Obituary of Eugene Henry Couture
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our father Eugene Couture. Eugene was predeceased by his loving and devoted wife of 50 years, Mary Jane, in 2013 - a loss he never did fully recover from. Also predeceased by his parents Romeo and Olide, brothers Roger, Rene, Simon and Leo, and his sister Denise. Eugene is survived by his children Michael (Rose), Sherri (Terry) and Yvonne (Larry), his grandchildren; Tyler (Lindsey), Michelle (Zach), Cameron (Mariko), Clifford (Tayler) and Shannon (Chris) and his two great-granddaughters; Haddie and Lilly. Also survived by his brothers Norbert, Tony, George and Butch, and his sisters Laurette, Lillian and Jan, and many nieces and nephews. Dad was a supervisor with Canada Post in Kelowna, BC. He took early retirement in 1999 so he could return to Merritt to be closer to his family. This gave him the opportunity to cook many family meals, which we enjoyed almost as much as he did. He was the Barbecue King. Dad took great pride in being a member of the Knights of Columbus at Sacred Heart Church. Giving back to the community gave him great satisfaction. While the last ten years, suffering with Parkinson's disease, weren't the best for Dad, he took what life threw at him and rolled with the punches. He is going to be missed terribly but we take peace in knowing that he and Mom are together once again. We would like to thank the staff at Gillis House for the exceptional care given to our Dad. Catholic Service will be held at Sacred Heart Parish in Merritt BC on March 24, 2023 at 11:00am. Inurnment and reception to follow. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at
