A Friendship Celebration will be held on Saturday March 14, 2015 – 1:00 pm at Bert & Verna’s home…#23 Countryside Mobile Home Park 2500 Hwy 97B SE Salmon Arm BC.
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of “Bert” Norbert Georges Joseph Lamoureux after a lengthy battle with cancer. He had just turned 68. Bert’s new found relationship with Jesus became a great solace and gave him much peace in his heart.
Bert was predeceased by his father Adhemar, brother Rene and baby sister Doris. He is survived by his Mom Delima, his sister Mathilde (Gill), brothers Bernard (Sherrie), Jacques and Mike (Barb), daughter Tamara (Alec), step daughter Gail(Nathan), grand-daughters Abigail and Mia and many nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends, especially his life partner and soul-mate Verna.
Bert spent many years in the Red Deer, Alberta area as a carpenter and also worked in the oil industry. His love of animals, especially the raising of cats, dogs and horses, brought him much joy. It was a natural choice for him to be a farrier for many years in Peace River.
Bert will be remembered for his love of nature, passion for oil painting, dancing, hunting, camping, fishing and anything outdoors! His friends will also remember Bert for his bargain shopping skills, his great sense of humour and carefree, fun loving personality!
Special thanks to the staff at Bastion Care Home for their kind and compassionate care in Bert’s final months. They provided a quality of care that was above and beyond. It was so appreciated by the family. Also, many thanks to Dr. DeWet for his loving, personal attention and prayers.
