Gerald Joseph Bourque Sr.
The passing of Gerald Joseph Bourque Sr., husband of the late Stella Marie (Leger) Bourque, formerly of St. George NB, occurred at the Passamaquoddy Lodge, St. Andrews NB on August 2, 2019. Born in Moncton NB on May 29, 1933, he was a son of the late Rosaire and Lina (LeBlanc) Bourque. A loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother, Gerald is survived by one son: Gerald Jr. (Lisa) Bourque of Utopia NB; four daughters: Ginette Bourque (Terry Barry) of St. George NB, Giselle (Terry) Swanston of Pennfield NB, Julie Bourque (Stacy Guitard) of Canal NB and Carol (Steven) Frost of Beaver Harbour NB; grandchildren: Brodie (Christine) Bourque, Amanda (Keith) Leslie, Michelle Deveau, Tiffany Deveau, Vanessa Taylor, Tamara Taylor, Cassidy Frost and Allie Frost; great-grandchildren: Lincoln Leslie, Hayden Gayton, Holden Leslie, Morgan, Cameron, Lucas and Charlie Bourque; brothers: Alderic (Isabelle) Bourque, Leo-Paul (Gertrude) Bourque, Bernard Bourque and Andrew Bourque; sisters: Florida (Roger) Breau, Suzanne (Leopold) Bourgeois, Yvette Theriault (Fern), Stella Bonello (Tony) and Albertine (Michael) Johnson; several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents and wife, Gerald was predeceased by three brothers: Donald, George and Real Bourque; one sister: Mae Cox.

Prior to retirement, Gerald worked with St. George Pulp and Paper for many years. In his teens, Gerald served his country and enrolled with the Royal Canadian Army. He was enlisted from 1948-1956 and was once stationed in Germany. An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting and fishing and enjoyed getting out in his kayak. Though he will be missed greatly by his family, we know he is right where he wants to be, back beside his beloved wife, Stella.
