Wilmon Thériault, 86, of Moncton and formerly of Waltham, MA, passed away peacefully on Monday February 27, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones at his residence. Born in St-Basile, he was the son of the late Lionel and Marthe (Jalbert) Thériault.

Prior to his retirement, Wilmon was a mason by trade with an incredible work ethic who gave his time and talent to those around him. He was a kind, generous and compassionate person who always put the needs of others before his own. He loved nature and going on walks, and enjoyed having coffee with his coffee buddies. His greatest joy was spending time with family and friends and telling stories about his life adventures. He was always present and his love was a gift, and he will be truly missed and forever in our hearts.

He is survived by his wife, Claudette (Gagnon-Leahy); his daughter, Judy Thériault (Elphège Brideau) of Moncton; his son, Wayne Thériault (Kara Hallett) of Warwick, RI; three step-children: John Leahy (Brenda) of Jacksonville, FL; Tom Leahy (Ann) of Tolland, CT, and Karen Kenny (Scott) of Holbrook, MA; three grandchildren: Nicholas, Ryan, and Alexander; seven step-grandchildren: John T., Riley, John, Grace, James, Jeffrey, and Joseph; four sisters: Germaine Caron (late Guilmon) of Madawaska, ME, Hilda Morency (Claude), Thelma Courcelle (late Louis), and Rita Bouchard (late Jean-Paul), all of Edmundston; four brothers: Guy (late Noëlla), Jacques (Marie-Line), and Michel (Norma), all of St-Basile, and Hervé (Marguerite) of St-Jacques; one sister-in-law, Doreen Thériault (late Fernand) of Edmundston; one brother-in-law, Rino Picard (late Nicole) of Edmundston; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his first wife, Louiselle Hébert (2004); and two sisters: Sr Jeannine and Nicole; three brothers: Lucien, Claude (Madeleine), and Fernand.

The funeral mass will be celebrated at Saint-Basile R.C. Church, 321 Principale Street, Saint-Basile, on Saturday June 10 at 11 am. Interment will be in parish cemetery.
