ST. JACQUES, Rene - We lost our dad and grandfather suddenly at home on May 13th, 2007. We knew the day would come when we would have to say goodbye but we were all totally unprepared. He was loved by many. He had more living to do and he wanted to have more time to spend with his children and their families, Ron and Brenda, Gary and Diane, Darlene and Gilles, Denis and Elaina, Terry, Delphine and Andre, Joanne and Dan, Jeff and Carole. Rene married Louise St. Jacques in 1952 and he never stopped missing her after her early death in 1989. We know it was his love of family that continued to give his life meaning and great pleasure. There are many stories of our father that define his life. Many stories speak to the loving man, his mild nature, and his wonderful sense of humour that usually involved a practical joke on some unsuspecting person. He spent many good years at his cottage on Rock Lake with family and friends. He loved his weekly card games with his family. He particularly enjoyed the cruise this last February and longed for more trips like that. He will be missed by his many grandchildren, Ryan (Athena), Amanda (Sean), Maxine (Luc), Steven, Michael (Kim), Chris (Danielle), Ben, Adam, Melissa, Jordan, Pam, Gillian, Kyle, Alex, and Danielle. His life was made richer by his many good friends particularly the Matthieu, Depatie and Tooley families. He was loved by his brothers and sisters Irene (Jack), John (Yvette), Claire (Bob, predeceased), Rita (Brian), and those that predeceased him, Bea (Chuck), Theresa (Charlie), Ray (Marie) and Leo. Rene was a loving man who was always happiest it seemed when surrounded by his family. Our lives, in turn, were enriched by having shared his life. Our lives will forever have a piece missing in his absence. "To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - This is to have succeeded." Resting at the JACKSON AND BARNARD FUNERAL HOME, 233 Larch St., Sudbury. Funeral Prayers in the R.J. Barnard Chapel, Wednesday, May 16th, 2007 at 10 a.m. Cremation at the Park Lawn Crematorium.
