THOMAS JOHN LEONARD DUCLOS

WEYBRIDGE – Thomas “Tom”   “Tommy” Duclos, 77, died in his home following an extended illness Dec. 14, 2021. He was born Oct. 25, 1944, in Weybridge, Vt., the son of George A. and Clarabel (Lathrop) Duclos.

Tom graduated from Rice Memorial High School in 1964. Following graduation, he worked for the University of Vermont for 26 years on their farms in Weybridge and Burlington. He then spent the next 39 years on his own farm in Weybridge with the love of his life, Lisa Thompson. Custom farm work and shearing sheep commercially are just a couple of the many jobs that have kept the two very busy. His knowledge and skill were impressive and those who worked with Tom were sure to learn from him, as he was always willing to share what his years of experience had taught him.

For many years, Tom’s intensely strong work ethic kept him from experiencing his true joy in life. As he aged, he found the wisdom in balancing work with spending quality time with his many dearly loved friends and family members, sharing food, laughter and storytelling. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time with his dogs.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers George and Robert, sisters Helen and Isoline, daughter April, and several nephews and great nephews.

Surviving in addition to his loving wife Lisa, are daughter Ann (Jim Collier), grandsons Jaden and Damon and great-granddaughter Sage; daughter Sara (Karl Packer) and granddaughter Allison; daughter Mae and grandson Kyle; granddaughter Tara Lynn and great-grandsons Logan and Quinton; sisters Mary (Burgess) Field and Jane (Wayne) Zimmerman; former wife Lois (Coleman) Duclos; and many beloved nieces and nephews and their families, too numerous to list.

The family would like to sincerely thank Laura Dame, Cari James, Addison County Home Health and Hospice, and all of their many friends and extended family members for their extraordinary care and support.

A private burial will be held by the family and a Celebration of Life will take place in the spring of 2022.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Sanderson-Ducharme Funeral Home. Online condolences at www.sandersonfuneralservice.com.◊
