Obituary for Wilfred A. Root Jr.

Wilfred A. Root Jr.
Fairfax - Wilfred A. Root, Jr., 83, passed away on July 10th in Barton with his loving daughter by his side. He was born on July 2, 1935 to Gertrude (Manning) and Wilfred Root in Johnson and grew up working on the family farm.
Junior, as he was called by most people, took various jobs around the country in his youth – he worked on oil rigs and as a logger out west, and was a coast to coast truck driver, with a story to tell from each adventure. Most recently he made his living as a burner service technician and an electrician. He was always willing to help someone if they lost power or heat, regardless of the time of day or night. Junior will be remembered as a very sociable storyteller who enjoyed playing cards, competing in tractor pulls, singing “good” country music and playing the spoons to his favorite songs.
He leaves his wife, Eunice Root of Fairfax; his daughter, Pamela O’Neil of Eden and his son, Kevin Root of Eden; his step-daughter, Robin Castle of Barre; half-siblings, Linda Labrie of East Barre and Bill Hadley of Crockett, Texas; three beloved grandchildren, Autumn, Andrew, and Devin O’Neil; his brother-in-law, Truman Breshears of Alstead, New Hampshire; many other relatives including an Aunt, cousins, nieces, and nephews; and his darling cat. He is predeceased by his parents and two sisters, Katherine Brien and Virginia Breshears.
Donations in his memory may be sent to the Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. A memorial service will take place at a later date. The family invites you to share your memories and condolences by visiting www.awrfh.com.
