It is with incredible sadness that the family of Maurice David Joseph Boissonnault announces his sudden passing on Monday, September 16, 2013 at the age of 57 years.
He will be forever in the heart of his wife and best friend of 29 years, Gladys; his children, Brandy (Sean) Roberts and Shane (Nicole); his mother Marcella; siblings, Roger (Janet), Robert (Susan), Dwayne (Shirley) and Colleen. Maurice was the proudest and most amazing Papa to Brogan “Big Bloc”, Dekyn “Dekie Bear” and Foxten “Little Beaver”, as well as honorary Papa to Julie, Lincoln and Bella. Maurice will also be forever remembered by aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
He was predeceased by his father Constant Boissonnault.
Maurice was a business tycoon in the automotive and tire industry and an avid and passionate racer. He did so many things in life well, but those were an area he excelled in (even if he did red light a few times).
A Visitation will be held between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at Connelly-McKinley, St. Albert Chapel, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert.
A Funeral Mass will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, September 23, 2013 at St. Jean Baptiste Parish, 10020 - 100 Avenue, Morinville. The family asks that those in attendance wear purple in honour of Maurice.
