William "Bill" R. Chauvette

William “Bill” Chauvette 70, of Goffstown, NH, passed away after a brief illness on December 7th, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. He was born on November 9th, 1951 to the late Donald & Annette (Chaput) Chauvette, and would go on to marry his best friend and love of his life, Jacqueline Fournier, with whom he shared over 51 years of marriage.

He then worked for Continental Paving for 18 years before fully retiring in 2018 to enjoy every day as a Saturday.

Those who had the privilege of knowing Bill will remember a loyal, easy going, family-oriented man who would do anything he could for the people he loved. He always loved going on cruises with his wife Jacqueline, especially to escape the New Hampshire cold. He also enjoyed driving his side by side and watching NASCAR. Above all else, Bill loved his family immensely, and was always happiest when surrounded by the people he loved.
