Wilfred P. Surette, loving husband of Susan Surette, passed away at home on June 6, 2021. Born in Eel Brook, Nova Scotia, Wilfred was one of twelve siblings of the late John and Anne Surette. Wilfred was an avid golfer and former member of Wenham Country Club. He also loved to spend time at his favorite place, Fox Hill Yacht Club in Saugus. He will be remembered as someone who loved to tell stories of his childhood, growing up in rural Nova Scotia. He was a great bowler and card player, enjoyed all sports, particularly hockey, and treasured the many hunting trips with family and friends in Cambridge, Maine. He was a person who truly loved his immediate and extended family more than anything in this world. Any time spent with a family member was a special time to him. He is survived by his five children: William (Evangelyn) Surette of Ipswich, Shawn Surette of Lynn, Andree (Vincent) Thorne of Lynn, Therese (John) Collins of Beverly and Joseph (Tracy) of Georgetown and ten grandchildren: Marykate, Kevin, Justin, Eric, Linnea, Ryan, Caroline, Jake, Luke and Mary. Also surviving are his stepchildren Ellen (Lee) Wilson of Jupiter, FL; Kathy (Andy) Strutt of West Newbury; and Steven MacDonald of Danvers, along with grandchildren: Olivia, Grace, and Celia Wilson and Reese, and Maddox MacDonald. Wilfred is survived by his three sisters: Jeanette Gregory of Ipswich, Phyllis Gaudet of Beverly and Odile Surette of Middleton, as well as many nieces and nephews. Wilfred was predeceased by his first wife Mary Catherine Surette, his brothers Peter, Roger, Hector, Nil and his sisters Lorraine, Rosalie, Hermeline, and Josephine.
