Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 90


Arthur H. Favreau, 90, of Manchester NH, passed away at St. Teresa Healthcare Center on December 28, 2019 after a brief period of failing health. Born on January 14, 1929 to Oscar & Victoria (Proulx) Favreau, Arthur was a lifelong resident of Manchester who would go on to marry his best friend and loving wife of 69 years, Cecile (Allard) Favreau.

Adept with his hands, Arthur worked as a machine operator at the International Paper company for 35 years, and was also proud of his service in the US National Guard. Arthur was always keeping busy, whether he was woodworking, taking care of his home, or fixing various things, he always held cleanliness, order and hard work in high regard. Arthur was also a devout Catholic and parishioner of St. Anthony Church for over 70 years. Above all, Arthur loved his family immensely, and was always devoted to his wife and family. He will be dearly missed at all of the family gatherings to come.

Arthur is survived by his wife Cecile (Allard) Favreau; sister Theresa Doyon; sister in law Theresa Boisvert; 5 brothers-in-law Roland, Gerard, Maurice, Ralph and Roger Allard and 6 God-children. Arthur's family would like to thank the wonderful staff at St. Teresa's Healthcare for the care and compassion given to Arthur.
