Gerard Badeau BARRE — Gerard “Oscar” Badeau, 60, of Orchard Street passed away on Monday, Jan. 13, 2020, at the UVM Medical Center with his family at his bedside. Born June 1, 1959, in Barre City, he was the son of Philorum and Delvina Badeau. He attended St. Monica Elementary School and graduated from Spaulding High School in 1977. On Aug. 13, 1983, he married Gina Plante in the St. Monica Catholic Church in Barre. Following their wedding, they made their home in Barre. Gerard was employed by the granite industry, a local roofing company, LD Hutchins Roofing, and Farrell Distributing before becoming a subcontractor for the U.S. Postal Service from which he retired after 30 years of service. He was a member of the St. Monica Catholic Church. In his leisure time, he liked watching and playing hockey and was a fan of the Stanley Cup Champions, the St. Louis Blues. He enjoyed watching TV – The Weather Channel, Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune and the Young and the Restless. Although most of all, he thoroughly enjoyed hanging out and having fun with his family and friends. You would always find him with a smile on his face and a beer in his hand and a heart full of love. He would do anything for the people whom he loved and he wasn’t afraid to give a hug or two. Survivors include his wife, Gina Badeau, of Barre; his daughter, Lindsey Ducey and husband Shawn and their son, Mavrick; his son, Brandon Badeau; his brothers and sisters Victor, Richard, Leonard, Edgar, Hector, Edward, Gaspor, Theodore, Cecile, Germaine, Rejeanne and Irene, and their respective spouses, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Growing up in Barre we all knew at least one Badeau. I went to school with some, my brother Chuck played hockey with some. My sympathy for your recent losses of Oscar & Bernie.


To the Badeau Family please except my deepest sympathies Ronald Edson Denver, Colorado.
