It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Andre R. G. Lussier, on Sunday, March 4, 2018 after a brief illness.


Andre was born February 24, 1930, to Oliva and Julliene (Dodleline) Lussier.  Andre was a farmer in Essex Junction all of his life. He loved his home and farm and spent countless hours working on the land. He was a hard worker, tough as nails with true Vermont ingenuity. Andre had an interesting life in which he loved to share his stories. He always gave you his honest opinion often times without asking. He was proud to be a veteran of the US Army.


On February 2, 1951 Andre married Lucille Irish; together they raised five children.


Surviving Andre are his fiancé and love of this life for the past 26 years Norma Haglund. They were inseparable and had a love for each other that two people later in life could only hope to find. He treated her family as his own. His daughters Julie Flemming, Diana Greenough, Joanne Harrington and Virginia Lussier; three brothers Roger, Raymond, and Mario; two sisters Pauline and Carman and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom he loved very much.


Also surviving are Andre’s Alcoholic Anonymous Family. Andre was proud to be sober for 45 years and also helping others in their recovery.


Andre is predeceased by his wife Lucille, son Allen Guy Lussier, brothers Ivan and Norman.


The family would like to extend a special thanks to Heather Ploof, Keon Leclair, Shawn Lussier, John Harnish, and Dave Turner for all your support and care.
