Obituary

“There was always love in daddy’s hands.”

Belvidere, Vermont – Roger Howard Coburn, age 80, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 20th 2020.Roger was born October 8th, 1939 to Roger Philip and Ida Ellen (Machia) Coburn of Belvidere. He had fought and won two previous battles with cancer. Heaven just received an amazing man.

Roger was a devoted, loving, caring family man and friend who went above and beyond doing things for his family, friends and community. He was always ready to help anyone who needed it, even if those he helped did not realize it was him coming to their aid. He also showed his love of his country by serving in the Army National Guard.

Roger enjoyed fishing in his childrens’ younger years. He would pack up the kids and head out bull pout fishing. He enjoyed, in his later years, deep sea fishing with his son-in-law Tom, grandson’s Jordan, Jesse & Thomas and great grandchildren as well as ice fishing with his nephews, Austin Barup and Philip Miles. He was also an avid brook fisherman and would take off with his great grandsons. He loved all his grandchildren and great grandchildren so much that it seemed his pain would disappear whenever they were around. He loved to pick on them and his laughter would be contagious. His other favorite past time was gambling and playing “scratch” tickets.

Roger, in his later years, took it upon himself to take care of the headstones of his family members and friends at the Belvidere Cemetery. He also took over the task of caring for the Burroughs Cemetery in Newton Valley with the help of his daughter, Madonna, following the passing of his stepfather, Winford Tanner.

Beside his wife and family, Roger’s other love was trucking. His trucker friends knew him by “The Flying Frenchman” or “Georgia Overdrive”. He drove for several outfits with his last employer being Albert “Juney” Tobin & his son Doug. Roger’s time on the road took him throughout the Eastern United States and Canada where he made friends at nearly every stop along the way. He thought the world of his trucker friends. He also enjoyed sharing the trucking experience with his family, especially his son Roger who was often the unhappy recipient of Roger’s “wet willies”.

It has been so hard to watch such a strong, caring and loving man’s health fail. Daddy will be sorely missed by all.
Roger is survived by his wife, Sandra (Sheltra) of 61 years, his children; Hal Barup and wife Theresa, Barbara Barry and husband Bill, Tammy Robitaille, Susan Langlois and husband Tom, Madonna Coburn, Roger Coburn III and wife Karen, and daughter Lisa Coburn and fiancé Dave, his seventeen grandchildren and several great grandchildren. Roger was predeceased by his parents, his stepfather Winford Tanner; his sisters and their spouses as well as his son-in-law, Robert Robitaille.

Roger’s family would like to thank Home Health, especially his nurse Stephanie, for their care, love and dedication. We would encourage anyone wishing to make a donation in Roger’s memory to donate to this wonderful organization. In addition to Home Health, his daughter Madonna was with him every day always helping just like her daddy.

At this time the family must postpone services but will announce a Celebration of Life as soon as we are able. Please visit awrfh.com to share your memories and condolences.
