After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Éric Jacob, 66, of Cap-Pelé, passed away peacefully on Saturday March 7, 2020 at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Léo and Enna (Melanson) Jacob.
He will be missed by his wife of 48 years, Lucie (née Cormier); his two sons: Ricky (Lynne) of Dieppe and Peter (Karine) of Cap-Pelé; two sisters: Rosella Bourque (late Robert) of Shemogue and Marcella Jacob (late Garnett) of Trois-Ruisseaux; six brothers: Eudore (Nicole), Valois, Francis (Kartini), Mauril, Valérie (Glenda) all five of Petit-Cap and Marcel of Petit-Shemogue; four grand-children: Alexandre, Jérémie, Simon and Émilie; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by an infant grandson, Danik and a brother, Hilaire.
Eric enjoyed spending time in his garage doing carpentry work. He also enjoyed taking drives to local wharf, fish and lobster plants. He also loved spending time with his four beloved grand children, especially with his little princess Émilie, watching both Alexandre and Jérémie play hockey and spending quality time with Simon.
As per Éric’s wishes, there will be no visitation at the funeral center. The funeral mass will be celebrated in Sainte-Thérèse-d’Avila R.C. church, 2646, Acadie Rd, Cap-Pelé on Saturday March 14, 2020 at 10:30 am.
