CHARLES HENRY RESSEGUIE - MILTON - Charles Henry Resseguie, 92, died peacefully surrounded by his family, on Thursday, April 18, 2013, in Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington. Charles was born on July 7, 1920, in Bennington, the son of Raymond and Mary (Durand) Resseguie Sr. Charlie graduated from high school in Millbury, Mass., and proudly served in the U.S. Army during W.W.II in the European Theatre. On June 24, 1946, he married his grade school sweetheart and next door neighbor, Margaret Gauvin. He worked for many years as a supervisor for several knitting companies in Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey and Vermont. In his earlier years, Charles earned his pilot's license and later enjoyed building and flying model airplanes. Charlie's greatest love in life was his family; everything was centered around them. He loved the outdoors and taught his children and grandchildren how to fly fish, hunt, ski, golf, camp and garden. When his mobility was limited, Chuck enjoyed time spent with his family playing Yahtzee and eating creemees.
