Gregory Mare

December 23, 1953 — November 21, 2021

Gregory Mare, age 67, of Derry, New Hampshire, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on November 21, 2021. Greg was born in Newport, RI to the late Manuel R and Josephine Marie (Fichera) Mare. Greg was a graduate of Jesus Savior School in Newport, RI, Middletown High School in Middletown, RI and attended Roger Williams College in RI prior to his electrician career in RI. In his youth Greg played baseball and enjoyed recreational boating on Aquidneck Island. He enjoyed spending summers with family on New Hampshire lakes and Big Island Pond where his passion for boating began. Greg later moved to New Hampshire and was a self- employed electrician until his sudden passing.

Greg was recognized throughout the lake community as a very kind and generous person who used his mechanical and electrical skills to help friends and neighbors with various projects. He was known for presenting annual Fourth of July fireworks displays on the lake that were enjoyed by many, including Greg's mother Marie, neighbors' families and MA friends. He loved spending time on the lake with friends and was an avid car historian throughout his life. He enjoyed home projects, football and other winter sports. Greg was deeply loved by his family and friends and will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Gregory is survived by his sister Regina of Middletown, RI and his nieces and nephews Alison, Andrew, and Daniel Griffith and cousins in RI and MA.
