VICTOR HENRI JOSEPH BOISSONEAULT
Victor was born on January 7, 1956 in Winnipeg. He spent most of his career working at Winnipeg Hydro (now Manitoba Hydro) and retired to a part time job driving a school bus.
Victor spent many weekends at Toniata Beach (Falcon Lake) entertaining friends, family and anyone who wandered into the evening campfire. Victor and Louise managed to maintain his love for camping right up to this past summer. They could never pass up a garage sale or any good deal. He was usually the first one on the dance floor at any event and always walked out with more than one social prize. Victor touched everyone with his raw but keen sense of storytelling and humour with his ever-contagious laugh. He had such a big presence in any room and was usually the life of the party. In his younger days he and his best friend Glenn entered many golf tournaments, went on skiing trips and spent several hours fishing.
He was predeceased by his father Jules Boissoneault, mother Iona (nee Prevost), and stepfather Robert Martin.
He is lovingly remembered by his ex-wife Melanie, children, Joel (spouse Michelle, grandchildren, Aria, Harlow), and Karissa (partner Scott, grandchildren, Donavin, Dawson), his partner for the last seven years Louise Branconnier and her sons, Jordan, Byron, Tyrone (Victor's very special buddy), brother Mark (partner Robin, nephew Dan), sister Denise (spouse Blair, nieces, Courtnie, Tessa), brother Denis (spouse Denise, nephews, Raymond, Gilles, Roland, niece Lise), brother Marcel (spouse Gloria, nephews, Daniel, Richard, David). Also left to cherish his memory are numerous other family members, co-workers and friends. He will be sadly missed by all those who loved him.
The family wishes to extend a special thank-you to the home care nurses and doctors who cared for him.

Condolences & Memories (11 entries)
It has been hard dealing with the thought of you being gone. As you slipped away from me I wanted you to come back. I tried telling you to stay with me but I know you told me you didn’t want to suffer. I love you with all my heart, you have been my rock, my sunshine. I will forever miss you. My heart aches for you when I think of you. We had good times and those will be in my heart and carry me through. Xoxo - Posted by: Louise Branconnier (Partner) on: Dec 30, 2019
Can't imagine not hearing your jokes or pranks going forward Victor. No one ever made me laugh longer or harder than you did. I was fortunate to have you as my Brother in Law and Friend. So many things I recall that still make memories that I'll treasure for many years to come. Your memory lives on Victor......Blair - Posted by: Blair McInnes (Brother in Law) on: Dec 11, 2019
"We always had a special friendship. I will miss you deeply. No more suffering, you can rest now! Please watch over our children and grandchildren from above, you are now their guardian angel! Rest In Peace Victor...." - Posted by: Melanie Boissoneault (Ex Wife) on: Dec 11, 2019
Nice guy, always smiling and made others feel good, leaves some great memories. Our thoughts are with friends and family. Good bye Vic. Bridget & Bryan Roberton - Posted by: Bridget & Bryan Roberton (cousin) on: Dec 10, 2019
Dad, I will miss you so much. Growing up you were my hero, you made me laugh so much. From our watching South Park and Mad TV together, to you showing me all four favourite Cheech and Chong skits, the laughs were always there. I’m not sure how to move forward in life knowing I can’t call up my dad or stop in for a surprise visit. I’m glad we got to make more good memories of going to Bryan Adams and our awesome time at the casino before the sickness took hold. My heart breaks more with each passing day. I’m still numb, I don’t want to believe this is real. Please watch over me, Joel and the grandkids. We love you so much!!!! - Posted by: Karissa (Daughter ) on: Dec 10, 2019
Sending our Condolences to Victor’s families and friends. My dad worked with Victor and the gang at Winnipeg Hydro for many years. If I had a dollar for every story I heard about the antics these guys did I would be a rich man. May the memories of Victor fill your hearts with Love and Happiness.

So sorry to hear of your loss. He will be missed by friends and family..too young to leave. I remember when Victor and Mark, with wives, came to Thunder Bay, on one of their travels, and looked us up and we took them around our city to see the sights..we had a really nice visit with them. - Posted by: Jeff & Sheila Prevost (Cousin) on: Dec 08, 2019
We have known Victor around 25 years, if you needed help or someone to talk to and listen he was there. Going to miss you. - Posted by: Ed and Pat ( Long Time Neighbor and Friend ) on: Dec 07, 2019
My condolences to Vic's family and friends. I worked with Vic for over 15 yrs in the street light department. Vic always had a story or a joke to tell, back in the late 80's almost every Monday off a bunch of us would go to Grand Beach, one of Vic's favorite saying "Where's your muscle shirt " would eventually come out. - Posted by: Mike Mackinnon (Coworker ) on: Dec 07, 2019
