SIROIS, Fran­cis Paul

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

Fran­cis passed away peace­fully at his home in North Syd­ney with his lov­ing son at his side on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 6, 2017, at the age of 68.

Fran­cis is sur­vived by his chil­dren, Paul (Car­alee) and Cé­line (Tom); his four grand­chil­dren, Suzanne, Ma­ri­ette, Kather­ine and Lin­coln; the mother of his chil­dren, Mar­garet Price; his sib­lings, An­dré (Maisie), Jean-Marc (Linda), Leopold (Joanne), Bernard (Mary), Stella-Marie (Blair) and Rose­line (Don). His nieces, nephew, grand­nieces and grand­nephew will miss Un­cle Fran­cis at the an­nual get-to­gether.

Fran­cis was pre­de­ceased by his par­ents, Roger and Ma­ri­ette.

He will be re­mem­bered as a bril­liant and re­flec­tive man, for his mis­chievous hu­mour, his non-judg­men­tal out­look of peo­ple and his leg­endary en­thu­si­asm for golf. As the son of a mariner, his cu­rios­ity and love of travel took him to all cor­ners of the world where his con­tri­bu­tions in the fields of nu­clear physics, elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing and en­vi­ron­men­tal sciences, along with mem­o­ries of his friend­ship, work ethic and vol­un­teerism, will be last­ing.

The fam­ily will cel­e­brate Fran­cis’ life pri­vately at a later date.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial do­na­tions may be made to the North Syd­ney His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place as per his wishes.

May he rest in peace.
