Joseph Doppman Sr.
Joseph E. Doppman Sr. died Sunday July 22, 2018 at the age of 80. Born in Florence MA on Feb 10, 1938, Joe was proud to be a Vermonter for the past 51 years. In 1960, he married Gloria J. Vigneault spending 57 wonderful years together; they actually considered themselves very lucky to have this time despite various health problems. After Joe's retirement, he and Gloria spent their free time at 5 Corners Antiques. Joe loved restoring old lamps back to their former glory. He also loved collecting old things for people with like minds. This is where their second family was born, with loving friends and neighbors who were always close by.
Joe is survived by two daughters, Rae Ann and Dianna of Texas, one son, Joe Jr and Rebecca of Richmond VT, two cherished grandsons, Max and Spencer, three brothers, and several nieces and nephews.
A liturgy of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday July 27, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 3 Peter Street, Winooski VT at 10am, with full military honors. Burial will be private. LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 132 Main Street Winooski VT is entrusted with the arrangements.
