Obituary

Maurice passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on February 24, 2019 at the age of 81 years.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 61 years, Colleen (nee LeBlanc); children: Wendy (Rick) Henders, Bradley, Michael (Teresa Tansey) and Monique (Marc) Malo; grandchildren: Richard Henders, Chris Henders (Andrea), Stefanie Murtha (Randy), Jennifer Smith, Corey (Leigh-Anne), Helene, Bradley Jr., Kathleen, Joshua, Jessica, Noah, Sarah Robb and Jordan Malo; great grandchildren: Elliot and Grace Henders, Wesley and Grayson Murtha, Sloan and Brae Smith, Alaska, Margaux, Emily and Liam Robb; siblings: Olive Vest, Gene (Blanche) and Joseph as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Maurice was predeceased by his parents, Hector and Julma; siblings: Estelle, Rita Prefontaine, Romeo and Fern.

Maurice had a 50 year career in the oilfield services sector. He started his career as a driller on a drilling rig which led him to live in many small towns in Alberta and Saskatchewan. He then owned his own trucking business and eventually was a partner with a service rig company. His last fifteen years before retirement at age 67 years, he was the sales manager for a service rig company. Maurice was adored and had many friends in the oilfield.

Maurice enjoyed carpentry work, travelling in his most loved motorhome, including wintering in Arizona and California in his retirement years. He is so known for his playing guitar and singing with his family. Country music and Elvis were his favorites. His music has made us dance, has made us sing together, and has brought us closer as friends and family. Maurice loved his family and will be missed for his big presence in life, his laughter, judgment-free guy who always went out of his way to make the people he was with feel so loved.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, March 11, 2019 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 18407 60 Avenue, Edmonton, AB.

The family expresses heartfelt thanks to the staff at Grey Nuns Hospital Palliative ward for their compassion and care.

Those who so choose may make donations in memory of Maurice to the Covenant Foundation, Room 3C60, 11111 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB., T5K 0L4 or via their website: https://www.covenantfoundation.ca/donate-today.

In Loving Memory of
Maurice Gibeau
