Laconia, NH- Philip E. Moreau, 91, beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend, died on December 31st, 2019, after a very brief illness. The son of the late Joseph Francois Xavier and Elizabeth Isabel (Mason) Moreau, Philip was born in East Templeton, MA, on January 12, 1928.

He enlisted in the Navy during WWII, serving in the Pacific theater. He was the holder of the Victory Medal WWII, American Theater Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and the Philippian Independence Ribbon.

Philip married Mary Lorraine Fredette, the love of his life, on Nov. 23, 1950, in Holy Rosary Church (now Annunciation Parish) in Gardner. They resided briefly in Gardner and then moved to East Templeton, where they lived and raised their family before moving to Laconia, NH in 2006, to be closer to family. They were founding members of Holy Cross Church in East Templeton and were active in church activities over the years. A skilled furniture finisher, Philip was employed at Conant and Ball and L.Z. Kamman Co. throughout most of his career, and part-time at Glenwood Kitchens of Templeton after his retirement. Philip and Mary were members of the St. Joseph’s Church of St. Andre Bessette parish in Laconia.

He loved to ski and taught his children and the neighborhood kids to ski on “Moreau Mountain.” He managed the former Ladder Hill Ski Tow and later served on the National Ski Patrol at Mt. Watatic. He skied well into his 80’s. A skilled artist, his paintings grace the walls of family and friends as well as those of the recipients of his many donations to local fundraising auctions. After he and Mary retired, they travelled to Europe, the Caribbean, and the Western States with friends.

He was predeceased by his wife, Mary, an infant daughter, Patricia, his brother and five sisters.

Philip enjoyed and was especially proud of his children, grand-children and great grand-children. Those who loved him knew him to be a kind man with a great sense of humor and a lifelong love of nature and of history.

He leaves behind three daughters and a son- Kathy Moreau Hebb and her husband Robert of Ayer, MA; Richard Moreau and his wife Diana (Ogley) of Belmont, NH; Ann Moreau Kensek and her husband Gene of Lincoln, VT; and Beth Moreau Lynch and her husband Thomas, of Sanborton, NH, in addition to 11 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family is grateful for the loving care he received at the Laconia Center, Genesis Healthcare and from the VA.

A Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Cross Church in East Templeton on May 2 at 10 a.m. followed by internment at Notre Dame Cemetery in Gardner. A reception will immediately follow at Kamalhot, 1 North Main St., in East Templeton. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the National Ski Patrol at or National Ski Patrol, 133 South Van Gordon Street, Lakewood, CO 80228.
