It is with great sadness that the family of Maurice Paul Vincent announces his passing at the age of 54 years due to a motor vehicle accident on December 21, 2019. Maurice will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 25 years, Michèle and his children, Jacques, Véronique and Olivia.
Maurice graduated as a civil engineer from the University of Alberta and went on to specialize in information technology. He spent his working life in those fields.
At the time of his death he was an employee of Firma Foreign Exchange. Maurice grew up in Edmonton and was proud of his French-Canadian heritage which was passed on to his children. Throughout Maurice’s life, he contributed many volunteer hours to the church and community. Amongst the many volunteer projects he was involved in, the installation of murals depicting the Indigenous and French-Canadian pioneer history in the Grandin LRT station was a source of great pride for him. He was a very devoted husband and father who loved to coach and cheer for the children’s various sports teams. A favorite pastime was playing his weekly shinny hockey with his buddies. He loved music, crossword puzzles, working on his 1961 Studebaker Hawk and spending time with family and friends at Moose Lake.
Maurice is survived by many friends and relatives including his parents, Georges and Huguette Vincent; his brothers, Denis (Monique) and Pierre (Sheila); parents-in-law, Eveline and Robert Kruchten; brother-in-law, Mike (Andrea); sisters-in-law, Selina (Anil), Rachel (John) and Angela (Jordan); and 18 nephews and nieces.
Reverend Jean Claude Ndanga, CFIC will celebrate a Funeral Mass for Maurice at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at St-Thomas d’Aquin Catholic Church, 8410-89 Street, Edmonton.
Cremation has taken place and the interment will be in the spring.
