It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Norbert (“Bert”) Bourgon, at the young age of 68, of Dewittville, Quebec.  Loving husband to Christine and father of Andrée (Rob), Michael (Janet) and cherished Papa Bert to Austin, Ella, Élysée, Aurielle and Zavier.  Norbert is also survived by his sister Michèle (Alain).  Bert was born at Huntingdon County Hospital to Norbert E. Bourgon and Annette Lahaie on February 24th, 1950.  He went to school at Ecole Notre Dame in Huntingdon and graduated from the first class of Chateauguay Valley Regional High School in 1967.  He married Christine Schroeder on June 19th, 1971 in Ottawa, Ontario.  Bert dedicated his working life to running his insurance brokerage firm and serving the communities of the Chateauguay Valley. Over the years Bert served as President of the Huntingdon Rotary Club and was an avid golfer having been a member at the Malone Golf Club since 1972.  Bert had a particular love for woodworking and travelling the world with Christine, while having a glass of red wine with his family and friends was always a favorite pastime.  Visitations will be held at the Montpetit Funeral Home, 170 Chateauguay St., Huntingdon, QC on June 22nd from 2pm to 4pm, and 7pm to 9pm.  A memorial service of Bert’s life will be held at St. Joseph’s Church, 16 York St., Huntingdon on June 23rd at 1pm and following the memorial service, Bert and his family invite all to the Huntingdon Legion, 8 Fairview St., Huntingdon to celebrate his life.  The family wishes to extend a sincere thank-you to the Montreal Neurological Institute, CLSC and a heartfelt appreciation to Bert’s life-long family doctor, Dr. Greg Geukjian the entire staff at the Barrie Memorial Hospital who provided wonderful care to Bert during his final hours.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Barrie Memorial Hospital Foundation, www.fondationhbm.com

C'est avec grand regret que nous vous annonçons le décès de M. Norbert (Bert) Bourgon, agé de 68 ans, de Dewittville.  Tendre époux de Christine, père aimant de Andrée (Rob) et Michael (Janet), grand-père adoré de Austin, Ella, Élysée, Aurielle et Zavier.  Il laisse également dans le deuil sa soeur Michèle (Alain).  Bert est né à l'Hôpital de Huntingdon , le 24 février 1950,  fils de Norbert E. Bourgon et de Annette Lahaie. Il fréquenta l'École Notre-Dame de Huntingdon et fît parti de la 1ère cohorte à graduer de l'École Chateauguay Valley Regional High School en 1967.  Il maria Christine Schroeder, le 19 juin 1971, à Ottawa en Ontario.   Bert se dédia pleinement à son travail en présidant sa compagnie en assurance et à servir la communauté de la Vallée de la Châteauguay.  Il occupa la présidence du Club Rotary de Huntingdon, golfeur et membre du Club de golf de Malone depuis 1972.  Bert aimait pratiquer la sculpture sur bois , voyager à travers le monde avec Christine, et particulièrement savourer un verre de vin rouge avec la famille et les amis.  Les visites auront lieu, le vendredi 22 juin de 14 à 16 heures et de 19 à 21 heures au salon funéraire Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils Inc., 170 rue Châteauguay, Huntingdon.  Le service religieux aura lieu, le samedi 23 juin à 13 heures en l'Église Saint-Joseph de Huntingdon, 16 rue York, Huntingdon.   La famille vous invite tous, après les funérailles, à la Légion de Huntingdon, 8 chemin Fairview, Huntingdon pour célébrer le passage de la vie de Bert.  La famille désire exprimer leurs reconnaissances et leurs gratitudes à l'Institut Neurologique de Montréal, au CLSC, au Dr. Greg Geukjian (médecin de famille et ami de longue date), au personnel de l'Hôpital Barrie Memorial de Ormstown (pour les merveilleux soins prodigués en fin de vie).  Au lieu de fleurs, des dons à la Fondation de l'Hôpital Barrie Memorial de Ormstown seraient grandement appréciés par la famille.  www.fondationhbm.com  Les messages de sympathie peuvent être transmis au : www.rodriguemontpetitfils.com

  • Jo and Michael Coffey

    His memory will not wane as those who mourn him get on with their lives. The beautiful soul that was Bert has been etched in the minds and hearts of anyone who knew him......even for a short time. We are so thankful for our years in Florida, seeing that smile, hearing his laugh, being on the receiving end of those warm hugs, and watching the event of the winter......the Canada vs USA Shuffle Board Championship. We were always Team Bert and Frank, waving the little Canadian flag that Mike made sure we brought each year. I’ve never used the phrase, “a prince of a man”. I will, now, because that was Bert. The most important to Bert was his family. And, Christine, you were most certainly his soulmate.

    Bert was such a genuine and charismatic person. I met him through my good friends, the O’Connors. I always enjoyed any opportunity to chat with Bert and Christine. Although I didn’t see him often, I was always struck with his appreciation of life, warm laugh and care and concern for others.

    My prayers are with Christine and all of the family.
    God Bless,

  • Debbie Sherry

    My deepest sympathy to Christine and family. Norbert is someone that I've always known and someone that always made me smile. I remember having a little slide into the ditch just outside Huntingdon on the 138 one wintery morning long ago. Norbert was right there on his way to work, he picked me up, my insurance guy hahaha and drove me home , he knew I was a little shook up but he made me feel like it happened to everyone, don't worry about it he said with a smile. Norbert you will be missed by all who knew you, may you make everyone smile and feel better ...somewhere over the rainbow.
