Obituary

Cambridge - Charles Mark Blaisdell, passed away unexpectedly at his home on his 68th birthday on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. He was born on January 21, 1952 in Wilmington, Massachusetts son of the late Closson and Harriet (Staveley) Blaisdell. His family moved to VT when he was only 6 months old. The family purchased a dairy farm on Bartlett Hill. School years were at Cambridge, graduating from LUHS in 1970.

He married the love of his life Judy Nolan on Sept. 1, 1973. A day to be remembered in infamy, as his being a firefighter for the Cambridge Fire Dept., he was not above jumping onto the firetruck at his own wedding reception when a fire call went out. (now THAT’s dedication!). A family was started just two years later. The purchase of the first home on Bartlett Hill must have been the right thing to do because he never left the hill.

What can be said about Mark? First and foremost he was a devoted family man. This devotion extended to friends and neighbors. Everyone was family. Mark could be counted on to lend a hand whenever it was needed, no matter who was in need.

In his youth Mark had a passion for muscle cars and snowmobiles. He loved driving anything, whether on 4 wheels or skis. He passed on his automotive knowledge and his work ethic to the next two generations. He was known for having to constantly change the tires on his cars. Which is probably a direct result of the tread mark he left from the Hutchins farm to the Westman farm in Pleasant Valley.

In 1987-88 he and Judy purchased a large portion of the original family farm. He loved walking the property, spending time outside. He eventually built his home on this property and later, his son Adam, also built his home there.

Mark’s career consisted of a number of different occupations from farming and sugaring, working with his father, brother and sister in the family business. He became a business owner, then worked for the Town of Cambridge as a truck driver and at the Cambridge Elementary School as head custodian, school bus coordinator and driver, as well as being a volunteer firefighter for 18 years. He spent the last 20 years at Yipes Inc. as an automobile accessory detailer.

Mark’s immediate family consists of his wife, 3 children and their partners, and 11 grandchildren with partners and 4 great grandchildren. He was the youngest of 6 children and uncle to 23 nieces and nephews. These 23 having a total of 40+ children among them.

Mark was always glad to see you and would greet you with a smile and hug or handshake. He was always glad to meet new people. Mark lived life to the fullest. It was always all or nothing. He worked hard and played harder. Nothing was ever done at half measure.

Mark leaves behind his loving wife of 46 years Judy Blaisdell, two sons Adam Blaisdell and girlfriend Krisie Farrington, Shane Blaisdell and wife Bonnie, a daughter Tamra Wesson and husband Randy, 11 grandchildren, Avery Blaisdell and girlfriend Ella Church, Adam Blaisdell Jr. and wife Taylor, Aaron Blaisdell and Alyas Blaisdell and their mother Tnika Blaisdell, Mariann Kreis, Chelsea (Kreis) Kirk and husband Nate, Zachary Wesson and fiancée Emily Rotax, Courtney Wesson and fiancé Chris Kelly, Ashley, Danica and Jacelyn Wesson, four great grandchildren, James, Joey, Hendrix, Payton, two brothers Kent Blaisdell and wife Martha of Castleton, NY, Brad Blaisdell and wife Joyce of Cambridge, two sisters Beverley Learned of Cambridge, Sally Loura and husband Allen of Barton, two step-brothers Kenneth and Robert Hague, step-sister Sandra Manseau, mother-in-law Arlie (Sweet) Nolan Williamson of Jeffersonville, three brothers-in-law Gary Nolan and wife Shelley of Morrisville, Dale Nolan of Hyde Park, Mark Nolan and wife Marilyn of Burlington. Mark is also survived by many loved nieces, nephews and cousins, great nieces and nephews, great great nieces and nephews, very special friends Pierré and Vicki Donzé and their family.

Mark was also predeceased by his step-mother Edna Blaisdell, sister Wilma (Blaisdell) Nye, niece Stacy (Nye) Langlois, brother-in-law John Learned, step-brother in-law Richard “Dick” Manseau and his father-in-law Neil Nolan.

Judy and Family,
We are so shocked and saddened to hear of Mark's passing. You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this extremely sad time. Mark was such a warm, kind man with a big smile for everyone. He was the kind of man you liked immediately and we have fond memories of chatting with him when our girls played ball together. We hope all of the happy memories of your years together, and knowing that others care, help you through these darkest days.
With our deepest sympathies, Scott and Donna Safford
