Azarias Bousquet

Azarias “Lou” Bousquet, 68, of Brownington, and North Port, Florida, died from a short fight with cancer on November 19 under hospice care in Florida.

He was born on February 4, 1949, to Azarias and Eleanor Bousquet in Newport. Shortly after his birth, his family moved to Massachusetts and Connecticut where he grew up. In Connecticut, Mr. Bousquet was a truck driver for many years. In 1997 he married his wife, Bonnie, in Venice, Florida. They moved to Vermont where he retired from the Department of Corrections as a supervisor of security. After retirement, Mr. and Mrs. Bousquet spent their summers in Vermont and their winters in Florida.

Mr. Bousquet enjoyed perch fishing in his boat with Jodi and Butch, and loved spending time with his granddaughters just being “Poppie.” He loved deer hunting and spending time with his friends at Choinieres’ camp. Unfortunately, he was unable to make the hunting trip to Vermont this year. He liked to play golf with his uncle Bob at the Barton golf course. In his younger years, he completed two tours of duty in the Vietnam War as a sergeant in the First Cavalry Division.

He is survived by his wife, Bonnie; his stepdaughter Jodi Morley, and her husband, John Morley III; and his granddaughters Taylor and Brooke Morley, all of Orleans; his stepson Jason Larocque, and his wife, Roxanne, of Lyndonville; his siblings: Robert Bousquet and his wife, Jackie, of Connecticut, Michael Bousquet and his wife, Carol, of Florida, and Denise Kolenda and her partner, Greg, of Indiana. He also leaves many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Theodore F. Zahne

Theodore “Ted” F. Zahne, 59, of Barton, died suddenly at his home on November 20, 2017.

He was born in Paterson, New Jersey. He was the beloved son of Ted and Bonnie Zahne and the oldest of seven loving siblings: Rose Zahne (deceased), Fran Macaluso, Chris Zahne, Greg Zahne, Mary Hansen, Billy Zahne; cherished uncle of Bonnie and Johnny Macaluso, Ivonna, Bonnie, and Kevin Zahne, Abby Zahne, Rose and Kate Hansen, and “Richie.” He so loved, and in return was so loved by, his nieces and nephews as he was “the biggest kid of them all.” He will also be sadly missed by his in-laws: John, Ilona, Rob, Yvonne, and Sue; as well as many cousins and friends.

Mr. Zahne was an avid reader and a self-taught computer enthusiast. He was particularly fond of the Adobe suite and created and shared many of his “visions” — some in jest and others in seriousness. He spent most of his life in New Jersey but moved to his beloved Northeast Kingdom over ten years ago to search for solace after the passing of his dad, “Doc.” He was happy to help with the care of his good friend, Butch Rash, for the last few years. He had a kind heart and a silly spirit. He loved to laugh and make others laugh. He will be greatly missed by all.

A funeral service was held on November 24 at the Curtis-Britch-Converse-Rushford Funeral Home in Barton. The Reverend Timothy Naples officiated the service.
