Dennis was a beloved member of the milk industry - everyone knew him and everyone enjoyed working with him. I too worked with Dennis at Eastern in the mid-80's. He could put a smile on anyone's face and enjoyed telling stories, especially about deer hunting. Dennis would reconcile the monthly producer payroll for the MA reporting and when he found himself off 2 cents, he'd simply tape 2 pennies to the general ledger page and call it good. He particularly enjoyed working with Chuck and Kathy at NEDCO or the boys at Dairylea/the League - he loved both the comradry and the competition. He once told me the story of while driving his car one night, he had to stop because there were deer in the road - next thing he knew, Kenny had fired his double-barreled dart gun at the deer from the back seat and the 2 darts hit the inside of the windshield. He was particularly proud of the 12 pt buck Ken shot that year hunting down near New Woodstock on the same state lands I used to hunt on. Yes indeed, Dennis was a unique North Countryman and no doubt will be sorely missed by all those who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends. Rest in peace Dennis LaDuc -the famed Frenchman from the North. Mike Boyer and family.

Marie, Ken, Cheryl and family.
So sorry to hear that Dennis passed. He and I worked together for many years at Eastern Milk. He was always in a good mood. Was great friends with all. He made the best coffee and I will always think of him jingling his change in his pocket through the hallways. Makes me smile We talked a lot about hunting ,fishing and tramping through the woods. He loved the outdoors and Crogan Bologna , Harrisville and his camp.
Rest in peace Dennis and walk in the sunset.

Ann
