In Loving Memory Of
Jean-Paul Thériault
1929 ~ 2024

It is with deep sadness that the family of Paul (J.P.) Thériault announces his passing at Faubourg du Mascaret, Moncton, on Friday, February 2, 2024, at the age of 94 surrounded by members of his immediate family.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Jeannita, (after 60 years of marriage) as well as his three sons: Louis (Chantal) – Dieppe; Marc and Stéfan – Moncton; and his daughter Marie-Jo (Olivier) and grandchildren: Alexis (Ariane)-Rimouski; Camille (Karine) and little Lévi -Montreal; Sumira (Jacques) -London; Jamuna -Moncton. He is also survived by his sister, Claudia (late Bob Whalen) – Fredericton.

His role as husband, father and grandfather was paramount throughout his career and long life. A man of letters, sought-after lecturer, excellent tenor, man of discussion, avid reader. Paul worked for many years as Crown Prosecutor for the government of New Brunswick (Shédiac and Moncton). He had a remarkable gift and sensitivity for defending vulnerable people in court through well-researched and solid arguments, while having a deep respect for the practice of law in general.

Paul was always happy to encourage the dreams and projects of his four children, as well as those of his wife, Jeannita.

Paul was also an exemplary husband who knew how to express his love for those he met.

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, for whom “Uncle Paul” was a special and respected friend, as well as an uncle who was always present and happy to welcome them into his home.

Visitations at the Passage-Chartersville Funeral Home, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe, NB E1A 1G1, will be held from Wednesday, February 7, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Sainte-Thérèse Church, Dieppe, on Thursday, February 8, at 11 a.m. A reception will follow the funeral at Passage Funeral Home on Amirault Street.
