Paul Odilon Pouliot, 87 of So. Burlington, passed peacefully on Saturday, December 26, 2020 at the Gazebo's in So. Burlington to be with Noella and his Lord.

Paul was born in Colchester, VT on August 4, 1933, the son of the late Irene Potvin and Josephat Pouliot of Westford, VT. He attended Cathedral High School in Burlington, VT. Paul married Noella DeForge at St. Francis Xavier church in Winooski, VT on July 17, 1954. He worked most of his life at IBM as a Facilities Repairman, starting in 1965 until his retirement in the late 80's.

Paul was preceded in death by his wife of almost 50 years, Noella, in 2004. His brother, Harold Pouliot passed away in 1967.

Paul had certain life-long values that he truly believed in; faith, family and hard work. He always set the example of those values to his family and friends. Paul was a very active member of St. John Vianney's Church in So. Burlington, VT. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and was involved in many of their functions and duties. He was a Eucharistic Minister for many years, and would visit the sick and elderly to talk with them and to bring them Holy Communion.

Paul had many interests and hobbies that he enjoyed. He loved to hunt and fish, as well as gardening and playing horseshoes. Other interests included shooting pool, bowling, attending fiddler's meets, dancing and building various items in his woodworking shop. Cards were a big part of his life, and his family all became card players as well. He and Noella would always have a cribbage game going if no one else was around, and they kept track of how many games each of them had won for a whole year! Loser had to pay for a night out on the town.

Paul always enjoyed spending time with his family and would always want to keep the family together as much as possible. Whether for a meal and some card games, attending his grandchildren's sporting or other school events, or attending a family reunion. For many years, he was to one to organize a Pouliot Family Reunion, where up to 100 people would gather to eat, talk, tell stories and just enjoy the day. He's a role model for many of us and will be a tough act to follow.

Paul is survived by his children: Sue Powers and her husband Fred of Williston, Steve Pouliot and his wife Filomena Rego of So. Burlington, Tina Byrd and her husband Calvin of Sun City AZ, Mark Pouliot and his fiancée Joanne Boutin of Monkton, and Lisa Jodoin and her husband Dan of Georgia. He is fondly remembered by his grandchildren and great grandchildren: Michelle Smith and her husband Tyrel, Matthew Pouliot, his wife, Miranda and their son Logan, Ashlie Graham and her husband Andrew, Anjuli Sanford, her husband Marlon and their son Milo, Marissa Byrd and her son Jayden, Lindsay Jodoin, Adam Pouliot and Joshua Jodoin. Also surviving are his two sisters. Adrianne Berard, and her husband Jim, of So. Burlington, and Gloria Houston and her husband Floyd of Burke, VA. Paul also has many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dr. Peter Gunther, Dad's physician for many years for all of the care that he gave Paul. We also would like to thank the staff at the Gazebo's in So. Burlington. Paul was a resident there for the last year. He received excellent care and we thank you for being there for Dad.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 on January 4th at St. John Vianney's in So. Burlington. Due to the Pandemic, the services will be for family members and close friends only.

To the Family of Paul,
My wife and I grew up in the 50s with Paul, his brother, Harold, and sisters, Adrienne and Gloria. Great family and we had many good times together. After he was married and moved to South Burlington near the airport we would always say, that's where Paul and Noella live when we drove by but we lost contact over the years. We do remember that he loved to deer hunt in the Daudelin and Repa Road area of Underhill. Fond family memories and he is now at peace with Jesus. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Sue, Steve, Tina, Mark and Lisa and all of the extended Pouliot family members -

I am so very sorry to hear of Uncle Paul's passing on to his eternal reward. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter the age or the circumstances. Since we regularly gathered on New Year's day for years at the Clairmont's, to celebrate Gary's birthday and each New Year, it is only fitting to imagine a wonderful French family celebration taking place in heaven this year, with all of the relatives who passed before him.

Given the current COVID restrictions, I will be attending the funeral on Monday remotely. Please know, however, that I will be holding all of you in my heart and remembering you in my prayers as you go through this difficult process of grief. God bless and keep you all!

With loving thoughts and prayers,

Debby DeForge Heyer
