Obituary

Dennis J. Clapp, 67, longtime Auburn resident, passed away on Wednesday July 8th, 2020.

Dennis is survived by his wife of 44 years, Patricia M. (Fahey), the love of his life; his son and best friend, Justin; and his sister, Marie Ceppetelli of Webster. He was predeceased by his parents, John H. and Georgette A. (Paradis) Clapp.

He graduated from Holy Name High School, and the Worcester Boys Trade Electrical course. Upon completing graduation, he joined the 101st Air National Guard unit in Worcester as an Electronics Technician. Dennis worked for Wright Line, Wyman Gordon, and Stearns Electric – from which he retired – as an Industrial Electrician.

Dennis had a passion for trains, building model trucks and computers; enjoyed gardening and tending to his yard; and sharing many interests and hobbies with his son.

Dennis was a fortunate recipient for a double lung transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2018. Complications followed, but were conquered one at a time.

The family would like to extend a big thank you to everyone at Massachusetts General Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation, and the VNA for their devoted care. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the ASPCA (aspca.org/ways-to-give).

Per Dennis’s wishes, there will be no calling hours. Services will be private. The Britton-Wallace Funeral Home in Auburn, MA is honored to be assisting with arrangements.

Patty and Justin:
I am so sorry to hear about Dennis. I think back to when I would watch Justin as a little boy and I remember Dennis as a wonderful father, husband and a kind man. I’m sure he is watching over both of you now.

Dear Patty, I was sorry to learn from Chris Paradise that Dennis had passed away. Although, I had not seen Dennis in years, I have fond memories of hanging out together with him and the other Paradise cousins at my Grandparents house. My heart goes out to you and your son, Jason. May you find peace and comfort in the coming days ahead knowing others care.
Peace, Charlene Paradise

Dennis and I were both in the 101 Air Control Squadron and went to boot camp together and after that were both at Keesler AFB for our schooling and were room mates there. He was an awesome friend, a really great guy, we had a lot of good times back then. Really sorry for your loss.
