Jacques Robichaud, 73, of Dieppe, passed away on Thursday January 18, 2024 at The Moncton Hospital. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Gilbert and the late Anne-Marie (Cormier) Robichaud.

Jacques worked as a manager at Radio-Canada for 33 years. He obtained a B.Sc.Comm. from the Université de Moncton in 1972 and recently contributed to establishing an endowment to bestow grants on students in commerce. Jacques was also an entrepreneur who cofounded two businesses, Marco Polo Deli and Robilan, which specialized in wine importation. He served on the board of directors of Curl Moncton, supervised its expansion, and organized several championships. He was media and production director of the World Men’s Curling Championship, and he presided over the inaugural U18 Canadian Curling Championship in 2019. Jacques was an avid reader and traveller, a sports fan, and a golfer. He prepared desserts worthy of the cuisines of the greatest restaurants, but above all he was a devoted husband and a loving father.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Karen Côté-Robichaud; one daughter, Julie Doucette (Mario) of Moncton; one son, Denis (Viveca) of South Bend, Indiana; one granddaughter, Iris; nine brothers and sisters:  Jean-Maurice (Denise Hubley), Gisèle (Michel Gagné), Pierre (Solange Bourgoin), Marc, René (Lucille Wedge), Paul (Cécile Frenette), Charles (Annette Després), Lise (Paul Gaudet), and Joël; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by one brother, Guy.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (506-858-1900) where the funeral service will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 23, at 11 am.  Visiting hours are Monday, January 22, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm only.  In memory of Jacques, a contribution to the Friends of The Moncton Hospital Foundation (oncology) or the CHU Dumont Foundation (oncology) would be appreciated.
