Réal Morissette

Posted By Obits On February 11, 2020 @ 2:04 pm In Obituaries | 56 Comments


Réal passed away after a fierce battle with pancreatic cancer on Sunday February 9th, 2020 at the age of 72 years old. He is survived by his spouse of 36 years Dannielle Cloutier, his proudest accomplishment, son Jason (Ashley), and his faithful companion Bailee. Réal will be further missed by his siblings Eva (Noël), Diane, Réjeanne, Laurette, Rosalie (Louis), Marc and Solange (Gaby), as well as in-laws René (Aline), Isabelle (Yvon), Nicole (Don), Marc (Lisa), Denis (Jeanne), Linda, Richard (Susan), Martine and many nieces and nephews.

Réal worked for Normick Perron, Grant Forest Products and Georgia Pacific. These were places where one had to work long, hard hours, and you could always count on Réal, the eternal jokester, to liven up the mill, tease people, play tricks and give his opinion on many, many things. He loved to buck the system, and believed that “rules are meant to be broken”. Some found this exciting, where others were not amused. Either way he was happy.

He had a love affair with hot dogs and would pick them over steak anytime. If the wife was away for a weekend and although the fridge was full of prepared meals, he would grab a frozen pack of hotdogs, pan fry them and eat them standing in the kitchen while making sure to drop bits and pieces on the ground for his sidekick Bailee.

Réal took fashion advice from no one. His signature look was a pair of jeans, preferably stained with paint or grease, a shirt with rolled-up sleeves and a baseball cap. This was proper attire for working around the house, shopping in town, having lunch at a restaurant or visiting friends. He would dust himself off a bit and declare himself ready to go; much to the dismay of others.

He was a hoarder of tools and truly believed that there is a need for 87 screwdrivers, as well as to have every socket set available in the universe. It could also just be a guy thing.

He was a big kid at heart and would get down on the ground to play with the little ones, build snow forts or obstacle courses with the older ones. He would show them magic tricks and card tricks. At family gatherings, there would often be a gaggle of kids around him, much to the delight of the other parents who were enjoying a few moments of peace and quiet.

Réal was clearly a man who loved to make people laugh and it will continue even though he is no longer with us. Although his wife refused to honor his request of sending a few cases of beer with him on his way to the other side, raising a glass of your favorite drink in his memory would be quite appropriate. Cheers!

Condolence from Audrey LeBlanc on February 12th, 2020 4:44 am

Dannielle and Jason my family and I send you our deepest sympathies and condolences. We are sending you loads of courage as you both will need that in the weeks and months to come. Real was my rock when I was young, to me Real was the big brother I didn’t have. Although we didn’t communicate for the most part of my adult life he was always in my heart and on my mind. I would call tante Doria regularly and ask her how Real and Ti-Marc were doing. He will be greatly missed.

Condolence from Pete Bredow on February 12th, 2020 6:49 am

Danielle and Family
My memories and of visiting your home and working with Real will always be at the forefront of my time at Grant’s!
Real taught me many things… Although he portrayed for most a hard exterior but I seen beyond that, he loved you and his family more than anything in this world. He cherished his family time and often recounted how he spent his weekend! His sense of humour is unmatched and if you were a true friend he had you back and would do anything for you!
A man I learned to love and appreciate every aspect of!
My deepest condolences and know my heart is with you!

Condolence from Jason deLeeuw on February 12th, 2020 7:17 am

My thoughts are with Real’s family at this time of loss. I knew Real from the good old Grant Forest Product days. I enjoyed many chats with him in and out of work. Always had a laugh when dealing with him because he was a straight to the point kinda guy. No sugar coating from Real ????, and that’s what made him, him.
Sorry for your loss Real will be missed by many but never forgotten.
