I met Henry Marchand on a beautiful day last fall. I had no idea why this van with NY plates was in my driveway but once I saw Hank smiling from the front seat I felt at ease, like I knew him from somewhere. I was so thrilled to learn that he grew up in the house that we call our home. He has many stories to tell, how his Dad built the stone walls , how his Mom tended to the chickens on the back step and one that I particularly love is him riding his trike down the stairs in the house! Oh Boy! I told my sons that story and they laughed because they rode the laundry basket down the same stairs. I was very pleased to know that Hank was able to visit with a childhood friend , my husband's Uncle Dee (Norman) whom he went to school with and I believe got into some mischief with...that made the both of them very happy to see each other again. I am so glad that I was able to meet him and be a part of his Journey in life. Our Home is even more special to me now that I have more memories of its occupants. I hope whoever lives here in the future is out in the driveway someday and I get to stop in and make their day like Hank did mine. Thank You Henry Marchand , not only for your service to our Country but for adding memories to a special place we both called our home.
Deepest Sympathies to all of Hank's family...I love the pictures and lots of smiles .........Beth and Paul Lachapelle and Sons

Beth, ohhh so nicely said. Thank you for sharing all of that. The trip to take Hank back home and revisit his childhood home, his church, his friend, his old stomping ground was great for him and yes for us as well. Thank you for being so welcoming, to let us come in, look around and let Hank reminise. We all enjoyed his stories about it all then and now. We are so thankful and grateful we had that time together. Bless you all and again, thank you for your warm hospitality. Debbie,Ray Steve and families

Life is short, and memories are long with us. To Ray, Deb, Steve, and Barb, your Dad will be with you forever~ My fondest memories of him, were at Hedges Lake; often swimming across the entire lake, or the perimeter of that lake, and taking my brother Joe with him. He was such a kind man, and always had a good joke to share. Now he is dancing in the sky. May you all find peace~ Hope he meets up with my Dad. Love to you all. Barb Scott Long. ❤️

Barbara Marchand Posted at 01:07pm

Awe Barb, can see that smiling face of yours! We all thank you so much for another memory you have brought back. Thanks for the nice words about Hank. He will be missed. From all of us, Love and hugs, Barb

Dear Debbie and family, we were all heartbroken to hear of Hank’s passing. Your Dad was truly a genuine gentleman and was my dad’s best man and best friend since 17. A precious lifelong friendship that even though distance may have separated them they were still close in heart. My dad tells us stories of he and Hank until this day. We all shared a memory we will never forget, the Honor Flight! We are forever grateful for the time together. Their generation is like no other. Prayers for comfort and peace are with you all. Our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy. Sincerely, Lisa Iannotti, daughter of Ed Magnotti and family.

Lisa, We all thank you so much for your nice words and memories. We know Deb and Hank really enjoyed the time together. The photos are special to have. We have also all heard Ed and Hank stories, what a friendship! Thank you again for sharing. Sincerely, Debbie, Ray, Steve, and families

Hank was our neighbor at Hedges Lake for many summers when I was growing up and was good friends with my father. I have very fond memories of him and time spent together fishing for bullhead late at night. We used to catch some beautiful fish! My condolences to his family.

Barbara Marchand Posted at 08:39am

thank you Joe. Hank loved catching the bullhead! We appreciate you sharing the memory. From us all, Barb

Mr. Marchand was my neighbor when I was a kid growing up, I
knew Debbie, Ray and Steve very well, as we all hung out with the
other kids in the neighborhood playing dish or ball.
He was always fun to listen to as he had so many hobbies and stories
about building things and hunting especially, he loved to hunt.
As I grew older and moved out of Hoosick Fall's , Kay and I would
occasionally run into him at breakfast on Sundays or at a golf tournament.
He was always fun to see and be around, always smiling and asking how
we were . He would update us on everyone and where they were, he was
very proud of his children and grandchildren.
In recent years, I had the pleasure of seeing him every week at the "Veterans
Coffee Group" at the American Legion in Hoosick Fall's. He was a very popular
and fun part of our group, I will miss him dearly.

Barbara Posted at 08:28pm

Howie, such nice words and memories. thank you so much. our best to you and Kay. Fondly, Steve and Barb and the gang! oxoxo
