Dennis C. Paquette

LEWES - Dennis C. Paquette passed away at home surrounded by the love of his family on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.

Dennis was born in Milford on September 3, 1940, son of the late Alfred and Gladys (Moore) Paquette.

He was employed for 30 years as an insurance agent for Home Beneficial.   He continued to work after retirement at separate times as a salesman for I.G. Burton of Milford and in the same position with M.V. Stevens Used Car dealership, also in Milford.

Dennis had a warm and endearing personality which made him a perfect candidate for his career choices.  He was also known for his loving commitment to his family whether it be a simple get together, holiday, time at the family beach house and boating, or planning a special trip, Dennis was always in his favorite element.

He was a member of the Milford Elks Lodge #2401, and a member of the Calvary United Methodist Church in Milford.

In addition to his parents, Dennis was preceded in death by his sister, Dolores Christensen, and a sister-in-law, Dolly Wilson.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Barbara Paquette; a son, Richard Paquette and his wife Kari; a daughter, Sherri Paquette Betts and her husband Donald; four grandchildren, Brandon Betts, Bethany Betts, Alexandra Paquette, and Colton Paquette; and a great granddaughter, Sydney Gerardi.
