Michael William Charron, passed away Saturday, December 31, 2022 at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington surrounded by family. He was 56 years old. Mike had been struggling with a heart condition for the past five years. He will be missed so very much!
Mike was born September 13, 1966 in Trenton, NJ and moved to Ferrisburgh, VT when he was three years old. He graduated from Vergennes Union High School in 1984 and attended the University of Vermont.
Mike and Nancy Perkins were married on August 8, 1992. They had two wonderful children, Kyle and Kayla. Mike spent many happy hours as coach for Kyle and Kayla’s softball and baseball teams at Ferrisburgh Elementary School and assisted with coaching softball at Vergennes Union High School.
Michael was a skilled carpenter. He worked on many construction projects including building a house for his parents. He enjoyed working with fellow carpenters at local construction firms including Bristol Construction, M. Gale Builders, Conner & Buck and most recently Clearwater Builders, and he was also self-employed under the name of Diamond Island Construction.
Mike loved to read, especially mysteries. He had an extensive comic book collection – his favorite being Spider Man. He enjoyed woodworking and built beautiful furniture for his family. He was always ready to lend a helping hand when needed. On many Sunday afternoons Mike and his mom played intense and competitive games of Casino, vying for the “championship” with Mike ultimately holding the title of “two up”. He was a truly special and wonderful person.
