Quesnelle, Noel Theodore

Noel Theodore Quesnelle, a husband, father, grandfather, friend and supporter, 81 years, of Sudbury quietly passed away Saturday, January 25, 2020 surrounded by family. Born to the late Henry Quesnelle and Delphine Giroux and brother to his 8 siblings: Jeannine (Cookie) McCormack (Gary) of Sault Ste Marie and predeceased by Edith Piramalli (Frank), Rudy Quesnelle, Harold (Joe) Quesnelle, June Deresti Paul), Conrad (Bucko) Quesnelle, Gerry Quesnelle, and Henry Quesnelle (Lorraine. He was born and raised in Nestorville and Sault Ste Marie and moved to Sudbury in 1957. He is fondly remembered by many friends from working at the Coulson Hotel in the late 1950's-1960's and later the Detox Program in Sudbury and Elliot Lake.  Noel also served many years as chair of the John Howard Society. He met the love of his life Dianna for the first time in 1959 but was too much of a wild child to settle down. Thankfully they reconnected in 1978 and married in 1980.  They spent 42 years together, enjoying their children, always entertaining with his storytelling and jokes. They also loved family time camping, boating, fishing, travelling and upon retirement became snowbirds for many years spending winter at their condo in Florida. As everyone knows, Noel was a lifelong Montreal Canadians fan! He was a friend of Bill W. and Dr. Bob for over 45 years. A mentor, confidant and friend to many, never missing a chance to provide support, guidance, direction and empathy, relishing the lifelong friends he made during this time in his life journey. Noel is survived by his wife Dianna, his children; David Quesnelle (Hillary), Deborah Brown (James), Kimberly Plexman (Kevin) and Dawn Swick. Cherished grandfather of six loving grandchildren: Antaya, Emma, Mackenzie, Chloe, Evan and Kyle. He will be dearly missed by his many precious nieces and nephews. In his own words, we need not worry as he is feeling just "Tickety-Boo".  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to the Monarch Recovery Services (Ladies & Gentleman), 402 Brady Street, Sudbury, ON P3B 2P6.

  3. Dear Dianna, Deborah, Angela and Family, You are in my thoughts and prayers as you celebrate the life of your beloved Noel. My memories of Noel go back to the Coulson Hotel days, when he was a friend of my father’s, Nels Thibault. Meeting up in later years was always a treat, to see his huge smile and joyful countenance. What a blessing to see the lives you created together. I would so love to be at the gathering in Noel’s honour in March, but, unfortunately for me, will be away that week for March Break with my Family. God bless you all. Your friend and fan forever, Diane Ikonen
