Jacques was very close to his (2) granddaughters Savannah and Billie and one great grandchild Hazel (Bean) Leveille. Jacques leaves behind (9) sisters Jeanne d’Arc, Aline, Laurianne, Carmen, Yvette, Francine, Monique, Brigitte, and Germaine. Jacques is also survived by his (3) brothers, Pierre, Gilles & Francois.
You told us you wanted no crying so we are holding back the tears, but know our hearts are broken and will be for years and years. You showed us that you loved us, in your own way but we all knew. Know that we loved you too just because you were you. Stubborn, feisty, funny, and such a kindred heart, those who knew you would agree with whole heart. We will think of you in silence and often bring up your name. Living life without you will never be the same.
We will cherish all our memories, with which we will never part, please know that forever and always you will be in our hearts. Saying goodbye’s not easy but you left this world in peace, for you we wished no different, so now may you rest in peace.
The family wishes to thank Motayo Orekoya from the Temiskaming Hospital as well as all the staff including the staff at the Sudbury Hospital for the kindness shown to Jacques and his family during his last days.
