It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Emile John Courey on February 8, 2019, beloved husband of Adele. They recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.

Loving father of Stephen (Marie), Louise (André), Andrea, Alan (Trudy); cherished grandfather of Caroline (James), Natalie, Claudine (Anthony), Matthew, Philippe, Chloe, Daniel, Patrick, Gabriella, Logan, Ryan, and great grandchildren Sofia and Jack.

He enjoyed his time in Saint-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson with his parents, his brothers and sisters, many nieces and nephews and extended family. His life was enriched by a healthy and active lifestyle, wonderful lifelong friends, and his amazing tennis, golf and sailing buddies. A man of great integrity and gentleness, he served his church and his community with dedication.

None of you probably realize the happy times your Dad and your whole family gave me. Each of you touched me in a profound and positive way.
To my buddy Steven Peter, “Big” Al, Lou ( say it with punch) sweet Andrea and most certainly to the most beautiful lady in the world Adele, my heartfelt condolences. You have all been and always will be the source of some of my fondest memories.

Mrs Adele Courey, Steve, Loiuise, Andrea and Alan. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time! I have some nice memories of your dad in the 90's when I spent a few years during the summer up in Esterel at the family compound! Your dad was always very kind and always a Gentleman! I have some fond memories of him. From our family to yours, our very sincere sympathies to all of you! May he RIP and his memory Eternal!
