In Memoriam George O. Carney 12/19/2019  
CARNEY, George Oswald Of Dedham, Massachusetts, passed away on Thursday, December 19th, 2019 at the age of 82. After months of failing health due to complications from Alzheimer's, he died peacefully in his sleep with family by his side.

George was born in Boston on September 14th, 1937 to Florence Louise Oswald and Robert Wallace Carney. He was raised in West Newton, MA until he attended the military institution Norwich University. Upon graduation, George served in the US Army as an officer in West Germany from 1960 to 1962.

George's professional career was in sales working within the early days of computer hardware. He worked with NCR, Sperry Univac and NEC Technologies, until later in life upon retirement when he enjoyed teaching at Greenlodge Elementary School in Dedham, MA. He was a longtime member and past president of the Lions Club in Acton, MA.

George was very proud of his service, especially abroad. He often spoke of his days in Germany, the men he served with, the tanks he drove, and the steins of beer he enjoyed with friends.

George would say his life began when he met the love of his life, Mary Margaret McGillivray (Maggie) in 1967. George didn't leave her side from the moment they met. They married soon after meeting and started a family in Acton, MA to raise their children. He forever referred to Maggie as "his bride" until his dying day.

George was a big fan of Boston sports. He especially loved watching the Patriots and Red Sox, from taking his son to Fenway, fully dressed in baseball gear, to seeing games in Chicago, Oakland, and San Francisco.

George travelled in his retirement, from Maine, Texas, the Grand Canyon, Sequoia National Park, the California Redwoods, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial, to Berlin, Poland, Prague, Scotland and Ireland to visit "the home country."

When he wasn't travelling, George was reading a book about an American president, listening to Frank Sinatra, watching a Gregory Peck film, or a documentary about a favorite memory, which was watching man walk on the moon in 1969.

George was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to everyone. He was a kind, warm man, deeply loved and highly respected. More, he was a classy gentleman who always wore a smile and had something positive to say about everyone.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Margaret (Maggie), his sister Sally and brother Christopher.

Mr. Carney is survived by his daughter Katharine Shea of Portland, ME, son George Carney of San Francisco, brother Robert W. Carney, Jr. of Dedham, MA, and brother James Carney of Vero Beach, FL, his loving grandchildren and extended family.

A Memorial Service will be held on May 2nd in Boston. Memorial donations may be made to the Gosnell Memorial Hospice, 11 Hunnewell Road, Scarborough, ME.

In Memoriam Hal J. Wilkins 9/13/2019  
With his loving family at his side, Hal Joseph Wilkins of Windham, VT died on September 13, 2019 following a short battle with cancer.

He loved a strong IPA, a hike the woods with his beloved Labrador Lilly and a playful philosophical discussion. A wry smile always preceded an amusing insight or gentle grammatical correction. Nature in all her forms inspired Hal's career from his first job in the White Mountains to his final work as a zoning administrator for the villages of Sandgate, Peru, Landgrove and Pawlet, Vermont.

His willingness to help any and everyone earned him many loyal friends and kept him busy with endless projects-much to his wife's chagrin. In his last months Hal learned from family, friends, colleagues and neighbors just how much we valued him. He left this earth knowing how deeply his gifts to us and the planet were appreciated.

Born September 29, 1948, Hal was the son of the late Oliver Woodbury Lull Wilkins and Lou Ramsey Wilkins of Northborough, MA. He attended Bates College in Lewiston, ME, earning his BA in Religious Studies and Philosophy. Later he earned an MBA from Norwich University and continued his studies in Forestry at the University of New Hampshire.

During the course of his life, Hal worked for dozens of businesses and organizations both nationally and internationally. In addition, he ran his own business for 30 years. His work was in his areas of interest that included but were not limited to forestry, logging, construction, engineering, land planning, permitting, education and law enforcement.

Hal served as a selectman in Windham, VT and on several environmental boards. His expertise and counsel were often sought by local and international concerns and altogether these experiences enriched his love for life, education and the earth.

Survivors include his wife of 36 years, Virginia "Missy" Maloney Wilkins of Windham, VT, their children Caitlin Jane Rawson Wilkins of Johnson, VT, and William North Wilkins and his partner, Sarah Rondot, of Warrensburg, MO as well as their infant son, Sidney J. Phillip Rondot, a special joy to his grandfather in his last days. Hal is also survived by his daughters by his first wife, Virginia G. Cave of Phoenix, AZ, Emily Apple Wilkins of Seattle, WA, and Ramsey Beaumont Williams and her husband Joey Williams of Flagstaff, AZ, and stepsons, Ian MacLean, John Dickson and Robert Dickson as well as his devoted sister, Lee Ann Wilkins, of Rutland, MA.

The Wilkins family offers heartfelt thanks to the good people of Windham, Hospice, friends, co-workers and family who have been true sources of strength, humor and love at this time.

In lieu of flowers donations can be given in Hal's name to: "Town of Windham, VT" (to be designated for the operation of the Windham Meeting House, 5976 Windham Hill Road, Windham, VT 05359); SWA Faith and Nature Camp (Dorset Church, PO 263, Dorset, VT 05251); Vermont Natural Resource Council (9 Bailey Ave, Montpelier, VT 05602); or Keep the Whites Wild (

Richard Conz Aquadro, born to Virginia Conz and Mario Aquadro on July 17, 1926 in Northampton, MA, passed away peacefully on December 30th, 2019 surrounded by his loving family sharing great stories in a time of sadness. Richard, better known as "Dick", grew up in Northampton, MA and graduated from Northampton High School in 1944. He entered the NAVY in December 1944, serving in World War II until 1945. Richard went to Williston Academy after the NAVY for a post graduate year then enrolled in Norwich University. He finished his education at MIT graduating in 1952 with a degree in Civil Engineering. Richard then married the love of his life, Marie Lawler and started not only his professional career with Perini Inc., but also his family with his first three daughters being born in Boston. He returned to Northampton in 1954 joining his father and brother in the family construction business, Aquadro & Cerruti, Inc, and rounded out his family with a son and daughter. Today as you drive through Northampton and the surrounding communities you will see some of their work from Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Smith College, Amherst College, Hampshire College, various elementary and high schools, municipality buildings, and projects on the UMASS-Amherst campus. Richard was well-respected throughout the industry and considered fair and honorable by everyone from the tradespeople, to the vendors, to the subcontractors to the engineers, to the architects and to various owners of the many buildings he helped to construct. Richard's strong bond for his community was strengthened during his tenure serving on the Board of the Northampton Co-Operative Bank, currently known as Greenfield/Northampton Co-Operative Bank. He joined the Board in 1972 becoming the Chairman in 1976 and retired from the Board in 2007.

Richard enjoyed skiing with family and friends regularly at Berkshire Snow Basin, and those around him fondly remember him for his beloved ski vacations across the globe. When his family was young, they spent many summers on the shores of Cape Cod with friends. He loved to travel with Marie and bring anyone along that wanted to go. During his later years, he cherished his time in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, where he developed new friendships and opened his house to many visitors. He was an avid reader, especially enjoying historical biographies of political figures. His love of learning never stopped, and he kept up on with the latest technology and was always aware of current affairs, especially pertaining to financial markets. Not to mention, he evolved with the social media era, and his accidental Instagram posts will be greatly missed.

He had intimate bonds with each of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that each will take with them ahead into life. He was genuinely proud of each one of them and kept up with their lives and education, supporting them always.

He is survived by his wife of 68 blissful years, Marie Lawler Aquadro, and his five children Elizabeth Kouri and husband Kevin of Naples, FLA, Alison Gleason and husband Daniel of Leeds, MA, Kimberly Sapienza and husband Thomas of Chelmsford, MA, Richard D. Aquadro and wife Sabra of Northampton, MA, Jennifer Egan and husband James of Walpole, MA.
