Obituaries for the children:

J. Emile Pitre:  Elhatton’s Funeral Home (Bathurst, NB):  It is with great sadness that we announce the death of J. Emile Pitre at the age of 91 which occurred on August 2, 2010 at the Robert L. Knowles Veterans Unit.  Born in Bathurst, he was the son of John and Eugenie (Leger) Pitre.  He was predeceased by his wife, Hermina, and his two sons Fred and Adrian; his brothers, Eric, Edgar and Robert; his sisters, Anita (Jack France), Irene, Elise (Martin Hachey).  He is survived by one sister Jeannine (Leonce Gaudet) of Cornwall and 3 grandchildren Amanda (Bob Bonneau) of Toronto, Andrew of Boston, Allison of Montreal and two beautiful great grandchildren, Lauren and Benjamin.  Many nieces and nephews.  Emile was an avid hockey player and played until the age of 85 when he played against the Flying Fathers.  He played Center on the teams and won 4 Maritime Championships with the Bathurst Papermakers.  He is in the Sports Hall of fame as a team member and as an individual member.  He was an avid tennis and table tennis player and continued to play way beyond his 80’s.  Emile was an employee of Consolidated Bathurst Inc for over 31 years.  He was a member of the Herman J. Good V. C. Branch No.18 Royal Canadian Legion.  To call Emile Pitre one of the finest citizen of Bathurst is no exaggeration.  His contributions to the City are numerous: The Fred Pitre Memorial Skateboard Park, Coronation Park, S.P.C.A., the Legion, the Heritage Museum, scholarships to students at BHS and ESN, and special students at the University level who needed his help.  He loved Bathurst and was so proud to be living in this wonderful, beautiful City.  He became Freeman of the City of Bathurst 3 years ago.  He will be surely missed by everyone who got to know this sweet, gentle man who was a great lover of the City of Bathurst.  The family wish to invite you to the graveside Ceremony for Emile and his wife Hermina Pitre on Thursday (August 26, 2010) at 1 p.m. from the Sacred Heart Cemetery with Father Gregory Culligan officiating and the Legionnaires will do their ceremony in respect to their fallen soldier of WWII.  There will be a reception to follow with family, friends and staff at the Robert L. Knowles Veterans Unit, 795 Champlain St., Bathurst.  Arrangements are in the care of Elhatton’s Funeral Home, Bathurst.  Donations will be accepted for the Robert L Knowles Veteran’s Unit or the S.P.C.A. Bathurst Branch.  (photo included)
