He is lovingly remembered by his spouse of 21 years, Debra (née Podritske), his stepsons Chad and Wade Dux and their families, his mother, Madeleine Bérubé of Beaumont, brother Armand (Kim), sisters Carmen (Clayton), Diane (Jean) Isabelle (Marcel) Irène (Rob), Béatrice, Patricia (Julien) and Murielle (John), 14 nieces and nephews, 17 great nieces and nephews, numerous cousins, and an abundance of friends and acquaintances.
Réal was predeceased by his father, Eugène; first wife Brenda (née Prouty), brother-in-law John Grayson, his infant baby sister Françine, and his grandparents, Marie-Louis & Marie-Anne Bérubé and William & Clarice Demers.
