Alain Robert Karyo, of Evergreen Drive, Bennington, Vermont, passed away in the early morning of Tuesday, August 6th. He was 75 years old. Alain was the widower of the late Irene Karyo, who passed July 2018. He was a father of 5, grandfather of 9 and great-grand father of 2.

Alain was born in Paris, France on March 21, 1944 to Sonya and Ernest Karyo. His family emigrated to America when he was a teen. After high school, Alain received a degree in Art and Design at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY. Although he received a degree in art as a young man, Alain was creative, innovative and proved to be a true artist his entire life.

Alain met the love of his life, Irene, in North Adams, Massachusetts, where Alain was starting a business in a small space. The business today is a nation-wide, wholesale company known as Catamount Glass of Bennington. Recently added to Catamount Glass is the Tap house which was based on the concept of serving craft beers of those who Catamount Glass serviced via custom imprinting . It has grown from there.
Alain had a strong passion for life and his family. He enjoyed Lake Champlain on his sail boat and he loved to travel. He cherished time with his children, grandchildren and great grand children. His latest endeavor in the arts was metal sculpting

He leaves behind two brothers and a sister, Maurice Karyo, Bernard Karyo and Reine Penzer. His children: Adam Volpi, Todd Volpi, Jason Volpi, Ghislaine Karyo and Gui Karyo. Grand children: Kristina Volpi, Justin Volpi, Jacob Volpi, Zachary Volpi, Lauren Volpi, Brandon Volpi, Jessica Volpi, Sonia and Remy Karyo. Great-grand children: Ethan and Skyler Volpi. .

Alain recently shared a special, short-lived, loving relationship with Joanne Smith, of New Hampshire.
He will be truly missed.

A Graveside service will be held Friday, August 9th at Park Lawn Cemetery, 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to MAUMS, Mosaic Afterschool and Summer Programs, 747 East Road, Bennington, Vermont 05201
