It is with great sadness that the family of Gilbert Soetaert announces his passing. He left us peacefully on April 23, 2019 at the age of 85. He died as he lived, surrounded by family, with laughter and tears, songs and stories.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Rita; children, Ken (Gerri), Corine (Ray), Gail (Jacques), and Dillis (Leon); 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
As a grand knight with the Knights of Columbus, his faith was strong and his passion for volunteering in the community well known to all.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to the staff at the Sturgeon Community Hospital and the Youville Home for their care and compassion to Gilbert.
