Paul E. Estabrook, (57) of Hinesburg VT passed away suddenly on Thursday, August 29. Paul was a loving husband, brother, father and Papa. He was a man that could fix anything. If he couldn't fix it, it couldn't be fixed. He was always willing to help friends and family to test his skills. In the past 6 years if you came across Paul you would see him with his sidekick and faithful companion, Sassy.
He was born in White River Junction, VT on March 17, 1962. Graduate of Hartford High School in 1980. He joined the Navy after high school and served for 8 years where he learned the trade of a mechanic. For several years he entered the trade of heating, ventilating and air conditioning technician. In 2004 he met the love of his life, Lena, and they married in June of 2007. They knew immediately that they were soulmates. Lena always said that it was her father, Conrad, that placed Paul in her life to take his place of spoiling her. Unfortunately he developed cancer in his larynx and he lost his voice box. Being the fighter that he was he survived the cancer and resumed the life of tinkering and Mr. Fix It.
Paul is survived by his wife of 12 years, Lena Estabrook; son Michael Estabrook, his wife Shannon and 2 daughters; daughter Dottie Cudworth, husband Doug and 1 daughter & 1 son; son Matthew Estabrook, wife Rebecca; step-son Clifford Gordon and 2 sons; sisters Kelly Estabrook and her 2 daughters; Cindy Kent, husband Dan and daughter; half-sister Jennifer Ann Hurd, husband Chris and 3 daughters; and step siblings Michelle Greenough, husband George and 2 sons; Vicki (Jackson) Dion and son; Sharon (Jackson) Hawkins and daughter and son; and Tom Swahn, wife Patty and 2 daughters; sister-in-law, Debbie Raush and 2 sons.
