By his siblings Noella Roy and her husband Raymond of Massachusetts, Peggy (Pierrette) Collins and her husband Lee of Barton Vermont, Aline LaMadeleine of West Charleston Vermont, Diane Mudgett and her husband Mark of Glover Vermont, Real Fontaine and his wife Rose of Irasburg Vermont, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
