AUBURN — Maurice N. Pelletier, 64, of Androscoggin Avenue, Lewiston, died Tuesday, March 31, at the Androscoggin Hospice House, surrounded by his fiancee and family after a long courageous battle with lung cancer.

He was born in Lewiston on Nov. 10, 1950, to the late Jeremy and Lucille Girardin Pelletier. Maurice was one of 13 children.

He attended Auburn schools and in his sophomore year, he quit school to work to help support his family. He was a veteran of the U. S. Army in 1972, serving in Germany.

Maurice was a welder for most of his life. In his free time, he would tackle any kind of project anyone wanted him to do. He was always there for everyone.

He was a member of St. Philip’s Church in Auburn. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and anything that would keep him outdoors. He also enjoyed having breakfast at Roy’s every morning with his friend, Emilien, and hanging out at his sister’s garage, just enjoyed being with friends.

He is survived by his significant other of 35 years, Denise Deschene; his son, Christopher; his granddaughter, Ava; four sisters, Connie, Frances, Carmen and  and Sandy and her husband, Rene; five brothers, Donald and wife, Judy, Danny, Claude, Mike and Andy; several nieces and nephews; and many friends. He will be greatly missed.

He was predeceased by his mom and dad; a sister, Marguerite King; and his brothers, Romey and Bert.

Special thanks to the staff at Androscoggin Hospice House, his awesome doctor, Dr. Jim Schneid, and his nurse, Deb O’Neil of Togus Veterans Hospice House, who took excellent care of Maurice.
