ROY, Armand


February 27, 1930 – May 19, 2019 ~ With great sadness and grieving hearts our family mourns the loss of our patriarch, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at the age of 89.

He will be reunited with his beloved wife Noëlla (April 6, 2018) and his son Réjean (March 1, 2012). Loving father of Yves (Karen), Johanne Ayotte (Gilles), Yvan (Debbie), Chantal Roy (Tim), Mario (Jennifer), Luc and Nathalie Roy (Albert). Proud grandfather of Jason, Stéphanie (Adam), Patrick (Sarah), Ellysha (Jake), Krista-Marie (Mara), Spencer, Nicole (Prab), Michael, Matthew and Kendall. Great grandfather of Zoe, Lexie, Nathan, Finn and Reed. Predeceased by his parents Gédéon and Diana and his brothers Gérard (late Monique), Lionel (Anna) and sisters, Gilberte Labonté (late Alphonse) and Lise Miraud (late Anthony). Brother of Yvon (late Dorothy) and Claude (Béatrice). Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Armand was kind, caring and generous. He had a gentle soul, who was always ready to lend a hand day or night. He was a great mentor to his children and took great pride in his work. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

At Armand’s request there will be no visitation or service. A private family ceremony will take place at a later date.

Memorial donations (payable by cheque) to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E 705-759-2522).

The Roy family would like to thank the EMS, ICU team, nurses and doctors at the Sault Area Hospital 3C for their compassionate care.
