With his family by his side, Joseph E.G. Fortin, 71, of North Troy, Vt., left this world peacefully on July 10, 2020 in Newport, Vt. Joe was born on March 19, 1949 to Roland and Columbe Fortin in Holland, Vt. After high school, Joe entered the United States Army (1969-1975), and following an Honorable Discharge, he met the love of his life, Lillian (Labbee) Fortin, and they were married on September 8, 1973. They enjoyed 46 years of married life together which included their numerous motorcycle rides, and many pets, especially, cats Olaf and Chico, and the most recent additions, granddogs, Bentley and Bailey. He also enjoyed many ATV adventures with his son, Kevin when he was not on duty for VTRANS where he was employed for 30 years.

He leaves behind his loving wife, Lillian Fortin, and his son, Kevin Fortin and wife, Carrie, all of North Troy, Vt. Joe also is survived by his brothers, Rosaire Fortin and wife Brenda of Derby, Vt., as well as Gilles Fortin and wife, Mary of Chazy, NY., and one sister, Francine Martin and husband Earl of Island Pond, Vt. Joseph also leaves to mourn aunts, uncles, many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Joe will also be missed by special friends, Linda Meunier and Wayne Lucas, as well as his loving pets.

He was predeceased by his parents, Roland and Columbe Fortin, by his sister, Rolande, and brothers, Norman and Andre Fortin.

The family would like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Rachel DiSanto, the staff at Family Practice, as well as the staff at North Country Hospital and Missisquoi Ambulance service for the wonderful care Joe received while under their care. The family would like to also extend their gratitude to nurse Amber of the Visiting Nurses Association for the excellent care, kindness, compassion, and support showed to both Joe and Lillian so that Joe could remain at home.

Services will be held privately at a later date, and at the convenience of the family. Please visit to share your memories and condolences.

Lillian, Kevin, Joe's brothers and sisters (in-laws), my deepest Sympathies. Time has passed now, and hopefully you all have come to know that Joe is resting. It's the rest of us who have to travel this earth without our love ones, we have to adjust. It's hard to do. Be there for each other and enjoy all those wonderful (and even not so wonderful) memories. Take one day at a time. We can't take time back, nor do we want our love one to come back if they were in pain. Be thankful for all the time you did have with him. He was a good guy, hard worker and a good provider. RIP Joe.
Theresa (Edward) Fortin
I'm sorry that it took me this long to get around to sending you all my Sympathies. I've been a little busy too!
