Obituary for Paul Leo Tringoson

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.

I worked with Paul in the Nashua High Social Studies Department in the mid to late 1980s. I was a first year teacher and he took me under his wing. He was a true mentor and taught me many things that I used throughout my career. He was an excellent field trip organizer and I went with him and learned the ropes in Boston many times. As his students have attested, his trips were very memorable. He was a great teacher and a great friend. Rest in Peace Paul, I'll miss you.

My condolences to all who will miss my memorable World History teacher at Nashua High in the early 1980’s. I have fond memories of ink-stained fingers after reading all those New York Times newspapers! It was an honor to become reacquainted with Mr. Tringoson over the last few years. He will be missed...and remembered.

Mr. Tringoson was my favorite teacher. I had the good fortune to be in 2 of his World History classes. What he taught us about art and culture has stayed with me until today. He was an excellent teacher, a handsome man and a great dresser! He took us to the MFA and the Isabella Gardner museum and instilled in me a love of museums that I have passed on to my children. I will never forget him. Thank you Mr. Tringoson.

Mr. T was one of the few teachers that helped form me into the teacher I am today. I will never forget the trip to Boston where we saw Yul Brenner perform and then we went out to eat at a French Restaurant where I had my first taste of escargot and squab. He made sure the bus driver drove through the combat zone where we all could become educated in why it existed and when it was formed. He never missed a chance to educate us about anything historical and he showed us that learning could be fun, something I try to take into my own classes each and every day. Mr. T, thank-you for instilling so much culture into my life.
