FOURNIER, Michael David
March 26, 2024

It is with much love and fond memories that we mourn the passing of Michael Fournier, who passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the age of 63 on March 26, 2024.

His courageous battle with abdominal carcinoma since being diagnosed in November 2023 showed his strength and dignity in facing life challenges.
He was generous and had a kind soul and lived a life helping others. Born and raised in Cornwall, Ontario, to the late Lucien (Leslie) Fournier and the late Lillian (Tootsie) Gaines.

Married his childhood sweetheart, Lorraine and were married over 41 years. Together they raised a wonderful daughter Melissa, who lovingly will cherish memories of his kind heart and generous nature. Will be lovingly remembered by his 2 grandchildren Ryan and Claire.

Brother, Allen Fournier (Rachel).

Brother-in-law to Denise Besner (Richard) and predeceased by Jacqueline Rupert (Russ)

Uncle to Kelly Fournier (Chantal), Kevin Fournier (Julie), Marc Besner (Tina), Kevin Besner (Dave) and Jodie Rupert (Matt)

Great Uncle to Élya and Trycia Fournier, Logan and Kate Fournier, Paige, Chase and Alexis Besner and Kane Rupert.

A dear friend to many….

    My most sincere condolences to Lorraine, Melissa and family. I remember meeting Michael at an event many years ago. He was friendly and kind and had a huge smile on his face. May he always be remembered with that smile.

    It was in the summer of 1979 when I was allowed to meet Michael while visiting my friend Lorraine.
    Michael, who let me become part of his circle of friends as a matter of course during my stay. Together we spent carefree days and had a lot of fun.
    Besides Lorraine, it was Michael who made my time in Canada unforgettable to this day. Thank you so much for that, Michael.
