It is with profound sadness that the family of Lester Losier announces his passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital, June 11th, surrounded by his family. Born in Loggieville, NB, April 30, 1931, a son of the late Joseph and Laura Losier.
Dad moved to St. Stephen with his family when he was five. Dad had many jobs throughout his career – Ganong’s, Nickel Mine, Boat Building, Flakeboard, Tuna Plant, working in Ontario and then he started working towards his pipefitting license. This trade took him to many job sites and shutdowns all over NB. He made many friends and connections throughout his pipefitting career.
Dad enjoyed his working career but equally enjoyed his 25 years of retirement. He liked to keep busy, but his main passion was fishing, followed by hunting and gardening. Dad had a Christmas tree woodlot that kept him busy for many years also. It was only in the last three years when dad’s health started to deteriorate that he had to cut back on these activities.
Lester is survived by his companion, Lois Puig; his daughters, Jeanette (Daryel), Patsy (Bill), Nancy (Mark); his son, Robert (Brenda); six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and three great-great granddaughters. Also survived by his sisters, Beatrice, Christina, Mary and brother, George, along with many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his sons, Gary (1980), David (2017) and his grandson, Tony (2001). A funeral service will be held at the St. Stephen’s Roman Catholic Church, Milltown Blvd., St. Stephen, NB, on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 11 a.m., followed by a reception at the St. Patrick’s Hall. There will be no visitation held.
For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Milltown Catholic Cemetery Fund or to a charity of one’s choice.
