Obituary for Henry J. Garceau
St. Albans – Henry J. Garceau a lifelong area resident passed away Friday, July 27, 2018, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Swanton on March 14, 1939, he was the son of the late Gaston and Theresa (Gratton) Garceau. Henry was 79 years old.

On February 28, 1959, in St. Albans, he married Marlene Berger, who survives him.

Henry was educated in St. Albans and then enlisted in the US Army in October of 1956, receiving his honorable discharge in March of 1958. Upon his return to Vermont, he enlisted in the Vermont Army National Guard, receiving his honorable discharge in May of 1963.

He was a well know carpenter throughout this area, having started a construction career at Wright & Morrisey and then set out on his own- he's built a portfolio that ranges across Franklin County and includes several local barns and his own home. To his family he was known as "Mr Fix-It" or "MacGyver" as he was always creatively working on projects. He enjoyed playing the accordion as much as his family loved hearing him play. He was especially proud of his garden, collection of tractors and the time he spent with family and friends.

Survivors include his wife of 59 years, Marlene, of St. Albans; their son, Ricky Garceau; their daughters, Theresa Many and her husband, Allan, of Highgate, Laura Garceau and her significant other, Roger Sartwell, of Highgate, and Shellie Streeter and her husband, Timothy, of Fletcher.
