I was so sorry to hear about your loss. He was a good friend of dad’s. A fishing buddy! I will remember you in my rosary today. God bless.

Donna, LuAnn, Melissa, Larry, and Linda - I am so sorry for your loss and share in this very sad time. He was a wonderful godfather to me and a great role model in my life. I have so many cherished, happy memories of time spent with him on the farm and with all of you. His devotion to his family, hard work ethic, solid midwestern values, and big bear hugs are what I'll remember most about him. Sending my love and prayers to you all. Kathy Andre

Dear Donna, LuAnn, Melissa, Larry, Linda, and all your extended families. I am so sorry for the loss of Maurice. He was always such a nice guy whenever I saw him....usually with Linda and we were always up to something. Enjoyed visiting with both your parents. Great people!

The picture I submitted showing Maurice in front of green wallpaper was from January, 1961. My parents were preparing to drive to the inauguration of President Kennedy. They had bought a Kodak movie camera and Maurice was captured on the first roll of film as they tried out the camera before leaving (Maurice did the chores while they were gone). Our mom used that same movie camera to capture Maurice and Donna on their wedding day. I have shared a moment from that film showing them emerging from the church. Seconds after this image they were showered with a lot of rice! Maurice was always such a nice guy whenever we crossed paths. Rest in peace, Maurice.
Was always great to see Maurice whenever he would come to the hospital in Emmetsburg and I got to register him. Very friendly guy. Know he will be missed by many..
Donna, LuAnn, Melissa, Larry and Linda. Sue and I are very sorry for your loss, and the loss of a great man. He was was my classmate from 1st thru 12th grade, and yes he lived east of Whittemore but his parents moved west of Whittemore in 52 or 53 and he was my buddy just two miles west on HWY 18. We remained very close to Moe and Donna, and they were Godparents to our daughter Kathy. We will miss Moe greatly for all our visits to each other, our joint travels, and most of all he was my "Whittemore Connection", and now he is gone.
I have know Maurice for many many years. He was one of my husbands best friends. After Donnie died when I would come to Algona I always stopped to see Maurice & Donna first. I was always welcome no matter what time of day. Rest In Peace Maurice.
Donna and family,
Sincere sympathy to all of you. Loved visiting with Maurice.
Donna, LuAnn, Melissa, Larry and Linda and families. So sorry to hear about Maurice's passing. I have a lot of fond memories of our families spending time together when I was a kid. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Donna, LuAnn, Melissa, Larry, and Linda - I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of spending summers on the farm with your family when I was young. Maurice was like a second father to my sister, Kathy, and I. He was always so warm and friendly. He will be missed by our whole family!! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

So very sad to hear about Maurice's death. He was such a wonderful man and gave the best hugs! I enjoyed our visits so much when he came into the hardware store and the short visits before church. He was such an amazing man and will be missed by so many. I am so sad that we haven't been able to see him for so long but we know that he will always be in our hearts. Hugs to all of you!!
Donna, LuAnn, Melissia, Larry, Linda and families. So sad to hear of Maurice's death. We've had so many good memories in the last 40+ years. The family movie nights, the eating out/playing cards, vacations, did I mention eating out/visiting "Aunt Rose" and playing cards, and now in the last few months, the visiting on the phone. So many good laughs we'd share. We know he's in a much better place, but maybe won't win as many card games . We're sure going to miss him. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
So sorry for your loss. I loved Maurice’s smile and laugh. He had such a warm personality and so easy to visit with him. Sending prayers and hugs.
