Albert Joseph French, Jr., 86, of North Hampton, died Sunday, March 24, 2013, at the Mark Wentworth Home in Portsmouth surrounded by family and friends.

French was born Jan. 30, 1927, in Boston, the son of the late Albert Joseph and Mildred (O'Brien) French.

French attended the Webster School and Central High School, Manchester, where he graduated as valedictorian. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1947. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having been trained as a Japanese interpreter.

French was employed at Liberty Mutual Insurance Company for 43 years. He accepted his first position with Liberty prior to graduating from UNH and retired from the company in 1989, as assistant vice president and manager of administration and personnel services. In retirement, Liberty Mutual sponsored French as a loaned executive to United Way until he was 80 years old.

French was a creative, innovative thinker and believed strongly in the lifelong power of learning. In his senior years, French had been an instructor of Principles of Management at Hesser College and the College for Lifelong Learning of the University of New Hampshire.

He spent countless hours nurturing his talent and passion for painting. He was a member of the Seacoast Artist Association. He loved the creative process and the positive impact his work had on others. In January of this year, he was able to attend the opening reception of what would be his final art show at RiverWoods in Exeter. It was a most dignified and beautiful crescendo moment for Mr. French. It was truly the show of his life.

Mr. French was predeceased by Ruth Seymour French, his loving wife of 27 years, and mother of his children, who passed in 1975, and Inez Lyons French, his loving wife of 36 years, who passed in 2012.

Burial at Pine Ridge Cemetery in Chelmsford, Mass.
