Carson St. Pierre
Carson St. Pierre, a lifetime resident of the area, passed away at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Sat., Nov. 26, 2011. He was 55.
Carson was born in Cornwall on Oct. 31, 1956. He was adopted when he was two by Keith and Marion St. Pierre (nee Murphy), and lived most of his life in the South Mountain and Williamsburg area.
Keith was involved in harness racing so, naturally, Carson got involved in it as well, and it played a huge part in his life until five years ago when he retired because his job made it impossible for him to continue training and racing horses. Carson enjoyed playing hockey when he was younger, and he liked watching hockey on television as well, but only when his beloved Detroit Red Wings played or when the Team Canada junior team played at Christmas. During the last five years, he came to enjoy watching NASCAR racing on the television as well.
Carson would help anyone that asked, and he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed by many as he always had a smile on his face and a practical joke up his sleeve.
Carson is survived by his wife, Anne (nee Collins); his children, Karla St. Pierre (Robert) of Winchester and William of Hanesville; and his stepchildren, Nathan Humphries (Becky) of Sarnia, Aaron Santilli (Ashley) of Ottawa, Samantha Santilli-Jacques (Joe) of Whitby, and David Humphries of Ottawa. Carson will be fondly remembered by grandchildren Ashley, Jordan, and Travis Roderick; Chelsea, Justin, and Jacob Humphries; Alexia, Anne-Marie, Shawn, and Austin Santilli-Jacques; and Michael Santilli. He was a dear brother of Ethel Greene (Joe) of Westport, and Charlotte Geddies (Buck) of Carp. He was predeceased by his parents, Keith and Marion St. Pierre (nee Murphy). He is also survived by nieces and nephews.
Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Williamsburg on Wed., Nov. 30. The funeral service was held at the funeral home on Thurs., Dec. 1 with Rev. Ralph Collins officiating, followed by cremation.
Donations to the Dundas County Hospice or North Dundas Minor Hockey Association would be appreciated by the family.
