Wilmington, VT - Raymond Cyrus Lavoy, 97, a resident of Wilmington, passed away August 18, 2017 at his home surrounded by his family. Raymond was born in Wilmington on May 9, 1920 the son of the late Cyrus and Marguerite (Beaudry) Lavoy.

He graduated from Wilmington High School where he played both baseball and basketball. Raymond was a mechanic for Moran's Garage before entering the Army where he served in World War II.

Following his discharge from the service he worked as a self employed plumber and propane gas distributor and retired at the age of 80. He was a member of the United State Army Air Corps and former member of the VFW and American Legion in Wilmington.
