Lucien (Bud) DuBois, 85, of Walden, VT formerly of Burlington, CT peacefully passed away on September 8, 2020. He was born in Collinsville, CT on September 9, 1934 to the late Lucien and Odile (Fournier) DuBois. Bud was proud of his family and cherished all family gatherings for great meals, holidays, and vacations at Moosehead Lake, Old Orchard Beach, and the shores of Cape Cod. His favorite hobbies were gardening, hunting and fishing with family and friends. Researching until he mastered his gardening skills brought him great success. He was a gifted teacher and eagerly shared his knowledge. Bud worked in Spring Manufacturing for many years. After his retirement, being in the peaceful mountains of Vermont is where he wanted to be. The woods, crisp air, clear night skies, wildflowers, gardens, and wildlife will always remind of us of his love for the land.
