Leo Paul Moulin, 94, of Biddeford, died peacefully September 2, 2017, surrounded by loved ones, at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.
Paul was born March 5, 1923 in Biddeford to Alfred and Odina (St. Louis) Moulin. He was educated locally, graduating from St. Louis High School in the Class of 1942. He enlisted in the Navy and served as a baker aboard the USS Altair in the Pacific.
On July 1, 1950, he married Alberta (Bertha) Marie Caouette in St. Joseph’s Church in Biddeford.
Paul worked at the Saco-Lowell shops from the time of his Naval discharge until he retired in 1986. After retirement, he was a valued member of the Hope Memorial Chapel part time staff.
Family was important to Paul. He opened his heart to the in-laws, welcoming them as his own. His grandchildren meant everything to him. He was oftentimes seen strolling the streets of Biddeford, pushing Marissa in her stroller and enjoyed taking the granddaughters on shopping trips to the Mall. He was frequently seen at the grandchildren’s performances, from dance recitals to plays, proud to be a part of their lives. His daughter-in-law Elizabeth recalls many a Sunday afternoon playing cards at his home, more often than not, losing at double pinochle to Paul.
Paul was an avid stamp collector. He and his wife Bertha were members of the Stamp club of Sanford, Maine. He also enjoyed collecting coins, playing all kinds of card games, especially cribbage with family members and doing jigsaw puzzles.

Alberta (Bertha) Moulin, his wife of 44 years
