May5, 1939 - January 17, 2014
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Armand Pinel. He was predeceased by his parents Olivier and Bibianne (nee Demontigny) Pinel. He is survived by Helene (nee Gorin of St. Brieux), his loving wife of 53 years, 7 children; Claudette (Mark), Claude (Holly), Gizelle, Gilles (Lloanne), Lianne (Colin), Adele and Armand (Leanne), 21 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren!
Armand was born in Bracken, SK, May 5th, 1939 and grew up on a farm in Val Marie, SK. He enjoyed life and his many interests but what he held closest to his heart was his faith, his wife and his family.
Armand's strong desire to live and practice healthy lifestyles led him to survive 14 years of cancer. He appreciated every day that he could spend with his loved ones. He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his family, many friends and co-workers.
The funeral will be held on January 25th at 1:00 p.m. at St. Brieux Parish, 204 Barbier Dr., St. Brieux, Sk.
Prayers will be held January 24th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Martyrs Canadiens, 1007 Windsor St., Saskatoon, SK.
