James Francis Consedine, 87, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family at the VNA Respite House on Thursday, January 25, 2018. He was born in Willimansett, MA to Harold and May Consedine on November 20, 1930. He graduated from St. Michael's College with a degree in Accounting. He entered the US Army and was assigned to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. He married M. Carmen Tessier in 1954 and they raised five children together. His children remember him as a devoted, patient father who encouraged them to pursue their goals. He was "Papa" to 14 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He retired from IBM after more than 25 years of service. Later in life he was fortunate to meet and marry Mary Lee Brooks. James was an accomplished golfer and bowler. He was a social individual who loved spending time with family and friends. He was a member of Rocky Ridge Golf Course, Burlington Country Club, Links at Lang Farm, BPOE 916, and Moose Lodge 1618. James Consedine is survived by his wife, Mary Lee; his five children, Jeanne Clark, James Consedine II, Margaret Watson, Mary Blankemeyer, and Michele Mitchell and Mary Lee's children, Warren Brooks, Judi Chapman, Pam Pierce, and Randy Brooks. He is preceded in death by his wife M. Carmen Consedine, his parents, and brother Harold Consedine. A celebration of his life will take place at Faith United Methodist Church in South Burlington on Monday, January 29th at 11:00, followed by internment at Resurrection Park Cemetery. A special thanks to Dr. Dennis Sanders and staff as well as the wonderful, caring people at the VNA Respite House in Colchester. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the VNA Respite House.
