PAUL R. OUELLET – BUCKEYE, AZ
SEPTEMBER 7, 1957 – MARCH 4, 2022
The angel of death entered the home of Paul Ouellet, taking our beloved to the heavens above, on March 4, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer. Paul was 64 years young, and was born in Berlin, NH, the son of Lucien and Cecile (Vallee) Ouellet. He was raised and educated in Berlin, and was a US Army veteran.
Paul worked as a truck driver for ‘Fat Cat’ United Van Lines, as a mechanic, as a blaster for Maine Drilling & Blasting for several years, and as a maintenance person at Whitefield Power and Light for nearly 30 years, right before moving to Arizona 11 years ago, where he was a metal fabricator and welder.
Paul enjoyed riding his HD, being a jokester, and tinkering with metal and wood. He had a great sense of humor, always had a smile, and would sing and beat the drums (with whatever he may have had in his hand) to the tunes on the radio. Looking past his rough exterior, he was very caring and loving, would do anything to help, and always had a story to tell. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Family includes his wife, Denise (Cate) Ouellet of Berlin, NH; brothers Gary Ouellet and companion Janet of Dummer, NH; Carl Ouellet and wife Jennifer of Berlin; Marc Ouellet and companion Jayme of Hooksett, NH; and brother Robert Ouellet of Errol, NH; several nieces, nephews, and greats. Paul was predeceased by his mother Cecile Ouellet, father Lucien ‘Babe’ Ouellet, brother Richard Ouellet, and sister-in-law Michelle Ouellet.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 1 PM at the Bryant & Fleury-Patry Funeral Home, 180 Hillside Ave., Berlin. Interment will follow in the St. Kieran Cemetery.
