Obituary for Greg Perreault

Greg Perreault
After a courageous 6 year battle with cancer and with his family by his side, Greg Perreault left this world and joined his children and family in Heaven on January 18, 2018 in Winnipeg, MB.
Greg was born on September 15, 1952 in Fort Frances. Greg moved his family to Hinton, AB to work for the St. Regis Paper Mill. They spent 7 years there until they returned home in 1984 to Fort Frances and then made their forever home when they moved to Couchiching First Nation in 1990 to the house he built for his family.
Greg loved travelling with his sons for baseball tournaments on weekends. He also played for the Couchiching Raiders fastball team, and also had a great time playing with the Witherspoon Whips. Greg also made time to play slow-pitch with his family, and lovingly named the team “The Bad News Bears.”
Greg spent many, many, many hours on Wellar Lake with his sons, grandchildren, nephews, brothers-in-law and other family members. Later in life Greg took the time to travel and explore many places with his wife and boys, and then after they grew up, Greg took his grandchildren with him on many adventures.
Greg is survived by his wife Pauline; daughter-in-law Lonnie (Mike Schmidt); grandchildren Mason, Alexis and Timothy, and Sara DeGagne (great-granddaughter Sophie). He is also survived by his sisters Annabelle and Genevieve (Glenn Jourdain); sisters-in-law Judy Perreault, Sharon (Murray Strachan), Laura (David Bruyere), Mary-Lou (Terry Parks), Holly Bruyere and Cory Fedun; brothers-in-law Guy Bruyere, Kevin Bruyere, Russell Bruyere and Delray (Cindy) Bruyere, and all his special nieces and nephews. Greg was predeceased by his two wonderful sons, Nathan and Tim; his parents George and Terese; brothers Doug and Dennis (Spig); brothers-in-law Russell Jourdain and Glen Bruyere; sisters-in-law Alice Bruyere and Tina Wilson; special niece Katie Jourdain and special nephew Grant Perreault.
A celebration of Greg’s life will take place on Thursday, January 25th at 2 p.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Church with Father Alan Albao officiating. As per Greg’s wishes cremation will take place. A time of fellowship will be held after the service downstairs in the Deacon Elmer Mainville Hall. All are welcome.
The pallbearers will be Nathan Bruyere, Shawn Jourdain, Shane Jourdain, Doug Perreault, Craig Miller and Darren Foster. The honourary pallbearers will be Curtis Jourdain, Gilbert (Tons) Perreault, Glenn Jourdain, Murray Strachan, David Bruyere, Robert (Porky) Perreault, Jeff (Botto) Bruyere, Guy Bruyere, John Walton and Brian Perrault.
