Forever in our hearts
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Alfred Gareau, eldest son of the late Gertrude Beede and the late Joseph Aime Gareau. Fred is survived by his beloved wife of 62 years, Shirley Hawboldt Gareau, his daughter Debbie, his son-in-law Dirk Scott and his youngest brother John Stuart (Gerrie). He is predeceased by his sister Joan Davies and his brothers Maurice, David and Larry.
Fred will be greatly missed by all who knew him; his best friend since early childhood, Thorley Astels (the late Eva Hawboldt). his many nieces and nephews; his long-time friends from Cardinal Street; his friends and co-workers from Montreal Trust where he worked for over 40 years, and many others whose lives he brightened with his passion for life and his generous heart.
Rugged until the very end, Fred truly was "the Best in the West". He will always be in our hearts.
Visitation will be at Rideau Funeral Home, 4275 Sources Blvd., Dollard-des-Ormeaux on Friday, October 11th 2019. To leave condolences visit www.arbormemorial.ca/en/rideau/obituaries
