FAIRFAX — Vermont State Police Corporal Daniel Charles Marcellus passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, August 15, surrounded by his family, following a 10-month battle with brain cancer. He was 35.
A 14-year veteran of the Vermont State Police, Marcellus was hired at age 21 and dedicated his career to working the road as a trooper for the St. Albans and Williston barracks. In addition to his basic duties, he served as a field training officer, pre-basic instructor, Marijuana Eradication Resource Team member and crash reconstruction specialist.

\Known by his peers as selfless and dependable, Marcellus would answer his phone at any hour, dropping everything to respond to a call when his fellow brothers and sisters were in need. While he stood tall and intimidating in uniform, “Trooper Dan” was also known for his kindness, sense of humor, storytelling ability and genuine desire to make a positive impact in people’s lives.

Marcellus also served his country for six years as an infantryman in the Army National Guard. One of the highlights of his service was a three-month security detail in New York City following the events of 9/11.

Always an outdoorsman, Marcellus grew up in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. He spent his free time hiking, camping and skiing. A lifelong New York Giants and Boston Red Sox fan, Marcellus visited Fenway Park every summer with his wife, Jessica. He was honored to throw out the first pitch at Fenway just 10 days before his passing.

Marcellus is survived by his wife, Jessica, and 7-month-old son, Sawyer; his mother, Bonnie, and step-father, Robert Gosson; sister, Melissa Bartholf, and her three children, Jocelyn, Jenna, and Aidan; grandmother, Dora Harrison; and four stepsiblings.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, August 18 from 4-7 p.m. at Brady & Levesque Funeral Home, 86 South Main Street, St. Albans. Services will follow on Saturday, August 19 at 12 p.m. at the Collins- Perley Sports Complex.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jim Bashaw Memorial Cancer and Catastrophic Illness Fund (St. Albans) or the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund.

Online condolences and memories may be shared at the funeral home website: www.bradyandlevesque. com. Arrangements are entrusted to the Brady & Levesque Funeral Home and Commemorative Services.

Despite what you may have heard on the news, the Fairfax Community Library does not have solar eclipse viewing glasses to give away. We will have an Eclipse Viewing Party here at the Library on Monday 8/21 from 1-3 p.m., and we have some eclipse viewing glasses for participants to use then. Please join us!

NASA has an entire website devoted to this event! Look in the Safety section under Eclipse 101 for a list of reputable vendors. 
Given the late date, we suggest people make solar viewing projectors, pinhole projections, or sun funnels to view the eclipse. To see NASA's great website about eclipses and safe viewing, go to

eclipse2017.nasa.gov.

Also, the NASA site will be streaming the eclipse so you can view it safely on your computer. We will have thestream up on our large screen here!

Todd is correct.  It also gives the town longer to get the Audit done which has been an issue as well.  ~MK
