Neil G. Rochette, 72, of Lorain, passed away on Monday July 5, 2021 at The Woods on French Creek in Avon after a long illness and while under the care of Hospice of the Western Reserve. 

Neil was born in Hartford, Connecticut on September 17, 1948 to Arthur and Margaret (O’Neill) Rochette.  After high school he trained to become a master toolmaker and inspector, working for several machine shops in Connecticut, including his own.  He lived most of his adult life in Newington, CT until moving to Lorain in 2007.

He was an engaging storyteller with a wit both razor sharp and lightning fast.  He was a gifted mechanic, had an encyclopedic knowledge of history, and was an avid collector and restorer of classic cars.  He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.  Special thanks go to The Woods of French Creek and Hospice of the Western Reserve for their loving care of Neil during his final days.

He was predeceased by his parents as well as his older brother Arthur (Dorothy) Rochette of Enfield, CT.  He is survived by his beloved wife of 11 years Cheryl Rochette (nee Boone) of Lorain, his children Scott (Kathy) Rochette of Brockport, NY, Jason (Sharon) Rochette of New Britain, CT, Daniel Rochette of East Lyme, CT, Alexander (Samantha) Green of Willowick and Grace Green of Lorain.  He leaves behind five grandchildren: Dustin Rochette of Brockport, NY, Mara and Emma Rochette of East Lyme, CT, and Domenic and Anthony Green of Willowick.  He is also survived by his first wife Pam (Howard) Briggs of Hebron, CT.
