Portsmouth, NH — Walter F. Livermore, 92, died peacefully on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, at his home.
He was born on April 13, 1921, in Brookline Mass., to Walter Frazer Livermore and Doris Loring.
Walter was raised in Swampscott, Mass., and graduated from Swampscott High School. He was a veteran of World War II, serving in the U.S. Army 543rd Engineer Boat and Shore Regiment. He was honorably discharged on November 16, 1945.
On September 3, 1948, he married Alison Teel at St. Andrew’s Church in Marblehead Mass. They were married for 65 years.
Walter resided much of his life on the North Shore of Boston. In 1979, he and his family relocated to New Hampshire, living the majority of that time on the Ossipee River in Freedom, where they enjoyed gardening, observing wildlife, and the simple pleasures of rural life on a quiet river. Walter was an avid reader and was happiest puttering around the house, visiting with neighbors, and spending time with his family. He was known for his generosity, always pitching in on projects where his carpentry skills could be helpful.
Walter is survived by his wife, Alison, of Portsmouth; his children, Andrea Livermore of Marlboro, Vt., Stephen Livermore of Salem, and Dana Livermore of Dover, N.H.; grandchildren, Ryan, Ross, Sidney, and Lane Livermore and Ian Reynolds; and great-grandchildren, Owen Livermore and Cicely Madaglia.
ARRANGEMENTS: A memorial celebration of Walter’s life will take place on October 12, at 1:30 p.m., at Clipper Harbor of Portsmouth, 188 Jones Avenue, Portsmouth. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to your local hospice organization.
