Manitouwadge Mourns Barry Courtemanche

It is with profound sadness that the family of Barry Shawn Courtemanche, age 42, born on December 7th, 1974, announce his passing on Thursday, October 19th, 2017 in Cheticamp, N.S.

Barry, devoted husband of Vanessa (Wastila), loving father of Sydney and Hunter, son of Gerry (Kettles) and Joe Courtemanche, brother of Shannon Cormier (Courtemanche). He loved and was loved by his many nieces and nephews, cousins, extended family and was a loyal friend to many.

Barry was a man of few words but showed his tremendous amount of love for his family and friends in his own way. He was happiest when with his family, on his Harley-Davidson, or having a beer.

We would like to sincerely thank all those involved in helping bring peace to his family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope for Wildlife or a charity of your choice.

There will be an informal gathering at the Fire Hall in Cheticamp, N.S. on Friday, October 27th from 7-9pm as well as a visitation at KG’s Bar and Grill in his hometown of Manitouwadge, ON on Sunday, October 29th from 1- 3pm. All are welcome—please come as you are.
