Léo Gionet

1939-2022

Léo Gionet

At the Tracadie Hospital, on Monday, July 18, 2022, at the age of 83, passed away suddenly Leo Gionet, husband of Catherine Robichaud. Born in Caraquet, on January 18, 1939, he was the son of the late Leonard Gionet and the late Anna Albert.

Beside his wife of the last 59 years, he is survived by three daughters: Natalie (Chris), Chantal (Manu) and Joanne (Mike); two grandchildren: Alisha and Liam; three brothers: Reg (Carol), Roger (Leona) and Lionel (Diane), as well as several brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces and cousins.
He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters: Marie-Estelle (late Albanie), Valmont (late Gisele), Paul (late Eveline), Julien, Gilles (Mabel), Lorenzo (Claudette), Alyre (late Lydia) and Benoit (late Rolande).

Leo and Catherine met in Montreal and married in 1963, they travelled across Canada living in various cities/towns.  Mining brought them to Sussex area and both settled happily at their home in Penobsquis.
As a father, he provided his “girls” with the self-confidence to do anything in life and encouraged them to do so.  He was a proud grandfather and loved to spend time with Alisha and Liam. Leo was devoted to his family and close friends.  He will be missed, remembered and cherished by many.
Leo lived his life with dignity, he believed in always providing a helping hand to whoever was in need.  He always gave without the expectation of receiving anything in return. 
His last days were spent enjoying family, not far from his childhood home of Caraquet.  He got to say a few goodbyes to the fortunate who were with him.
May he finally get his long deserved rest and be at peace.
The family would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to all who have helped with the care of both Catherine and Leo over the years, particularly to our devoted family-neighbors Norbert and Sarah Strang.
A private celebration of life with close friends and family will be held at a later date.
Memorial donations made to medical research - Parkinson’s, Dementia, Heart & Lung diseases would be greatly appreciated by the family.
