Maurice Celestin Chaboteaux

August 2, 1954 -April 11, 2013

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Maurice.

Predeceased by his father and mother Sylvain and Jenny Chaboteaux of Surrey BC and his uncle and aunt Jean and Dorothy Fourneau of Cumberland BC.

Leaving behind to morn him is the love of his life; his wife of 30 years, Sherry and his son Christopher whom he dearly loved.

His brothers Noel (June) Chaboteaux and Francis Gagne and his sisters Jeanne (Ilia) Lot, Louise (Roy) Antle, Taylor Shandlier, and Shirley Chaboteaux-Armstrong; nephews Murray, Mark, Wade and Elio and nieces, Colleen, Karen, Jennifer, Nikki, Dawn and Courtenay. Families of Jean (Jackie) Fourneau and Dennis (Diane) Fourneau and his lifelong friend Jerry (Julie) O’Leary who shared a lot of the good times!

Maurice was very adventurist in his teen years, taking a plane to Australia by himself; working there and later catching a freighter ship bound for Florida then backpacking home to the Island bringing gifts for the family and stories of his many adventures.

But the highlight of his life was meeting the girl who stole his heart; Sherry Rossiter, their marriage and the birth of their son, Christopher.

We will miss you Maurice – until we meet again …

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Cremation at Piercy’s Funeral Home with a memorial (celebration of life) to be held at a later date.
