Lewiston - Maurice C. Nadeau, 71, of Lewiston, Maine, passed away on Thursday August 8,2019 at his home with his loving family by his side. He was born in Lewiston on November 29, 1947, a son of the late Gerard and Margaret (Skultety) Nadeau. Following graduation from high school, he joined the U.S. Army until his honorable discharge in 1974. He was a very gifted and talented cabinet and furniture maker who was a perfectionist and took great pride in everything he built including his camp in Jackman. Although he was a very hard worker, he also took time to enjoy traveling with his wife Aline. His most memorable trip was to snowmobile in Yellowstone National Park. He was a very serious card player who also had a great love for his 1982 Corvette.

Although Maurice was not a very “touchy feely” type of man, he was very supportive and encouraged his wife’s love of socializing and he did love telling jokes and elaborating each time he retold them. Probably the most memorable event in Maurice’s life was adopting his son Tom in 1998 when Tom was 27 years old. This had a profound impact on both of their lives.

Maurice is survived by his wife Aline of Lewiston, three sons: Thomas Nadeau and wife Sue, Michael Robitaille and wife Regina, Frank Robitaille and wife Debbie, 10 grandchildren: Jonathan Robitaille, Matthew Robitaille, Melanie Robitaille, Jacob Robitaille, Tyler Robitaille, Madison Nadeau, Camden Nadeau, Charlie Rae Nadeau, Nicholas Allen, Michael Allen, 2 brothers: Gerry Nadeau and Richard Nadeau Maurice was predeceased by his parents.

I am doing the music for the service on Saturday so I checked to see who the deceased was. It must’ve been the Holy Spirit who guided me here and to be the one at this service. Maurice custom made our daughter’s bureau and bed. Funny story about the bureau, which he made when I was still expecting. We asked that he make it to fit in the slant of our A-frame walls. So it is quite large. What we all didn’t figure in was how it would fit through the doors. So he had to take it apart and reassemble it in her room. It’s been 15 years and we still chuckle about it and marvel at his work. We had him make the bed once she was ready for a regular one. And we were just as pleased with the craftsmanship. God bless him. May he RIP.

My husband, Larry, was a great friend of Maurice. In their younger days, they did many things together. That is how I met Maurice. I know they went out to clubs, fished, bowled, and motorcycled. I remember Maurice came to visit us in Minot at our new mobile home about 1985. He had a Goldwing, I believe, and ended up dumping it in the soft driveway. He was NOT happy. We had a good laugh about it. He visited Larry before he passed. It was very emotional for both because their friendship had been for so long. My hope, now, is the Larry, Maurice, and Norm Poirier are all together talking over old times , enjoying a brew, an playing cribbage. I miss them all.

The house is quiet this afternoon.. Maurice no longer needs me to rub his back where he cannot reach, no longer needs me to get him a big glass of water because he is always very thirsty, no longer needs me to sit by his bed and hold his hand while he sleeps. The journey we took together these last 2 months has been a sad one but with the help of Androscoggin Hospice, it all made it doable. Keeping him at home with their help is a gift that I have been given. Sleep well Maurice.
