It’s with the heaviest of
hearts that we announce the passing of Eric Landry on March 17, 2019
with his family by his side.
Eric was the loving
husband and best friend to Anna (nee Marchetti) and proud father to
Mireille (Chris), Patrick (Alaina), and Sarah (Will). Devoted grandpa
to Simon, Sophie, Alfie, Enzo and Nora. He was the caring son to the
late Gerard Landry and Marguerite (nee Niles) and much-loved brother
to Bernard (Lucille), Benoit (Yvonne), Leo (Pauline), Ginette, and
Leonette (Bobby). He will be dearly missed by his mother-in-law, Irma
Marchetti, whom he helped care for in recent months, as well as
in-laws Alvaro and Francine. Eric will be greatly missed by numerous
nieces, nephews and friends.
Eric was proud of
his Acadian roots – he was born in Cap-Pelé, New Brunswick,
on November 13, 1950 to a large and lively family. He went on to join
the military and it is through one of his comrades that he met the
love of his life Anna, to whom he was married for 45 good years.
Shortly after their marriage, Eric moved on to make a career in the
mining industry for nearly 40 years. In only his recent retirement, he
accompanied his wife on trail walks, enjoyed the simple pleasures of
life by making good meals and hand selecting an accompanying wine from
his collection. He loved to travel, particularly via cruise ship, play
board games, host dinner parties and spend quality time with his wife
and family. Eric was a kind, loving, dependable and generous man,
always ready care for his grandchildren and share a hearty laugh with
everyone around him. He will be forever remembered for his sense of
humour and the levity he brought to all occasions.
Mass of Christian Burial will celebrated from
Sainte-Thérèse-d’Avila Roman Catholic
Church, Cap-Pelé, on Tuesday, August
20th, 2019 at 9:30 am.
Local arrangements entrusted to
