QUEENSBURY - James W. Hunt, 68, of Queensbury, passed away on May 19, 2021 at his home with his family by his side.

Born on October 17, 1952, in Glens Falls, he was the son of the late Stanley L. and Janet (Walkup) Hunt.

Jim was a graduate of South Glens Falls High School, Class of 1970. He then graduated from Norwich University in 1974 and received a Bachelor of Art's Degree in English and Education.

In 1970, while still in college, he and his father, Stan, started Tree Care by Stan Hunt, Inc., a well-known area firm, which he operated until September 2018, when he retired.

Jim served active duty with the United States Air Force from 1975 until 1980. He received his pilot training at Webb Air Force base in Big Spring, TX. When he returned home, he continued operating the tree care business, of which he became President.

During his military career, Jim also resided in Big Spring, TX and Merced, CA.

On February 23, 1980, he married Belinda Thompson in Caribou, ME.

Still wanting to serve his country, Jim became active in the Air National Guard and became a Pilot in the 109th Air Wing out of Stratton Air National Guard Base, in Schenectady. He was a Command Pilot of LC-130H Aircraft, serving both polar ice caps. In 1997, he flew Sir Edmund Hillary and the New Zealand Prime Minister, the first and only head of state, to ever fly to the South Pole. He was awarded the Meritorious Service with Oak Leaf Cluster and the Air Medal, for his service to our nation.

He was very active in civic endeavors in this area as a member of the Rotary Club in Glens Falls, former Chairman of the Board for LARAC, and former board member of the New York State Arborist Association. He was also a Paul Harris Fellow and a member of Christ Church United Methodist in Glens Falls. Jim enjoyed and actively sponsored the South High Marathon Dance each year.

In Memoriam David W. Anderson 5/18/2021  
David V. Anderson Jr. SOUTH HERO David V. Anderson Jr. passed away peacefully several days after his 90 birthday, surrounded by his family who wished him well with stories and toasts in his memory. Dave was a longtime resident of South Hero, Vermont, in the cottage that he built on Beach Bay in the late-1960s and later converted into his retirement home to spend with his beloved wife, Kay. He continued to live there in the loving care of his family and devoted caregiver, Alyssa, after Kay died last May.

Dave grew up in Montpelier, Vermont, where he dated his wife-to-be in high school, and graduated Norwich University in 1954. After a brief deployment in the Army, he married Kay and moved to South Windsor, Connecticut, where he worked at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft for 34 years and raised his family. He was predeceased by his father and mother, David V. Anderson Sr. and Iola Bagley Anderson; and his wife, Kathryn Ballou Anderson. Dave is survived by his son, Charles Anderson and partner Nathaniel Stevens; his son, Michael Anderson and daughter-in-law Donna Anderson; and granddaughters, Kirsten Anderson and fiancé Will Delaney, and Rebecca Anderson. He is also survived by his sister, Jane Moginot; and his four brothers and their wives, Jon and Joy, Tom and Marie, Roger and Judy, and Chris and Bette Anne.

Dave worked to play, and he spent most of his free time throughout his life enjoying the outdoors in his native Vermont. He was an avid salmon and bass fisherman and duck hunter and enjoyed days on the water with his family or fishing buddies. In the winter, he loved to alpine and cross-country ski, snowshoe and ice fish, and he dragged friends and family alike out on the ice and snow in sub-zero temperatures and we all learned to love it. If he wasn't fishing, afternoons were spent with company on the deck overlooking the lake while sipping scotch and telling fishing stories or recalling adventures from his childhood or 20s.

There was never a dull moment with Dave around - if it was calm, he'd take everyone water skiing or "plugging" for bass; if it was blowing a gale, he'd drag out the Sunfish and set us a-sail; if it was cool, he'd organize badminton or croquet on the lawn. Everyone loved to visit, but everyone also knew there was a high probability of being handed a paintbrush or hammer upon arrival and being told to "work for their supper," or being awoken at 5 a.m. to the cacophony of a skill-saw outside their window.

As they grew up, his brothers and sons' friends referred to South Hero as "camp work," but they never turned down an invitation. In Dave's later years, he learned to enjoy breakfast at noon and the occasional boat cruise, and there was more time spent sitting in the sun on the deck or on the lawn at the Warden's camp or snuggled in a blanket is his recliner in the living room with the heat set to 80.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the South Hero Rescue (www.southherorescue.org); or Norwich University Scholarship Fund (all donations in the name of David V. Anderson are earmarked for this purpose).

No date for a memorial service has been determined at this time.

Arrangements are under the care of Champlain Cremation, A Proud Member of the LaVigne Funeral Home Family.

In Memoriam Bruce E. Montgomery 1/22/2021  
Georgia - Bruce Edward Montgomery, lifelong resident of Franklin County, passed away Friday, January 22nd, 2021 at the UVM Medical Center. Born in St. Albans on March 28th, 1937, he was one of two children of Harold " Monty" and Shirley (Chapin) Montgomery. Bruce was 83 years old.

Bruce was married to Linda Kieselmann for 55 years. Bruce and Linda met while in high school at BFA St. Albans. They dated while Linda finished high school who then went on to UVM for nursing. Bruce attended and graduated from Norwich University. After graduation Bruce served in the Army for a number of years, along with the Reserves. One of his most talked about locations was being stationed at Ft. Eustis in Newport News, Virginia. Both recounted stories of living in Virginia in the early 1960's, those being of friends made, life on base, the political environment of the time, and some shenanigans that might have occurred while there.

After being discharged in 1963, with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, Bruce and Linda moved back to VT. Bruce continued serving in the Reserves and if memory serves us correctly he raised in rank to Captain and worked as a Probation and Parole Officer for many years. After Bruce left Probation and Parole he started a long career with the US Postal Service as a Rural Letter Carrier.

In his younger years, Bruce was an avid outdoorsman, especially hunting. He enjoyed many trips into the woods with his family and sharing his knowledge with them. Summertime was often time for camping, and in later years spending time at Monty and Shirley's camp on Hathaway Point. Bruce was an avid reader and enjoyed sharing his wealth of knowledge of history, especially Civil War Battles, Shakespeare, Family history and so much more.

Bruce is survived by his two children, Christine A. Couture and her husband Bruce of Idaho and John S. Montgomery of Georgia, as well as his three grandchildren, Kyle Couture and his wife Sara of Idaho, and twins Danielle and Megan Couture of Idaho. In addition to his parents and wife, Linda, Bruce was pre-deceased by his sister, Gail Montgomery.

Gone yet not forgotten, Although we are apart, Your spirit lives within me, Forever in my heart.

Eldest of two sons, John was born to John and Mary McIver in Orange, New Jersey. He attended public school in Kearny, New Jersey and graduated from Seton Hall Prep, Class of 1950.

He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Newark College of Engineering in 1954, then began a 56-year career with Boeing (punctuated by two-year stints with the U.S. Air Force and Central Intelligence Agency).

"John L" was a force of nature; dedicated, loyal, and generous, he possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of many subjects, including aviation history, movies, and his beloved New York Yankees. A co-worker described John as "a national treasure," and he was surely a treasure to his family and friends as well.

In Memoriam Donald P. Miller 3/30/2021  
Donald Pryor Miller

Manitowoc - Donald Pryor Miller, 71, died at home March 30, 2021 under the care of his wife Jeanie, son Nathan, and hospice.

Don was born in Long Island, New York, to Kenneth and Dorothy Miller. He grew up in Long Island, and then entered the ROTC at Norwich University in Vermont. With the rank of 1st Lieutenant, Don was a field engineer in Hanau, Germany. It was there that he met Jeanie, who was traveling through Europe. They were married in Hanau in 1973. Don worked many years at Eggers Industries, and after retiring, he worked at Woodland Face Veneer. He was first and foremost a loving husband, father, and friend. Don was such a good man, with a great deal of intelligence, wisdom, a dry sense of humor, and care for others, with the life experience to back it all up. His kindness was evident to those who knew him, and was exemplified by donating a kidney to his brother Bob in 2002. While Don was a soft-spoken man, he had many passions, among them woodworking, gardening, and the Brooklyn Dodgers. He never forgave Peter O'Malley for selling the team and moving it to LA. A set of original seats from Ebbet's Field graces our home. Fly-in fishing trips to remote lakes in Canada became an annual family tradition, as well as trips to California wine country, and then up the coast to Fort Bragg to spend time on the ocean. Two big passions of his were craft beer and good music. Don was connected to both communities through websites like the Beer Advocate and the Trader's Den. He truly enjoyed having a beer with Nate at 3 Sheeps, and making occasional trips to Central Waters. Don was exceptional at taking pleasure in life's simple pleasures.

Survivors include Skipper the dog; Don's wife of 47 years, Jeanie; son, Nathan; two brothers, Jeff, North Carolina, and Bob, New York; brother-in-law, John (Jane) Crowe, Menasha, WI; also nieces, nephews, and friends.

A private gathering to honor and remember Don will be held at a later date. Cremation has taken place at the Harrigan Parkside Crematory and Chapel. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.harriganparksidefuneralhome.com

Danielle from HomeCare Health and Hospice was a gift. Thank you for being such a bright light.

The Harrigan Parkside Funeral Home and Crematory, North 11th and St. Clair streets, Manitowoc is assisting the family with arrangements.

"My dad was…my dad, and he was never better at anything than that, unless it was being a husband to my mom. He taught me so much, even when I wasn't smart enough to get the point right away. Playing catch in the backyard. Baseball. Fishing. Cooking. Talking music, beer, life. He was, and still is, a titan in my world, and I love him so much."

"Being married to Don was more than I could have hoped for out of life. We were so happy. He was so good to me, and for me. Truly, he was the wind beneath my wings. I always loved you, and I always will."
