    Notes 
    • Obit from the Times Argus:
      MORETOWN - Leo Fred Howes, 92, died on Saturday, Feb. 28 2009, at Central Vermont Medical Center.
      He was born in Moretown on July 13, 1916, to Fred S. and Hattie (Somerville) Howes. He attended local schools and Methodist churches.
      Leo married Geneva Poland of Middlesex on Aug. 26 1942, in Waterbury. He joined his father in the cattle business at the age of 16 and will be remembered by some as their butcher.
      He served the town as a lister, selectman, cemetery commissioner and fence viewer.
      Leo enjoyed going to the beach in Maine, fishing with his grandchildren, picnics and watching his children and grandchildren as they grew up, several of whom joined the farm operations at various times. And he also enjoyed a good joke.
      He is survived by his wife, Geneva; daughter Flora Lyon and her husband Everett of Royalton; sons Roger and his wife Paula of Norwich, Brian and his wife Carol of Moretown and Duane and his wife Sherry of Moretown; eight grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; several cousins; and by Wendall Labor Jr, whom they raised. He was predeceased by his parents; sister Hilda; and grandson David Lyon.
      A graveside service will be held in the spring at the Moretown Common Cemetery.
