Anyone who met Bill could immediately tell where he was from by his unmistakable Boston accent. He grew up in Danvers, Massachusetts where he attended Holten High School. He obtained his bachelor's degree from Norwich University in Vermont and then served in the United States Army for two years. He then embarked on his lifelong career as a Federal Agent for the US Immigration and Naturalization Service. On January 13th, 1968, Bill married the love of his life, Maureen Cecelia Lang (Higgins).

He always enjoyed a good conversation with people as anyone who encountered him at the Burlington Post Office/Courthouse in his post-retirement job as a court security officer could attest. His friendly demeanor, quick smile, and good sense of humor put people at ease. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his four wonderful grandchildren, Megan and Lauren Hendy, and AJ and Brady Lang.

Bill's impact on his community was evidenced by his award from the Mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, designating March 12th,1976 as William R. Lang, Jr. Day in the City of Hartford.

In Memoriam Diana L. Collins 5/31/2022  
Springfield, VT - Diana L. Collins (nee Garvin), born August 6th, 1943, died on May 31st, 2022.

Diana, born in Rahway, NJ to Lester and Barbara Garvin spent her childhood in Argentina and Venezuela. She attended Vermont College and Norwich University, where she received degrees in nursing. She worked as a nurse for over 40 years, serving her community with care and compassion.

Diana loved milanesas con papas fritas and halvah - something she apparently passed on, as she had to hide them from the rest of the family. She learned to swim at three and retained a love of the water; teaching her children and grandchildren to swim.

Diana, an Episcopal Deacon, spent her life in service to others. She traveled extensively and often combined her love of travel with helping others. She participated as both a nurse and translator for medical missions in Central America and volunteered at the Lamb Institute in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. She maintained a sense of adventure and joy throughout her life and was always striving to make the world a better place, as evidenced by driving a big blue school bus from Chelsea, Vermont to Tegucigalpa because the students at Lamb needed a bus.

Her generosity was boundless and shared with her family, friends, and community. Her hobbies included soap making, needle felting, and gardening. She was a lifelong knitter and used her skill and yarn to make hats for the swap shop in Springfield, so everyone could access warm and beautiful things.

Diana's love for her family was endless and provided an anchor for us all. She is survived by her husband, Christian Collins, and children, Michael, Patricia, and Cathy. She loved her grandchildren, Eben, Hayden, Apollo, and Nash, and siblings, Larry Garvin, Judith Stoodley, Alice Hebert, and John Garvin. She is pre-deceased by her parents, Lester and Barbara Nash Garvin and Shirley Little Garvin.

A celebration of Diana's life will be held on July 20th, 2022 at St. Paul's Church in White River Junction, VT at 11:00. If so inclined, Diana would love donations to the Lamb Institute in lieu of flowers.

In Memoriam Robert W. Christie 7/11/2022  
Robert William Christie died peacefully at his home in Hanover, N.H., on July 11, 2022, surrounded by his five children.

Bob was born in Mineola, N.Y., on September 22, 1923, to George Robert Christie and Elathene Ensko Christie. He spent his childhood in Freeport, N.Y., where he learned to love the ocean and spent hours sailing on Long Island Sound.

Bob attended Norwich University, Class of 1944, graduating in 1947 following his service in World War II. His military experience was in the European Theater of Operations. He joined the 33rd Armored Regiment of the 3rd Armored Division at the beginning of the Ardennes Offensive, the so-called Battle of the Bulge. His combat service was as a platoon leader, and eventually a company commander in a medium tank battalion, and he earned a bronze star for leadership under fire. He described his speedy rise to company commander status as having much to do with the 300% attrition in men and equipment the 3rd Armored Division experienced going ashore in Normandy. He confessed to having felt neither brave nor heroic, and to usually being scared to death.

Bob went to SUNY Downstate School of Medicine on the GI bill and married Nancy Platou in 1948. He and Nancy raised five children. Bob started his medical career in general practice in Northfield, Vt. He did a Fellowship in Pathology at Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Hanover, followed by stints at Brookhaven National Laboratory, National Institutes of Health, and as a pathologist at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Ind.

In 1955 he served as medical officer for a five-month expedition of the Snow, Ice, and Permafrost Establishment (SPIRE) studying the stratigraphy of the Greenland Ice Cap. Bob and Nancy moved their family to Lancaster, New Hampshire in 1961, where Bob established a pathology group practice that brought modern laboratory services to eight rural hospitals.

Bob was a firm believer in public service and made his mark on the community serving as chairman of the regional school board, a lay minister and member of the vestry at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, member of the Connecticut River Joint Commission, Trustee of Norwich University, and by establishing funds benefiting the North Country Chamber Players, youth literacy initiatives, and local conservation efforts.

He served two rotations as a volunteer pathologist on SS HOPE, the retired Navy hospital ship that brought medical care to third world countries. A lifelong learner, he received a BGS from Granite State College and honorary DGS from Norwich.

Bob loved classical music and jazz, faithful dogs, painting, good Scotch, writing, "Bert and I" stories, gardening, skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, and anything that meant connecting with the great outdoors. He raised his children to hike, camp, sail, and love the mountains.

He cherished large holiday gatherings with his children and grandchildren, never missed a dessert or opportunity to vote. Bob moved to Kendal in Hanover, NH, in 2007, a community he adored, and spent much of the latter part of his life traveling, teaching, taking courses, and speaking out about his greatest concern: the unchecked human role in climate change. He felt strongly that every person can make a positive change in the world and is called to do so. He will be greatly missed.

Bob was predeceased by his parents, George and Elathene Christie, his brother, George Robert Christie, Jr. (Jed), and former wives Nancy, Rita, and Connie. He leaves sons Rob and Colin Christie (Carole) of Lancaster, daughter Sheelah MacKillop of Jefferson, daughters Bonnie Christie and Emilie Christie Burack (Tom) of Hopkinton, grandchildren Clayton Christie of Bradford, Elise St. Cyr of Northumberland, Ian Meier of Durango, Colo., Hannah Meier of Jackson Hole, Wyo., Margaret Christie of New York, NY, Page and Ron MacKillop of Jefferson, Brooke MacKillop of Dalton, Larsen and Beatrice Burack of Hopkinton, and great-grandchildren Colton and Alden St. Cyr of Northumberland.

A memorial service will be held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Lancaster on July 30 at 11 a.m. The family wishes to thank Dr. Linda Dacey and the staff at Kendal who treated Bob with care, dignity, and grace. Those wishing to remember Bob are invited to send donations to CLiF- the Children's Literacy Foundation, 1536 Loomis Hill Road, Waterbury Center, VT 05677.

In Memoriam David C. Kobrin 7/6/2022  
David Culman Kobrin died peacefully Wednesday, July 6, 2022, after a courageous battle against Parkinson's disease. He was 80 years old. Ambitious, adventurous and playful, David inspired those around him to laugh, be silly and embrace challenges.

Born to Louis and Ida Kobrin in Lynn, Mass., in 1941, he began his life as a Red Sox fan. David attended Norwich University and then Boston University School of Law. It was there that he met Marjorie, the love of his life and wife of 55 years. They married and moved to Oklahoma and then South Korea to fulfill David's duties as a captain in the U.S. Army. Upon returning to the states, David and Marjorie settled in Mt. Kisco, N.Y., where David became a practicing attorney and a Yankees fan. It was in New York where he and Marjorie began their family; David and Marjorie had three daughters. Each one was a daddy's girl in her own special way. A kind, caring husband and father, David instilled the same hope for his daughters, "For if you have what I have, then you have everything." David maintained strong connections with many members of his extended family, and he cherished playing a significant role in the lives of his nieces and nephews.

David led an active life. He loved to travel, speak other languages and try new things. He picked up the guitar during middle age and re-engaged in sailing as a retiree. A skier, golfer and squash player, he utilized his love of activity to fight Parkinson's in the only way he knew how, by dedicating himself to exercise. David stayed active until the very end, never giving up, for "falling apart is not an option," he would say in reflection of his circumstances.

David was a writer and a poet, active in the Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild. He tutored Hebrew to students training for their bar and bat mitzvahs in Westchester, N.Y., and Seaside Jewish Community in Rehoboth, including his two granddaughters.

David taught many significant things to those around him. He showed us how to make mistakes and grow from them. He showed us what love looks like and how to maintain a loving relationship. He helped us to stop and appreciate the world; whether from the top of a chairlift or the shore of an ocean: "One, two, three, ahhhhh," we would say, to take in the beauty of the world.

David is survived by his wife, Marjorie; their three daughters and their partners: Jennifer and David, Lauren and Chris and Shoshana, and Ethan; and his grandchildren: Kiley, Emerson and Ryder. His love, humor and spirit will remain strong in all of them. A man of many words, there are no words to describe this loss for his family. David, may you be at peace; may the four winds blow you safely home.

A funeral service will be held at noon, Sunday, July 10, at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Atkins-Lodge Chapel, 16961 Kings Hwy., Lewes. Interment will follow the service at St. Peter's Cemetery, Pilottown Road, Lewes.

All are invited to join the service via livestream by visiting:

In Memoriam Phyllis C. Murphy 6/16/2022  
NORTHFIELD - Phyllis Claire Murphy, 76, died Thursday, June 16, 2022 at the Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin. She was born in Burlington on September 6, 1945, the daughter of Richard & Dolores (Tremblay) Duell. She is a graduate of Burlington High School, class of 1963. She went on to earn two Bachelor degrees, an Accounting degree from the University of Vermont in 1978 and a Computer Science degree from Norwich University in 1987.

She married the love of her life, Col. Michael C. Murphy on February 13, 1965 in St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Burlington. They lived in Moretown from 1966, until they moved to their home in Northfield in 1977. Michael predeceased her in 2002.

Phyllis grew up in a part of Burlington, known as Lakeside. She lived in a two room upstairs apartment, above her Aunt Rose and Uncle George. The neighborhood was of modest means, and things were not easy, nonetheless, Phyllis enjoyed playing, and rough housing with neighborhood children, which sometimes led to fights where she had to learn to hold her own. To relax, she would take walks down to Lake Champlain to watch the sunsets spill into the night sky. On cloudy days she put her face to the wind and enjoyed the rush of incoming storms. With both parents working to make ends meet she took on much of the household responsibilities and learned cooking from her Aunt Rose, Mother and other ladies in the community. The tight knit nature of this upbringing brought her into contact with her lifelong love Michael, they were married a little over a year after she graduated high school.

After a brief time in Texas where she gave birth to her first son George, Mike and Phyllis moved back to Vermont, where they had a second son, Sean. They owned and operated a beef farm in Northfield, which she operated for the remainder of her life. Phyllis loved her job as a homemaker, but also received two degrees while raising the family. Her love of family, education, hard work, and the bonds of friendship never wavered throughout her life. Reading a good book, being with friends, appreciating the nature around her or watching a movie with a good glass of Scotch were all favorite pastimes of hers once all the day's work was done. She did work outside the home, briefly working for TDS Telecom in Northfield. Family and the land was where her heart was.

The loss of Michael hit Phyllis hard. He passed just after their 37th anniversary. Their love was the kind of love that makes anyone who witnessed it smile. It was without bumps or edges. The simple perfection of two people that merged to one, unbreakable against the withering of the ages.

After Michael's passing she put her energy into many other local efforts. She for worked for the town paper, as a town lister, and managed a memorial fund in Michael's name for Norwich University. She was a member of the Vermont 251 Club, and continued to be an advocate for animals of all kinds. Her precious Angus that she had farmed with Mike for so many years became some of the oldest cattle veterinarians in the area had treated.

Her husband's loss was never far from her heart. To alleviate having so much kindness with no place to put it, Phyllis volunteered for many activities, where helping others was the goal, often assisting people in need, most anonymously. It was doing these things that gave her some peace.

We lost her suddenly and unexpectedly, but our love goes with her, unbreakable and everlasting.

She is survived by two sons George (Beth) Murphy of Milford, MA and their children, James Cruz, Kylen Cruz, Tara Murphy, Kathryn Cruz, Isabella Aguiar; Sean (Lori) Murphy of Milford, NH and their children, Michael Sean Murphy, Brian Wayne Murphy; sister in-law, Mary Murphy (Edward) Blake of Moretown; brother in-law, James (Candace) Murphy of Hooksett, NH; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband of 37 years, Michael, she is predeceased by her twin sister, Anne Granger, two brothers, Robert and Richard Duell.

Calling hours will be held, Friday, July 22nd from 6-8 p.m. at the Kingston Funeral Home, 35 Slate Avenue, Northfield, VT. A funeral to celebrate her life will be held Saturday July 23rd at 11 a.m. at the White Memorial Chapel at Norwich University, followed by burial in the Mountain View Cemetery in Moretown. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to one of Phyllis's favorite charities, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-995

Together they raised their daughters, Elisabeth and Maureen, who were the pride and joy of his life.

He was an active member of VFW Post 9511.

In Memoriam Richard F. Murphy 6/16/2022  
Richard "Dick" F. Murphy died on June 16, 2022 at Baystate Medical Center with his loving wife and son by his side after a short illness. Dick was predeceased by his parents, Agnes (Devine) and John H. Murphy, and his infant son, Timothy John. Dick was a 1964 graduate of Cathedral High School. He went on to graduate from Norwich University and received his MBA from C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University.
One of the best amateur golfers in the area, Dick was known as Mr. Four Ball, having won fifty during the span of his competitive career. With longtime golf partner Ron Goldsmith, he won twenty-five two-ball tournaments. Dick was a two-time New England Public Links Champion, won five Western Mass. Amateur contests, and was Club Champion at Franconia GC eight times. Dick started playing at the age of 13 at Franconia GC with a fun loving group that became life-long friends. With more youthful energy than money, they were known to sneak on the back nine and play from dawn to dusk, most of the time completing 54 holes. In 2007, it was his great honor to be inducted into the Western Mass Golf Hall of Fame. Four years ago, he attended the Master's Tournament at Augusta National. It was the trip of a lifetime, made even better by sharing the experience with Greg.

When he was no longer competitive, later years were spent with summer Sundays at the beach. He wasn't particularly fond of the beach but it was his wife Patty's happy place, and the promise of his favorite seafood platter at the end of the day was too much to resist.

Dick leaves behind his two great loves, his wife Patty (Albano) and son Gregory; his best friend of over sixty years, Ira Kowarsky; his brother John Murphy; sister-in-law Tina McLaughlin and her husband John; brother-in-law Anthony Albano and his wife Aimee; cousins, Katherine Smith and Judith Manferdini Smith, and four nephews. Dick also leaves his BathFitter family including Jason and Dana Cusimano.

Family and friends are invited to gather on Thursday, June 23, 2022 from 4 - 7 PM at Forastiere Smith Funeral & Cremation, 220 North Main Street, East Longmeadow, MA. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 10 AM at the funeral home followed by committal services at St. Michael's Cemetery, State Street, Springfield.
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society, 30 Speen Street, Framingham, MA 01701. For more information or to leave an online condolence, please visit

In Memoriam Cecil C. Sutherland 6/2/2022  
Cecil Charles Sutherland, 68, passed away on June 2nd, 2022 after a four year battle with pancreatic cancer. Cecil was born to Cecil C Sutherland and Arline Sano Sutherland on February 25th, 1954 at Hamilton Air Force Base in California. Cecil graduated from Chicopee High School in Chicopee Massachusetts in 1972 and from Norwich University in 1976 with a Bachelor's of Physical Education. He was commissioned into the United States Air Force where he became a Minuteman Missile Launch Officer in Grand Forks, North Dakota. It was at this duty station where he met the love of his life and future wife, Carla, on a blind date. They were married on November 29, 1980. Cecil cross-trained into Disaster Preparedness and was stationed in Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. Cecil concluded his Air Force career with his last duty assignment at Hill Air Force Base in Utah.

After his separation from the Air Force, he joined the US Postal Service and became a staunch supporter of his wife's military career. When his wife's career brought her to Colorado Springs in 1994, he also transferred there with the Post Office. He enjoyed telling people he was a "dependent husband". He retired after 29 years, most as a Letter Box Mechanic.

He never met a sport he didn't like, but was especially passionate about football and hockey. He was a life-long, die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, no matter how bad of a year they were having, including the 1989 1-15 season. He could be counted on to be at every USAFA football home game no matter the weather, and at every Colorado College hockey home game. He loved to travel and experience new cultures and foods. He was a kind, loving man who loved cooking, good food and searching out interesting restaurants wherever he went.

Cecil was preceded in death by his parents and brother Mitsuako.

Cecil is survived by wife of 41 years, Carla, sisters Mary Sutherland and Nancy (Bob) Ross, niece Jennie Ford, nephews Christopher, Joseph and Paul Coulter, and 18 great-nieces and nephews. Throughout his life, Cecil was blessed to gain additional family in the form of deep and enduring friendships with Ed Dalley, Michele Campbell, Rachel Garrison, and his bonus nephews, Hunter and Julian Spier.

In keeping with Cecil's wishes the funeral will be private. Inurnment will be at Pikes Peak National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care on Cecil's behalf.
