Frederick U. Hotte, 74, of Shoreham


SHOREHAM — It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frederick U. Hotte, 74, of Shoreham, Vt., on June 14, 2022.

Fred was born in Cornwall, Vt., the son of Simon J. and Helen (Naylor) Hotte. He grew up on a farm with his brothers and sisters. He attended Middlebury Union High School and retired from the State Highway Department.

He was an avid hunter; he loved horses, raising beagles, fishing and tending his garden. His greatest joy, though, was being surrounded by family.

He leaves behind his wife Debbie Hotte; his sister Theresa Wright; his children Darcie Arensmeyer (Dan), David Hotte; his step-children Jennifer Boujoulian (Jeff), Amy Loppe (Louis) and Bradley Bergevin (Ruth); and 13 beloved grandchildren.

A service will be held at Sanderson Funeral Home in Middlebury, Vt., on Saturday, June 25, at 10 a.m. For health reasons the family will not be hosting a reception. A private burial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Diabetes Foundation at — dedication can be sent to Darcie Arensmeyer at ◊
