We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Plainville Funeral Home
Milton Guerrette, 73, of Southington, beloved Husband, Father and Pépère, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, Bangor, Maine. He was the husband of Pamela (Mickiewicz) Guerrette.
Born in St. Agatha, ME on April 13, 1949, he was the baby of nine children to the late Wilfred and Bernice (Corriveau) Guerrette. Raised in Maine, he moved to Connecticut in his late teens to join many of his siblings. He met his wife, Pam, in New Britain where they shared 52 years of marriage, raised their two daughters and became proud grandparents. Milton worked 25 years at Fafnir’s and upon closure he joined Aiudi Concrete. He enjoyed driving the big trucks as it reminded him of home on the farm. He was a care-free, loving, kind, gentle giant that never forgot a name or a face. He couldn’t go anywhere without running into a friend. He was a man of many names, whether you knew him as Milton, Mel, Moose, Mal-Come, or Bazoo, he was loved by all that knew him. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, gardening, snow-mobiling, playing cards, eating, visiting with family and friends, taking a ride to enjoy the fresh air, and watching “Law and Order” and “Vanna White.”
In addition to his wife, Pam, he leaves his children, Lorrie Steele, of Windsor; Becky Hills and her husband, Sean, of Berlin; his precious grandchildren who brought him tremendous joy, Meghan Steele, Zachary Hills, and Rowan Steele; his beloved dog, Moxie; his sister, Edwina Dube; many nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was predeceased by seven loving siblings: Angelo, Evelyn, Nelson, Nelda, Rachel, Candide, and Pauline.
