1918 ~ 2014
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Victor Vincent at the age of 96. Victor died peacefully on October 16th, 2014.
Left to mourn his passing are his loving wife Rose of 65 years, and his children Gilbert, Gisèle (George) Holowinski, Aline (Wayne) Madsen, and Fernand. His memory will also be cherished by his grandchildren, Avery (Ginger), Vincent (Dana), Troy, Carena (Peter), Kyle (Kim) and his 7 great grandchildren, Evan, Matthew, Brady, Jeremy, Sierra, Charles and Caspian. He will be fondly missed by brothers-in-law Adrien (Joanne), Henri, sisters-in-law Aline, Thérèse (Ed), Odile (Gilles), nieces and nephews.
Victor was predeceased by his parents Fortunat and Marie-Louise Vincent, all of his 13 siblings, Marie-Coronna, Oscar, Aldéa, Marie Antoinette, Maria, Philippe, Jeanne, Omer, Wilfrid, Antoinette, Joseph Fernand, Bella, Sylvio, and his daughter-in-law Rita.
Victor was born March 14th, 1918 in St. Georges. Rarely heard to complain, he worked hard on the farm and was always willing to lend a hand and his expertise to fellow farmers and neighbours. Victor liked to keep busy and active. He enjoyed his retirement years travelling, golfing, bowling, playing pool, sandbag and cards. He enjoyed good health until a few months ago, but still kept up with sports and news on T.V. Along with his wife Rose, he took part in many of the senior activities and functions at their church and at Foyer Chateauguay.
Dad will be remembered for his good nature, his strong work ethic, his easiness to laugh, his faith, his generosity and his devotion to his family. To us, he was a remarkable man and we feel blessed to have had such a wonderful presence in our lives. He will be forever remembered in our hearts.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place. Prayer service will be held on Tuesday, October 21st at 10:30 a.m. followed by the Mass of Resurrection at 11:00 a.m. at St. Georges Roman Catholic Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
