Frederick "Fred" C. Maier

March 15, 1931October 13, 2020

Frederick C. Maier, born in Wellesley, MA, died of natural causes at home in Norwood on October 12 at age 89.

Survived by his daughters Lisa (Michael, Ethan and Natalie) and Kim (Presley, Kate and Emily), as well as family members Laurie Lauda (Mark, Meg, Kristen and Madison) and Michael Devine (Melissa, Haley and Derek). He was predeceased by his soulmate Margaret Simmons, whom he missed every day.

A long-time resident of Dover, MA, where he was a Selectman, Fred was committed to community, family and friends. These include his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephew of whom he was so proud, neighbors at Washington Court, the extended Devine/Hayes family who welcomed him and became such an important part of his life, and treasured, life-long friends from Norwich University.

Fred’s company, Griffin Paper, and his colleagues at Pagell Corporation, kept him happily going to the office until the time of his death.

Full of energy, always ready for a good conversation, and quick with a laugh and a kindness, Fred will be missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Camp Belknap, Norwich University or The Trustees of Reservations.

I met Fred, 55 years ago. My first sales call to JL Hammet in Braintree, MA.

I was wet behind the ears, and Fred recognized my nervousness immediately.

He said, "come on kid, let me show you what we do here".

From that day, we became the best of friends. Every paper show or convention, I would be with Fred, who would introduce me to everyone, as his associate.

Fred's reputation was that of a clean cut and very honest person, who always took time to hear what was on your mind, and then give you contacts and information that might help you. He always had time for others.

We would meet every year and share stories of our careers and talk on the phone very 90 days, always ending with "love you"

I will miss you very much Freddie...Love you
