It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Guy Moreau of Moncton, originally from Montréal, on Monday July 6, 2020. Guy was the son of René Moreau and Andrée (Robert) Moreau.
He leaves behind his beloved wife of 29 years, Gloria LeBlanc; his cherished daughters: Annie and Isabelle; his granddaughter, Ariane Michaud, who was his pride and joy; Lucie Hamel (Serge Gagnon) of Lorraine, Québec, who he loved like a daughter; his sister, Denyse (late André) Lizotte; his brother, Yves Moreau (late Suzanne); as well as several nieces, nephews, and great friends, particularly his lifelong friends: Gaston and Blandine Laliberté of St-Bruno, Québec, and Gerry and Corinne Mallais of Moncton.
In addition to his parents, Guy was predeceased by his sister, Nicole, and his dearest friends whom he loved as family, Yvon, Estelle and Julie Hamel.
Guy enjoyed a successful career in sales, namely with Household Finance, McClean's Food Products and Eaton’s catalog, all in the Montréal area. In 1982, he was transferred from Montreal to Moncton and assumed the position of Director for the Atlantic Provinces with Alcan Aluminum, Building Products Division (which later became Gentek). He retired from that position in 1995 and had been enjoying retired life to its fullest ever since. Guy was a true "bon vivant" and was passionate about sports, particularly golf. He especially enjoyed playing golf at Royal Oaks with his favorite golf buddies, Gerry, Doug and Paul, and his long life friend and golf buddy, Rhéal. Another of his passions included spending his winters in Florida with Gloria where he enjoyed the beach, more golf and the special friends he and Gloria made during their time there.
Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family. He was very proud of his "four girls", Gloria, Annie, Isabelle and Ariane. He relished in his role as grandfather to Ariane and loved teasing her, listening to her stories, correcting her French and making her laugh. Guy had a powerful and beautiful singing voice and was an engaging entertainer and life of the party. We will miss him beyond belief.
Due to the pandemic, a private celebration of life will take place at a later date to be announced. In memory of Guy, a contribution to the CHU Dumont Foundation or the Friends of The Moncton Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. Funeral arrangements are under the professional care of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Moncton (858-1900).
