I have just now learned of Joe's passing. My heartfelt sympathies to his immediate family. An RCMP colleague (and good friend from years ago in Richibucto/St-Ignace) I will always remember Joe's smile and good nature. To all of his siblings, who I fondly remember, my very best of good wishes.

Dear Cathy, (and family)

We are so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. Carole and I wish to express our most sincere sympathies to you and the family during this difficult period.

As my ''recruit field trainer'' Joe had a major influence on my RCMP career. He guided me throughout those few years at my first detachment in Woodstock and I have fond memories of the times we spent together patrolling. I must admit, he was the only member who really scared me when he drove at high speeds to attend urgent calls. He was a great driver but yes, he loved high speed driving in those early days.

And I clearly remember you Cathy, and your kind generosity. You often invited me over for lunch during our shift knowing I was single and perhaps lonely those first few months at my first posting.

We truly regret not reaching out to both of you throughout the years. We were unaware that you had settled in Pembroke which is so close to Ottawa where Carole and I have been since 1988.

Joe will be greatly missed ... Carole and I are both saddened by his death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

With sincere sympathy,

Pierre & Carole (LeBlanc)
Ottawa ON

Very sorry to hear of the passing of Joe. Although I haven't seen him in many years I have fond memories of working with Joe in Woodstock, NB when we were both stationed there with the RCMP. Unfortunately, as time passes contact with old colleagues is lost and I was unaware that he lived in nearby Pembroke.

We, Florent’s brother and sisters miss him like crazy, that is when we are not in denial that he is no longer with us. He added so much kindness, support and humor to our lives from childhood to February 11th 2020. We did not see him as often as we would’ve loved to; but it was only fair that he live close to Cathy’s family, his son & daughter-in-law and especially close to his grandchildren. We also know that he and Cathy did not see their daughter, Beth, as often as they would’ve loved to (present tense for Cathy); but again, circumstances of life are sometimes difficult to change. He talked to us about Mackenzie and Tyler during every telephone conversation & every visit. He once said to one of my sisters: “Grandchildren fill the void that you did not know you had.” (Les petits-enfants remplissent le vide que tu ne savais pas que tu avais.) My heart breaks as I quote him because there were so MANY other things he wanted to share with them. My only consolation is that he is watching over them and all of his loved ones from beyond. In Ontario, he is known as Joe; at home (en Acadie), we always called him Florent. He was our DEAR brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin; and he left us beautiful memories. We have had a flood of messages filled with love from people who grew up with him and/or shared certain periods of his life. We will certainly get more this weekend as his obituary will appear in l’Acadie Nouvelle and on the Hommage NB Web site.
Nous t’aimons, cher Florent, du plus profond de nos coeurs.
