Obituary Condolences

WILMINGTON -- Micah James Dupuis, 19, a resident of Wimmelman Road, died Saturday, Dec. 31, 2005, in Brookline, as a result of injuries sustained in a logging accident. Micah, the youngest son of Bernard and Lynn (Hilchey) Dupuis, was born in Greenfield, Mass., on Dec. 11, 1986. He received his education in Wyoming and Wilmington schools.

Micah was doing what he loved when he was killed on Saturday. He had dreamed of being a logger since his early childhood and continuing on with the family business, Dupuis Family Logging. His father and two brothers were working with him when the accident occurred. He had participated in the Game of Logging where he became an expert technician in the logging industry. Micah was a member of the Wilmington Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness.

He enjoyed anything with a motor in it, especially trucks. He was a member of the Northeast Truck Pullers Association and was to receive his third overall points championship trophy this January. He also enjoyed drag racing, doing burn-outs with his street truck and snowmobiling. As an outdoorsman, he liked to go hunting and fishing. He was especially fond of Wyoming for fishing, which was his favorite state. He and his family have visited all but two states. Micah’s family was very important to him and he maintained a strong family bond with them.

Mihah leaves his parents, Bernard and Lynn Dupuis of Wilmington; two brothers, Aaron and wife, Melissa Dupuis, of Wilmington and Sean Dupuis of Wilmington; the love of his life, Sara Ashcraft, who he was to marry in the future; paternal grandparents, Ovide and Joanne Dupuis of Whitingham; maternal grandparents, Robert and Shirley Hilchey of East Arlington; great-grandmother Edith Houle of Whitingham; three nephews, Dylan, Connor and Caleb Dupuis; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by a sister, Danielle, and grandmother, Katherine Dupuis.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2006, at the Wilmington Kingdom Hall, Route 100, in Whitingham at 2 p.m. Micah will be laid to rest next to his sister in the Dupuis family lot in the Sadawga Cemetery. Friends are invited to call at the Covey & Allen Funeral Home, 44 East Main St., on Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. when the family will be present.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Newbrook Fire-Rescue in recognition of their heroic efforts to save Micah’s life. Donations may be sent to the Covey & Allen Funeral Home, P.O. Box 215, Wilmington, VT 05363.
