Wilfred Lamoureux of Winchester passed away peacefully at home after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s and cancer on Nov. 2, 2007. He was 87.
He will be dearly missed by his wife Pierrette (nee Branchault) and his children Jocelyn (Douglas) Smith of Winchester Springs, Perry, Andrew, both of Winchester, and Colleen of Chesterville. He was the brother of Alice Lewis, and was predeceased by five brothers and five sisters. He was the companion to his dog Spike, and his cat Minou.
He started working at the very young age of eight with his mother and siblings on their dairy farm, where he grew up, after his father passed away. He met his wife Pierrette of Casselman and were married for 51 wonderful years. Together they lived and raised their four children on the dairy farm. Wilfred and his sons worked the farm together for many years until his illness made him unable to continue.
He enjoyed family members and friends visiting him at home, sharing laughs, stories, and wonderful memories.
The pallbearers were Brian Stobo; Matthew Clark; John, Dwayne and Barry Cinnamon; and Richard Cayer. Morris Korevaar was an honourary pallbearer.
Wilfred (Dad) may you finally rest in peace. You will always be with us forever. Love Pierrette, Jocelyn and Douglas, Perry, Andrew, and Colleen and Donald.
The funeral arrangements were entrusted to Daniels Funeral Chapels in Winchester.
