David E. Fleury


David E. Fleury, 43, of Waterbury, passed away unexpectedly at the Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin on Saturday evening, December 6, 2008. Born in Montpelier on October 27, 1965, he was the son of Frederick F. and Anne (Wheeler) Fleury. On April 13, 1985, David married Elizabeth Borland in Barre.

David was educated at Harwood Union High School in Duxbury and as a young man, worked in the construction field as a carpenter. He later embarked on a career in mechanical insulation and has been employed for the past 10 years by New England Air Systems of Williston.

An industrious worker all of his life, David found enjoyment working in the plumbing and heating field. He was a special person who enjoyed many things, like hunting and fishing with his boys, to cutting up deer with his dad or helping his parents with odd jobs around their home, or anyone else who was in need. His quiet times included watching Jeff Gordon race, the Boston Red Sox play, or simply talking with his daughter on the phone for long periods of time. He also spent a lot of time with his sisters and was a devoted and loving father to his children. He has touched many people's lives and will be greatly missed.

David is survived by his parents, Fred and Anne Fleury of Waterbury; his children, Nicole Fleury of Barre, David E. Fleury Jr. of Waterbury, and Cory Fleury of Waterbury; his maternal grandmother, June Wheeler of Holiday, FL; two sisters, Donna Fleury of So. Burlington and Patty Fleury and her companion Rupert Erwin of Waterbury Center; a brother, Fred Fleury Jr. and his wife Dawn of Graniteville; his former wife, Elizabeth Fleury of Barre; his close friend and cousin, Patrick Fleury of Northfield; his friend and co-worker, Todd Chaffee of Essex; as well as nieces, nephews, extended family and many good friends he considered family.

Memorial services will be held from the Waterbury Congregational Church on Thursday, December 11, at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow in the church dining room. Friends called at the Perkins-Parker Funeral Home in Waterbury on Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. The family requests that flowers be omitted; rather memorial gifts would be appreciated to the Cory and David Fleury Jr. Fund, C/O the Northfield Savings Bank, 29 South Main Street, Waterbury, VT 05676.
