Dennis E. Lamoureux, 79, of Jaffrey, NH, passed away on November 28, 2021, while surrounded by his family at the Monadnock Community Hospital in Peterborough, NH after a brief period of failing health.
He was born in Keene, NH, on November 25, 1942, son of the late Alfred and Aurore (Vigneau) Lamoureux. After graduating from Keene High School, Dennis began working at Honeywell Inc. located in Peterborough. This is where he met his wife, Nancy.
Dennis and Nancy (Foote) married on October 3, 1970, in Francestown, NH. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather to his family. Dennis soon began working for W.W. Cross Co, Inc. ‘The Tack Shop’ in Jaffrey as a machine operator and he had been employed with them for over 32 years, only leaving when the business closed. He then worked briefly with American Cater in Rindge before retiring.
Dennis truly enjoyed photography and was often found behind the camera lens. He spent his early years capturing wedding moments for couples in the Monadnock region. He also found great pleasure in traveling with Nancy on their biannual bus tours to Atlantic City where they spent their time enjoying walks on the boardwalk and catching nightly shows. In his retirement years he enjoyed creating, planting, and maintaining their various flower gardens.
Dennis was pre-deceased by his parents, Alfred and Aurore and his brother, Paul Lamoureux.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Nancy (Foote) Lamoureux, his children; Lisa (Lamoureux) Lortie of Keene, NH and Todd Lamoureux of Coronado, CA, his grandchildren; Calvin and Katelyn Lortie. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.
