Obituary of Oliver Joseph Picard

It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce that Oliver left this world on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, in his 87th year, surrounded by his children.

Predeceased by his loving wife of 64 years Olivette ‘Yvette’.  Oliver will be greatly missed by his children; Nancy (Ricky) Noël, Donna (Harold) O’Neill, Karl (Sharon), Garry (Kelly) and Brenda (Peter).  Oliver leaves behind his loving grandchildren; Joseph (Andrée), Sarah, Jessica (Josh), Travis (Heather), Kallie (Shawn), Karah (Maxime), Anna (Curtis), T.J., Tim (Nicole) and great-grandchildren; Angélique, Raphaël, Molly-Ann, Nathan-Joseph, Ava, Aucelia, Clare, Teryk Vaughn, Charley, Dax, Austin, Cheyenne, Owen, Jacob, Xavier, Alekzndr and Ila.  Predeceased by his mother Lillian Sage and father Joseph Picard and by brothers and sisters; Bud, Jerry, Fred, Rita, Stella, Florence, Raymond.  He will be greatly missed by his sister Sonja.

Oliver was well known for his love of family.  He was a gifted musician and entertained people over the years with his country music, doing a particularly great rendition of Johnny Cash.  When Yvette had her restaurant, Oliver could often be found sitting at the table regaling family and friends with stories while asking one of the grandkids to get him a plate of whatever sweets Yvette made that day.  Everyday Oliver looked forward to working on his current farm project. His career also included working over 30 years at CIP starting as a log driver and ending as Supervisor of the Low log runs.

Our heartfelt thanks to the entire staff at the Shawville Hospital.  On the day Oliver passed, the staff was very attentive and kind to Oliver and his children.

There will be no services at this time.
