In loving memory of Reginald (Reg) St-Pierre, who passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Sunday, March 31, 2024, at Health Sciences North, Sudbury, at the age of 87.

Dear son of Rosario and Rose-Alma St-Pierre (nee Lapointe) (both predeceased). He was a loving husband of 55 years to Lois Margaret (nee Cumming), predeceased. Adored father of Denise St. Louis (Jeff predeceased) of Ottawa, Denis (Sandra) of Toronto, Daniel (Rosanne Smagac) of Val Caron and Micheal (Heidi) of Vancouver. Sadly missed by his grandchildren Todd (Christine), Ryan (Shannon), Reinisa, Tara (Saljuq), Stephanie (Cody, predeceased), Justin (Jacki) and Dean (Susan). He was a proud great-grandpa to Malcolm, Lexi, Sophie, Paisley, Everett, Charli and baby Bowen. Survived by sisters Claudette (Pitre, predeceased), Charlotte (Jean-Paul), Paulette, Solange (Réjean, predeceased) and brother Christian (Estaire). Predeceased by sister Muriel (Théo, also predeceased) and brother Lucien. Also predeceased by his in-laws Arthur and Iona Cumming.

Raised in Mont-Joli, Que., on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, Reg forever credited his parents for instilling in him an unshakable spiritual foundation, a devotion to family above all, and the values of self-respect, respect for others, hard work and perseverance that guided and sustained him throughout his life.

As a teenager, Reg set aside his education and individual goals in order to help his family navigate tough economic times. Leaving his hometown far behind, he sought employment in isolated, far-flung locations. He found jobs on the construction of the Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railway, and later on the DEW (Distant Early Warning) Line being developed in the Canadian Arctic, all the while sending money home to his beloved family.

Barely into his 20s, Reg made the defining decision of his life, making his way to Sudbury to seek a career in the mining industry. While a mining job never materialized, it was in Sudbury where Reg met Lois Cumming. They fell in love, married and raised four children. Their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were their greatest source of joy and fulfilment.

Reg built a successful career in business, most notably as manager of Northern Ontario operations for ABSO Blue Prints Ltd. He built long-standing relationships with, and earned the deep respect of clients in communities across the North, including architects, engineers and professionals in the mining industry and numerous government agencies.

A voracious newspaper reader and crossword whiz, Reg also was an avid sports fan, a staunch, lifelong Montreal Canadiens supporter with an encyclopedic knowledge of hockey history. He was active in community service and volunteerism, as a minor sports coach and as a member of the Club Richelieu.

The family wishes to thank the dedicated staff of the fifth floor of the Extendicare York long-term care home for the wonderful care and comfort they provided Reg over the last several months.

As per Reg’s request, there will be no visitation.

Funeral Mass in Ste-Marguerite-d’Youville Church, 4290 Old Hwy. 69, Val Therese, Ont., on Friday, April 5, 2024, at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Lunch and a Celebration of Life in the Church Hall.

Donations in memory of Reg to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Northern Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.
