    BARRE TOWN ó Mario R. Fecteau, 62, of Cobble Hill Road, passed away Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013.

    Born on Feb. 27, 1950, in St. Ludger, Quebec, he was the son of Gaston Fecteau and Gervais (Carrier) Fecteau. Due to the death of his father and his motherís illness, Mario and his twin sister were raised from a very young age in St. Samuel, Quebec, by the Boulet family.

    Mario came to the United States in the early 1970s and worked with his brother Viateur in construction for many years. He was married to Dianne Woods for several years, and they had a son, Eric, who also lives in Barre Town. He also helped raise his stepdaughter, Robin, and remained close to her and her family until his death.

    Mario was known for his work ethic, and those who knew him knew that sunset was just the start of another shift. He was a lovable man who made friends wherever he went, and he never hesitated to help someone in need.

    In his spare time, Mario enjoyed traveling to Canada and visiting family. He also enjoyed working on his equipment, vehicles and property. His favorite pastime was spending time with his granddaughter, Mathea, who would accompany him practically everywhere.

    Mario is survived by his son, Eric, and daughter-in-law, Lina, and their daughter, Mathea; stepdaughter Robin Doolen and her husband, Robert Doolen, and their children, of Middlesex; his brother Vic Fecteau and his wife, Patricia, of Barre Town; his sister, Marielle, of St. Samuel, Quebec; and brother Michel and wife Aline, of St. Georges, Quebec; and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

    Mario was predeceased by his parents.

    A memorial will be held in the spring to celebrate his life.

    In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Central Vermont Humane Society in his honor.

    The Hooker and Whitcomb Funeral Home, 7 Academy St., Barre, is assisting the family with arrangements.
