Pierre peacefully passed away surrounded by family after a long illness, bravely borne. He is survived by his wife, Clare (née Lewis), and children, Alexandra (Zoie Palmer), Andréa, Marie-Clare (Ian Daley), Jean-Pierre, his sister Andrée, and grandchildren Luca and Neko. Pierre was a beloved artist and entertainer, who had a long and prolific career in music and television which transcended generations. He was a rare artist who touched people with his undeniable charm, charisma and palpable energy. His career began at the age of 4, and saw him working in many media in both French and English, in Canada and the United States. He was defined by his work ethic, uncompromised integrity and strong values. Pierre was loved by many as a cultural icon and adored as father and husband, described as a true gentleman, he is remembered for his joy for life, infectious laugh and sense of humour. Pierre valued his family first and foremost, adored his golden retrievers and his time on the golf course. He dedicated a great deal of time and energy to raising money for many charitable causes. In 2011, the National Assembly awarded Pierre its medal of honour for his artistic, cultural and philanthropic contributions. Pierre will be greatly missed by his family, friends and fans. The family will receive condolences on Monday, June 27, 2016 from 1-2 p.m., followed by a funeral service at 2 p.m. for family and friends at Saint Thomas Aquinas Church in Hudson. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Parkinson Quebec (parkinsonquebec.ca).
