Nolan James Derosier, fun-loving, freckled face and much loved son, brother, nephew and friend, left this earthly life tragically on Sunday, February 12, 2023.
He leaves his heartbroken parents, Doug and Kelly (Marquis) Derosier; his older sisters who will miss his teasing and mischievous ways, Grace, Faith, and Hope Derosier; his uncles, Rob Marquis, his wife Kerry and their children, Madelyn and McKenna and Donald Derosier, Jr., his wife Kimberly and their children, Colby and Shea and her fiancé, Travis. He also leaves his Godfather, Dave Marquis; his adopted grandparents, Cathy and Gerry McQueeney; countless friends, teammates, extended family, his church family at St. Paul Episcopal and his three-legged best buddy, “Charlie”.
A young “foodie”, Nolan loved all things seafood and anything spicy and enjoyed being an assistant chef in the kitchen. He was a lover of the outdoors, and of shadowing his Dad doing “guy stuff” including fishing, building, or repairing, all while listening to his eclectic mix of music from classic rock to old school hip-hop. Always active, he played a variety of sports including football with the Colts and baseball with Plainville Little League, and recently took an interest in golf; but most days he could be found walking at Norton Park blasting his favorite tunes. Forever 13, he was an old soul with a helpful heart, who was loved by many and will be missed beyond words.
