May 05, 1934 - December 25, 2018

St. Agatha - Jean Maurice "Moe" Tardif, 84, of St. Agatha, passed on Christmas Day to be with his beloved wife, Eunice. He was born and raised in St. Agatha, the son of Albert and Marie Anne (Raymond) Tardif.
He later married Eunice (Doucette) and moved to Connecticut to work and raise his family. Moe worked many jobs and eventually owned his own service station - Moe's A-1 Gas Station in South Windsor, Connecticut. He later relocated to St Agatha where he and his wife built their own home. He worked at Fraser Paper Mill for 22 years as a Millwright prior to his retirement. They both enjoyed camping at Birch Haven at Eagle Lake with family and friends. They enjoyed many travels through the years, including bus trips with friends. He was an avid reader, wood worker and enjoyed playing cards. Family was very important to him and he loved spending time with them.
Moe was a well-respected and lovable soul in the community - a big man with an even bigger heart. He was a loving husband to his beloved wife, Eunice, for 62 years before her passing. He was an incredible father and grandfather who loved his children and grandchildren dearly and deeply. He loved kids and animals with a kind, loving soul. He was a member in good standing with the Knights of Columbus for many years.

Big Moe brought his own brand of warmth and color into this world, as did his beloved Eunice. Both had a way of making you feel comfortable, as their personalities were genuine. They both are remembered warmly, and with deep fondness, as well as with a smile on my face, and on my heart. I mention them both here, as to me, they truly exemplified two that were made one. Moe was a super cool cat, and my deepest sympathies are extended to you at this time.

My condolences goes out to your family. Times such as these are tough. Especially when you lose, not just one but two love ones. May you receive strength and encouragement from the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” in your time of need. He also promise that one day we’ll be able to see our love ones again by means of a “resurrection”.
