Commissioner R.C.M.P. (Ret'd) NADON, Maurice J. Peacefully on December 21, 2009 with his family at his side. Beloved husband of the late Madeleine Desrosiers, Loved Father of Suzanne Nadon (Rick Metcalfe) and Bob Nadon (Kerry Lee), Grandchildren Jeremy Shield (Alexandra), Michael Cianci (Helene), Julia Cianci (Steve), Dennis Nadon (Alicia), Jonathan Cianci (Kathleen), Tanya Nadon, Rebekah Walker (Jim), Andy Metcalfe (Ashley-Rose), Dave Metcalfe, and great grandson Raiden Walker. Brother of Madeleine Belec (Maurice), and Lilian Marion (late Maurice) and Gary Nadon (Maureen). Fondly remembered by many nephews and nieces. Godfather to Claire Nadon of Montreal, QC. Born in Mattawa and honoured in their museum, Maurice J Nadon was the 16th Commissioner of the R.C.M.P. He enlisted on January 3rd, 1941. He became an officer in 1958, serving in Vancouver, Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, Toronto and finally at Head Quarters Ottawa, where he became Commissioner in 1974. He cherished foremost his years in Criminal Investigations calling them the best years of his life in the Force. He was always a favorite among all ranks, a truly gentle, strong, humble and powerful leader, championing education for all policing, and opening the new Canadian Police College in 1976. The RCMP was his second family, and through his 32 years of retirement he kept in regular contact, attending many mess dinners at the Officer's, NCO's and Constable Messes. In retirement he lived his dream of building a log cottage at Whisky Bay where he spent his summers with his family and friends. He is thankful to all staff at the Riverview Heights Residence in Pembroke for their care, excellent facilities and good humour in the last year of his life. Visitation will be at the Beechwood Cemetery at 280 Beechwood Avenue on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009 from 7-9 p.m. and on Wednesday 23rd from 9-11 a.m. followed by a service in the Beechwood Sacred Space at 2 p.m. Reception to follow.
