    “Chow” Nadeau
    Last week this community lost one of its citizens who will probably live in the minds of the community a long time. Paul Edward Nadeau or best known as “Chow” grew up in this community an ideal athlete. He can be remembered as being on the team as you like to see boys or men. He may or may not have been an outstanding player, but he was there, needed by his fellow men, and liked. He just did his job in a sportsman-like manner that led the team to the top.

    Chow didn’t grow out of sports as some do. He was in there pitching until his dying day. If he was’nt coaching the team, he was always on the sidelines boosting for his team to win. Chow’s latest efforts were toward the town’s baseball teams that he helped promote, coach, umpire or just serve anywhere he could.

    Probably to many citizens, Chow was a quiet mannered fellow. Many had never talked directly to him, but most everyone knew him. Few have heard him raise his voice in anger.

    Yes, the community will miss Chow but when the spring baseball season opens and the grandstand is filled, if they will look up over the dust of the diamond toward the sky, he’ll be there watching in his quiet manner and boosting the little fellows toward victory.
