Armand Gerard Baril



Armand passed away peacefully on April 14, 2017 after a brief illness. He was the loving and caring husband for 59 years of Lucie Baril (nee Dombroski), dad to Raymond (Roberta) Baril and Gianetta Baril, and grandfather to Lauren and Amanda Baril, Celia (Tyler) Lane, Jonathan, Michael and Joseph McLean, and great-grandfather to Jeremy Lane. He is survived by his sister, Sister Gilberte Baril, o.p. and a vast number of family and friends.

Armand had a celebrated career in the broadcast industry that began in the 1940s at CKUA radio and concluded after 36 years with the CBC in Toronto, Winnipeg and Edmonton. An accomplished pianist with a resonant bass-baritone voice, his passion for music also lead him to sing with various opera companies and choruses as well as to conduct and play in a wide range of musical organizations in Edmonton.

The times that brought Armand the most joy were the gatherings at the family homes and at the cabin at Pigeon Lake, as well as his travels with his beloved wife, Lucie. He will be remembered for being a true gentleman, for his sense of calm, his positive outlook, his smile, ‘that voice’, and his willingness to give in whatever way was needed. The family are grateful for the loving care provided by the staff of St. Joseph's Palliative Care Hospice and Unit 33 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Edmonton Symphony Orchestra or a charity of your choice.

In Loving Memory of
Armand Gerard Baril
