LAPIERRE, Jean Clement Leon

With an extremely deep sense of loss, we announce the passing of Jean Leon Lapierre.
He was a good friend, community member, hard worker and devoted Father. Jean is survived by his four daughters, Denise Lapierre, Jeannine Pavlick (Stephen Pavlick), Suzanne Lapierre (Elke Brandstatter) and Deanne Lapierre. He also left behind three canine friends that will miss him greatly.
Jean was predeceased by his wife Carole Lapierre and his brothers and sisters (Carmen, Marie Louise, Ephraim, and Arthur). Jean was the youngest in his family and lost both his parents early in life.
One of the memories he talked about was a pony he had growing up. Jean’s life as a Father started early, and he worked throughout the province on many drilling rigs.
Jean enjoyed many things throughout his life and was gifted to be able to travel a bit. He enjoyed a good steak and a nice bowl of ice-cream, dancing and playing cards. Jean’s career started at a young age in Saskatchewan. He then came out to Alberta and worked for many years in the drilling industry. Jean and his family lived in Spruce Grove since the mid 60’s.
Jean was owner and operator of Bear Paving. He worked until he was in his late 70’s and had many men and some women in the area involved in his work life. He enjoyed running heavy equipment and was able to mentor many employees.
The family would like to thank all the people who helped Jean. Employees of some agencies such as Alberta Health, Homecare agencies, Discovery Place, Misericordia Hospital, and his last residence at the General Hospital. He had many Physicians and Specialists who helped him along his journey that we wish to thank.
Cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life and Inurnment will take place at his final resting place at an undetermined date; to be announced.
The family asks that any type of donations be given in memory of Jean to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society.

From telling Deanne and I to go to Jacks and get him a maple walnut sundae, to making us go wake up Suzanne after she’d been out all night ( positive she wanted to break the record that had “Wake up Little Suzy” on it lol) He would tease Deanne and I that the basement was haunted and if we watched a scary movie upstairs he thought it hysterical to sneak in and scare us. Jean would pretend to teach us French and if we weren’t paying attention he’d wipe his dirty grease fingers on our cheeks or arms. Never a dull day with Jean in it. Lots of love to J, D, S and D xoxo

Denise Lapierre

(I am missing you a lot after having a fire & loosing my cat in the fire. You suggested to me to look after myself and I’ll always remember that.) My Dad, Jean, was raised in an era when men were raised to be strong and not show their feelings. I am glad my Dad and I got to form a closer relationship in these years before his death. He was hard worker and liked supporting people. He was quite social.but enjoyed his alone time as well. He lost both his parents at a young age. I would like to have him still on earth but that was not in the cards. Happy trails, Love Denise

Stephen Pavlick

Jean was my father in law, and I first met him 43 yrs ago when I was dating his 18 year old daughter, Jeannine. He was a big burly man and very intimidating, but soon got to know each other and our friendship and love grew from there. Many games of crib and loonies were passed back and forth till the day he passed. He loved his work and his work was his life. He was so passionate about every project, his equipment and the people he worked with.
Later in life we had to drag him away from work, and he enjoyed Fairmont with friends and family, and of course our dogs.
Jean was an animal lover and seemed happier to see them than us, lol
Rest In Peace Jean
We love you.
