Chadwick (Chad) A. Desilets

December 15, 1971 ~ February 15, 2019 (age 47)

Chadwick (Chaddo) Desilets, resident of North Berwick, ME passed away on February 14, 2019 at the age of 47.


Chad was born December 15, 1971 in Sanford, ME and graduated from Marshwood High School and the University of Maine.  Chad was employed at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.


Chad loved football and music.  He knew and loved the game of football and was a huge Patriots fan.  He rejoiced at the Patriots victory at this year’s Super Bowl.  Chad loved music and was usually wearing earphones and listening to his favorite tunes.  Chad’s favorite times were those spent at the Lu, listening to Martin England and the Reconstructed band.  He was definitely a groupie.  In recent years, Chad volunteered for Continuum Arts Collective (a non profit that assists underserved, school-aged artists and musicians in Maine; providing them with instruments, supplies and lessons) and was passionate about his work.


Chad was a gentle soul with a huge heart.  He was loved by many for his big smile and desire to help anyone in need.  Chad struggled throughout his life with serious medical issues but never complained and never wanted to be a burden.  He will be missed beyond words by his parents, Vicki and Gerry Desilets and fur-sister, Chrissy.  He is survived by his much loved Great Aunt Dot, Aunt Rachel Desilets and partner Paulette Petelle, Aunt Jude Rilling,  cousins Jennifer Lambert and Hector Pettersen, Aimee Lambert and Jeremy Lew; second cousins Anna, Esmeralda, Bea and Benicio to whom he was known as Uncle Chad.  He is also survived by his “adopted” family, Jen and Marty England and all of the Lu Nation.


A celebration  of Chad’s life will be held at the South Berwick Senior Center, 71 Norton Street, South Berwick on Saturday February 23, at 1PM.   In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Continuum Arts Collective, 76 Lower Main Street, North Berwick  03906      Arrangements are entrusted to the Johnson Funeral Home, North Berwick.  Condolences may be expressed at
