Obituary of Jeffrey Lee Minor

Fairfax - Jeffrey Lee Minor, 61, died peacefully early Christmas morning, December 25, 2020 at his home with loving family by his side following a battle with glioblastoma.

Jeff was born on November 4, 1959 in Burlington the son of Lee and Louise (Potvin) Minor.

A lifelong resident of Fairfax, Jeff graduated from BFA Fairfax in 1977. Before graduating, he bought the local country store, now known as Minor's Country Store.

Jeff loved his friends and his family, playing cards, cruises, organizing large family functions, his trips to Maine, Montreal and the Cape. In later years he got more into traveling. His favorite time of the year was Christmas, especially with his nieces and nephews.

His one frivolous purchase was in buying his convertible mustang and cruising.

He is survived by his parents Lee and Louise Minor of Fairfax, his sister Diane Bacon of Colchester, and his brother Glenn Minor and his wife Amy of Westford.
He is also survived by his nieces and nephews Aaron Minor and his wife Lisa of Fairfax, who Jeff enjoyed watching him carry on his legacy, Kellie Minor and Charles Rowse of Fairfax, Nick Bacon and Kristiana Boucher of Williston, Addison and Anna Minor of Westford, Kris Irwin and his wife Xem of Winooski, his great nieces and nephews Noah, Skylar, Avery, Nolan, Kira and Kora and by many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.

He was predeceased by his brother Alan Minor in 1998, Alan's wife Annette in 2010, Diane's husband Mike Bacon in 2011.

Jeff treated all of his employees and customers as extended family.

He was the nucleus of his family, he gave more than he ever asked of anybody. He would provide for his family, his community and friends. If he saw a need, he tried to fill it.

Special thanks is given to his cousin and special friend Brion Houston and his cousin Suzy Goulette, his friend Scott Beckwith and all of his doctors and caregivers at UVM and Boston for all the care they gave him during his illness.
