In Memoriam

Yestermorrow lost an instructor and friend in early July. 

We were all deeply saddened to hear of the death of woodworking instructor John Connell, who drowned in a tragic accident on Lake Memphremagog. John was new to the Yestermorrow faculty. He co-taught one segment of the 2012 Woodworking Certificate Program and was well appreciated by the students for his skillful teaching and caring attention. John was a woodworker and cabinetmaker for 30 years and owned his own business, Sycamore Woodworks. He was a talented craftsman, teacher, and coach. His excellent teaching and his great smile will be deeply missed. 

Our heartfelt condolences to John's family and the many people who knew and loved him.
