SIRSLY, Claude Eugene
It is with deep sadness that Claude's family announces his sudden death on Thursday, May 8, 2008 as a result of complications from surgery. Claude was 59 years of age, and was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Antoinette (FICHERA.) He leaves, in sorrow and bewilderment, his wife Christena (KEON,) his brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Carol-Ann (TETRAULT,) and his nieces, Francesca and Dominique. Claude was always close to his wife's family - his sister-in-law, Mary KEON and her partner Lewis McCALL his brothers-in-law, Jim KEON and his wife Kathleen (BAKTIS) and David KEON and his wife Jane (BLOOMER.) He enjoyed following the progress of his nieces and nephews by marriage: Jody and Holly KEON; David KEON Jr., his wife Linda and their children Kaitlyn and D.J.; Anne Marie and Jim NEMETT and their children, Laura and Liam; Kathleen and Joe ZOLDOS, and their son Michael Tim and Sheila KEON and their sons, Patrick and Benjamen. Claude was passionate about everything he undertook, but particularly focused his attention on the three 'C's': cooking - he was an exceptional cook and enjoyed entertaining Friends and family construction - he had a talent for creating solutions to complicated problems in the apartment and at the cottage in Magog; and Christena - he advised her on her career and life choices throughout their Friendship of 39 years and their marriage of 32 years. One day, we will be able to make sense of losing this insightful, kind and considerate husband and friend. We will keep the faith until that day. There will be visitation at the Centre Funeraire Cote-desNeiges, 4525 chemin de la Cote-des-Neiges, 1-888-3426565 on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 from 17: 00 to 21:00. The funeral will take place on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 10: 30 at St. Patrick's Basilica, 460 Boulevard Rene-Levesque West. Should you wish, donations in Claude's memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
