1939 - 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Louis on Friday, September 23, 2022, at the Ste. Anne Hospital, Ste. Anne, MB, at the age of 84.
Left to cherish his memory are his two sons, Gerald (Diane) and Robert (Belinda); four grandchildren, Marc (Sara), Gina (David), Christine (Zach) and Kaylene (Kody) and seven great-grandchildren, Émilie, Mia, Alyssa, Paige, Peyton, Myles and Kassian; niece and goddaughter Claudette Hupé; brother Jean-Paul and two sisters-in-law, Juliette and Thérèse.
He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 62 years, Edmonde; his parents, Paul and Regina (Larocque); brother Léo; sisters, Jeanette and Lucille; his in-laws, Edmond and Josette (Plouffe); two sisters-in-law, Claudette and Marguerite (Marcien); five brothers-in-law, Marcel (Aurore), Lionel (Hélène), Florent, Fernand and Denis and great-grandson Dawson Nadeau.
Louis was born March 8, 1939 and lived in Ste. Anne, MB, where he raised his family along with Edmonde. Louis drove truck all his life and loved it. He worked at Petit Transfer in Ile Des Chênes, MB, owned and operated his own gravel truck and ended his career working for Bernie Vermette.
Louis spent a lot of time at the arena, first watching his sons play hockey and then watching his grandchildren. Pépère always had a pocket full of loonies and we knew we'd always get a loonie after each game, plus another loonie for each goal we scored. He even had the privilege of watching a few of his great-grandchildren play a few times and the loonie tradition continued.
Cremation has taken place. A private family service and interment will take place at a later date.
The family wishes to thank Claudette for all you've done for dad/pépère over the years.
