PAYETTE, John Anthony
November 11, 2022

Sadly we announce the death of John Anthony Payette who gracefully departed from this world in his 89th year on November 11, 2022. The last surviving member of 9 siblings. He was born in Lachine to Irene Snider and Stanislas Payette. Loving husband of 63 years to Jil Carol Johansson (deceased); loving father to Michael John, Kerry Ann Payette (Chris Bell), grandfather to Madison Joy Bell (Nick Turcot) and MacKenzie James Bell. Brother-in-law to Joyce Payette, Lise Payette, Lyn Johansson and Gary Johansson and uncle to many nieces and nephews.

His joy for life was always on display engaging everyone with a warm smile and lively conversation. His strong sense of community came from his deeply rooted faith which granted him love and energy to help out countless people through a variety of causes. He was a humble and much loved parishioner of St. Edward The Confessor and St. Thomas à Becket, communities where he found comfo
rt and nourishment for his soul. A devoted family man who lived his life with a spring in his step, love in his heart and a warm hug for all. His remarkable presence will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and community.

Visitation from 10am-11am followed by a service 11am-12pm will be held on Saturday, November 26th at Saint Edward The Confessor, 98 Aurora Ave, Pointe-Claire, Qc H9R 3G7

    Remembering a good friend and his love of life, his family, his faith, and his ever present smile. Our

    rivaled hockey games, Jim’s Padres and Charlies Angels, our Friday cribbage meets, but mostly just remembering an ‘all around’ great guy and good friend. He will truly be missed by all.

    He was a very dear uncle and he would light up every time I saw him.

      Thanks so much Nancy. I’m so glad to hear from you. I think of you often, even from far away whenever I pass by a sight we visited together or if I see it in the news or something I feel a sense of connection with you and it always brings a smile to my face.
      Your uncle Johnny was as lively as ever, right up to his death. Even though he could drive me nuts I was so lucky be with him for the last 4 years. It’s hard to believe but the older he got, especially towards the end, the less I consider him a father a the more he felt like a good friend.
