Ernest "Mel" Melbourne Gaudet


Ernest "Mel" Melbourne Gaudet
The passing of Ernest "Mel" Melbourne Gaudet, husband of M. Theresa (Chevarie) Gaudet of Blacks Harbour NB occurred on December 21, 2019 at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB. Born in St. Stephen NB on October 18, 1938, he was the son of the late Ernest and Helen (McLanaghan) Gaudet. A loving husband, father and grandfather, in addition to his wife Theresa, he is survived by his children: Belinda Gaudet of British Columbia, Samuel (Judy) Gaudet of Alberta and Joseph (Cindy) Gaudet and Keven Gaudet both of British Columbia; step-sons: Mark Gaudett (Kim Russell) of Beaver Harbour NB; Michael Gaudett (Raeann Kelly) and Jeff (Gail) Gaudett both of Blacks Harbour NB; one step-daughter: Melinda Gaudett of Blacks Harbour NB; grandchildren: Jess (Effy), Connor, Justin, Jordan, Laura, Tyler and Dexter; one step-granddaughter: Christy (Justin); one step-great-granddaughter: Leah; one nephew: Randy Armstrong; and many cousins. In addition to his parents, Mel was predeceased by his sister: Donna Armstrong.

Mel was a veteran having served with the Royal Canadian Air Force as a Aircraft Mechanic from 1956-1961 and then again in 1965-1987. He was very proud of his time in the service and spent many hours telling his children stories. In his younger years, Mel was a active father who made sure his children were never bored. He volunteered as a coach for their teams and he was known to have an amazing outdoor rink for all the local children to enjoy. A social man, he could strike up a conversation where ever he went. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent many hours hunting or cutting wood. He liked to play a good game of washer toss and enjoyed making washer toss sets for his family and friends. In his spare time, he could be found tending his garden, doing his yard work or dancing in the kitchen with his beloved wife Theresa. Mel was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #39 in Blacks Harbour and his love and humour will be greatly missed by his family.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. As per Mel's request there will be no visitation. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated from the Stella Maris Catholic Church, Blacks Harbour NB on Friday, December 27, 2019 at 11:00 am with Father Rolando Suplido officiating. In Mel's memory, donations to Charlotte County Cancer would be appreciated by the family.
