ARTHUR (ART) POIRIER It is with utmost sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Art on October 21, 2013 at age 55 after a very courageous battle with cancer. Art will be truly missed by his wife Julie née Hamonic, sons Patrick (Michelle), Julien (Jill), Jérémy (Dina) grandchildren Caden, Ethan and Fenix. Also to mourn his loss are his mother Emilienne, numerous family members and countless friends. He will be welcomed in heaven by the members of his family (his father Armand, his brother Claude, his sister Jeanette, father-in-law Léon) and his many friends that have gone before him. Art loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was a very good business person and he often used his numerous talents to help people in need. He also loved to be with people (mainly to make them laugh), Miami Beach, his numerous collectibles but the "love of his life" was his family. He greatly appreciated their selfless support throughout his life but especially at the end of his journey. The family would like to thank all those who supported Art in countless ways during the last several years. Rest in peace "Art the Fart"! Funeral services to be held at the Otterburne R. C. Church at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, October 26. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Children's Wish Foundation.

Il sera acceilli au ciel par les membres de sa famille qui l'on précédé (son père Armand, son frère Claude, sa soeur Jeanette et son beau-père Léon) ainsi que ses nombreux amis. Arthur aimait la vie et la vivait pleinement. Il était une très bonne personne d'affaires et à maintes reprises il a utilisé ses nombreux talents pour venir en aide àtous et à chacun qu'il voyait dans le besoin. Il aimait aussi être avec les gens (surtout pour les faire rire), Miami Beach, mais sa plus grande amour était réservée pour sa famille. Il a beaucoup apprécié leur appui inconditionnel pendant sa vie et plus particulièrement au courant des derniers mois.
