Patrick C. "Pat" Losier
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Patrick C. "Pat" Losier announces his passing, which occurred peacefully at Bobby’s Hospice on Saturday, June 17, 2017 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Saint John on April 14, 1953, he was a son of the late J. Felix and Odette L. (Mai) Losier.
Pat was an avid outdoorsman. He loved deer and moose hunting, as well as bass fishing down by the falls. He was a skilled fly fisherman who excelled at fly tying. His prized fish was a 63 lb. striped bass which was mounted on a plaque at Doiron’s Sports Excellence store.
Pat was a skilled labourer and a jack of all trades. Over the years, he held several jobs in Saint John: Simm’s Brush Company, Lantic Sugar Refinery, City of Saint John Parks and Recreation, Irving Refinery during the expansion as a labourer and drove taxi for five years. He also used his handyman skills to help people with odd jobs, like painting, moving, building decks, hanging drywall and crackfilling.
He was a kind, gentle man with a great love for family and a passion for helping others. He loved to tell jokes and make people laugh. Pat will be missed by all who knew him.
