Gregory George Martell, 65, of New Haven


NEW HAVEN — It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Gregory George Martell, 65, on Sept. 14, 2022, at the UVM Medical Center in Burlington, Vt. Gregory, known to most as “Joe,” was born Feb. 13, 1957, in Middlebury, Vt., to Agnes and Alson Martell.

Joe was employed at UTC Aerospace Systems (formerly Simonds Precision) in Vergennes for over 40 years, where he made many, many friends. While Joe struggled with health issues for several years, his quick wit and jovial spirit never wavered.

Joe will be dearly missed by his friends and family, particularly his grandsons, Evan and Carter, who he adored. Joe is survived by his wife of 45 years, Rhonda Martell; daughters Jamie Martell (Patrick Miner) and Jessica Smith (Sean); grandsons Evan Oberle and Carter Smith; father, Alson Martell; sisters Diana McCormick (Donald), Priscilla “Perky” Larrow (Melvin) and Brenda Jones (Charlie); as well as several nieces and nephews. Joe was predeceased by his mother Agnes Martell and son-in-law Shaun Steadman.

Calling hours will be held at Brown McClay Funeral Homes in Bristol, Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 4-6 p.m., with a brief service beginning at 5 p.m. A reception will follow at the Bristol American Legion from 6-8 p.m., light snacks served.

The family would like to thank the Medical ICU staff at UVM Medical Center for their amazing care during Joe’s last few days.
