EMILIEN JOSEPH BOURCIER It is with a great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, dad, opa and brother on Monday, November 18, 2013. Emile was born January 22, 1959 in Winnipeg to Emilien Joseph Bourcier and Christine Mistel. He was predeceased by his father in 1994 and his mother in 1999. Left to cherish his memory and everlasting love is his wife Patti, daughter Elise, sons David (Terra), Chris (Candace), grandchildren Damien, Sophie and soon to arrive baby Knox, mother-in-law Mary and brother-in-law Bob. He also leaves his sisters and brothers Laverne (Rick), Yvonne (Mike), Theresa (Brian), Andy (Lyndie), Terry (Judy), Luke (Donna) and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Emile was a wonderful kind soul who was there always for his family and friends. He was so proud to be a dad and opa.

  • My darling you are and always be the love of my life. I never imagined that someone as wonderful as you came into my life. I hope you knew that you made me whole again and completed our family when we needed it the most. You instantly became a dad or pops as chris would say and when most men would have ran from two boys who needed a dad you embraced it and loved them and me with all your heart. Thank you for giving me a daughter later in our marriage, she reminds me everyday of you. Why God took you away from us I will never understand, we are so lost without you, you were my rock. I promise to cowboy up and try to go on living without you for our kids and grandkids but I died too on that day with you. Please watch over us and help me however you can so I know you are still with us. All my love till the end of time.....patti xoxoxo xox - Posted by: Patti (Love of my life) on: Dec 11, 2013
