Drew D. Benoit

1975-2015 BRATTLEBORO Drew David Benoit, 40, a resident of Brattleboro passed away peacefully at his home on March 11 in the early morning. Drew was born in Brattleboro, Vt. on January 14, 1975 to his very proud parents, Barbara Dorothy Egbert Benoit and David Benoit. At that very moment the world became a better place. Drew attended the Neighborhood Schoolhouse and Green Street School as a child. Drew attended Brattleboro Union High School and graduated in 1993. Drew also attended Le Cordon Bleu in Dover, N.H. where he received his Culinary Arts Degree in 2000. On October 10, 1997 Drew met Jennie Warren and their love story began. Drew and Jennie were best friends, soul mates and inseparable. Drew and Jennie loved life to the fullest, as long as they were together. Anyone who ever witnessed their love of each other understood true love. Drew made every moment, kiss, or embrace count with Jennie. They were the meaning of love. Drew and Jennie were married September 19, 1998 at the All Souls Church in West Brattleboro, Vt. Drew's talent was infinite. He was an amazing artist, chef, comedian, and musician. Drew found his love of music as a young boy when he picked up the violin and began to play. Drew then moved on to the guitar as a teenager he formed many bands with friends and named one of them Medicine Bag. Band practice was at his house after school. Drew could sing the blues or totally rock out, the house came alive to his jam sessions. Drew had an amazing sense of humor no matter what obstacle he faced he could find the funny in anyone or anything. Anyone that met Drew know he was one funny guy. During holiday dinners with family he would often look across the table at his sister and just by a glance start a laughing fit that just wouldn't stop. Drew's laughter was contagious. One of Drew's dreams in life was to do stand-up comedy and he accomplished that in November 2014. Drew had a real knack for cooking. He was often found in the kitchen preparing the most mouth watering meal you've ever tasted. Drew always offered the food he had cooked to share and savor with his friends and family. Drew's art work was unique and every piece had an aspect of Drew in it. Paint or charcoal this man created beauty on paper. Drew was a true creator no matter what tool he was holding, a paintbrush, guitar, chef knife, or a microphone he rose to every occasion and never missed a beat. One of Drew's favorite pass times was gaming. Drew connected with the gaming community on a real level. He would play Halo with his wife and friends, it became another one of Drew's creative outlets. Drew had a special connection to his family. As a child Drew and his father would enjoy fishing for bass together. The weekends were filled with joy for Drew and his dad while fishing. Drew caught some real beauties in his lifetime, yet his favorite part was the time he was spending with his father on the water. He was a devoted son who loved and cared for his mother when she needed him the most. Drew always looked out for his little sister whom he loved so much. Drew is survived by his wife, Jennie Benoit of Brattleboro; father, David, mother, Barbara, and sister Claire Renaud of Guilford; nieces, Sophia, Audrey, Paige of Guilford, and his grandmother, Dorothy Egbert. Drew has many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Drew was predeceased by grandparents, Sophia Benoit and Frank Benoit, and his grandfather, Reverend Nelson Egbert who he spent time with playing chess and watching movies on many afternoons. His wisdom resonated in everything Drew did. Anyone who ever met Drew will remember his absolute zest for life and quick wit. The impact of his hove remains in his family and friends for eternity. Drew will be remembered and cherished every time the sun warms us, the wind blows on our faces, or when listening to music that gives us goose bumps, and when we taste a great meal. Drew is love. The Celebration of Life Ceremony will be on May 24 at Claire Renaud's house at 147 Marymuk Rd,. Guilford at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers donate to Hospice VNH, 66 Benning Street, Suite 6, West Lebanon, NH 03784.
