R. Philip DeLaricheliere, 76, of Butler Drive in South Burlington passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 11, 2017 while doing something he enjoyed, visiting estate auctions searching for decoys.

Phil was born on January 5, 1941 in Burlington, VT. He was the oldest son of Rene P. DeLaricheliere and Helene Curtis McIsaac. He was a graduate of Cathedral High School, class of 1958.

Phil began his successful 37-year career with the Phone Company in 1956 as an office boy moving on to coin collector and eventually becoming a manager of Rates and Tariffs before his retirement in 1992. He then went on to work for the Visiting Nurses Association for another seven years as Director of Human Resources. While enjoying his retirement he still worked part-time for Bond Auto.

Phil loved the outdoors. He could be found fishing and waterfowl hunting with his friends and family. He had a passion for collecting and acquiring antique hunting decoys at estate sales and auctions. He was a long-time usher at the Flynn and St. Michaels playhouse.

Phil was a proud husband, father and grandfather. He was lovingly referred to as Grandpa. He would never miss a chance to attend an event of any kind. He made being a grandfather his mission in life.
