Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Maurice Picard



With sorrow in our hearts, we announce the passing of our father, Maurice “Moe” Picard on September 15, 2012 at the age of 87 years.

Born in Edmonton, Maurice‘s early years were spent with the Canadian Air Force. After WWII, he worked as a Power Engineer with Canadian Linen. His career required relocating his large family to various locations across Canada, eventually culminating his career as Director General of Euroblan, Belgium. Maurice loved his golf and was President of the Country Club of Montreal. He retired to Vancouver and in 2010 returned to Edmonton to be closer to family.

His greatest achievement was his children - Wayne, Janice (D'Arcy), Gerald (Hanna), Michelle, Cheryl-Ann (Prestall), Leonard (Celia) and Lucy. Marc and Eric Bachand were also like sons to him. Maurice also leaves behind brothers, Wilfred (Lucille) and Robert (Greta); sister, Therese; ten grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

We will miss you Dad.

A Visitation will be held at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011-114 Street, Edmonton, on September 20, 2012 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 9830-148 Street, Edmonton on Friday, September 21, 2012 at 11:00 am with Reverend Jozef Wroblewski officiating.

The family wishes to thank medical staff at the Grey Nuns Hospital for their care and attention. In lieu of flower, donations may be sent to the Vitality Program of Eldercare Edmonton (www.canadahelps.org).

In Loving Memory of
Maurice Picard
