He is survived by two brothers, Bob (Matilda) and Ernie (Helen); two sisters-in-law, Irene Coté and June Coté; brother-in-law, Tom McCann as well as many nieces and nephews. He was very close to Angie’s family and will be fondly remembered by all of them. Maurice was a Master Carpenter, and could transform a piece of lumber into a thing of beauty. He was a Journeyman Sheet Metal Mechanic and passed on his knowledge to those who had the privilege of working with him. He was a jack of all trades and was successful with most everything he tried. Maurice loved to go on hunting trips with his buddies and he loved to camp and pull out his guitar and sing around a campfire. He was a friend to all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Maurice will always be remembered for his strong presence, sense of humour, wisdom and the love that he felt for his family.
