In Loving Memory Of
Enoϊl Guy “Noёl” Cormier
December 26, 2021

Enoϊl Guy “Noёl” Cormier, 86, of Villa Providence in Shediac and formerly of Amirault Street in Dieppe, passed away peacefully at his residence on Sunday, December 26, 2021, after a lengthy illness.

Born in Dieppe (St-Anselme), on July 23, 1935, he was the youngest son of the late Edouard and the late Alberta Cormier (LeBlanc).

Noёl was a Locomotive Engineer and retired in 1993 from CN and Via Rail with 37 years of service. He was one of the lucky people who could do a job he loved and the excitement of being at the controls of those engines never wore off. He was also a plasterer and bricklayer by trade. He was an avid walker and before his long struggle with Alzheimer’s he was a familiar sight in the morning on Amirault Street along the Chartersville Marsh. He was well known in the Dieppe community and had been very involved in local hockey clubs in his youth. Noёl loved spending summers at their cottage in the Bluff, going to the beach with his wife Pat, bicycling to Shediac and Pointe-du-Chêne wharf and spending time in his vegetable garden. Every spring, on a sunny May day, he and his good friend and neighbor Oscar Gaudet, would prepare their gardens together for a new season. It was always an enjoyable time of lively conversation and friendly competition.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Patricia “Pat” Whalen (Cormier) of Shediac; his stepson, Chief Warrant Officer John Fougère (Retired) and his wife Debra Belisle of Cold Lake, AB; his two granddaughters: Tanya Fata (Fiore “JR”) and Jennifer Fougère (Mark Mutch) and four great grandchildren: Micheal, Mystyn, Ayanna and Calysta all of St. Albert, AB. He is also survived by a brother: Rhéal Cormier (Nora) of Moncton.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by a sister: Noёlline Gallant and a brother: Roland Cormier.

I would like to say how much I appreciate the care and compassion shown to Noёl by the staff and volunteers at Villa Providence during his 4 years stay. I am truly grateful for your dedication.

According to his wishes there will be no visitation or funeral service.

Rest in Peace Noёl, your long journey is over.

If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I have walked in the same shoes as you are doing today. Time heals everything!

  9. I am so sorry for your loss Pat. My deepest sympathies. He was one of my favorite resident. I enjoyed to tease him and hear him laugh.

  10. On t’offre nos sympathies les plus sincères Pat et à ta famille. C’est certain qu’il va illuminé quelqu’un en haut comme il la fait parmi nous. When we think of Enoil, it is with a smile and we won’t forget his infectious laugh. Big hug to you, Bernice & Léo

  11. Mes sincères condoléances à toi et à toute ta famille Patricia, quelle journée de tristesse pour Gisèle et moi, j’aimerais reculé dans le temps pour ne pas avoir à vivre cet instant, pour moi Noel ( pas enoel, pas Guy. juste Noel ) a été notre ami de plage pour plusieurs années et je ne peux pas oublier les moments de bonheurs que vous nous avez procurés Noel et toi . ( anecdote ) Je me rappelle le jour ou j’étais assis seul sur la plage et que je ne vous connaissais pas encore, Noel s’approchas de moi et m’a invité a venir s’asseoir avec vous-autres et faire connaissance, ça été le moment magique par ce que ça été le moment déclencheur d’une amitié durable que je n’oublierai jamais, c’est pour ça que je te dis que cet instant est magique.

  12. Mes sympathies Pat he was a great man I love walking and talking with him he was a lots of fun to be with

  13. I worked with Christmas for many years, he was fun to have around, never a dull moment…..very sad to hear of his passing.

  14. Hi Pat,

    My condolences Pat to you and your family. I was very much shocked when I heard, as his passing happened so fast. If ever you can’t sleep, and need to talk about anything, call me anytime, day or night.

    Friends always as you know, and even related through Noel, so anytime you need me, I am here for you.

  15. There has been an absence at the beach for a few years now. It has felt different without the constant chatter and laughter of a good circle of friends. Noel should have been listed as a Parlée Beach tourist attraction as he made everyone’s experience better.
    We’ve missed him, and will continue to miss him.
    Take care Pat.

  16. I will miss Noel.On my way home I would stop to have a “few” words with him, although it was difficult to have just a “few” words with him, if you know what I mean Pat!.

    I met him in Florida and at work, whatever corner he was in was certainly not the “quite corner.

    He enjoyed people as much as people enjoyed him.

    My deepest sympathies Pat.

  17. We were very sad to hear of Noel’s passing. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.

  18. Dearest Pat,
    “Le Pere Noel” will be truly missed by all who were blessed by his humor, smile and gregarious laugh.
    Most sincere condolences to you and your family.
