Foreman Sr. He grew up in New Milford, CT, and attended New Milford schools. In 1987, the Foremans moved to their new home in Orwell, VT, a retirement home they physically built themselves. Bert and Margie enjoyed their life together in the beauty of the Vermont countryside. Bert was an avid sportsman. He enjoyed training his hounds and hunting with friends and family. He and Margie spent many happy times together ATV-ing the local Vermont trails. Bert was a master mechanic for most anything in need of repair but was highly skilled and sought after in HVAC services. For many years, he was service manager at Lindstedt Oil Co. of New Milford. After moving to Vermont, Bert was a self-employed trucker, traveling all 48 continental states. Along the road of life, Bert made many friends who will always remember him for his sense of humor and contagious smile.
