Omer Donald Robichaud, 82, formerly of Barachois, passed away peacefully on Sunday November 7, 2021 at the Faubourg du Mascaret in Moncton. His beloved wife of 56 years, Régina Robichaud (Babineau) was at his bedside.

Besides his wife, left to grieve him are his two sons: Guy Robichaud (Chantal Matar) and Jules Robichaud (Nadia Korol); and his grandchildren: Samuel, Raphaël, Nicolas, Nina, and Elisabeth. The youngest son of Adolphe Robichaud and Aline (Melanson), he is also survived by his brother, Normand, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

He was predeceased by his brothers: Robert, Gérard, Charles, Henri, Louis, Alonzo, Rodolphe, Edgar, Alfred, Alphé, and Donald, as well as his sisters: Emilie (Belliveau), Laura (Leblanc), Maria (Archambault), and Anita (Landry).

Omer was the former Dean at the Faculty of Education at the Université de Moncton. He completed his doctoral studies at the University of Minnesota and was involved in numerous professional organizations throughout his career including serving as the President of the national board of Council of Exceptional Children.

To his students and colleagues, he was known as Dr. Omer Robichaud or Professor Robichaud, but to his grandchildren, he was Grand Papa or Jedo. Always calm and thoughtful, always considerate and kind, he was a teacher, mentor, and friend to all.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 396 Main Street, Shediac (532-3297) Wednesday from 12:30 pm until time of departure (2:40).

Face covering is mandatory, and proof of vaccination and government issued identification card are required to enter the funeral centre and the church. The funeral mass will be videotaped, and the video will be available on his obituary on our Website at the end of the day. Interment will be in Grand-Barachois. In memory of Omer, a contribution to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.
