Charles Reuben Barrett Jr., age 52, passed away September 14th, 2021, in Burlington, with his loving family at his side.
His family and friends knew him as kind and compassionate, the one who could always light up a room with his smile.
On February 3rd, 1969, Chuck was born in St. Albans to Shirley Gebo and Charles Barrett Sr. He began working along with his father at Shamrock Taxi as a driver in 1988 and then went on to drive taxi for his father at Chuck’s Taxi. He enjoyed buying cars, repairing them and selling them soon after, building outdoor furniture for friends and family, painting, drawing, and writing poems. He loved his iced coffee and had a passion for collecting things such as wolves, laptops, and had a impressive Spider-Man and watch collection.
Chuck was a rare combination of someone who had a love for life and a foundational understanding of what mattered most – the simplicity of creating memories with those you cherish.
Of all the people Chuck’s life touched, his most proud achievements were sheltered in the hearts of his two children, Kaylee and Brandon Barrett, his daughter-in-law, Tiffany Barrett, his soon to be son-in-law, Todd St. Pierre, and four grandchildren, Peyton St. Pierre, Emma St Pierre, Karson Barrett, and Myles Barrett. He deeply cared for the family that he was given and continually made it known by his words and actions. His mother, Shirley Gebo, siblings, Norman Barrett, Chris Barrett, and Sandra Barrett plus many nieces and nephews will hold close the memories that were made in his beautiful life.
As Charles prioritized, may we remember to do the same – never stop creating memories with those you love most.
Chuck was preceded in death by his father Charles Barrett Sr. and a step-brother Steven Barrett.
A Remembrance Gathering will be held next spring.
As an alternative to flowers, memorials may be made in his name to the Christopher Reeves Foundation.
Arrangements are entrusted to Brady & Levesque Funeral Home, where online condolences and memories of Charles may be shared with his family and friends at www.bradyandlevesque.com
