POIRIER, Jean Guy "John"
On November 8, 2012 John Poirier passed away surrounded by his family at the age of 78 years. He will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by his son Gerry, daughter Debbie (Jeff) Lockwood, daughter Donna, and also by his grandchildren Ryan (Danielle Chalifoux) Berg, Jenna Berg, Sarah, John, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Also mourning his loss, are sisters Lise (Denis) Pion of St. Charles Borromee, Que and Simonne Boisvert of St. Lambert, Que, and his many friends. He was predeceased by his loving partner Mary Kleparchuk, brothers Roger, Marcel, Real, Rene, sisters Rita, and Merilda.
John will always be remembered for his generosity, sense of humour, and his uncanny ability to "MacGyver" almost anything. He loved to spend time with family going on ski weekends and camping trips. He enjoyed working in his garage, and helping out family, friends, and neighbours with their projects. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Special thanks to the staff in ICU 3C4 at the U of A Hospital for their special care and attention.
A Memorial Service will take place at 7:00 p.m., November 14, 2012 at Evergreen Funeral Chapel, 16204 Fort Road, Edmonton. In lieu of flowers John asked that donations be made to the Alberta Lung Association, P.O. Box 4700 STN S, Edmonton, AB T6E 9Z9 or the Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Avenue, Edmonton, AB T6G 9Z9.
