Don Denette loved to participate in life to its fullest! His priorities were God, his canine children Joshie, Maggie and Smitty, and his friends and family.

Don was a member of Ignite Church in Williston, VT. He supported its mission both here and in the Dominican Republic where he traveled to help with the church's missionary and educational activities.

With his beloved Shiba Inu, Joshie, his Icelandic Sheepdog Maggie, and his Australian Sheepdog Smitty, Don was an avid fan of dog agility. He was affiliated with the NOMAD Dog Agility Club and the Burlington Obedience Training club where he enjoyed the opportunity to play with his dogs and enjoy the companionship of other dog lovers. Don and his dogs competed in Dog Agility Competitions locally, nationally and internationally. Most recently last year, Don and Maggie qualified for and traveled to Vancouver, Canada to compete in the National Championships.

Don would frequently be found reading the Bible, a good book or studying history and geography. He also enjoyed gardening, cooking, hunting and fishing. When he Contra Danced he twirled and stomped with the best of them. While growing up in the Adirondacks, he climbed to the top of all 46 high peaks in the Adirondack Mountains, becoming a proud member of the Adirondack 46ers (#503). Don was also a member of the Burlington Sacred Harp Society.

Don loved to travel and experienced many adventures traveling to Europe and Asia as a young man. In recent years he greatly enjoyed traveling to Italy, France, Ireland and Hawaii.

Don was known to his friends as a person who loved the Lord, had a great deal of integrity, a wonderful sense of humor and could always counted on to be supportive and encouraging. He will be greatly missed.

Donations in Don’s name may be made to the Humane Society of Chittenden County, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or Light Radio Station.
