My most fondest memory with Armand was when I was in my mid-twenties. Armand was restoring all the windows and the Waterman building at University of Vermont. Armand has to take the window out of the casein to take all the caulking out to sand replace the original glass wait for everything to dry so Armand can paint and then replace it back to the casing that holds the window Armand said he could do about one or two a Day because Armand also had to work on the casing . Armand have a helper who was learning the trade that Armand was so willing 2 train. I asked Armand how long it was going to take to do the whole building Armand replied probably several years. The year that I met him I was working on the top floor of the Waterman building as a bartender for functions for the University of Vermont and as a waiter for the restaurant. Armand worked outside in the grand foyer, he was always glad to see me and me and my partner in crime that worked with me. I truly believe he lived a grand life. Armand was a very good man.

All my love and prayers go out to Armand and his extended family.

so sorry to hear about Armand. they used to call him "charmin' Armand" on the UVM campus where he and i painted together for many years. we were a pretty tight knit crew back then, and when he retired we stayed in touch. we had some good times that i still laugh about even now, when i think back to those days. we didn't make a lot of money, but we had some fun. i don't want to give anybody the wrong idea, we did what Armand would call a "good stroke of business" in applying the paint every day. they never seemed to hire enough painters to cover the entire campus. many times it was a laugh or cry situation,and i guess we chose to laugh. i'll miss him. with sympathy to all his family, Rich Crabtree

Armand was a wonderful, fun loving man who Dick and I met when we arrived at Taft Farm. He would be sitting in the puzzle room working on a puzzle when we would be walking through. He always had a smile on his face and always called Dick his "Buddy" and call me "Sweetheart". Of course he called every woman "Sweetheart" but it did make me feel special. Lots of love came bubbling out of him every time we saw him and happiness was spread to everyone he greeted. Our memories of having met, getting to know, and just being considered a friend to Armand is so very special. Madeline and Armand are a couple that everyone admires and loves. What a tribute to both of you! We will miss seeing Armand walking thru the halls and outside when the weather is warm. Our love goes out to all of his wonderful family and especially his wife, Madeline.
