West Dummerston- Terry E. Tyler, 78, of Camp Arden Road, local entrepreneur and businessman died late Friday afternoon, December 3, 2010 of heart complications at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. Mr. Tyler was born in White River Jct., Vermont on July 24, 1932 the son of Wallace and Agnes (Allen) Tyler. He was raised and educated in Dummerston and had attended Brattleboro High School. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict serving with an engineering battalion at Fort Hood, Texas. Following his honorable discharge from active service he returned to his beloved Vermont. Prior to entering the military he worked for Soils & Conservation, and then for North Haven Construction. His love of ski jumping and skiing were a major force when he and North Haven Construction teamed up to design and build Maple Valley Ski Area in West Dummerston. Mr. Tyler went on to build another ski area in Bennington, N.H. and over the years installed close to 25 ski lifts, miles of snow making pipe, and 100’s of acres of ski trails at many ski areas in and around New England. One of his proudest accomplishments was the building and completion of the access road to Stratton, the project completed in less than four months. He was instrumental with the upgraded designs and construction of Harris Hill Ski Jump, overseeing the most recent renovation and upgrade completed two years ago. Mr. Tyler had great enthusiasm for sports especially ski jumping, football and baseball. He spent his youth with his brother Wayne and friends ski jumping on a hillside above Dummerston and advanced to jumps at Harris Hill, Berlin, N.H., Rumford, ME, and lake Placid. He played baseball on the old Valley League and football with the Greenfield, MA Lions. Of his many interests, included were, designing and building snow grooming machines, snow guns, rock crushers and screening plants. Mr. Tyler was a member of the B.P.O. Elks, Brattleboro Lodge #1499 and he held membership in the American Legion Brattleboro Post #5. He was a 50 year member of the former West Dummerston Grange. With his wife he was a communicant of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Putney. He had a big heart always assisting newly appointed priests from Tanzania, helping with fund raising, and orienting the new clergy to the area. In past years he could be seen walking the sidelines, with an occasional holler or two, at his sons’ football games, and more recently at his grandchildren’s football, soccer, field and ice hockey, and wrestling competitions. He will be surely missed by those who loved him, his humor, and story telling. On July 4, 1953 at Saint Ann’s Roman Catholic Church in Jersey City, N.J. he was married to Mary Canny who survives. Besides his faithful and loving wife of 57 years he leaves, three sons, Terrence and his wife Lois of Hubbardston, MA, Brian and his wife Joann of Dummerston, Jude also of Dummerston, a daughter, Kathleen Evans and her husband James of Dummerston, ten grandchildren, one great granddaughter, two brothers, Wayne and his wife Rhonda of Houston, TX, Paul Lincoln and his wife Dawn of Ballston Spa, N.Y.; a sister, Nancy Scranton and her husband Duane of Colrain, MA. Additionally he is survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by a son, Kevin who died on February 3, 1980. The Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday at 11:00 A.M. at Saint Michael’s Roman Catholic Church with Rev. Fred McLachlan, SSE, pastor of Our lady of Mercy and The West River Missions, celebrant. Burial in Dummerston Center Cemetery will be held in the springtime. Friends are invited to call at the Atamaniuk Funeral Home on Wednesday from 6 to 9 P.M. Memorial contributions in Mr. Tyler’s name may be made to, Our lady of Mercy Church, P.O. Box 246, Putney, VT. 05346, or to, Grace Cottage Hospital, Route 35, Townshend, VT. 05353.
