Marc Rochette, 75, of Wallingford CT, formerly of Jim Thorpe PA, entered into eternal rest on Monday, November 27th at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown CT. He was the beloved husband of Mary Felice “Phyllis” (Puglia)(Bolton) Rochette. Born in Chester PA, he was the son of the late Harry M. and Mary Theresa (McDonald) Rochette.
Marc received his ROTC Officer Training at San Jose College in 1970-1974. He served in The US Air Force and was stationed in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He worked at Lockheed Martin for over 21-years as a Senior Staff Hardware Engineer. He loved his job navigating satellites and he continued to work up until the end. He was an avid collector of toy trains, Egyptian artifacts and all things Disney. A day for him was not complete without Hershey’s chocolate syrup and a taco. He was a truly loving and devoted husband to Phyllis. He loved playing scrabble with his wife, spending time with his family, taking his grandkids for ice cream and doting over his beloved dog, Coco Teddy. How lucky we all were to have known this wonderful man. He will be forever missed.
Surviving in addition to his wife is a son Craig Rochette and wife Amy of Austin TX, a stepson Bill Bolton and wife Kimberly of Delran NJ, a stepdaughter Lisa McMahon Bolton and wife Shannon McMahon of East Hampton CT, a sister Denise Atchison and husband Patrick of WA, and grandchildren Addison Bolton, Megan Bolton, Gabriella Bolton and Jacob Bolton.
