WILMINGTON- Steve Lazelle, 71, died peacefully with his family by his side on Thursday October 12, after an extended illness.

Mr. Lazelle was born December 15, 1945 in Bennington, the son of Ray and Nellie (Parsons) Lazelle Sr. In September 1968 he married the love of his life, Mary (Nutting) Lazelle. The couple recently celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary.

A devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, Mr. Lazelle enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially his many morning coffee visits. He worked for the town of Wilmington for over 30 years, retiring in 2003. Earlier jobs included gathering sap, the Brattleboro Retreat, security guard, taxi driver, and pumping gas.

Mr. Lazelle loved driving the back roads looking for wildlife, especially black bears. He loved hunting and walking the woods of Vermont and always had a memory to share whether it was coon hunting with JD, deer hunting with Gary or Beaver or recalling the stories of the big bucks that he had gotten.

Mr. Lazelle is survived by his wife, Mary; sons, John and wife Rachel (Sage) and Edward and wife Jennifer (Comai), and daughter Jennifer Luczynski and husband Kuhrt, all of Wilmington; brother, Ray Jr. (Emma), of Halifax; sister, Judy (Ted) Brown, of Marlboro; nieces, Ethel and Esther, of Brattleboro; and grandchildren, Robin, Rebecca, Skylar, Jessie, Sierra, Jonathan, Rosie (RoRo), and Kuhrt Jr. He also is survived by his aunt, June Parsons, of Wilmington; special cousins, Ken Parsons, of Wilmington, and Gary Sage, of Searsburg; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. And special in his heart was his beloved pug, Toby.

Services will be private and there are no calling hours.

Contributions in Mr. Lazelle’s memory can be made to The American Diabetes Association or Grace Cottage Hospital, c/o Covey, Allen & Shea Funeral Home, PO Box 215, Wilmington, VT 05363.
