Roussel, Gérard Emilien

Surrounded by his loving family, Gérard Roussel at the age of 81 years, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 29, 2022. Beloved husband of the late Cecile (née Pinard) Roussel. Loving father of Lynn (Brad Dussiaume), Alain Roussel (Debbie Bouillon) and Robert Roussel (Deb Sabourin). Cherished Poppa of Lee-Ann, Melanie, Sean, Erica, Erik, Mason and Owen; great grandfather of Lauren, Madison, and Ryleigh. He was the last surviving member from a family of 14. Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, and extended family members and friends. Born in Hull, QC, he was the son of the late Antonio and Laurence (née Galarneau) Roussel.

Gérard was a well-respected and hardworking self-employed sheet metal worker who took great pride in his work and in that of everyone who worked alongside him. A naturally gifted practical joker, who was always willing to share his endearing sense of humour with all right up to the very end. An avid outdoorsman who loved to fish or just spend time with family and friends at camp. Gérard was most proud of being a dedicated family man whose greatest joys in life came from the times he was able to spend in their company. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no visitation.  A Funeral Mass will be held at St-Jean de Brébeuf Church, 26 Kathleen Street, on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Scattering of the ashes will take place at a later date for family and friends.
