Maurice Fredrick Armell, 90, of Waltham


WALTHAM — Maurice F. Armell, 90, passed away Friday, April 12, 2024 at his daughter’s home in Waltham, Vt.

He was born Aug. 1, 1933, in Ferrisburgh, the son of Archie and Beatrice Mears Armell. Maurice, known to friends and family as Morris, or simply Moe, was an antique tractor enthusiast, and a life-long woodworker. His first love was always everything farming, but his life’s career was as a carpenter. He loved to travel and took many memorable trips all over the U.S. and once to Europe with his kids.

Maurice was married to Arlene Armell in 1953 and together they raised seven children.

Maurice was predeceased by his wife in 2005. He is survived by his children: four sons, Dennis Armell (Nancy) of North Ferrisburgh, Gary Armell (Cindy) of Shoreham, Chris Armell (Kim) of Pittsford and Scott Armell (Tina) of Milton; and three daughters, Bonnie Ray of Concord, N.C., Rhonda Martell of New Haven and Darcy Tarte (Zeke) of Waltham. The joy in his life was always his grandchildren, of which he had sixteen. He also leaves two brothers, Clyde (Chrystal) Armell and Roy Armell. He was predeceased by seven siblings.

There will be no services; interment will be at a later date.

Maurice had recently begun attending Elderly Services in Middlebury. What an absolute treasure in our community! If you wish to make a contribution, please consider this worthy organization.
