Richard Tommy "Duke" LaPointe , died peacefully surrounded by loved ones at Fletcher Allen Hospital on Friday, April 16, 2010, following complications from longstanding health concerns. In his 56 years, Mr. LaPointe never stopped loving life or his friends and family, leaving a full legacy of touched lives and extraordinary memories. He was born on February 8, 1954, in Claremont, New Hampshire, to Theresa and Donald "Red" LaPointe. He grew up with his five siblings: Donna Tewksbury, Karen Pore, Pamela Fairbanks, Rhonda Sharkey and Colan Lacroix. He had two children, Alan LaPointe and Kristin LaPointe. Four granddaughters, Samantha LaPointe, Ashli LaPointe, Sadie Witham-LaPointe, and Sara Witham-LaPointe were a source of love and pride. He adored all ten of his nieces and nephews and watching their lives develop as they began their own families. He met and married his best friend, Tami Raymond, in 1994. Together they traveled the world. Mr. LaPointe loved the freedom that came from scuba diving with sharks and watching his wife enjoy much needed relaxation from farm life. They often traveled with their dear and devoted friends, Stephen and Trudy Hurd. Mr. LaPointe graduated from Stevens High School in Claremont, New Hampshire, in 1972. From there, he joined the Navy. He developed a love for agriculture early in life, which led him to pursue an education at the University of New Hampshire in animal science. At the same time, he would realize his dream of owning and operating his own dairy farm when he rented and eventually bought Kristal Farms in Holland. Even though health issues would eventually leave him unable to continue his passion for dairy farming, Mr. LaPointe was never one to let problems stop him from living his life to the fullest. He made use of his newly found freedom to see the world, spend time with his friends and family, and help his wife turn the farm into a family oriented, successful equine establishment. He lived his life with dignity, compassion, and purpose and will be sorely missed by the many people whose lives he helped shape. Both Mr. and Mrs. LaPointe touched countless lives of children as they shared their love of livestock. In acknowledgement of the remarkable care that Mr. LaPointe received from North Country Hospital, the family asks that anyone wishing to give toward his memory make a donation to the Ron Holland Community Dialysis Center at North Country Hospital in Newport or to the Border Livestock Plus 4-H Club, care of Clara Nadeau, 3571 Gore Road, Derby, Vermont 05829. A celebration of Mr. LaPointe's life will start at noon on May 15 at Kristal Farms, 905 Goodall Road, in Holland. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
