Obituary for Arthur Warren Marchessault
St. Albans Bay – Arthur Warren Marchessault, the best father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and
friend passed away early Thursday, May 25th, 2017, at the Franklin County Rehab Center.

Born in New York city on July 26th, 1942, he was the son of the late Warren Thomas and
Marguerite Mary (Carney) Marchessault. Art was 74 years old.

Art was educated in New York, then enlisted in the U. S. Air Force during the Vietnam War.
Following his honorable discharge, he furthered his education at the University of Oklahoma,
where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and followed with a Masters
Degree in Human Relations/Drug & Alcohol Counseling.

Art’s first job was in high school teaching sailing at the Brown Ledge Summer Camp in
Vermont. He was a Norman Police Officer, counseling at risk and jailed youth at the
University of Oklahoma. He then worked for General Motors Corporation in Security and in
the Material/Purchasing Department. He retired from GM following 21 years of service. Art
also, spent 7 years at Rose State College as an Adjunct Professor, teaching emergency response
and leadership.

Art always brought light to any room and joy to anyone that he met. When he came to St.
Albans, he continued his love for helping others through the Special Education Department
with Bellows Free Academy. He then became an adjudicator for Homeland Security, approving
the dream of coming to America. At the Northwestern Counseling and Support Services he
helped children and adults alike through his love, patience, and understanding. He
considered this job to be the highlight of his life.

In his spare time, Art volunteered as an instructor with the American Red Cross teaching CPR/
First Aid, a sailing instructor with the U.S. Sailing Association and was a former Ordained
Deacon within the Roman Catholic Church.

Art is survived by his children, Warren Marchessault and his wife, Annie, of St. Albans Bay and
Ruth Isaacson and her husband, Ed, of Queens, New York, as well as his siblings, Susan Lewis
of North Syracuse, New York, Mary Schursky and her husband, Mel, of Punta Gorda, Florida,
