David Marcel Cantin, 59, of Bristol


BRISTOL — It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of David Marcel Cantin on June 11, 2024, at the age of 59. After a valiant four-year battle with cancer, David peacefully drifted from this world, at home, surrounded by his family.

He was born June 10, 1965, in Norwalk, Conn., the son of Shirley and Rudolphe Cantin. He grew up in Bristol, Vt., and graduated from Mount Abraham Union High School in 1985.

To say that David was a hard-working man would be an understatement as he took the utmost pride in his work. Even throughout treatments, he never wavered. He started at Macintyre Fuels in the mid 80s before moving onto Jackman Fuels years later and was most recently at Robinson All Star Heart & Mead.

Throughout his years, David was a loving husband to his wife, — together for 35 years and married for 28, a proud father to two sons, and a beloved community member and friend. His dedication and loyalty impacted everyone who had the pleasure to cross his path.

He is survived by his wife, Taunia; sons, Christopher and Philip; their partners, Brooke and Quinn; his granddaughter, Enid; siblings Corrine, Charlie and Lloyd; and the families of Cantin, Grungnale and Patch in Maine. He is predeceased by his parents and brother, Leo.

His memorial will be held at New Haven Congregational Church in New Haven, Vt. on June 30 at noon. Following will be his burial at the Greenwood Cemetery in Bristol, Vt. The celebration of life will continue at The American Legion Post 19 in Bristol, Vt.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Addison County Home Health & Hospice. Thank you for being a part of David’s life, he will be missed by all.◊
