Obituary for Joseph Winslow Siple II

Joseph Winslow Siple II, 64, a longtime resident of Bolton, VT, died at home in the morning hours of May 18th, 2022.
Joe, aka Big Joe, Bubba, was born in Burlington, VT on June 7th, 1957 to the late Joseph and Yvonne (Campbell) Siple, long-time residents of Richmond, VT. He attended school in Richmond and graduated from Mt. Mansfield Union High School, Jericho, VT in 1975.

Shortly after graduation, he started his career working with concrete and then eventually started his own business, Joe Siple Concrete. He specialized in curbing and sidewalks until health issues forced him to retire in June 2014. He had a great work ethic and took pride in providing his customers with quality work. Many friendships developed during his working career and retirement.

He leaves his son, James of Hoschton, GA, his sisters, Gayla Siple of Chester and Yvonne Lacaillade of Colchester VT; his long-time partner and loving caregiver, Paula Hanson of Cabot. Joe is also survived by his special nieces Kelly Evans and husband Michael of Jericho, Carrie Lacaillade and daughters, Megan and Ciera of Colchester, Corey Bennett and husband Jamie and their sons, Bryce and Blake of Richmond. He also leaves behind special nieces and nephews in GA, Sabrina, Barbara, Robert & Richard and their families, and extended family in Vermont of Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. Joe enjoyed spending time at family get-togethers and loved playing jokes on his nieces, Kelly, Carrie & Corey, and then on his great nieces and nephews, Megan, Ciera, Bryce & Blake. They have many fond memories, especially getting back at him! Joe also leaves his beloved cats, Bootsie and Grandma's Cat.

Joe was a master at making homemade apple pie and it was requested at many family gatherings! He also loved his remote-control toys and puttering around with his tools and projects.

Joe was predeceased by his parents, his brother Bill and sister-in-law Maryann, and by his ex-wife, Mary.

Joe left quite an impression on many people because of his thoughtful, friendly, laid-back personality and willingness to help anyone. Our hearts are breaking at the loss of our dear Joe. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
