It is with great sadness that the family of Claude Antoine Cormier from Moncton announces his sudden passing on August 19 at the age of 54. He would have been 55 in September. He is the beloved adopted son of Hector J. Cormier and Simonne LeBlanc-McCarthy. He was loved beyond words, and will be forever missed by his longtime partner of 22 years, Elizabeth Gallant and her family and friends. His natural parents were Aldé Cormier and Corinne Hébert.
He also leaves behind six brothers and sisters: Anne-Marie Appleby (Paul Griffith) from Stoney Creek, Ontario, Francine (Gérard) LeBlanc from Dieppe, Norma Gillis from Moncton, Albert (Mae) Cormier from Moncton and Allain Cormier from Edmonton, Alberta. He also leaves to mourn a half-sister Nicole Cormier (Ray Green) from Moncton. He was predeceased in death by his beloved brothers Yves and Aldé jr, as well as his aunt, Sister Laura, n.d.s.c.
Claude graduated from Mathieu-Martin in Dieppe. He also attended courses at the Université de Moncton and at Oulton College. He owned and operated his own business for a period of time. Claude was a self-taught computer and internet technician. He was greatly loved by all who appreciated his kind, generous, compassionate and sentimental spirit. He loved music, travel, camping, animals, and was a gifted photographer. It is our hope, in his memory, that you will do an unexpected act of kindness for some unfortunate soul, in his memory.
In this time of pandemic, the family will opt for a private burial ceremony at the Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe.
Funeral arrangements are in the professional care of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Moncton (858-1900).
