Obituary Condolences

Lloyd "Henry" Groux BERLIN, N.Y Lloyd "Henry" Groux, died Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at Craneville Place, Dalton, Mass., after a long illness, with his daughter, Nora, and son-in-law, Edward, by his side. Mr. Groux had lived the past 2½years at Craneville Place. Before that, he lived on the family farm at Brimmer Junction Road.Born on Sept. 18, 1916, son of Harry and Lovirna Bothwell Groux, he attended the one-room schoolhouses in Berlin and Petersburgh. Self-employed for over 60 years, he retired at age 75 only because of painful arthritis. He owned and operated his own fuel oil delivery service for over 20 years, and was known as "the furnace man". He would go out in the middle of the night, no matter what the weather, to repair broken furnaces or to deliver fuel. He also repaired water pipes, installed septic systems and did electrical work, which was his favorite. There was nothing he couldn't fix. When the Town of Petersburgh had a water line break, they knew that Lloyd would know where the pipes were and how to fix the leak. He did repairs in almost every home in Berlin and Petersburgh in his lifetime. When he did service work, he barely charged enough to cover the parts. He was a very special man. He loved collecting junk cars and hoarding just about everything. He leaves his wife of more than 48 years, Hazel Burdick Stanley; his only child, Nora Groux Ormsbee and son-in-law, Edward E. Ormsbee Sr. of Berlin; his dear friends, Allen and Donna Button and family, Arthur and Wanda Moon, Harold and Wanda Stanley, and Albert Andrew and family. He was predeceased by his sister, Charlotte Groux, and his grandson, Edward Ormsbee Jr. FUNERAL NOTICE: Services will be held Saturday at noon in the THOMAS M. BARBER FUNERAL HOME, 66 Armsby Road, Petersburgh. Interment will follow in the family lot in the Berlin Baptist Cemetery in Center Berlin. Relatives and friends are invited to the funeral home for visitation on Saturday, starting at 10 am. The family would like to thank Craneville Place for showing Lloyd the respect and kindness he deserved. We would also like to thank Hospice Services of Western Massachusetts, Samaritan Hospital of Troy, N.Y., and the Berlin Volunteer Ambulance Service for all the care and kindness they have shown for Lloyd; it is all greatly appreciated.
