BARRE CITY- Lloyd (Bud) Vernon Rector, 69, passed away on Saturday May 2, 2020 at his home in Barre Vt. with his wife by his side. He was born Oct. 27, 1950 in Chelan Washington and was the son of Thomas M. Rector and Barbara L. (Huckins) Neher. He attended Mount Baker High School and graduated in 1969. Bud had worked at many jobs over the years including Maintenance, Masonry, Carpentry and Sign Making. He was a fine artist and painter, extremely creative, and a true "Renaissance man". He worked as a machinist at Trow & Holden in Barre for Norm Akley and his wife Lauren LaMorte whom he had been good friends with for over 40 Years. He retired in 2016 after more than 20 years on the job. His greatest passion was inventing. People may remember him as the "Bubble Man" in which he invented an apparatus known as the "bubble bow". He enjoyed putting people inside the bubble and watching their expressions of "wow" and excitement. He especially loved seeing the smiles on all the kids faces. Bud enjoyed bike riding, fishing, sailing, kayaking, camping and cruising the waters in our old motorboat named "buttercup". He liked classical music, a good joke and a laugh with his friends, and when back out in Washington, he absolutely loved spending time with his family and loved them dearly. He was so proud of his two sons, Jonah and Andy and loved them immensely. Lloyd is survived by his wife Deborah (Houle) Rector, his two sons, Jonah Rector and Andy Rector. His sister Roxanne Paul and brothers Ken Rector, John Stowe and Mike Stowe as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister Deanna Tibbs. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date when events allow. Pruneau-Polli Funeral Home of 58 Summer Street in Barre is assisting the family.
