BISSON, Pierre Andre (Pete) – It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. Peacefully on Saturday, September 22, 2012, after a long battle with lung disease, Pierre took his last breath at St. Joseph’s Hospice at the age of 76. He will be sadly missed by  Mona (Cote), his wife of 53 years, daughters Nicole (Darrell), Rachel (Douglas), Judith and son Daniel (Katherine). Grandsons Jonah, Mitchell, Lucien, Roch and August will miss their pepere very much. Also survived by a sister Marguerite.  Predeceased by parents Mendoza & Ida Bisson, brothers Gerald, Robert and Ernest, sisters Francoise, Madeleine and Sylvia. Pete will be fondly remembered by all his family and friends from Lac Talon (North Bay). Their cottage (Plage D’Or) was one of his greatest joys. He loved spending his summers in “God’s Country”.
