It is with deep sadness the family announce the passing of Emlien J. Bruneau on December 7, 2021, after a brief illness.
Emile is survived by his wife of 70 years, Rose Bruneau, daughter Fran (Gord), son Brian, and daughter Janice.
Emile was the ninth child of Emilia (Desrosiers) and Ramond Bruneau. Emilien was predeceased by siblings, Leona, Donot, Delima, Irene, Hilaire, Dennis, Fernande, Agathe, and Dave. He is survived by siblings, Marie, Germaine, and Real.
Emile spent the first 20 years of his working life in the Canadian Armed Forces (1st Division R.C.H.A.) He finished his working career with the City of Winnipeg Parks Department.
Emile retired to his cabin in the woods at St. Malo, MB where he and Rose spent 29 happy years. Recently they moved to a senior apartment in Winnipeg, and the last year in an assisted living apartment.
Emilien was 91 years young at the time of his passing.
Dad, you will be sorely missed but forever in our hearts and thoughts.
