It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father, and son, Paul, aged 59, at the QEII Health Science Centre on August 14, 2019.

Born in Halifax, he was the son of Wallace Fougere, and Doris (Poirier) Fougere.

Paul was employed as a service technician with Sears Canada, and Coca-Cola Ltd., followed by co-ownership of RJ’s Nursery School & Kindergarten , where he and wife Norma, dedicated years to the care of children. Paul enjoyed and excelled at any project he decided to take on. Paul’s praise was always circled around the accomplishments of his son Ryan, of whom he was so proud.

Paul is survived by his wife and partner of 37 years, Norma (Pottie); Son Ryan; Mother Doris Fougere; Brother Warren (Hilda); Sisters Judy (Blair) Gilhen, Tena (Gary) Berrigan; and many nieces and nephews. Paul was predeceased by his father, Wallace Fougere; Paternal grandparents Isaac and Alvina Fougere; and Maternal grandparents Bonaventure and Leonie Poirier.

He will be sadly missed, and we pray he has connected with mentor, and loving grandfather, Pepe. A special thank you to Keith Fougere for the many visits, and long drives to and from Cape Breton to support Paul over the past few years. Also, Kevin Hearns, and Glen MacDonald for their special friendship with Paul over the years, and Catherine Shanks RN for all her moral support to Paul during his last days. Lastly, a heartfelt thank you to Dr. G. Pickett of the QEII.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday August 20th at 11:00am in Cruikshank’s Funeral Home followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Hospice Halifax (hospicehalifax.ca). To leave an online condolence please visit www.cruikshankhalifaxfuneralhome.com

So sorry to hear of Frenchies passing. I hadn't spoke to him for several years and had no idea he wasn't well. He and I grew up together through St. Stephen's and St. Pat's. Had some great times when we were younger and some great conversations as we grew older. My condolences to his family and friends.
