Obituary for Shawn P. Barkyoumb

Alburgh – Shawn P. Barkyoumb - age 37 collapsed and died suddenly on Friday, July 19, 2013, doing what he loved most, cutting wood. The heat proved too much that day and Shawn died from Environmental Hyperthermia. Born in St. Albans, on January 8, 1976, he was the son of Paula (Shagoury) Mable and Alan G. Barkyoumb. Shawn loved being outdoors and was a Jack of all trades with an uncanny knack for repairing almost anything. He worked at farming, but found his true passion logging, and his favorite place to be the forest. Shawn was a practical joker with an insurmountable wit, and the ability to spin a story that would leave you laughing. He was a true original and could make a mark on whomever he touched and did. His legacy lies within his most beloved daughter Lexus. Shawn is survived by his fiancée, Jessica Vezina; his daughter, Lexus, and step-son, Logan of Alburgh; father, Alan G. Barkyoumb and his wife, Judy, of Fairfax, mother, Paula Mable, of Highgate Center, grandmother, Ramona Barkyoumb of Hopkinton Massachusetts and his sister, Lori Barkyoumb and her partner Jeff Adams of Georgia and sister, Tammy Barkyoumb Retalic and husband, David, and nephews Tyler and Brendan Retalic of Framingham, Massachusetts. Shawn leaves behind many step brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins. Also survived by future in laws, Lee and Trudy Vezina and Jason Vezina of North Hero and close friends, Randy Morin, Justin Magnan and David Lussier. Relatives and friends are invited to attend calling hours on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM at the Heald Funeral Home, 87 South Main Street, St. Albans. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, July 25th at 1:30 PM at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on the corner of Church and Fairfield Streets in St. Albans. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider contributions to a Trust Fund to be set up for Lexus and Logan, c/o Heald Funeral Home 87 South Main Street, St. Albans, Vermont 05478.
