"When I am gone, release me. Let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many beautiful years.
I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it’s time I traveled alone.”
OUELLET, Pierre-André passed away peacefully, with his partner Cheryl Rich at his side. He was 59 years old.
Pierre-André also leaves behind his mother, Diane Carriere from Lewiston, Montana and his brother, Simon (Betty Calic) from Hamilton ON, his fur babies Silly, Mitsy, Meeka, and Sugar, cousins, relatives, and many friends. He is pre-deceased by his father, Jacques.
Pierre-André was born in Shawinigan, Quebec but grew up in Montreal. He moved to Lethbridge in the early 2000s. Pierre graduated from the CEGEP of Matane QC majoring in photography. He was a prolific, award winning photographer, lover of animals, wildlife and nature. His ideal vacation was to load up his SUV and head to the Yukon, admire its nature and add to his photography collection. Professionally, Pierre-André was an accomplished web designer, a perfect field for his attention to detail and his artistic flair.
Although Pierre-André struggled with his health the past few years, he never lost his zest for life, admiration of Cheryl, his love of food and his animals. Pierre-André would give his heart and soul to the ones he loved and befriended. He will be missed but his memory will live on.
