Maurice “Mutt” Allain of Third Avenue passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, April 6, 2018 followed a brief illness. He was 72 years old.
Born in Berlin, on November 29, 1945 he was the son of Henry and Julia (Poirier) Allain.

He was employed by Crown Vantage for 32 years, retiring in 2000.
On June 17, 1967 he married Jeanne Morin and together they raised three children. In his younger years he participated in many weight lifting competitions. He could always be found on the mound of a softball field or on a green at the golf course. He and Jeanne also enjoyed many years traveling on their motorcycle.
