Waltham – Mr. George F. Morin, of Waltham, died peacefully in his home on Sunday December 20, 2020. He was 93 years old.

George was born in Berlin, New Hampshire on October 4, 1927, the son of the late Honore and Yvonne (Nadeau) Morin. He attended Notre Dame High School but left before his graduation to serve with the U.S. Navy. Upon his return to Berlin he graduated from high school and shortly thereafter moved to Waltham. While in Waltham he belonged to Les Debonnaires Club where he met a young Marie Wilma Burns. After a few years of dating the pair married in St. Joseph's Church on November 10, 1951. They settled in Waltham where they would raise their four children. George was a kind and intelligent man and made friends easily wherever he went. Some of the family's happiest memories were their trips to Onset Beach on the Cape and back to New Hampshire to visit with family. George found great solace and peace in attending Mass and had been a Eucharistic Minister and member of the prayer group at The Espousal Center in Waltham.

Before his retirement he had worked for many years as an engineer at Itek Corporation in Lexington. He loved all things photography and while at Itek he was utilized as a photo analyst in various roles.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Marie Wilma (Burns) Morin; his children, Michael F. Morin (Cathleen) of Allentown, NH, James J. Morin (Karin) of Chandler, AZ, Faith M. Morin of Waltham and Paula Y. Morin of Waltham; his grandchildren, Candace Morin, Kevin Morin, Kaitlyn Morin, Stephanie Morin, Jennifer Somsen (Blake), Jonathan Morin, Justina Morin and Ashley Gunter; his great-grandchildren, Hailey Proia, Ryan Gagliano and Raegan Gagliano and also leaves many nieces, nephews and their families.

He was the brother of the late Mark, Robert, Dennis and Paul Morin and Marguerite Repucci.

Family and friends will honor and remember George's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Monday, December 28th from 4 to 7 p.m. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated in Sacred Heart Church, 311 River Street, Waltham on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Waltham.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the funeral home should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
