Maurice was a hard working man and spent his life working from dawn to dusk as a farmer and carpenter. He loved life on the farm and in his later years of life bought a cabin out in the woods and enjoyed spending time there. He was a man of faith, devout Catholic and active member of St. George Parish in New Baden.

Maurice enjoyed deer hunting, fishing with his grandchildren, playing cards, riding his bike, reading the newspaper, and telling stories, but most of all spending time with his family.
