Peter (Pete) Joseph Georges Brabant
Passed away suddenly at the age of 59 at the Montreal General Hospital on February 15, 2020. Peter is survived by his beloved wife of 20 years, Brigitte, children David and Stephanie, granddaughter Sacha, sister Laureen and family, and special friend Elmo, and many family members and friends to mourn his passing.
At his request, no immediate service will be held.
Peter was born January 20, 1961, in Les Cèdres, Quebec to Georges Brabant and Theresa Phillips. Peter loved hockey, football, playing cribbage, listening to Pink Floyd, gardening, cooking and most of all, being home with his wife.
He was a kind, sweet, honest soul who set out to accomplish what he wanted to do with his pragmatic, positive, playful and entertaining character. As a young teen he played in the Quebec Pee Wee Tournament against Wayne Gretzky. Brigitte’s late brother Alex often recalled the days in A Ma Baie gathering around the hockey rink on Station Road with buddies to watch Peter play hockey and proudly remembers saying “look at Brabant go, the guy was born with wings on his feet”, such a joy to watch him skate”.
Mr. Brabant proudly served in the Canadian Armed Forces Navy for 12 years as Boatswain (deck seaman) based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia and served during Desert Storm among many other tours. In 2002, he set out to become a commercial real estate agent in Quebec and continued his studies to also become a successful home and building inspector. Peter’s biggest dream was to own his own building and he accomplished all that he wanted. He was successful.
A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by family.
Arrangements entrusted to Voluntas Commemoration.

I hate that I can’t see your face,
except for a picture on my mirror.
But I love that when I look at it,
I feel you are near.
I hate that you can’t speak to me
when I mention the word “DAD.”
But I love the way your voice is in my memory
from all the talks we had.
I hate that God took you so soon,
when I still needed you here.
But I love the thought of you at peace,
no more pain and no more fear.
I hate not knowing for sure
what happens when you die.
But I really love to believe
there is a heaven past the sky.
The thing I love to hate the most
is when people think I’m so strong.
But it actually only seems that way because
I can’t accept the fact that you really are gone!
From your loving daughter
David Peter BrabantFebruary 17, 2020 at 10:10 pm
I will miss you so much dad, I really wish I would have made more time to spend with you. You were tough on us but I now realize it’s what made me the man I am today and I thank you for it. I know your still looking out for us and your not gone but what I wouldn’t give for one last conversation with you! Sadly it’s going to have to wait a little while. Rest in peace , I love you dad

RIP Beautiful Pete,
May your sprit fly across the clouds to clear sky’s.
May the ice beneath your skates be smooth so that slap shot be strong and hard.
May your cards come out forever 15 on your crib board.
Love you Pete

Being my classmates older brother, I knew you since you were about 7 or 8, you always made people laugh, we loved that big smile of yours, the way you took care of your Mom & your baby sister Laureen, you were a great son, brother & later in life dad, you made your mark on this world Peter, you’ll be greatly missed by all, you’re one of the people we think of when we say A ma Baie, enjoy your after life, and make those up there laugh, as you did for us.
