EAST WATERBORO- Jean Paul Moreau, age 70, passed away on January 13, 2012 at his home, surrounded by his family.
Jean was born in Saco, Maine, on January 11, 1942, a son of the late Joseph and Yvonne Moreau of East Waterboro. He attended Notre Dame de Lourdes School in Saco. Surviving is his second wife Florence of East Waterboro whom he has been happily married to for over 33 years. Also surviving is his first wife, Doris and their four children- Linda Davis of Hollis Center, Steven Moreau of Auburndale, FL, Brian Moreau of Warren and Janet Conibear of Pattersonville, NY. He is also survived by stepchildren- Duane Locke of Windham and Michelle Andreoli of Portland; brothers- Richard Moreau of FL and Lucien Moreau of East Waterboro; sister- Claudette Smith of East Waterboro; four grandchildren; two great grandchildren; a step-grandson; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Jean was a handyman, jack-of-all-trades in building houses, repairing automobiles and most anything else. He built his own ranch home with an open and finished basement in East Waterboro and did most of all the needed repairs. He saved everything he owned as he thought that some day he would need it. In earlier years, Jean worked construction with an independent company building houses and was employed by Maremont in Saco. Later he worked for Nike Sports Shoe in Saco as a mechanic, repairing machines for a number of years until they closed and relocated. He then worked for a construction company operating a Komatsu. He retired early due to lung cancer.
Jean and Florence were always together. Other than when they had to be separated to go to work. If one was somewhere, than the other one was by their side, whether it be putting on an addition to their house, putting shingles on the roof, and even shoveling snow off the roof. Jean and Florence enjoyed traveling in their camper going through many different states. He enjoyed fishing, camping, watching his garden produce vegetables, and gladiolas bloom; however, spending time with family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren was what was most important to him.
