On Sunday, July 18, 2021, Gilbert Fournier, son, husband, father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully at the Riverview Health Centre at the age of 84.
He will be missed and always remembered by his wife Denise (nee Proteau), daughter Louise (Marc), son Marc (Stella), daughter Joanne, daughter Suzanne (Hélène), son Pierre (Janelle), sister Marguerite, brother Paul, as well as his 14 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and seven in-laws.
Gilbert was a humble, knowledgeable, kind and generous human being with tremendous underlying passion for his family. He faced a number of challenges throughout his life, some say he had nine lives, but he never complained and held his head high the whole way. His journey has come to an end and he can rest forever in peace.
The family extends a special thank you to the home palliative care team as well as to Dr. Musley.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba (prostate cancer) or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
