Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Maurice was a very loving and generous man. He enjoyed music, playing drums, sitting by a campfire, dancing in his younger days and going on little trips in his RV. He had a love for cars and spent many hours meticulously detailing them. He enjoyed spoiling his grandchildren and spending time with his four sons. The family will not be the same without their grand-papa. In keeping with Maurice’s wishes, there will be no visitation; a Funeral Mass and Celebration of Life will be celebrated on November 27, 2021 at 11 a.m. at Église St-Joseph in Chelmsford. Due to the pandemic, masks are mandatory. Those that cannot attend can view the livestream ceremony on Alain Prévost’s Facebook page.
