Lawrence, MA - Alfred George Maroun, of Lawrence, passed peacefully on March 14, 2020.
Alfred was born in Lawrence on March 6, 1932 to the late Charles and Josephine (Nader) Maroun.
Survived by his wife Romona, his devoted and loving three children Diane, Allison and Alfred, five grandchildren, many cousins, nieces and nephews. Alfred was a dear and devoted brother to Ernest Maroun, Janet Maroun, Mary Nasser, Claire Nasser, George Maroun, Rita Mello and Helen Silva.
Everybody who knew Alfred loved him, and it was well known that he would do anything he could for anyone.
Alfred graduated from Lawrence High School in 1949, and after attending Merrimack College in North Andover, Alfred joined his father Charles and his Uncle Said in the family business, Maroun Brothers Inc. of Lawrence. Alfred helped grow the family business into a multi-million dollar enterprise along with his sister Mary Nasser and her husband and Alfred's brother-in-law Fred Nasser. Over the years, Alfred welcomed many cousins and individuals from Lebanon and was always willing to give them employment at Maroun Brothers to give them a start in the community.
Over time the business evolved into a thriving and successful bakery ingredient supply company, one which Alfred continued to have the pleasure to help manage until his last remaining days.
Alfred was very proud to be part of the Lebanese community within the Merrimack Valley, and greatly enjoyed being a congregant of St. Anthony Maronite Church that his father, Charles helped establish and build.
Alfred will be fondly remembered as a warm, generous, big-hearted and larger-than-life soul who will be dearly missed by the many friends and family who knew and loved him.
There will be a private burial service at St. Anthony Cemetery in Methuen attended by immediate family only, where Alfred will be interred beside his parents. A public memorial mass will be held at a later date and announced beforehand. At Alfred's request there will not be a wake or calling hours.
