Maurice A. “Moe” Trottier, of Nashua, died Tuesday July 27 at home, after a period of declining health. He was lovingly cared for by Fern Bouley, his life partner of 35 years.
Moe was a lifelong resident of Nashua and a career firefighter. He was born July 26, 1927 in Nashua to the late Alphee and Martha (Laraine) Trottier. He was educated in Nashua schools and was a communicant of St. Louis Catholic Church.
He was a veteran, having proudly served his country for four years in the U.S. Navy. He was married to Jean R. Constant, who preceded him in death in 1985. He began his career with the Nashua Fire Department in 1951, first as a Call Firefighter and then appointed to the rank of Private in 1953. Over the years, he was promoted to Lieutenant and finally Captain. After retirement, he served as a Fire Commissioner for many years.
Moe was always quick with a smile and a joke. He enjoyed hunting, bowling, bicycling and traveling with Fern Bouley, with whom he spent the winter months in Florida for many years.
He was predeceased by his brothers, Armand, Noel and Adrien (Bill). He was the loving Uncle Maurice to many nieces and nephews and their families, who will miss him dearly.
