It is with a heavy heart that we announce that our spark of light and mischievous energy has gone out. On the morning of November 3, 2019, after a long struggle with Parkinson's disease, Brian Lamontagne passed peacefully.
He was predeceased by his father Ted Lamontagne and mother Elisa (Pelland) Lamontagne.
His memory will be cherished by his wife Heather (nee Schuster), daughter Michelline (Claude), son Edouard (Amanda) and brother Ron (Diane). His cousins, in-laws, nieces and nephews will miss his wonderfully weird sense of humour.
Brian's generosity of spirit and muscle endeared him to many.
The family would like to thank the 3rd floor staff at Grace Hospital for taking care of Brian during his last days. To the staff at Actionmarguerite St-Vital for two years of devoted care, MERCI.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, November 8, 2019, at the Parish of Saints-Martyrs-Canadiens, 289 Dussault Ave., Winnipeg, MB. Cremation has taken place and a private family interment will be held at a later date.

"No more lawns to cut, windows to
clean or snow to shovel"

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • To the Lamontgne family, I'm sorry to read of your loss. Mr. Lamontagne was like the big kid on the block. He always encouraged the neighborhood kids to play in the puddles after a good downpour and instigated many water fights! The back yard ice slide and tree house that required arm power to get into will always bring a smile to my face. Many of my childhood memories were happy ones because you lived next door. We were blessed to have known you growing up. - Posted by: Denise (nĂ©e Paul) Schimnowski (Our next door neighbor when I was growing up) on: Dec 03, 2019

  • Heather and family, so sorry to hear of your precious husband and father's passing. I received a call from Marie and immediately felt your loss. I know you advised me of his illness and that he was going into long term care but that does not lessen the pain and sorrow you feel at this time. Even though I have been gone from Manitoba for many years I still feel Marie and you are great friends. Nothing more can be said to ease your burden; only his memory with you will remain forever in your hearts. Call me or message me anytime Heather - maybe it will help in some small way. Love and Prayers Melvina and Dennis - Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. - Posted by: Melvina and Dennis Myer (Childhood friend and husband) on: Nov 17, 2019

  • Dear Heather and family, We are saddened for you loss of precious Brian. We met you both when Harm was the Superintendent at 141 Wellington Crescent. We keep you in our thought and prayers as you grieve Brian's loss and mourn his absence in your lives. May you always treasure the memories that you have made and shared with Brian 💞. - Posted by: Claudette Moquin & Harm Bouwman (Acquaintances) on: Nov 12, 2019

  • Roger and I (CĂ©cile) went across the street to play with Brian when we first moved across the street from the Lamontagnes on "la rue Traverse." I was nearly 5 years old and Roger was 4 years old. We only spoke French and Brian only spoke English. So Roger said, "no use playing with him, he understands NOTHING!" We played games outside throughout our young ages, no matter what season. "Hide and seek," Tresure Hunts with maps written in the dirt with a stick, and tag, etc. I don't remember any of us ever fighting or bullying or swearing. Our parents called us in only when it was time for bed as we were encouraged to stay outside even on dark and wintry days. We had loads of fun! - Posted by: Ronald (Ronnie) Lamontagne et Heather (Friends since the Roger, EdmĂ©e and I (CĂ©cile) moved across the street from Brian's home in 1944) on: Nov 06, 2019

  • Heather, Micheline,and Edward and Ron and families. The beautiful spark of life and light that has been trapped inside has now been released to a lovely light in heaven. He will be joined by missed relatives waiting to hug him. Let that thought be a comfort to you. Beverley Betttens and family. - Posted by: Beverley Bettens (Friend) on: Nov 06, 2019

  • Our family has many wonderful memories of a fun guy😊. No more Xs on lawn to promote cutting😊😊. I remember and our three sons do too when Brian would rake a huge pile of leaves only to have our boys invited to spread them all again. RIP Brian as you surely deserve it. Love from us Heather, Micheline, Edouard, Ron and extended family - Posted by: Louis and Darlene Fisette (Friends ) on: Nov 06, 2019
