WASHINGTON, NH: Benjamin David Fauteux, 23, of Washington, NH passed away unexpectedly on Friday, October 11, 2019, due to a house fire a week before his 24th birthday.
He was born on October 18, 1995 in Nashua, NH to Bonnie Fauteux-LaCasse and Dick Fauteux.
Ben went to Washington Elementary and Hillsboro-Deering School District.
He worked at Pats Peak as a full time employee and made snow during the winter months. Benjamin loved his job. He loved working outside in the fresh air, night or day, rain or snow.
Ben was a fun, loving father to his beautiful son Emerson. Emerson was his greatest joy in life, his little ray of sunshine. There was nothing more important in his world to him than his “lil fishing buddy.” Benjamin was a family man. He loved with all his being and cherished every moment with his son, family and friends. He could put a smile on your face at any time of day. His laugh could fill the biggest room with smiles. He enjoyed many hobbies but most of all spending time with those he enjoyed those hobbies with.
In his free time, he was always outdoors; fishing, kayaking, hiking or camping. He loved all the seasons we have, even when they were a bit off. Benjamin was strong, hardworking, loyal, loving, passionate, smart, funny and the list goes on. He will be so deeply missed by all those he crossed paths with.
He was a forgiving brother, a loving son, a caring uncle and an awesome friend. Ben will be missed by many.
He leaves behind his mother Bonnie Fauteux-LaCasse, his two older brothers, Derek Ellstrom and Caleb Fauteux, his nephew, Nicholas Peter Ellstrom, his little sister, Emi Lou Fauteux, and many, many, many, friends.
Services and burial will be held at the convenience of the family.
The Holt-Woodbury Funeral Home & Cremation Service Hillsboro, NH is assisting the family.
