It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Jean-Pierre Paré at his home on April 17, 2018. “JP”, as he was known to his family and friends, proudly served his country for 33 years with the rank of CWO in the Canadian Armed Forces. Following his retirement in August 2001, JP, with his wife Martine, moved to their home in Harlowe.
JP was happiest outdoors; fishing, hunting, woodworking and gardening. While stuck indoors JP took an interest in making furniture, finishing a complete Bedroom Set and a Dining Set that hosted Friends and Family. JP really enjoyed life and was always happy when surrounded by family and friends, especially over a glass of whiskey.
He was always there to help friends and people in the community in any way he could. He was a director for COFA for many years and for the last three years became a regular member of his church.
Survived by his wife of 28 years Martine, and children Dominique (Jenny), and Benjamin. Pre-deceased by his sister Ginette (Jean), survived by his brother Normand (Marilyn).
