregory Bruce Moffitt, 53, a resident of South Road in Sunderland, died unexpectedly on Sunday evening, June 6, 2004 at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.

Mr. Moffitt was born on June 17, 1950 in Bennington, the son of Duncan and Anne (Greene) Moffitt. He was a 1968 graduate of the Salem Washington Academy and served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam, stationed in Germany.

Greg was artistically gifted and worked as a finish carpenter by trade. He was an especially talented woodcarver and enjoyed restoring old stoves. Greg always called himself a “minimalist” and was often heard saying “less is more.” He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing and camping - Mt. Tabor was his favorite place to be with nature. A well known practical joker, Greg had a great sense of humor and was a great deal of fun to be around. He had a keen interest in American history and was a member of the Disabled American Veterans.

In addition to his parents, Duncan and Anne Moffitt of Sunderland, Greg is survived by two sons, Corey Moffitt of Tennessee and Wesley Moffitt of Sunderland; his daughter Amanda Moffitt of Tennessee; his sister Elaina Oliver of Bennington; two grandchildren, Mikayla and Ian Moffitt; his fiancé Holly Rehn of Shushan, N.Y.; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 11 at 2 p.m. at the Arlington Chapel of the Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Home. The Rev. Thomas Truscott, interim pastor of the Federated Church of East Arlington, will officiate. Military honors will be accorded by members of American Legion Post #69 in Arlington. Interment will take place at the convenience of Greg’s family at Evergreen Cemetery in Arlington. Friends are invited to call at the funeral home on Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m.

Should friends desire, gifts in Gregory Moffitt’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association and Related Disorders of VT in care of the Hanson-Walbridge Arlington Chapel, P.O. Box 528, Arlington, VT 05250.
