Claude attended the Easton School System graduating in 1950. He was a 12 year member of the Army National Guard, attaining the rank of Sgt. He married the love of his life Marilyn (Osgood) Lamoreau in 1951. Together, they farmed potatoes in Easton for nearly 40 years. In their last 10 years of farming they were awarded the McCain's Champion Grower Award for their quality crops. Yet, Claude, always humbly, said, "I'm just a simple farmer". Claude and Mary also loved antiques and operated the Country Meadow Antique Shop for 20 years. After retiring they moved to Pine St. in Presque Isle, where they completely renovated their retirement home. One of the mutual joys they shared was renovating and decorating homes. They personally built a special get-away log cabin in the backyard, and even purchased the home next door to bring it back to its original glory. Claude and Mary were inseparable and enjoyed many trips to the coast of Maine, one special vacation was taking the train from coast to coast across Canada, another trip was to Europe sponsored by McCain's honoring them for being good partners in potato production.
Claude is survived by brother, Ray Lamoreau and wife Georgene, Sister-in-law Esther Allen and husband William, all of Presque Isle, Sister-in-law Barbara Farrington of Hampden and Sister-in-law Jean Lamoreau of Easton.

He was predeceased by Herman and Florence, his parents, his wife of 63 years, Marilyn, sister Dolly Reed and brother Merle Lamoreau.

Sad news except for the fact that Claude and Marilyn are now together
once again. They were two wonderful people who Nancy and I always enjoyed visiting with on our annual visits back to Presque Isle. They will be deeply missed by family and friends.
