Mr. Paquette was an honorable and devotional man. His family was the most important thing to him. He valued the relationships that he built and cherished every second he had with his granddaughter. What a beautiful person to have in one’s life. I am and forever will be honored to have known him in my teen years. All of the times Nicole and I had spent together at her house growing up, are fondly remembered. All of my love to his family and friends are being sent.

Dear Paquette Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Peter at OLV and also saw him many times at St. Denis. We have had many conversations about anything from hockey, politics, and religion. I have moved to Florida so I will not be at the wake, but know that I will keep him and you in my prayers. God bless! Maria Rocheleau

Dear Paquette Family, Myself and all of us at Hockey Night In Auburn want to send our deepest Condolences to you and your family. Peter (Big Chara) loved to be a part of the Hockey League. Peter and I play together way back in the 70's and to get back on the ice together was a truly wonderful experience. I think we talked more about Frank Zappa more then hockey! Again from all of us at Hockey Night in Auburn and myself our Deepest Condolences to you and your family. Oh by the way We did win the Championship game on Wednesday Night. The boys played the game in Peter's Honor.

Peter used to come into North Main Variety in Uxbridge when I worked there, way back in the early 90's. He was always very friendly and memorable. I never knew him outside of the store; it was nice to read how much of a great man he was and how he will be remembered. My sympathies are with your family. XOXO

Dear Paquette Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. My daughters went to OLV and I coached the cross country team at OLV. I would see and talk to Peter after school about training, hockey and religion. I often think of him, and the conversations we had. I will keep you and him in my prayers. God bless!
