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. More than anything, Emile’s true joy was his family. 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.
