Robert Mercure passed away on July 7, 2020, surrounded by his loving family, at the age of 63 years old. He was living in Moncton. Born in Baie-Ste-Anne on January 11, 1957, he was the son of Arilda Manuel and late Odilon Mercure.
Besides his partner, Jeannette, Robert leaves to mourn two sons, Mathieu (Britney) and Mario; two step-sons: Alex et Nicholas; three grandsons that he loved deeply, Osias, Oscar and Octave; six brothers, Ovila, Gérard (Lynn), Rosaire (Kathleen), Roger, Paul (Kim) and Marcel (Beverly); five sisters, Noëlla (Doug), Jacqueline (François), Ernestine (Louis), Antoinette (Claude) and Elisa (Sylvain); several nieces and nephews, Tammy (Bryan), Andy (Christine), Carole (Marco), Marie-Josée (Luc), Daniel (Kelsey), Mélanie (Julien), Pierre (Matt), Gaston (AJ), Samuel (Frédérique), Chase (Jade) et Sébastien; several aunts, uncles, cousins, great-nephews and great-nieces.
He was predeceased by his father, late Odilon, and his goddaughter , late Colette (Stéphane).
Robert was a very proud dad, dedicated and patient. His greatest pride was his sons and grandchildren(his « pitous »), who loved their Grandpa Mercure. Robert was a hard working man who was well respected by his colleagues. He was a courageous man, helpful, determined and faithful. He had a solitary side and a sensitive and sweet side. He loved nature, gardening, hunting, singing and playing his guitar. We remember all the happiness that he gave us when he was singing at holidays and family gatherings. He always had a great joie de vivre. His greatest passion remained his family and his partner Jeannette, with who he spent his lastest years enjoying the pleasures of life . We will always remember Robert being a big-hearted man with an endless love for others. Thank you for teaching us these great values and being part of our lives. We will see you again one day.
