ALBURG/SHELDON - Fay A. Bozo Corwell Jr., age 70, died on July 19, 2018 at his daughters home in Alburg. He was a longtime resident of Sheldon, but he lived with his daughter Stacy for the past few years in Alburg. Fay died at home surrounded by his family after a fall that caused a brain hemorrhage.
He was born in Cambridge on May 6, 1948, the son of the late Fay Sr. Peanut & Dorothy (Taylor) Corwell.
Fay worked at the paper mill in Sheldon in his younger years, and then worked on a farm for most of his adult life. Fay had a great love of fishing and hunting and being a great companion to his dog, Lexi. Lexi meant everything to him, they loved and took care of one another like a father and daughter. She resides at his residence in Alburg.
He is survived by his 4 children and their life partners, Stacey Corwell and John Lockwood of Alburg, Pamala Armstrong and Daniel Swedo of Milton, Tammy and Paul Brunton of Alburg, and Shawn St. Francis and Brenda Unwin of St. Albans; five grandchildren, Chelsea and Paul Brunton, Samuel and Gabrielle Armstrong, and Brandon Lockwood; four great grandchildren, Ava and Evony Marshall, and Axel and Kyra Brunton; five sisters and their spouses, Bonnie and John LaFrance of Highgate Falls, Jan and John Ferland of Highgate Center, Marilyn Brow of St. Albans, Beatrice and Robert Withham of Sheldon Springs, and Judy and Gerald Messier of Florida; several nieces and nephews and many cousins, aunts and uncles.
As Fays daughter Stacey, I would like to say something about my father: He was a very complex man and most people knew him just from what they saw on the outside, but I knew him on a different level. He truly was a man with a great heart that loved life. I had the unique opportunity to be his daughter and no matter what happened throughout our life together, good and bad, my love for him never faltered. My life will forever be changed because of him and the only thing that mattered is he knew I loved him and he loved me. Upon my fathers request he did not want any services. If you truly knew my dad, he was a private man.
