Pierre Jacques Maitre, 79, husband of Monique Julienne Lagae Maitre, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at NCH Healthcare in Garden City, South Carolina.
A funeral mass will be held on Monday, July 23, 2018 at 11AM at Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
Born in Algeria on December 11, 1938, he was a son of the late Leon Maitre and Anne Marie Sy Maitre. Mr. Maitre was a devoted member of Precious Blood of Christ where he volunteered at Father Pat’s Kitchen and participated in the Carmelite Prayer Group. He was a veteran of the French Army and a retired software consultant. His greatest joy outside of church was spending time with his beloved family. He was most fulfilled taking care of his wife, children and grandchildren. Every day, he and his wife Monique walked on the beach at sunset; it was their little piece of “heaven on earth”. Mr. Maitre was an amazing husband, father, and grandfather who dedicated his life to serving others and giving endlessly of himself to his family. He will be dearly missed.
