It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of René Cormier, 91, on Monday June 6, 2022, surrounded by his loving wife, following a short illness. Born May 1st, 1931, in Barachois, he was the son of the late Willie and Anna (Landry) Cormier. 

Prior to his retirement, René was a carpenter. He loved the outdoors, hunting, gardening, and he was an avid card player. 

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Murielle (Landry) of Robichaud; his four children: Roland Cormier (Joan) of Barachois, Colette Landry (Pierre) of Cap-Pele, Monique Livingston (Allen) of Fredericton and Jacqueline Cormier of Moncton; five-grandchildren: Denis, Sylvie, Stéphane (Carolane), Natalie (David), and Patrick (Celina); one step-grandchild, Chad Livingston (Andrea); five great-grandchildren: Kristina, Gabriel, Amelia, Leah, and Emma; three step-great-grandchildren: Connor, Markus and Aliyah. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law: Bernice (late Adrien) Desjardins, Florine (late Raymond) Landry, Victorine (late Antoine) Landry, Alfreda (late Alfred) Landry, and Imelda (late Clorice) Landry; brothers-in-law: Merville (late Marguerite) Landry and Jean-Guy (Emma) Landry, as well as many nieces and nephews. 

In addition to his parents, René was predeceased by an infant son (1961); his three sisters: Rita (late Léonide) Gautreau, Florine (late Edouard) Boudreau and Alice (late Ulysse) Cormier; five brothers: Albert (late Irène) Cormier, Gérald (late Malthide) Cormier, Hector (late Odélia) Cormier, Ola (late Eliza) Cormier, and Paul-Emile (late Laurette) Cormier; sister-in-law, Thérèse Landry; and brother-in-law, Gérald (Antoinette) Landry. 

We would like to thank the surgeon Dr. Jocelyne Hébert as well as the nurses and doctors of the 4C unit of the CHU Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont.
