Reading, Vt. — Stephen William Titus, born June 28, 1996, in Lebanon, N.H. to Jason and Christina Titus of Reading, passed away in a snowmobile accident on Sunday, March 19, 2017.

He is survived by his parents; sister, Leah (Reading); paternal grandparents, D. Stephen and Patricia Titus (Windsor, Vt.) and maternal grandmother, Jackie Paugh (Beavercreek, Ohio); along with his uncle, Nathan Titus (Springfield, Vt.), aunt and uncle, Darcy & Matt Cole (Reading), aunt and uncle, Sherry & Kevin Malloy (Beavercreek), uncle and aunt, Scott & Candy Paugh (Colorado Springs, Colo.), aunt, Amy Titus (Woodstock, Vt.); cousins, Kayla, Cassie, Colby, Travis, Jacob, Spencer, Katie, Alan, Jade, William, Annie and Mary Kaitlin; plus many other relatives and friends. He is predeceased by his maternal grandfather William “Poppa Bill” Paugh.

Stephen came into our lives in his own time weighing 10lbs 12oz and almost 23 inches long and you’d never know looking at him. From the minute he could move it was all about anything on two or four wheels. He loved to be outside in the woods or riding his bike with Chico or cruising “Back Street” with Leah in his battery operated jeep. He was a shy boy when he first met you but soon overcame that with his big, goofy smile and firm handshake. School was not always easy but he overcame those challenges with his charm and personality. He made an impact and a contribution to anything he was a part of. He was an incredible, hard worker but loved most of all his time running skidder with his dad, who was his hero. He loved his community of “Red Bud” and was a proud Vermonter and American. He was a loyal and true friend. He would push the limits to feel the fullness of life but this time didn’t make the curve.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday evening March 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Cabot Funeral Home in Woodstock. A memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, March 25 at 10 a.m. at the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Windsor. A celebration of Stephen’s life will follow the service at the Reading Elementary School.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Cabot Funeral Home in Woodstock. An online guest book can be found at
