GRAND ISLE - Paul E Prairie, age 81, passed away on Friday, December 30th, 2022, at the McClure Miller Respite House in Colchester.
Paul was born in Alburgh on December 30th, 1941, to the late Ernest and Lucille (Lefebvre) Prairie.
Upon completion of his degree in accounting from St. Michaels College, Paul spent the majority of his career as a CPA in Grand Isle County. Paul had a great affection for Antique John Deere tractors, some might say he was an old farmer at heart. Sunday afternoons were spent watching football. He loved to play cards and was always up for a family BBQ at the lake.
He is survived by his partner of many years Martha Bohannon; her three daughters and their families; siblings, Peter Prairie and his wife Sheila, Maurice Prairie, and Suzanne Herrick and her husband Robert; niece and nephew Dena and Robert.
Besides his parents, Paul was predeceased by his brother, Bernard Prairie in 1997.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the McClure Miller Respite House, 3113 Roosevelt Highway Colchester, VT 05446.
The family would like to thank the McClure-Miller Respite house staff for all their care and support.
Friends and family will be invited to Paul's Life Celebration this spring at the St. Amadeus Cemetery Alburgh, VT.
