Gerard Pierre Chiasson


Gerard Pierre Chiasson

Chiasson, Gerard Pierre, age 56, of Pomquet passed away on November 5, 2020 in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Antigonish he was the son of Flora (Mason) Chiasson and the late John Chiasson.

Gerard was a proud and loving husband, father and papa. Although he seemed reserved, he enjoyed life deeply, finding his greatest joys in his family, never afraid to take his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews on adventures four wheeling, fishing or doing the "Dukes" up to the camp.  All well documented in the family home videos! He was an amazing provider, and spent many years caring for not only his wife and children, but his parents as well.   During his journey with Cancer, he was strengthened and uplifted up by the outpouring of your prayers, care and love.  Because of this support, the cancer seemed to give to Gerard, instead of taking from him. His family gained precious quality time with him; in many ways, the best days of their lives.

Prior to his illness he worked with Sobeys for thirty-eight years. In that time he went from stocking shelves to managing to administration and he was very close to his Sobeys family.

Besides his mother, he is survived by his wife of 36 years, Angela (Teasdale); children: Ryan (Jacinta), Pomquet; Johnney, South Lochaber; daughter, Allison, Pomquet; grandchildren: Leah, Lorne and Ellie; brothers. Wade (Corinne) Chiasson, Saulnierville and Danny (Cathy) Mason, Trenton Ontario; sister, Elaine Sangster, Pomquet;  father and mother in law, Charlie and Julia Teasdale.  He will also be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews and his Teasdale family.

Croix Church, Pomquet on November 23 at 11am with Reverend Andrew Gillies presiding.  Covid rules will apply. Burial following in the parish cemetery.
