IRASBURG - Charles T. Jaquish, Jr. passed away on April 26, 2021 in North Country Hospital in Newport at the age of 91 surrounded by his loving family. He left this world the way he lived his life: under his own terms and at his own pace. Charlie was born in a logging camp on Spruce Mountain in Plainfield on July 30, 1929 to Charles T. Jaquish and Gladys (Spencer) Martin. He grew up with a love of fishing, hunting and the outdoors, and while still young, he worked with his father logging in the woods. In 1948 he joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany. After returning home, he ran a dairy farm in Craftsbury and later found the career he loved which was operating a grader and working on road construction. He helped build Interstate 91 in the 1960s and worked on many other roads throughout northern New England during his career.

A long-time resident of Irasburg, he served as selectman for many years and after his retirement from road construction he operated grader for the Town, continuing the work he loved. He also loved vegetable gardening and throughout the summer he could be found working in his large garden. Charlie never met a stranger, and he will be remembered for his quick wit and outgoing personality. He had many friends, including the members of the Breakfast Club at Bob’s Quick Stop in Irasburg.

He is survived by his wife, Claire (Cote), his four children, Jo-Ann (Gary) Johnson, Denis (Karen) Jaquish, Charles (Kathy) Jaquish, and Ann Jenne and partner Randy (Tunk) Burns; a sister, Janet Chadwick; six grandchildren, Brandy (Normand), Kristopher (Virginia), Jessica, Nicholas, Geoffroy, Michael; two great-grandchildren, Evan and Jacob. He also leaves behind sisters-in-law Yolande Cody, Joanne (Dana) Comstock, and brother-in-law Maurice (Monica) Cote and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Robert and sister Jacqueline.

Burial will be at a future date in Irasburg Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Charlie's memory to Irasburg Public Library, 130 Park Ave, Irasburg, Vermont 05845; Mary E. Wright Halo Foundation, 1073 Upper Quarry Rd, Newport, Vermont 05855; or Dr. Leslie Lockridge, P.O. Box 838, Newport, Vermont 05855. On-line condolences can be left at

My condolences to the family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (
