July 1, 1953 – November 24, 2019
It is with great sadness that I, Karen, share the passing of my husband Luke Guerette (66). Luke was born in Sinclair, Maine and was the son of the late Albert and Eva (Derosier) Guerette. Beloved brother of Doreen Lacasse of Augusta, ME, Theresa Martin of Forestville, CT, Joanne Plourde of Ft. Kent, ME, and Bernadette and her husband David Capella of Newington, CT. Luke also leaves behind his father-in-law Roger Michaud, a sister-in-law Denise and Nelson Stone of OK, as well as, many many nieces, nephews, including special nephew DJ Capella, cousins and dear friends. Luke is predeceased by his brothers; Herman, Ferdinand, Gilman, and Louis Guerette; and sisters Dora, Jeannine, and Lucille. A proud veteran, Luke served in the US Army. Luke worked in New Britain for 27 years until his retirement from the US Postal Service. Known as a real "MacGyver", there was nothing Luke couldn't do. Luke enjoyed spending time in the yard and gardening. A perfectionist, Luke wouldn't quit until the job was to his standards. A special thanks to the staff at UConn Health-John Dempsey Hospital floors two and six for their compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Luke's name to American Lung Association, 45 Ash St, East Hartford, CT 06108. A time of visitation will be held Friday, November 29 from 9:30-11:30 am at New Britain Memorial-Sagarino Funeral Home, 444 Farmington Ave, New Britain, CT, followed by his Funeral Liturgy at 12PM at St. Katharine Drexel Parish, Church of St. Jerome, 1010 Slater Rd, New Britain, CT. Burial will be held at a later time. For directions or an online condolence, please visit www.newbritainsagarino.com.

Luke was a wonderful man and a great friend, especially to my children, Alexandra and Matthew. He always took time for them when they came over and probably gave him more breaks from yard work than he probably wanted. He will be missed.
