In Loving Memory Of
Edward Ronald Gaudet
1950 ~ 2024

With shattered hearts we announce the sudden passing of Edward “Eddie” Ronald Gaudet (73) on April 21, 2024, at his home in Cocagne, New Brunswick.

Eddie was born in Black’s Harbor, New Brunswick on July 10, 1950. He was the son of the late Charles Thomas Gaudet and Annie Beatrice (Bingham) Gaudet. He was predeceased by his brother Roger Gaudet.

Eddie will be sadly missed by his loving wife Linda Robichaud, his daughter Stacey (Tony) Robinson, his son Darren (Daisy) Gaudet, stepsons Dennis Robichaud, Christopher (Nicole) Robichaud, his 7 grandchildren Kyle, Andrew Cody, Kurtis, Hayley, Zoe, Brady, Nikita and his 2 great grandchildren: Charlie and Freya. He will also be missed by his brother Gerald (Teresita) Gaudet and many nieces and nephews.

Eddie joined the Moncton City Police force in 1973, then the Codiac Regional RCMP in 1998, where he spent his whole career serving and protecting the citizens of Greater Moncton until his retirement in 2003. You would often see him on Mounted Patrol in Centennial Park which was his favorite of all his posts.

After his retirement, he spent his days doing what he loved most, fixing cars, gardening, traveling, and playing cards with his best friend Raymond Goguen.

Eddie was always an avid animal lover. He had a huge heart for all creatures great and small, from his horses, dogs, cats to his beloved ducks that came to visit each year, all found refuge with him.

Eddie was beloved by many and will be forever missed.

  1. So sorry to hear of Eddie’s passing. Condolences to his family and friends.

  2. To Gerry: Very sorry to learn of your brother’s passing. Our sinceres condolences to you and Terri and family.

  3. To my Niece and Nephew, Stacey and Darren , we are so sorry for your loss, grieving now for your father is hard, but in time the pain will ease and all those memories hold them dear to your heart as no one can ever take them away and those beautiful memories can be cherished forever, Love Aunt Donna and Richard.

  4. Deeply felt condolences for all his family, friends and loved ones. I worked with Eddy many years ago on the Moncton Police Force. He was my partner for over a year on a 8pm. to 4am. shift. I was a rookie at the time and I looked up to Eddy with great respect. He taught me a lot about policing. He was a fantastic partner and I always felt safe with him. We also shared many many moments of laughter together and spent a lot of time after work playing cards, and practicing our shooting at an old quarry. I feel that I have lost a personal hero with news of his passing. He was indeed one of the finest police officers I have ever known.

  5. Partnered with Eddy on the 8pm – 4am shift for over a year. The best year ever! Best partner ever! Always felt totally backed up in any situation with him. Man o man could he shoot a mean game of 8 ball or snooker! His sense of humor connected spot on with mine and we spent hours laughing together. If I was asked to name one person who made the biggest and best impression upon me my Dad would have to take second place over Eddy. And that’s saying a lot. I loved him dearly.

  6. My heart is broken. Although Eddie and I never kept in contact, the time I was fortunate to spend with him during our time with the horses in Centennial Park will be cherished. Condolences to his family…

  7. Stacey, Darren and families, I know it’s a sad time, and I’m so sorry. Love and Prayers to everyone. Juanita ❤️

  8. Condolences to all Eddies family and friends!.. Eddie had such a dry sense of humour! One 12-8 shirt while checking Massy Ferguson Eddie said do you see that piece of equipment. That is one piece of equipment Massy Ferguson doesn’t stand behind. I said, why. Eddies response…..It’s a manure spreader!

  9. Linda, we are so sorry for your devastating loss. We are just a phone call away if you need us so please don’t hesitate to call. We will keep you in our prayers and are thinking of you during this most difficult time. Love and hugs dear sister friend.

  10. So sorry for your loss. We lost track of the boys years ago. We are first cousins. My mum was Uncle Charlie’s sister. When we visited them in Moncton we used to play together when kids.

  11. So sorry for your loss. We were first cousins and lost touch with them years ago. My mum and his father were brother and sister. So sad for all his family.

  12. Gerry, so sorry for your loss. Although this part of the family drifted apart, I still had you in my thoughts over the years and wished we were close enough to visit. (I’m in BC).

    I think back on some of the times and some of the pranks that got me and Eddie or Roger in trouble. And you always singing Jerimah was a bullfrog song, it brings back memories of good times.

    Take care.

  13. Eddie was a good man , and serious in his every day job as a police officer . Al around good fella . RIP brother .

  14. Grew up in the hard times had our fun school done started our lives I went on the road you started your roots in Moncton say hi mom dad Roger miss you your brother Gerry

  15. We are very saddened to hear of Eddie’s sudden passing and offer our heart felt condolences to his family.
    Eddie and I worked for years together. He was a good man and yes he had a wonderful, dry sense of humour. The story below about the manure spreader is a typical one from him, although I haven’t heard it before. I think he enjoyed laughing at his own jokes as much as we all did!

    Rest In Peace my good friend!

  16. An uncle that I had great respect for. Some of my best times of my life were with my cousins in coal branch. Thanksgiving with the whole family at the grandparents house. To Stacey,Darren and Linda you have my deepest sympathy and condolences much love.

  17. I worked with Eddie and even cut a bunch of wood back in the day when we lived in Canadian Heights in 76 always liked Eddie, we also came from the same area, I lived in Beaver Harbour community close to Blacks ,sincere condolences Dan

  18. Les membres de l’Association des retraités de Radio-Canada du N.-B., Chapître de Moncton, désirent offrir leur voeux de sympathie à toute la famille. Un don a été fait à l’Association canadienne du diabète en sa mémoire.

  19. My heart is shattered in a million pieces. As I sit here staring at his empty chair, I keep waiting for him to tell me one of his silly jokes. He always made me laugh. He might have been known as a quiet, private man with a dry sense of humor but to me he was kind, loving and caring man that would have done anything for his family and friends.
    Special thanks the first responders, the Cocagne volunteer fire dept., EMT, RCMP and the Passage funeral home for their kindness during this difficult time. Thank you for the wonderful words of comfort, the stories, the food and the donations in his memory.
    He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. To all my family and friends I couldn’t have got through this terrible time without you. Eddie, you will forever be in my heart. As you would always say when I left the house, Love You See You Later Bye. Until we meet again my loving husband. Eddie. R.I.P. Your loving wife Linda. XOXO

  20. Gerald. My deepest sympathies to you and Eddie,s family for this loss.

  21. Dear Linda & family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Eddie. I had the pleasure and honour of working with Eddie on Canada’s first ever Joint Forces Operation between Moncton PD & RCMP.
    Eddie always meant what he said and said what he meant. His laugh, smile and slightly mischievous nature lightened the tension, and pressure in what could be at times, a very serious business.
    May Eddie’s memory be a blessing.
