Arthur B. Trainque

Arthur “Art” B. Trainque, 84, of Hubbardston, died peacefully Friday, February 18, 2022, in Heywood Hospital, Gardner.

Born in Fitchburg on April 18, 1937, he was the son of the late Victor G. and Marguerite (Dauphinias) Trainque. He graduated from St. Bernard’s High School with the Class of 1954 and home studied courses on Mechanical Engineering. Art was a United States Army Veteran serving from 1960 to 1962, where he received the Good Conduct Medal. Art was a Self-Employed Contractor for over 37-years prior to his retirement in 1997 but continued doing side jobs until he was 80 years old. He was previously employed by Seaman Paper Company in Otter River as a Purchasing Agent in the Wood Working Division from 1980 till 1987.

Art was member of the VFW Post 7389 and the American Legion, both of Westminster. He served as Scout Master for Boy Scouts of America Troop 33 of Westminster from 1969 to 1974 and previously served as Treasurer of the Westminster Country Club Men’s Association. Art enjoyed doing many things in his free time, including woodworking—which included redoing both the inside and outside of his house, as well as golfing. He even combined these two enjoyments and made custom golf clubs. Art also greatly enjoyed sailing. At heart, he was a family man and always treasured the time he and his family spent together.

Art is survived by his wife of 42-years, Gaylynn Powers of Hubbardston; two sons, Gerald D. Trainque and his wife Susan of Euless, TX, and Victor G. Trainque of Charlotte, NC; three daughters, Jessica M. Miller and her husband Michael of New Bedford, Kathryn C. Robertson and her husband Curt of Washington and Nichole C. McReynolds and her husband Danny of Bremerton, WA; a step-daughter, Cheryl A. DeGrace of Omaha, NE; six grandchildren, Ryan, Craig, Samantha, Eden Jade, Avery, and Chaslyn; four step-grandchildren, Melissa, Amanda, Theresa, and Lillian; several great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; a sister, Elianne J. Scapparoni of Westminster; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was predeceased by his four brothers, Andre, Victor, Lionel, and Wilfred Trainque.

My sympathies to you and your family. I married his cousin and was fortunate enough to meet Arthur as a Boy Scout in 1969. We attended the Boy Scout National Jamboree together when I was 15 years old. He was kind and funny. Know that he made a difference in my life. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Dan, Doreen , and Peter Elliott.
