Obituary

Charles “Chappy” Slayton, 78, died in the comfort of his home November 20, 2020 after losing a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Belvidere on May 6th, 1942 to Charles and Evadeen (Barup) Slayton. He married Sandra Lafountain, love of his life, on November 24, 1961 in Jeffersonville. He enjoyed dancing, hunting, fishing, RVing, camping, and most of all, loved playing his guitar and singing country music.

He spent most of his working years delivering, setting up, and servicing mobile homes, double wides and modular homes. He started working for Ray’s Mobile Homes in South Burlington. He owned and operated his own business (Slayton’s Mobile Home Services), out of his home for 10 years. After that, he worked for Latham Trailer Sales in Bolton for 18 years and retired from KA Harvey’s Mobile Homes Sales in 2005.

Besides his loving wife Sandi, he leaves behind his only child Donald Slayton, 2 grandchildren, Emily Slayton and Evan Slayton, all of Jeffersonville. He leaves a special brother Dwight “Chuck” Slayton of Belvidere and brother Butch Labounty of Newport, a niece, Heather Slayton, nephews, Christoper “Bucky” Slayton and Conrad Slayton and partner Alaina Manning, all of Belvidere, and several other nieces, nephews, and cousins. He also leaves his daughter in law, mother of his grandchildren, Cheryle Slayton, of Eden and his beloved cat, Smokey.

After his retirement, he and Sandi sold their home in Jeffersonville and moved into their summer cottage in Milton, spending winters in Leesburg, Florida. While there, Chappy formed a 5-piece country band and ran music jam sessions on Sunday afternoons in the Rec Hall. Due to health problems they sold the cottage and their place in Florida and settled in Sterling View Mobile Home Park in Hyde Park. While there, he was asked to run music jams same as he did in Florida. They brought good crowds, lots of friends, and everybody enjoyed them. Because of Chappy’s failing health and Covid, the jams were forced to shut down. He was well known, well liked, and will be missed by all who knew him.

At Chappy’s request, there will be no services. He will be cremated and when Sandi’s time comes, the ashes will be combined and strewn in the lake out in front of their cottage. Let’s hope they play country music in heaven.

The family would like to thank Dr.’s Coddaire, Ospina, and Kunin and another big thank you to the nurses at the Infusion Clinic at Copley Hospital, Lamoille Home Health and Hospice for giving him such great care.

Contributions in his memory can be made to Lamoille Home Health & Hospice (54 Farr Ave, Morrisville, VT 05661) or the Lamoille Area Cancer Network (198 Farr Ave, Morrisville, VT 05661). Please visit awrfh.com to share your memories and condolences.

Please add this to the obituary messages for Chappie Slayton. Who passed away on Nov 20, 2020.

Chappie represented the best of Vermont neighbors.
He was from an era when Vermonters were from humble beginnings. When we helped each other without question.
An independent self made man with many talents and so real. Alway wanting the best for family and friends.
He was country music, living it everyday from trailers to deer hunting.
From his front porch singing he brought joy to his neighbors and he didn’t know we were his back up singers.

Some of my favorite days as a kid was sitting outside at my house on a summer day and listening to the music being played down the road. Then one day not long ago I had the pleasure of singing at a jam in Waterville with who playing for me...Chappy and Chucky. It was a day I will never forget. I appreciated his talent and his kind words to me. I also remember him cheering Donald on at baseball games it was impressive. My sympathy to you Sandy, Donald, Chuck, Butch and all. He will be missed.

Dear Sandi and families of Chappy, I have many fond memories of Chappy back in the 70s when we serviced the trucks that he drove. I think it has been over 30 years since I have seen Chappy or Chuck....way to long but the picture in the News & Citizen that I saw today looks just like him and it sounds like he has been enjoying his later years. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the family. Chappy, my friend, R.I.P.
