“I don’t know if I did it right or not but I enjoyed it,” Chauvin said. “It was something different.”
“It didn’t seem real that I was doing it,” Chauvin said.
He moved to the United States from Woburn, a Province of Quebec, when he was six years old. The family eventually moved to the Granite State. As an adult he worked at Anchor Electric in Manchester’s Millyard until he retired. He raised four children and has eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
“I try to do everything that I can and enjoy it like I did before,” Chauvin said.
