RICHFORD – Daniel J. “Bubby” Mason, age 87, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 24, 2022.

He was born in Montgomery on December 11, 1934 son of the late Gaylord & Jessie (Kennett) Mason.

Daniel grew up in Montgomery and married Monica (Dunakin) in 1977. He was so proud of his first job delivering milk by horse, and then at the young age of 15, cutting firewood. Then went on to farming on the Gaston Begnoche farm in Montgomery for a brief time. He was one of the first people to cut the right of way for the road to Jay Peak (Route 242) when that job was complete, he began working at the Sheldon Pulp Mill. Later on in life, he became a full-time woodsman working for several different loggers. The last two years of his working career, he worked construction for Blow and Cote. Working in the woods was his passion along with pulling trucks with his boys. Daniel will be remembered for living life to it’s fullest with family especially making memories with grandchildren and friends.

He is survived by his wife, Monica Mason of Richford; his children, Darlene Ives and her husband John of St. Albans, Ricky Mason and his wife Ann of Richford, April Thompson and her significant other Chris Goodrich of Sheldon, Carrie Dunakin and her significant other Aaron Heath of North Troy, and Daniel Mason and his significant other Heather Trayah of Enosburg; daughter-in-law, Amy Mason; brothers, John Mason, and William Mason; special friends, John and Pat Boyce; beloved pug dogs, Molly and Sassy (his girls); several grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and brothers and sisters-in-law.
