A bright light has gone out in his families lives and they are heartbroken. Especially his Dad who traveled many miles and fought laboriously to save his son's life. In the end the addiction prevailed as it does way too often. Their baby tried so hard but lost his battle. It is with hope that others can learn from this tragedy.
Born in Niskayuna, July 16, 1996, son of Frank J. and Colleen Hanehan Maheux of Stillwater, he was a 2014 graduate of Stillwater Central School.
Tristan was a store manager for Pet Smart of Wilton for some time. Years ago, he worked with his Uncle Mike's balloon and novelty sales at parades and festivals.
Tristan enjoyed computer gaming, watching movies and loved animals of all kinds. He was very helpful tending to his maternal grandparents during their medical difficulties. His humor and laughter was infectious and will remain forever in the heart's of those who loved him. That love will comfort us forever.
Survivors in addition to his parents include his brother Joseph (Devin Ormin) Maheux of Stillwater, paternal grandparents Camil and Lyne Maheux of Malta, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
