Alan E. Buttrick, age 78, a resident of Nashua and former longtime resident of Chelmsford, passed away at Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH on Monday, September 5, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Barbara (Hermance) Buttrick with whom he enjoyed almost 50 years of marriage. He was born in Arlington on January 8, 1944 and raised in Lexington, MA. He was the son of the late Gorham and Grace (Dahlrymple) Buttrick and brother of the late Arthur Buttrick of Augusta, Maine. Alan was a student of the Lexington school system from which he graduated in 1962. He worked in automotive service and repair for 53 years and was the owner of Buttrick's Automotive Center in Chelmsford in the 80s and retired at age 71 from the Town of Merrimack Public Works garage. In his off time, he enjoyed hunting, skiing, hiking and motorcycling. He was a member of Victory Motorcycle Club and a longtime board member of NH Motorcyclists' Rights Organization. In addition to his loving wife, Alan is survived by his daughters, Donna Costa and her significant other Wayne Carolan, and Cynthia McKenzie and her husband Richard. He was the proud grandfather of Brooke Costa, Jacob Myers, and Ricky and Michael McKenzie. In keeping with Alan's wishes, no wake or services are planned. Interment will be held privately.
