Obituary of Gordon C. Mauer
Gordon C. Mauer “Gordie”, 75 of Putnam, passed away Monday, July 18, 2022 at his home with his family by his side. He was the beloved husband of Jeanine (Beausoleil) Mauer. Son of the late Glen and Betty (Furman) Mauer, he was born in Albany, NY on March 12, 1947.
He graduated from Proctor Academy in NH and received a bachelor’s degree from William Penn College in Iowa. He moved back to Putnam in 1972 to become a salesman at his family business, Windham Container, with his parents and brother Skip. Gordon purchased the business in 1990 and was an active owner until his untimely passing. The company and his loyal employees were his life. He was an official with the (ECFO) Eastern Connecticut Football Officials for 45 years, Eastern CT Softball Umpires for 20 years, officiating softball and volleyball locally with the Putnam Rec Department. Gordie enjoyed spending time with his family and his yearly family vacations during July 4th shutdown. He also enjoyed making you laugh even if it was at your own expense.
