Death Notice

GROULX, Alcide Joseph

It is with great sadness that the Groulx family announces the passing of Alcide on July 8, 2021 at Algonquin Nursing Home, Mattawa.  He was born on November 24, 1925 to the late Emile and Lydia (Degagné).  Predeceased by his loving wife Pauline (Gauthier), his son Denis (Marie-Claire) and his daughter Juliette (Michael).  He will be deeply missed by his children Pierrette (late Denis), Rémi (late Christine), Gilles (Paulette), Camille (Carmen), Michel (Murielle), Raymonde (Denis), Emilien (Réjeanne), Emilienne (Barrie), Diane (Wade), Alcide Jr (Roxanne), and by his surviving brother Raymond (Elise), sisters Marie Rheault (late Laurent) and Jacqueline Trudel (Alfred), and sister-in-law Jacqueline (Wayne). He and Mom worked the family farm purchased from his father and later he was employed repairing farm machinery. In 1969, he started his own repair shop and a few years later a dealership selling farm equipment.  Both the farm and the dealership/repair shop were passed on to two of his sons. His pride and joy were his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dad loved talking about the farm and on occasion he would recount stories of his childhood.  Always ready to lend a helping hand, he taught us that hard work yields success.  Alcide will be remembered for his strength and determination. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no viewing. The funeral Mass will be for immediate family only, but will be live-streamed (visit ourabcparishes.com for the link), on Friday, July 16, 2021 at 2:00 pm.  Interment will follow at St. Thomas d’Aquin Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Algonquin Nursing Home, 207 Turcotte Park Road, Mattawa, Ontario P0H 1V0, would be greatly appreciated.

C’est avec tristesse que la famille de Alcide Groulx vous fait part de son décès survenu le 8 juillet 2021 au Algonquin Nursing Home, Mattawa.  Fils de feu Emile et de feu Lydia (Degagné), Alcide est né le 24 novembre, 1925.  Il laisse dans le deuil ses enfants Pierrette (feu Denis), Rémi (feu Christine), Gilles (Paulette), Camille (Carmen), Michel (Murielle), Raymonde (Denis), Emilien (Réjeanne), Emilienne (Barrie), Diane (Wade), Alcide Jr (Roxanne); ses nombreux petits-enfants et arrières petits-enfants.; ainsi son frère Raymond (Elise), ses soeurs Marie Rheault (Laurent) et Jacqueline Trudel (Alfred) et sa belle-soeur Jacqueline (Wayne).  Il rejoint dans l’éternité son épouse Pauline (née Gauthier), son fils Denis (Marie-Claire), et sa fille Juliette (Michael). Il travailla la ferme familiale pendant plusieurs années.  Doué à la mécanique, il s’embauchât à la réparation de machines agricoles.  Quelques années plus tard, il s’établit à son propre compte et devint concessionnaire de machines agricoles.  Alcide adorait parler de ses petits-enfants et arrières petits-enfants ainsi que de la ferme.  Parfois, il était ouvert à parler de son enfance.  Homme généreux, il était toujours prêt à donner un coup de main.  En tant que patriarche, il nous a appris que c’est en travaillant fort que l’on réussit. Observant les règlements selon la COVID-19, qui limite le nombre de personnes, il n’y aura pas de visites au salon funéraire.  Les obsèques auront lieu le vendredi 16 juillet, 2021 à 14 :00 heures pour la famille immédiate seulement.  Cependant, il sera possible d’écouter en direct la cérémonie à l’église au site ourabcparishes.com, cliquer sur “Mass” (Youtube, Facebook).  Vos témoignages de condoléances peuvent se traduire par un don au Algonquin Nursing Home, 207 Turcotte Park Road, Mattawa, ON   P0H 1V0.
