Roger Jolicoeur, beloved husband of Jeannine for 59 years, passed away to be with his Lord on Saturday, February 29, 2020, at the age of 82 years. He leaves behind his children: Diane of Kelowna, BC, J.P. (Sharon) of Abbotsford, BC, Jacqueline (Keith) Poss of Red Deer, AB, and Colette (Peter) Martin of Kelowna, BC; his grandchildren Adam (Danielle), Nicholas, Patrick, Analise (Mirza), Devin, and Brennan; his great-granddaughter, Ivy, and another great-grand baby on the way. As well as his sisters Lucienne (Ephrem), Marie (Roger) and Suzanne (Roland) and his brothers Raymond and Maurice (Delores), he is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, his extended family, and many dear friends. He was sadly predeceased by his brother Eloi, sister Angèle, sister-in-law Claire, brother-in-law Michel, and his parents Emile and Flore.
