Heart attack claimed life of Atkinson, NH postmaster serving in Qatar
Poirier had been on administrative leave from the post office while serving with the New Hampshire National Guard’s 157th Operations Support Squadron out of Pease.
“I had not had the opportunity to meet Mr. Poirier during his short tenure here in Atkinson, and knew him only through our mail carriers and residents,” said Snicer. “To a person, he was well-respected, knowledgeable and always wiling to take time to be of assistance.”Poirier’s body will be flown to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, and then he will be honorably transferred to New Hampshire, where services will be held at a later date, according to McCarthy.
