It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edouard "Eddie" Lirette, 94, of Moncton, on Sunday September 10, 2023 at The Moncton Hospital. Born in MacDougall, NB, he was the son of the late Philippe and Adéline (Allain) Lirette.

Eddie worked for NB Liquor for 30 years. He was also a 3rd degree member of the Knights of Columbus (Council 6468) and former Scout Master at the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce R.C. Church.

He is survived by his four children: Roger (Linda) of Moncton, Claude (Debbie) of Riverview, Ginette Toussaint of Moncton, and Roland (Stacey) also of Moncton; seven grandchildren: Christine, Michelle, Brytney, Jeremy, Cortney, Mélanie, and Ryan; two great-grandchildren: Kohen and Grayson; as well as many nieces and nephews. Edouard was the last surviving member of his immediate family.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Dorilla (née Goguen); his siblings: Pierre, Alfred, Thérèse, and Edgar, Geneviève, and Bella all three passed away at a young age.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (506-858-1900) on Wednesday from 7 to 9 pm and Thursday from 10 am until time of departure (10:45 am).
