Dr Georges Surette Dr Georges Surette

Dr. Georges Surette of Shediac Bridge, NB passed away peacefully on February 3rd, 2021, after living for several years with Lewy Body dementia. Born in Moncton, NB in 1938, he was the son of the late J. Edgar and Nélida (McLaughlin) Surette.

He will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years Jeanne (Martin), daughters Lise (Dr. Allison Dysart) of Sackville NB, Danielle (Dan Davis) of Halifax NS and Mylène (Marco Dimuzio) of Maplewood NJ; sons Michel (Rachelle Landry) of Shediac NB, Dr. Marc (Lise Bourque), Jean (Amélie Gosselin) and Maxime (Joanna Budzyn) of Moncton; grandchildren Dr. Alexi (Tia Silver), Sophie (Eric Penney), Natalie (Vincent Guérette), Amélie (Justin Sears), Catherine, Flavie, Éloi, Félix and Henri Surette; Élyse and Massimo Dimuzio; Annie, Molly and Myriam Dysart; Eli, Rose and Lucy Davis; and great grand-children Hailey Silver, Claire and Zoë Surette.

He was predeceased by his brother Adrien and his sister Marie-Paule.

Georges attended Université de Moncton and St. Francis Xavier University, and was a graduate of the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine. He completed an internship at the Montreal General Hospital and practiced general medicine in Moncton for 4 years. He then completed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill University. He was a Radiologist at the Hôpital régional Dr-Georges-L.-Dumont for 30 years, serving as Chief of the Radiology Department for 15 years. He finished his career providing radiological services at the Stella-Maris-de-Kent Hospital. He served on numerous committees including as President of the Hôpital Dr-Georges-L.-Dumont Medical Staff, of the Moncton and District Medical Society, of the NB Association of Radiologists and of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of NB. He also played a key role in the creation of the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre. 

For Georges, being a physician was more of a calling than an occupation. He was a sports fan, loved music and visual art and particularly loved to discuss politics. Georges was a gentle kind person. Family was very important to him and he was the beloved "Pépére" to all his grandchildren.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 396 Main Street, Shediac, NB (532-3297). Given current Public Health measures, the funeral will take place at a later date. 

Special thanks are given to the staff at Pavillon Cormier at the Faubourg du Mascaret and the nursing staff at the Sackville Memorial Hospital for their compassionate care. Donations made to the food bank of your choice would be greatly appreciated during these times of need.
