Paul R. Cloutier, 52, formerly of Whiting


WOODSTOCK, Conn. — Paul R. Cloutier, 52, of Woodstock, Conn., passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 22, 2023. Paul was born Oct. 6, 1970, in Middlebury, Vt., to Rolland Cloutier and Judith (Desrocher) Cloutier.

Paul had great love for and fun with his family and friends. He loved the outdoors, hunting, scuba diving and teaching it to others. He loved family most of all.

He volunteered at the Muddy Brook Fire Department in Woodstock and two years later he joined the Webster, Mass., Fire Department as a fulltime firefighter. He was a very happy-go-lucky person who loved to play practical jokes on his friends. Paul grew up in Whiting, Vt., went to Otter Valley Union High School and graduated from Middlebury Union High School in 1989. He moved to Massachusetts that same year and had two children from his first marriage (Quinton and Victoria). He married Alison Scott in 2012.

Paul was predeceased by his father, Rolland Cloutier, and his brother, Ronald Cloutier. Paul is survived by his wife, Ali; son Quinton and daughter Victoria Cloutier; mother Judith; and sister Karen Cloutier along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and very close friends.

He truly enjoyed helping others, and he took care of his mother following the death of his father in 2020. He would often make trips to Vermont to care for and check in on his mother.

Paul is being honored by services at both the Webster and Muddy Brook Fire Departments. Committal services will be held in the spring at St. Mary’s in Middlebury, Vt. Details will be announced closer to that date.

Please make any memorial contributions to the Webster Fire Department at 55 Thompson Rd., Webster, MA 01570, and/or Muddy Brook Fire Department at 93 Woodstock Rd., Woodstock, CT 06281.◊
