ENOSBURGH — Rene L. Longley, age 21, passed away unexpectedly as a result of a farm accident on Friday, June 19, 2015 at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.

He was born in St. Albans on March 12, 1994 to Rene E. and Carrie (Deuso) Longley.

Rene grew up in Enosburgh and attended Enosburg Falls High School and Vermont Adult Learning (VAL). He was employed for most of his teenage years at NAPA in Enosburg Falls, but his passion was running equipment so he recently went to work for Rainville’s Custom Crops. Rene loved riding his snow machine and anything with wheels and a motor especially four wheelers, dirt bikes and tractors. He was a hard worker and could often be found helping his grandfather cut wood, run equipment or get ready for sugaring. Rene was a thrill seeker and loved taking jumps, doing crazy stunts and living life to the fullest!
