Maurice Bessette

Passed on: January 8th, 2017

Maurice ‘Moe’ Bessette of Canwood passed away peacefully on January 8th, 2017 at the age of 83. He is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Shirley, and children Dionne (Ken) Scott, Lynne (Wayne) Henry, and Tim (Jillian) Bessette; grandchildren Julie (Craig) Gray, Nicole Scott, Colton (Caitlin) Henry, Justin (Rachel Hawkeswood) Henry, Branden Henry, and Courtney Henry; and great-grandchildren Isabelle Gray, Amelia Henry and Liam Hawkeswood. Maurice spent his childhood in St. Benedict, raised his family and spent most of his life in Prince Albert, and lived in Canwood for the last few years. He spent 45 years dedicated to a job he was well-known and respected for, but he also had a number of varied interests and experiences throughout his life. He was a dedicated sports fan, playing, supporting, and avidly watching many of his favourites, including curling, baseball, and hockey. He loved the great outdoors and anything to do with nature, happily spending his time hunting, fishing and camping. Above all else, though, he was a devoted family man and loved nothing more than spending that precious outdoor time with his wife, children and grandchildren; his family was his greatest source of pride and joy. He was a loyal, gentle and humble man whose dry sense of humour and solid presence will be missed by all who knew and loved him. A private family service will be held.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Eleanor Person of Eternal Memories Funeral Service & Crematorium, Canwood, Sask.
