We, the family of Gérard Bisson sadly announce his passing on January 15, 2022, at the Welland General Hospital at the age of 77. Cherished father of Michèle Bisson-Somerville (Timothy), Christine Vickers (Mickey) and Daniel Bisson (Hilary). Dear brother of Cécile Bisson, Madeleine Pinard (late Yvon), Aline Paré (late Gaston), Juliette Guillemette (late Gaston) and Jeanette Gilbert (late John). Gérard will be sadly missed by his grandchildren Ross, Maxwell and Théodore Somerville, Tyrell Grant, Audrey, Addison and Atticus Bisson. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Jeanne Bisson, his sisters Marie-Marthe Bisson, Marie-Marguerite Bisson and Thérèse Laroche.
Gérard was a member of les Chevaliers de Colomb and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #4. He was counsellor for the City of Welland for many years. One of his greatest pleasures was putting a smile on people’s faces, whether he knew them of not. Always a social man, Gérard literally knew everyone in Welland!
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to WELLAND FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE. In keeping with Gérard’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
