1977 – 2021
Woodstock – Andy M. Vertefeuille, 44, of Route 169, Woodstock died; unexpectedly; Saturday, October 30, 2021, in Hartford Hospital. Born in Putnam, Connecticut, he was the beloved son of Ernest (Butch) and the late Mary Vertefeuille. He was a graduate of Woodstock Academy class of 1996.
Andy worked in construction as a demolition specialist for many years, before going to work with his father, whom he affectionately referred to as Pops. While working with his father on the numerous projects around the farm Andy often had the next tool ready in hand before it was asked for. He was a good friend to everyone he knew, always willing to be helpful when needed. As big as he was you couldn’t find a gentler person with such a big heart. He lived life the way that he wanted, on his terms.
He enjoyed watching or listening to the New England sports teams and had an amazing ability to remember statistics of the teams and players. He inherited his mother’s love of reading. He enjoyed books on history, as well as various magazines about collecting; knives, coins and classic cars; to name a few. Andy loved going to yard sales and the Brimfield Antique Flea Market with his father; where he could put his knowledge of an items value to good use. He was always hoping to get a great deal on something to add to his collections.
In addition to his father, Andy is survived by his sister, Kathy Webber and her husband Bradley, of Derry, NH.
