VERGENNES – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Glen Alan Deyette on December 28, 2022, at the age of 74. He passed away in the comfort of his own home with his loving wife and family by his side.
Glen was born on July 21,1948, in Burlington, Vermont to Ellen and Richard Deyette. He grew up in Winooski and Burlington, and graduated from Burlington High School.
Glen is survived by his devoted wife and partner of 45 years, Leisa (Aunchman) Deyette, daughters Julie (Mark) Parent, Tammy (Jason) Bluto, and Angela Deyette; grandchildren Shane, Scottie, Nick, Chrystian, Joe, Chris, and Kianna; great grandchildren Karly, Skyler, Chace, Brooke, Mya and Ava; siblings Julie (Wes) Larkin, Steve Deyette, Sheri (Bruce) Willette, and Dean (Becky) Deyette; in-laws Alroy (Marilyn) Aunchman, Sis (Michael) Babcock, Pam (Richard) Maynard, Cheryl (George) Cox, and several nieces and nephews. His brother-in-law, Elroy Aunchman and his partner Melissa Sullivan, and Elroy’s children Brittany, Tamara, Maranda, and Jacob, were incredibly special to him and were a treasured part of his life. Glen was predeceased by his parents Ellen and Richard Deyette, brothers Rick and Dana Deyette, and sister Frances Deyette.
Nothing meant more to Glen than spending time with family. He had a contagious laugh and the sweetest smile ever. He loved to reminisce and was an amazing story teller. Whether you knew him as husband, dad, brother, uncle, grandpa, or friend, he loved each and every one of his family and friends with all of his heart.
Along with visiting with family and friends, he also enjoyed building model cars and collecting trains. His favorite baseball team was the New York Yankees. He loved to play Kismet and Monopoly and was always willing to challenge anyone to a game.
Inspired by his favorite band, The Beatles, he saved up his money, bought his first bass guitar, and taught himself how to play and sing just by listening to music. He went on to play in several local bands, most notably Excalibur, which had a large following.
Glen worked for many years as warehouse foreman at Harrington Brothers and was very proud of the position he held there.
We will forever cherish all of the memories and his unconditional love in our hearts.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
