Posted by on April 25, 2015

FOUCAULT, AdrienPeacefully passed away at home surrounded by his family on Friday, April 3rd, 2015 at the age of 81 years. Son of the late Paul and late Cecile (née Fex) Foucault. Beloved husband of 58 years to Aline (née Richer) Foucault. Loving father of Lorraine Luciw Bodnar (Larry), Pauline Birchall (Jim) and Nicole Foucault (Chris Carveth).

Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. He will also be missed by his special feline friend Minoune. Adrien was a proud member of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, council 5005, Assembly St-Jacques 1746.

Adrien was a kind and passionate man whose warmth and generosity were only surpassed by his love for his family. And Adrien loved to work with his hands. From his 33 years working at Inco, to his 22 years repairing campers and RVs at Foucault Trailer Sales, to his daily routine of helping anyone in need – Adrien rarely came to dinner without dirt under his fingernails. He had a knack for fixing anything and a passion for doing it right. If there is anything broken in heaven, we are certain that Adrien has already started to repair it.

The family will receive relatives and friends at the Cooperative Funeral Home 4570 St. Joseph Street, Hanmer on Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 from 2-5 and 7-9:30 p.m. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 at 11 a.m. at Ste-Marguerite d’Youville, Val Thérèse.
