“Those we love and lose are always connected by heartstrings into infinity” (Terri Guillemets)
It is with heavy and sad hearts that the family of Leo Mazerolle announce his passing on Friday, July 29, 2022 at the Miramichi Regional Hospital after a brief illness.
He was born on July 4, 1951 in Chatham, NB; the youngest son of the late George and Obeline Mazerolle.
He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Mary, his children Heather (Grant), Norman (Late Lisa), Jamie and his precious grandchildren Kayla (David), Victoria (Derek) and Andrew. He is also survived by his siblings Argentine Richard (Late Gerald), Maria Brown (Chris), Edith Theriault (Late Paul), Hubert (Yvette), Roddy (Gail), Edna Demers (late Armand); his brothers-in-law Eric Blackwood, Yvon Manuel, Billy Murphy, Tommy Murphy (Bonnie) and sister-in-law Eileen Lane (Late Richard) as well as many nieces, nephews and a large extended family.
He was predeceased by his siblings Nicolas Muzzerolle, George, Eloise (Joe), Aline, Rina, Vilbon, Enlevine and Stella; his brother-in-law George Murphy and sister-in-law Betty Wells.
Leo spent the majority of his working career at the Iron Ore Company of Canada in Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador. Upon retirement, Leo Returned to his New Brunswick roots and settled in the community of Trout Brook where he has earned the accolade of “Community Keeper”. Leo spent many hours along the banks of the river working at the Miramichi Northwest Lodge Fishing Camp.
Leo loved to be busy and was always available and willing to lend a helping hand; be it to help repair a car, clear a driveway or just to have a chat. He loved spending time in his garage tinkering with cars, visiting with friends and woodworking. His woodworking pieces will now be cherished keepsakes. His summer pride and joy was his garden that always yielded a rich harvest that he gladly shared with his family and his friends. Leo enjoyed listening to music especially classic country and anything with a toe tapping beat. Dancing, playing crib, enjoying a feed of lobster, cruising the open roads on his motorcycle, and watching the Blue Jays were a few of his favorite pass times. He loved a good time with his family and friends.
Leo will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, August 22, 2022 at 2:00pm at St James Roman Catholic Church, Sevogle with Father Dan Melanson Officiating.
In his memory, donations to a memorial of one’s choice would be appreciated by the family.
" If the legacy of a man's life is defined by the lives he has touched and how much he is loved then a big piece of Leo will live on in all of us"
