Spencer Kevin Morrell, 23, of Burlington, passed away on Thursday Nov. 9, 2017.
Spencer was born on Nov. 1, 1994, in New Britain. Spencer was a free spirit, always full of adventure and full of life. His many hobbies included skateboarding, biking, hiking, fishing, cliff jumping and chillin’ with his family and friends. He will always be remembered for his smile that could light up a room and his contagious laugh. He always had the biggest goals and aspirations for himself, and was always so grateful for the life he had. There was never a day he wasn’t happy. He was such a loving and caring soul, gone far too soon.
He is survived by his parents, Kevin and Debra (Lagasse) Morrell of Burlington; his sister, Kortney Morrell of Burlington; his paternal grandparents, Kempton and Mary Morrell of New Britain; his maternal grandparents, Gerard and Emerilda LaBrie of Bristol, and Percy Lagasse and Lise Archambault of Derby, Vt.; his aunts and uncles, John and Judy, Tim and Robin, Patrick and Dayle, Dennis, Brian and Anita, Paul and Michelle Morrell and Mike and Nancy Rinaldi; with far too many cousins to list. He is predeceased by his Godfather and uncle, Raymond Rosado.
