Paul Leo Tringoson, of Hollis, NH, passed away on 12/16/2019, at the Merrimack Hospice House, after a period of declining health. He was born on September 18, 1930, the only child of Charles and Eva (Messier) Tringoson of Hollis.
Mr. Tringoson was a well-respected teacher of Medieval History at Nashua High School and he chaperoned many class trips abroad. He also traveled extensively in his personal life and always brought back many wonderful memories and stories to his students, family and friends in New England. He received his undergraduate degree from St. Anselm College and his Master’s Degree from Harvard University.
Over the years, he spent many great times at his aunts’ home in Nashua for birthday celebrations and Christmas. He was always so interested in hearing stories from everyone, that his family truly believes he remembered every single detail of those stories.
Following his retirement, Paul was known to go antiquing because he recognized the importance of history. He also loved classical music, the arts, museums and fine dining. In fact, Café Budapest in Boston’s Back Bay was one of his favorites.
Paul is survived by his cousins, Raymond Messier of South Yarmouth, MA, Virginia Phelan of Kingston, MA, Dick Snow of Savannah, GA, Ned Snow of Sante Fe, NM, Martha Thebodeau of Nashua, Elaine Smoot of El Cajon, CA, Suzanne Poirier of Taos, NM, Joe Poirier of St. Louis, MO, Mary Gilroy of San Cristobal, NM, Phil Poirier of San Cristobal, NM, Alfred Poirier of PA, Alice Keltner of Questa, NM, Linda Crowell Asselin of Milford, NH, Martha Crowell Nadeau of Nashua, Jonathan Crowell of Nashua, and Michael Poirier of Richmond, CA. He is also survived by many good friends.
There are no visiting hours or funeral service. Donations may be made to the Peabody Essex Museum, a favorite of Paul’s, or to a charity of one’s choice. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
