Raymond L. LaBounty Sr.

Raymond L. LaBounty Sr., 67, of North Danville, Vt., passed away at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., after a period of failing health.

He was born in Barton, Vt., on July 26, 1941, the son of Francis J. and Myrtie (Patrick) LaBounty. His mother later married John Beaulieu.

Ray was a home-care provider for Human Services and took great satisfaction in caring for his clients. He was also one of the first drivers for RCT. In his younger years he was in business with his brother-in-law, Ronald Daigle, doing masonry. He had previously worked at EHV Weidmann.  He and Leah had also run their own cleaning business. His family will always remember him answering the phone, “Howdy, howdy!!”

He is survived by his wife, Leah (Couture) LaBounty of North Danville (P.O. Box 541, St. Johnsbury, Vt. 05819); four children, Myrtie Alexander of Bedford, Ky., Raymond LaBounty Jr. and Cathy Demers of St. Johnsbury, Beulah Nichols and husband Jim of St. Johnsbury, and Lee LaBounty of North Danville; 10 grandchildren, Jimmy and Darren, Raymond III, Richard, and Ross, Kaeleigh, Jake, and Kelsea, Jim and Keith; and one great-granddaughter, Darren’s daughter, Alaina Rae.

He is also survived by a brother Robert LaBounty of Meriden, Conn.; four sisters, Marion Griffin and Beverly LaBounty, both residing at Maple Lane Nursing Home in Barton, Pauline Shafer of Bedford, Ky., and Rachel Daigle of Granville N.Y., and her husband, Ronald Daigle, a very special brother-in-law; stepbrother, Leo Beaulieu of St. Johnsbury; nieces and nephews; and Barbara O’Connell, who made her home, and still does, with the LaBountys. 

He was predeceased by two brothers, Kenneth and (just yesterday) Richard; and a sister, Dorothy Morgan.

Funeral services were held Saturday at the North Danville Baptist Church. The pastor, the Rev. Robert H. Sargent, officiated. Committal services followed at the Mt. Calvary Cemetery in St. Johnsbury. Visiting hours were held at the funeral home Friday evening.

Memorial contributions may be made to either: Danville Rescue, P.O. Box, Danville, Vt. 05828; to the North Danville Community Club.

Memories and condolences may be shared with the family @ www.saylesfh.com. 

Sayles Funeral home is located at 525 Summer St. in St. Johnsbury.
