Philip Ayotte Sr. Obituary
Mr. Philip J. Ayotte, Sr., of Waltham, died on Monday May 12, 2014 in Meadow Green Nursing Home in Waltham on his 86th birthday. Phil was born in Lowell on May 12, 1928, a son of the late Donat and Regina (Cloutier) Ayotte. He attended both Lowell High School and St. Marys High School. Shortly after his graduation he enlisted in the United States Navy where he served during World War II. After being honorably discharged he earned his bachelor of science degree from Carthage College in Illinois and would later earn his masters degree in business management from Northeastern University in Boston. Phil worked hard to provide for his family and spent the majority of his career working as a facilities engineer at M/A-Com Corporation in Burlington. He loved to spend time outdoors and fishing and hunting were two of his passions. Time spent with his family was most important and trips north to either Maine or New Brunswick were treasured. He was the beloved husband of the late Elizabeth M. 'Betty' (Moffitt) Ayotte and is survived by his children, William J. Ayotte and his wife, Heidi, of Waltham, Philip J. P.J. Ayotte, Jr. and his wife, Mary, of Framingham and Kevin Ayotte of Newbury; his grandchildren, Dolan, Natalie, Shane, Kimberly and Kenneth Ayotte; his sister, Jeanne Stack of Burlington and his daughter in law Denise Ayotte of Hopkinton, and his nephew and niece James and Carol Stack. He was also the father of the late Stephen M. Ayotte and father-in-law of the late Theresa Ayotte.
