TIMOTHY LOUIS PELLERIN – DURANGO, CO . Timothy Louis Pellerin, 53, passed away on December 27, 2014 at his home after suffering from a brief illness. Tim was born in Burlington on March 15, 1961 to Norman and Annette (Langlois) Pellerin. He grew up in Underhill and graduated from Mount Mansfield Union High School and Essex Technical Center in 1979. After graduation he joined the U.S. Marines and was stationed in Japan and Yuma, Arizona. After serving in the Marines he returned to Vermont and found he had a talent and skill in woodworking and made fine cabinetry and furniture. In the mid-1980s he moved to Colorado where he worked in construction and began his own construction company. Tim loved the outdoors and enjoyed snowboarding, hiking, sailing and gardening as well as raising a few farm animals. Tim was a private person with a peaceful, kind and gentle heart. Friends and family enjoyed his easygoing manner, wisdom and dry sense of humor. He had a can-do attitude and with a little research could build anything from a car to house or sailboat. He loved learning how to do things and how to do them better or in an unconventional manner. We will all miss him. Tim is survived by his son, Zephyr of San Francisco, his father, Norman Pellerin, of Essex, his sisters Marie Keefe and her husband, David, of Fairfax, Lori Lembesis and her husband, Nick, of Burlington and his brother, Peter and wife, Rebecca, of Denver, Co. His mother, Annette Pellerin, passed away on Sunday, December 28, 2014. Arrangements will be made for a memorial service to celebrate his life in the spring.
