Garnet Alton Branscombe
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Garnet Alton
Branscombe, age 89, of Edmundston, NB. Garnet passed away peacefully
on September 5th 2018 at The Faubourg Du Mascaret, Pavillion Richard,
Shannex, Moncton NB, surrounded by his family.
Born in 1928, of Minto NB, he was the son of the late Lee and Nina
(Barton) Branscombe. Garnet moved to Edmundston at the age of one,
where he lived most of his life. He was a devoted great-grandfather,
grandfather, father, uncle, father-in-law and loving husband. He
worked at Frasers Pulp and Paper for 40 years. He was predeceased by
his siblings Arthur, Beatrice, Pearl and Ruby.
Garnet adored his wife of 68 years, Rolande (Rolly) Branscombe
(Gagnon). He was a very active person, often seen walking hand in
hand, with his beautiful wife Rolly. Garnet had many passions
including hockey, basketball, golfing, swimming, gardening, but
especially camping with his family, dancing with Rolly and
skiing—though his greatest passion was always his family.
He leaves behind his loving and devoted wife Rolande (Rolly)
Branscombe, daughter Susan and husband Gerry Connolly, daughter Donna
and husband Dean McNeill, son Gary Branscombe, son Gregg and wife
Karen Branscombe, grandchildren Jennifer Connolly, Andrew, Jeff and
Lauren McNeill and Emma Branscombe, great-grandchildren Benjamin and
Maddie Connolly Gallant.
We would like to thank the thoughtful and caring staff at the
Pavillion Richard for their love and compassion over the past year.
Donations, if desired, can be made in Garnet’s memory, to a
charity of your choice.
