Lawrence Earl “Moe” Harrington, 85, a resident of Burgess Road, Bennington, died Sunday March 24, 2019 at the Vermont Veterans Home surrounded by his family following a long illness.

Born in Bennington April 19, 1933, he was the son of the late Earl and Delia (Maynard) Harrington. Moe received his education in the Bennington schools and later took extension courses from LaSalle University.

A Korean war veteran, he served in the U. S. Army from 1950-1952. Moe married the former Millie Morse in North Bennington on July 21, 1951.

In earlier years Moe was employed at Ben Mont Paper /Flint Ink Company, as an ink formulator and tech representative and traveled throughout New England and Eastern New York. He later worked for 31 years at Westfield Coatings Corp in Westfield, MA where his area was increased to the entire United States and northeast Canada.

Moe was a very active member of the community and served on many local boards including both the Mt. Anthony Union School District and Woodford District school boards, the Bennington Town Charter Committee, Bennington Justice of the Peace and Town Moderator in Woodford.

Moe was a Life Member and Past Commander of VFW Post 1332 in Bennington, a Past Master of Taconic Grange and a member of both American Legion Post 13 and Moose Lodge 1223. His hobbies included fishing, hunting, politics, country music, song writing and performing. Moe was recognized by the House of Representatives for the State of Vermont in a resolution recognizing his civic and musical contributions to his town and his state.

Survivors include his wife, Millie Harrington of Bennington; six children, Michael L. (Debbie) Harrington of Bennington, Kim M. Harrington of Arlington, Christopher A. (Jennifer) Harrington of White Creek, NY, Bonnie Lee Harrington of Bennington, Colleen M. Harrington of Bennington and Brian E.

Moe was a good man with great insight and humor. He enjoyed to entertain and I remember some 18 years ago scanning the TV programs, I came to a senior talent show as they announced the next contestant, Moe Harrington! This was on a local Tampa FL channel and I thought, this can't be the same Moe I know but it was and he had the crowed moving. To all his family, my condolences for your loss. I'm sure Moe is entertaining a much larger crowd now. Tim Dailey New Port Richey, FL

I loved Moe's music and have one of his CDs that I listen to often. He was so talented. Janice Gould

Some of my fondest memories as a kid was when we went to the Bennington Armory or a wedding reception and listened to Moe Harrington and his band. As a young man, I didn't know where country music came from, only that Moe could sing all of it from deep down in his heart. He will be missed here but the angels in heaven will be in better tune.
