PICHÉ, Maurice R.
November 2, 2022

January 5, 1940 – November 2, 2022

We are sad to announce the peaceful passing of Maurice R. Piché, at the McGill University Health Center on November 2, 2022 at the age of 82. Pre-deceased by his wife Noëlla (née Tessier), he is survived by his 4 children: Francine (Donald Audas), Joanne (Harry Schulz), Raymond (Leita Piché) and Daniel. He was most proud of his grand-children Jennifer, Mélanie, Nicholas, Sean, Sam, Elizabeth and Caitlin and great grand-children Christopher, Erica, Theodore, and Raffael.

One of 10 children, Maurice leaves behind his sisters Estelle Cameron (Mac – deceased) of Strathroy, Jeannine Chenier (Claude – deceased) of Sudbury and his brothers Hervé (Suzanne – deceased) of Espanola, Frank (Lucette) of Blind River and Richard (Françoise) of Sudbury.  He is predeceased by siblings, Gabrielle Yocom (Jim – deceased), Ronald (Theresa – deceased), Bernadette Laurin and Roly (Caroline-deceased).  He also leaves behind several brothers and sisters-in-law, as well as many nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews.

Born in Espanola on January 5, 1940, Maurice attended the Jesuit Seminary in Ottawa and went on to complete his education at the Royal Military College in St-Jean-sur Richelieu.  He began his work career as a Sales Representative with Procter and Gamble and moved his family to Timmins.  While in Timmins him and Noëlla became active members of Le Centre Culturel La Ronde and were bestowed certificates as Signing Members of the organization’s Charter and Life-time membership to the organization that is still in existence today.

He found his calling in the Lumber Industry when he joined Lumbermen’s Underwriting Alliance.  He moved his family to Dollard-des-Ormeaux in 1972 to take on additional responsibilities and continue his progression. He retired as the Vice President Canadian Region in 2005 after an almost 40-year career in which he garnered many awards including the LUA Man of the Year in 1974 and the Canadian Lumber Industry Wood Award in 2002.  He is remembered fondly by his many colleagues, clients, and friends.

Long time parishioner of Marie-Reine-de-la-Paix in Pierrefonds, he was a warden for several years.  He was a proud and active 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus council 6096 and Assembly 2310.

    A kind, warm and remarkable man who I had the pleasure of working with at LUA. Spent many times enjoying his company at LUA events with fond memories. Especially enjoyed his stories and our shared love of hockey. Wishing his family peace and love and the celebration of a life well lived in a father they can be proud of. A toast of Remy Martin to my friend Maurice!
