Obituary of Michael Therrien
WESTFORD / BARRE VT - On the 17th day of January, 2018, our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Michael Everett Therrien, passed peacefully from this earthly world into his eternal resting place.
Mike was born in Burlington on July 18, 1957 to Millie (St. Peter) Therrien and the late Everett (Terry) Therrien.
Mike grew up in Westford, and graduated from Essex Jct. High School. Always a thoughtful and considerate person, Mike derived great pleasure from spending time with family and friends. His interests included local history and family genealogy, gardening, and anything to do with food, from cooking to eating, Mike loved food. Work always found him employed within the food industry, most recently as a meat cutter at Shaw's in Berlin.
He was a member of the VT Old Cemeteries Association, working alongside his uncle, Red Therrien, to clean and repair old cemetery markers.
Mike will be remembered by all who knew him as a man of honor, truth and integrity. He will be missed beyond measure. Mike leaves his mother, Millie and her partner Ray Lavigne, his sister Lorrie and her husband Mike Machia, his brother Ed, his
God sister Nichole Clayton and her sons Aydyn and Ethyn, and good friends, Joni, Steve, Harry and Dusty, his aunts and many cousins. Mike loved children and the family pets, especially Chici and Charlie. He was predeceased by his dad, his younger brother Gil, as well as several uncles and aunts.
