In Memoriam Barbara A. Savage 5/9/2020  
Barbara Savage passed away peacefully Saturday, May 9, 2020 in her residence at Carriage Green Assisted Living in Milford.

Barbara was born December 6, 1932, the only child of William A. and Dorothy B. Jones of Bridgeport. She spent her childhood growing up in Connecticut and a fondly remembered time on a farm in Illinois. She graduated from Vermont college. Returning to Bridgeport, she worked at Bridgeport Hospital where a spunky co-worker, Jean Savage fixed her up on a date with her brother Edward Savage who would become the love of her life. Married in 1955 they moved to Shelton Ct where they had two boys, David and Robert, the raising of which would greatly accelerate the perpetuation of grey hair in them both. She enjoyed many family trips to Williamsburg Va., mostly traveling in a VW bus that never really was able to sustain speeds over 50mph. Returning to work in the 70's Barbara was a long-time employee of Reads Dept. store. After the passing of her husband Edward she enjoyed travel and spending time with her dear friends Dot and Martha. Later in life she enjoyed the friendship of her caretaker, and kindred spirit Amy.

In Memoriam Dwight A. Davis 5/11/2020  
Dwight Andrew Davis passed away on Monday, May 11, 2020 at the age of 87 after a hospitalization at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital. He can now rejoin his wife of over 66 years, Arlene Caroline Davis, who died on March 1.

Dwight was born in Island Pond, Vermont on September 29, 1932, one of three children born to Olga and Crawford Davis. He moved to East Burke in 1935, where he recalled growing up during the World War II era saying "East Burke was the greatest place a kid could ever live." In 1946, he entered Lyndon Institute (LI) where he met his high school sweetheart, Arlene, who he would marry in 1953.

A four-year scholarship at Norwich University launched Dwight's distinguished 22-year career in the United States Army. The young couple left the Northeast Kingdom for Fort Knox in 1955, and would move 17 more times across the U.S. and Europe with their children: Faye, Paula and Michael. Dwight attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California where he learned Arabic and was subsequently sent to Saudi Arabia as an advisor to the Royal Saudi Armor Corp in the early 1960s. He was stationed in Naples, Italy beginning in 1966, where he worked as an Operations Officer at NATO Headquarters. From there, he was deployed to Vietnam where he served as an advisor for a Vietnamese battalion during the Tet Offensive. He served on the faculty at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth from 1970-1972, before becoming the Commanding Officer of the 5th Battalion 2nd Brigade in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. His final post was the Pentagon, as Operations Officer in the Office of the Deputy Chief where he supported efforts to evacuate personnel from Saigon, including Operation Babylift. Dwight met several of these refugees by chance in later life and their subsequent successes were always fondly remembered. Dwight received numerous commendations while serving his country, including the Silver Star with Cross of Gallantry, Bronze Star Medal, and Distinguished Flying Cross.

After retiring from the Army in 1976, Dwight returned to Vermont and over the next five years obtained a master's degree and served as a guidance counselor and vocational director at Lyndon Institute. While considering a doctoral degree program at Boston University (BU) he was offered the Operations Director position for BU's overseas graduate programs. Arlene would also work for BU recruiting undergraduate students for the Boston campus. The couple headed to Europe once more where their work would keep them traveling for the next seven years.

On their return in 1988, Dwight was recruited as the first Development Director for Lyndon Institute and he was appointed Headmaster six months later. He continued to pursue development opportunities for the school and led a capital campaign at the same time. The LI campus underwent significant expansion during his tenure in the 1990's as enrollment increased, adding much-needed classroom and administrative office space, and a new softball field. A new academic building, Daniels Hall, was constructed to house the math department. Dwight expanded and diversified the vocational programs, working with local businesses to increase mentorships and employment opportunities for graduates. The international dormitory program was also expanded. While at LI, Dwight was inducted into the Who's Who of Executives for the State of Vermont, and in 1996 he received the Robert F. Pierce Vermont Secondary Principal of the Year Award. He retired as Headmaster in 1999, but continued to serve his alma mater in several capacities, including Lyndon Institute Corporator and President of the Lyndon Institute Alumni Association of which he was a life member. Dwight's ever-true Viking spirit carried on whether visiting with students, faculty, staff and community members or being spotted at the games played on LI's home field. A long-time faculty member recalls him saying "We wear maroon and white not just on our sleeves, but in our hearts." A frequent sighting was in box seats at Thompson Cottage, home of the Alumni Association and the LI Museum, where Arlene spent considerable time organizing decades of school historical information.

After retiring from LI, Dwight served as the first-ever Executive Director of the Vermont Independent Schools' Association, a position he held during the administration of Governor Jim Douglas. As Executive Director he laid the groundwork for the organization, which lobbies in support of the State's extensive private schools. His work with the Douglas administration included building a high school program to assist adult inmates by providing risk-reducing interventions within the Vermont Department of Corrections. His leadership was instrumental in the successful accreditation process for what is known as Community High School of Vermont (CHSVT) that maintains campuses throughout the State system. He served on the CHSVT Board until 2011 and was ultimately honored for his service, ability to tackle political issues head on, and his unwavering tenacity and love for the school and its students. Dwight fully retired from volunteer board positions, including the Union Bank Regional Board, in 2013.

Recent years afforded Dwight more time to spend at their much-loved stone home in East Burke where he tended his trout pond, spoiled their Jack Russell terriers, and enjoyed unrivaled views of Burke Mountain over the breakfast table. Dwight made time for target and skeet shooting at his camp in Kirby and occasionally fly fishing. He and Arlene especially loved times when family gathered to watch old family movies and reminisce about their world adventures.
Dwight is survived by daughters Faye Winters, of Brandon, MS, and Paula Gabrault, of Cosby, MO; son Michael Davis, of Westport, MA; seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren; brother Jack Davis, of East Burke, VT; and younger sister Jean Bailey, of Newark, VT.

A family joint burial service will take place on June 22, 2020. The Guibord-Pearsons Funeral Home has been entrusted with arrangements. Memories and condolences can be shared at The family welcomes donations to Lyndon Institute as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers, where a classroom will be named in Dwight's honor. Gifts in remembrance of Dwight may be sent to: Lyndon Institute Development Office, PO Box 127, Lyndon Center, VT 05850

In Memoriam Robert A. Morse 4/22/2020  
Robert Armstrong Morse II, 73, of Amesbury, MA, cherished husband, father, grandfather, son-in-law, nephew, brother, cousin, uncle and friend passed away on April 22, 2020. Born in Hartford, Conn. on May 31, 1946, Bob was the son of the late Mildred (King) Morse and Robert Armstrong Morse.

Bob was raised in Enfield, Conn. He was proud of his family roots and grew up with a strong work ethic and passion for farming inspired by his families in Connecticut and Nova Scotia. These skills were passed along and the Morse family garden on Middle Road was always plentiful. His passion for the outdoors and for the way things worked grew as he achieved Eagle Scout Honors in Boy Scout Troop 108 of Hazardville, Conn. Bob attended the Enfield Public Schools where he met his loving wife of 53 years, Paulette (Sevarino) Morse. Together, they enjoyed their teenage years as high school sweethearts working on tobacco farms, going on adventurous dates, and bobsledding at tremendous speeds. Bob continued his education at Norwich University in Vermont and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He and Paulette then moved to Amesbury, MA, where they raised their family, restored their beautiful home and planted a garden of their own.

Bob built a distinguished thirty-eight year career at General Electric (GE) in Lynn, MA. Bob's contributions spanned many critical programs as chief design and structural engineer for the A-10 Thunderbolt II (TF34), Tornado F3, Bombardier CRJ (CF34), F-14 Tomcat (F110), F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter (F404), Helicopter (CT7) and the M1 Tank (LV100) and began a Cargolifter Program (CF6) before retiring. Bob was granted top government security clearance for Military Defense and was recognized for his contributions with numerous awards. Most notably, he designed and tested the first ever GE FAA approved blade out test with an aluminum and kevlar honeycomb housing for the CF34 that he championed. His innovative design continues to thrive decades later in today's industry on many commercial flights with the highest thrust-to-weight ratio, providing smooth, safe and quiet flights.

Bob was not only a standout at work, but also at home. He built a play yard for his daughters, came home early for a catch, and was a ski instructor at Bradford Ski Area, his family's second home during the winter. Summer vacations were spent creating memories while camping on Lake Winnipesaukee with his family, his sisters, and their families. He also shared his passion for photography, archery and golf with his daughters. Bob loved boating off the dock he built. For over 20 years, the dock drew friends and family together. Waterskiing, tubing and fishing on the Merrimack River with his children and grandchildren were moments he treasured. After retiring, Bob traveled abroad with his wife Paulette and visited all 50 States. He attended GE Old Timers meetings and continued gardening. He also designed and built his own woodworking workshop where he meticulously crafted Windsor Chairs and other masterpieces. He and Paulette avidly followed their favorite Boston sports teams as true fanatics. Seeing his beloved Red Sox finally win the World Series four times was a dream come true.

Bob loved being a father and was thrilled to have two sons-in-law. His generosity was unending. He enjoyed sharing his wisdom, teaching them new skills, and relaxing over a drink and a cigar. Bob's grandchildren were his greatest pride and joy. He always made them laugh while teaching them new perspectives that often were adventurous and a bit mischievous. Bob was a grand fixture at all family holidays, birthdays, school and sporting events big and small throughout their lives. This brought him endless joy.

Bob is survived by the love of his life and best friend Paulette (Sevarino) Morse, his cherished daughters, Allison (Morse) Stone and her husband Kevin Stone of Natick, MA and Melissa (Morse) Carrington and her husband Jeffrey Carrington of Orange, CT and five treasured grandchildren Samantha, Jacob, Benjamin, Natalie and Grace. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Joanne Sevarino of West Hartford, CT predeceased by her husband Paul Sevarino, his Aunt Anna Mae (King) Dockery of Glastonbury, Conn. predeceased by her husband William Dockery, and his beloved sisters Susan (Morse) Cromie and her husband Fred Cromie of Hebron, Conn., and Deborah (Morse) Gayner of Portsmouth, NH and her longtime significant other Dr. William Maykel of Paxton, MA., his brothers-in-law and their spouses, attorney Angelo and Jean Sevarino of Broad Brook, CT and physician Kevin and Kim Sevarino of Cheshire, CT along with many adored nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, cousins, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

The family would like to thank Dr. Denise Hirsh and her team for over thirty years of superior cardiac care, Dr. Stephen Schissel PCP, and the entire team at Fresenius Kidney Care of Newburyport for their warmth and compassion to both Bob and Paulette for the past four years.

In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to plant a tree as A Living Tribute. Please visit:

Arrangements will be entrusted to Paul C. Rogers Funeral Home 2 Hillside Ave, Amesbury, MA 01913. A private burial will be held and Celebration of Bob's Life will be announced at a later date.

A story of Barbara's journey as an artist was featured in Yankee magazine. Her paintings decorate the walls of her many friends and relatives. Her artwork often spoke of the history of her beloved towns of Windsor and Groton Long Point. She played tennis and skied like a pro into her eighties.

The full life that she and Walt lived together was an inspiration to those lucky enough to have known them. She will be missed by her family and others whose lives she touched. Her husband Walt passed away 5 years ago.

In addition to devoting his time to the Guard, Brian was employed as Marketplace Operations Manager at Nike in Beaverton, Oregon, where he worked until his passing. Brian brought to Nike unique specialized talents and experience, which inspired Nike to revise their US Military Leave Program to provide up to twelve weeks of paid time off every twelve months so full-time employees could continue to serve our country.

Brian had a passion for the outdoors and shared this with his wife Rachelle and their children Maggie and Henry, always including his favorite hound Hank. At home, Brian developed brilliant woodworking skills.

Brian was pre-deceased by his brother Timothy (Tim). His wife Rachelle, their children Maggie and Henry, his parents Barbara and Harry, his maternal grandmother Sienie McGuire, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends will greatly miss him.

In Memoriam George Hadgigeorge 3/15/2020  
Mountain Lakes, NH George Hadgigeorge of 349 White Mountain Rd died on March 15 th at his home surrounded by his family after his lengthy battle with Parkinson's Disease.

George was born on July 13th, 1935 in Tsaritsani, Greece to Yianni and Efthalia Hadgigeorge. George lived in Laryssa, Greece during his childhood years with his parents, his brother Steve, and sisters Bessy and Evelyn. When he was a teenager he moved with his family to the U.S, and they settled in Manchester, NH.

George attended Norwich University Military College as a cadet and excelled in Mathematics. He was also a stellar performer on the soccer field for the Norwich Cadets. He graduated from Norwich in 1960 and fulfilled his military obligation as a unit tank commander at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

After his honorable discharge from the Army, George was hired at the Defense Mapping Agency in Washington, D.C. Shortly after being hired, George married Anna Gravanis from Haverhill, MA, originally from Tsaritsani, Greece. A few years later, George took a job as a geodesist at the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, MA. He and Anna moved to Lowell, MA and started their family. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Tewksbury, MA where they raised their 2 daughters, Thalia and Mary, and lived there until George retired from civil service at the young age of 50.

As a geodesist, George was published countless times for his work in utilizing satellite altimeter measurements in geodesy and gravity field determination. In June of 1982, George won the prestigious Research and Development Special Award from the Defense Mapping Agency in Washington, D.C. for his work in utilizing various mathematical techniques to determine the global geoid and earth's gravity field. His achievements in geoidal and gravity field determination were ultimately utilized in guidance systems to enhance missile accuracy for the U.S. Air Force.

Upon retirement, George and Anna settled in their vacation home in Mountain Lakes, NH and sold their home in Tewksbury, MA. Subsequently, George and Anna purchased an oceanfront, 7 th floor condo in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They dubbed their condo Thalassa (meaning Sea in Greek). They had the best of both worlds for many years as they spent the colder months at Thalassa and would head back to the Greek's Nest in Mountain Lakes after mud season to enjoy the spring, summer, and fall.

George was always happiest around his family and would relish family visits to either of his homes. Every July 4 th George would cook a lamb on his custom spit for the family celebration in Mountain Lakes. He loved cooking on his grill for his family and friends and was known to sip an Ouzo or two, especially during family celebrations. George was a lover of Greek music and was known to blare it from his speakers sitting outside on his dock in NH. He was a talented Greek dancer and would display his rare talents at weddings, home, or work Christmas parties. He may have even been found dancing on a table or two, should the spirit move him!

Wherever he was, at work or in his personal life, George had a magnetic personality. People just wanted to be near him, as he was a unique soul with a generous heart that matched his love of life. George was the epitome of class, style, and confidence. Maria, his granddaughter, referred to him as the magic in our family . George was a man's man who was appreciated and respected by men and women alike. George had dashing good looks and when anyone complimented him on his hair or appearance he'd simply respond by saying " I know. "

George (also known as Papou to his grandchildren) will be lovingly missed by his wife Anna, daughter and son-in-law Thalia and Bob Bessette of Mountain Lakes, daughter Mary Houde of Mountain Lakes, his granddaughters and their partners, Lianna Bessette and Scott Stelter of Arlington, MA, Maria Bessette and Jesse Tarnas of Providence, RI, and grandson Antonio Houde of Mountain Lakes. He is predeceased by his brother Steve of Palm Beach, FL and sister Bessy Romaides of Manchester, NH and Volos, Greece. He is survived by his sister Evelyn and husband Tash Dovas of Hampton, NH, Claire and Nestor Tzouros of Needham, MA, Nick and Esther Gravanis of Easton, CT, Eva Gravanis of Toronto, Canada, Eleni Hadgigeorge of Palm Beach, FL and countless nieces and nephews.
