Obituary for Maurice L. Kennedy

Maurice L. Kennedy – WINSLOW
On Thursday, August 15, 2019, Maurice “Moe” Kennedy, loving husband and father of three children, passed away surrounded by his family at the age of 85. Maurice was born in North Vassalboro on February 28th, 1934, to Harold G. Kennedy and Orena E. (Poulin) Kennedy, the third of five children. He attended school in North Vassalboro and Winslow High School. He received his G.E.D. as an adult.
Maurice married Geraldine J. Grondin on May 15th, 1954, in Waterville and together they raised three children. He worked at Hollingsworth & Whitney, later known as Scott Paper Company, for 36 years, retiring in June of 1989.
Maurice was an avid hunter and fisherman for many years and enjoyed being outdoors. He also loved gardening, both flowers and vegetables, and some said instead of having a ‘green thumb,’ he had a ‘green hand.’ We all benefitted from his annual harvest of vegetables. He was also very handy and could fix just about anything.
He enjoyed spending time with family and attended many of his children’s and grandchildren’s activities. He played the guitar and harmonica, and loved to dance with his wife, Gerry.
Maurice and Gerry enjoyed traveling throughout their married life. They took several cruises to the Caribbean and Alaska and visited many cities throughout the United States and Canada. They also visited several countries in Europe and spent many winters in Hawaii.
He was predeceased by his parents, Harold and Orena Kennedy, his sisters, Joan Boulette and Marlene Rogers of California and Oregon, and his brothers, Harold Kennedy of California and Waterville, and Robert E. Kennedy of Winslow.
Moe is survived by his wife of 65 years, his daughter, Cathy (Kennedy) Zemrak and her husband, Brian, of Winslow; his son, Larry Kennedy and his wife Jane (Etchie) Kennedy of Florida; his son, Christopher Kennedy and his wife Rebecca (Sawyer) Kennedy of Cumberland; his grandchildren Lenny Kennedy, Lance Kennedy, Mindy Zemrak, Katrina Zemrak and her husband, Alexander Mattingly, Zachary Kennedy, Benjamin Kennedy, and Matthew Kennedy; and his three great granddaughters Kiara Kennedy, Ava Kennedy, and Lilianna Kennedy; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Barbara Spear and Peggy Grondin for their love and support. They also would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Pen Bay Medical Center and the Sussman House in Rockport, a hospice facility, for the excellent care he was given.
The funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 at 11 am at St. John’s Church in Winslow.
