Alfred "Al" Morin
Alfred Philippe Morin, 57, passed away peacefully, with family at his side, on March 17, 2018, at MaineGeneral Medical Center after a courageous battle with an extended illness. Alfred was born on June 29, 1960, the eldest child to the late Aimé J. Morin and Gloria D. (Charest) Morin. He grew up in Augusta and was a 1978 graduate of Cony High School. After graduation, he worked for Statler Tissue Co. as a shipping attendant until the company closed. He then worked for Dirigo Housing as a maintenance manager until he no longer could work due to illness.
Alfred was always a family man first and foremost and was very protective of his mother and daughter, Amy. His fiancé, Linda, was the love of his life and stood by him lovingly through his illness. He had a strong bond with his sister, Cecile, one that stemmed from losing their two siblings at a young age. He had a great sense of humor and was loved by everyone he met. He gave of himself unconditionally and was someone you could always count on for anything and he did it all with a smile. In addition to his family, Al had a great affinity for muscle cars and fixing anything - he was a meticulous carpenter. He enjoyed volunteering at the Waterville Area Habitat For Humanity/Restore where he performed brush of kindness and was awarded a Golden Hammer Award from the Habitat For Humanity organization.
Alfred was very strong and brave in his life-long battle with illness. He did not complain or bring unwanted attention to himself. He will be forever cherished and dearly missed.
Al was a member of the Calumet Club in Augusta since 2004.
He was predeceased by his father, Aimé J. Morin (1976); his brother, Maurice Morin (1988); his younger sister, Annette Dunton (1995), and his best friend and uncle, Elwood Tracy (2011). He is lovingly survived by his fiancé, Linda Santerre of Augusta; his mother, Gloria D. Morin of Augusta; his daughter, Amy Morin and granddaughter Haley of Augusta; his sister, Cecile Thompson and her husband, Scott of Cumberland; his nephew Nick and niece Alysha, and his beloved dogs and companions, Oliver and Walter. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. To celebrate Alfred and the way he lived his life, the family asks you to perform a random act of kindness in his honor.
