LEBANON, NH — FARE THEE WELL . . . Devoted father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and family man. He was outgoing and made friends wherever he went. He lived life to the fullest. Riding his Harley since he was 18, attending concerts, music festivals, including Grateful Dead, Further, Dead and Company. Camping, amusement parks, fairs, campfires, playing frisbee, grilling, being outdoors spending time with family and friends.

He passed peacefully at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center's Jack Byrne Center on October 8, 2019, at 1:45 p.m., with his family by his side. He was 58 years young. He was born at Alice Peck Day in Lebanon, NH, on May 31, 1961.

He is survived by his shepherd "Chip"; his ex-wife Terri Sexton and their children, Jessica Orton, Jennifer Collins, Kris Sexton, Jr., Kurtis Sexton and Karl Sexton; his grandchildren, Michael Freedle, Alison and Katelyn Collins, Kloie and Savannah Sexton; his fiancee Ann Corrette and her children, Maizey Corrette, Kyle Piper, Andrew Piper and Alyssa Quiniby; and his brothers, Bruce Scott, Jr., and Kyle Scott and his children, Kaylee, Coda and Amelia; and Uncle Chuck Decato.

He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather Robert Sexton; his grandparents Kenneth and Pauline Decato; and his mother Sandra Ann (Sexton) Scott.

He began his truck driving career at 18 years old at Decato Bros. in Lebanon, NH, and dedicated his career driving 6 million miles over the past 40 years. He retired at Notts Excavating in Hartford, VT in 2019.

His remains were cremated as he wished. There will be a celebration of life on August 1, 2020, at his friends' farm in Hartland, VT. We will enjoy the day as he wished by sharing his memories listening to Grateful Dead and having a party in his honor with his friends and family. Details will be given at a later date.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the sendoff, Rev It Up for Kris Sexton Parade, on October 8th.
