In Loving Memory Of
Donald Babineau
1949 ~ 2023

Saint-Antoine, NB – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Donald Babineau, 74, at the Moncton Hospital, on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2023.

Born in Saint-Damien, he was the son of the late Ernest and the late Marguerite Babineau (Hébert).

Donald will be sadly missed by his sisters: Rose-Marie (Harvey) LeBlanc of Moncton, and Claudette (Paul) LeBlanc of Irishtown; his brothers: Charles Babineau of Moncton, and Claude (Charlene) Babineau of Notre-Dame; his nieces and nephews: Janelle, Julien (Julie), Josh (Michelle), Marc, and Stephane; as well as his special friend, Rina Dupuis.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Linda Mai Saulnier.

Donald worked as a truck driver for Midland Transport most of his life until he retired. He was the kind of man who never bothered anyone and was well-liked by many. Donald loved listening to Bluegrass music and was a big advocate for the Moncton Wildcats hockey team.

In respect to Donald’s wishes, there will be no visitation and no funeral service.
