Kevin Shrader, 63, of Westminster, Vermont, passed away on Monday,
December 7, as a result of a workplace accident. He was the loving
husband of wife Beth M. (Schuster) Shrader and the owner of All
Seasons Tree Service, having been in the tree care industry for four
decades in both New Jersey and Vermont. Born in 1957 in Morristown,
NJ, he was the fourth child of Fred and Dorothy Shrader of East
Hanover, NJ. He is survived by sister-in-law Janette Schuster of
Walpole, NH, siblings Sandford Shrader and wife Maureen of East
Hanover, NJ, Nancy Ochs of Blairstown, NJ, and David Shrader and
wife Sharon of Amherst, Virginia, and five nieces and nephews. Kevin
grew up and attended the local schools in East Hanover, NJ, and moved
to Westminster in 2003.
Kevin's passions were his family and his Alaskan malamute sled dogs.
He was happiest when camping, fishing, and boating with his wife of 25
years and dog Avalanche. He was a hardworking, loyal, and generous
friend and a ten-year member of the Westminster Fire Department who
never refused to help a community member in need. A tree planting and
celebration of his life will take place in the spring. Kevin was on the
advisory board of the New England Chapter of the International Society
of Arboriculture, and in lieu of flowers, the family requests that
donations be made to their high school scholarship fund (sent checks to:
New England Chapter of the ISA, PO Box 435, Norwell, MA 02061,
Attn: NEC-ISA high school scholarship fund).
