It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, step-father, uncle and friend, Jean-Jacques Serceau, at the age of 75. He passed away suddenly, surrounded by his loved ones on Saturday, June 22, 2019.
He was predeceased by his parents, Jean and Eugénie, and by his wife, Odile. He leaves in mourning their children Nadia (Darryl), Jean-Michel (Rose-Marie), Laurent (Léona), Annie (Paul), Mickaël (Heather), Rodolphe (Danielle), as well as his eleven grand-children and four great-grand-children.
He leaves brokenhearted, his beloved wife, Rachel and her two children Therese and Roger.
He also leaves behind his six sisters Edwige, Marie-Madeleine, Marie-Ange, Marcelle, Bernadette and Rose-Marie and his other relatives and friends in France.
Jean-Jacques loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He dedicated much of his time to the service of his family, community and his church. People could always count on him in time of need. No challenge was unbeatable and no task was ever too small.
Les mots ne peuvent pas exprimer le vide et la peine que nous ressentons dans nos cœurs aujourd’hui. Mais il nous suffit de penser à ta joie de vivre, ta bonté, ta persévérance, ta force et ton grand amour pour retrouver notre courage. Tu resteras à jamais dans nos cœurs. Nous t’aimons et jamais nous ne t’oublierons.
Join us for a funeral mass celebrating his life on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 10:00 am at Holy Family Parish, 778 Archibald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations in memory of Jean-Jacques may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
