ENOSBURG - Duane Uncle Dewey Stetson, age 51, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at the UVM Medical Center in Burlington.
He was born in St. Albans on October 20, 1967, the son of Lloyd and Carolyn (Pattee) Stetson.
Duane grew up in Enosburg and graduated from Enosburg Falls High School in 1985. After graduation he worked a variety of jobs until he started his own business in 1989, Enosburg Rentals, and Trailside Motorsports where he specialized in dirt bike racing with his son by his side. He could rarely be found with idle hands and had a knack for fixing and building just about anything, earning him the reputation of being a Jack-of-All-Trades. Duane loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, riding his motorcycle and snowmobile, or anything with a motor, but what he looked forward to most recently was spending time with his granddaughters. He enjoyed being the life of the party, bringing friends and family together, and making those around him laugh. Above all, Duane will be remembered for his tremendous work ethic and his willingness to help anyone.
He is survived by his children all of which he was extremely proud of, Korie Stetson-Coons and her husband Kaiser of Richford, Shelby Curtis and her husband Joshua of Stark, NH, and Zachary Stetson and his fianc Sarah Fitzgerald of Enosburg; the mother of his children, Molly Stetson of North Stratford, NH; his cherished granddaughters Karlie, Kendall, and one more on the way; his loving parents, Lloyd and Carolyn Stetson of Enosburg; his sister, Darlene Stetson Hull and her husband James of Enosburg; his brother, Dana Stetson and his wife Jennifer of Franklin; several nieces and nephews along with their families; and countless friends who will all miss him greatly. Duane was predeceased by his grandson Kash Coons.
