Gallant, Sterling

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Sterling Louis Gallant on Wednesday April 1st, 2015, at the age of 73, at Health Sciences North, Sudbury, surrounded by family. Beloved husband of the late Monique (nee Noel) Gallant. Loving father of Chris Gallant (Sherry), Gilbert Tessier (Madeline Lemieux), Lianne Tessier (Jerry Brown), and Andrea Thompkins (Bill). Cherished grandfather of Sarah, Matthew, Jessy, Cole, Rhys, Maeve, Asher, and Gabriel. Predeceased by his sisters Eilen, Marjorie, Shirley and Marie. Survived by his sisters Joyce and Lorraine and brother Leonard. Dear son of the late Henry and Mae Gallant of Rustico, Prince Edward Island. Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. Sterling was born in Charlottetown, P.E.I., on December 24th, 1941. He retired from INCO after 30 years of service. He enjoyed playing cards, golfing, hunting, fishing, and his sweets. Sterling also had a great love for his cats. But, more than anything else, he loved being a papa to his precious grandchildren. His unique sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him. In keeping with Sterling’s wishes, there will be no visitation or service. A celebration of Sterling’s life will take place at Ferrigan’s Pub in Garson on Sunday April 19th, 2015, between 2pm to 5pm. Cremation at the Park Lawn Crematorium. Arrangements entrusted to Ranger’s Cremation and Burial Services Ltd. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of Sudbury would be appreciated by the family. Goodbye dad, we love you, we will miss you.
