Obituary of William Uleric Brioux
William Uleric Brioux – July 29, 1931 - April 18, 2019
Peacefully, at Hospice Peterborough, on Thursday, April 18th, 2019, in his 88th year, Wm. “Bud” Brioux lost his 18 year battle with cancer. He was courageous to the end despite the onset of Parkinson’s these last 3 years. He will be forever missed by his loving wife Joan Hébert Brioux, his daughters Carol (Ryan) Steed, Mary Brioux LaCasse, and Ann Burns, his grandchildren, Kerrington Steed and Justin Burns, his sister Louise (late Joseph) DiCecco, and his brother Jerry Brioux. He was predeceased by his parents, Uleric and Eleanor Brioux (nee McAuliffe), his brother, Ron Brioux, and his sister Mary Louella (late Burke) Wickett (nee Brioux). Faith, prayer, and love of God were an integral part of Bud’s life. He worked in the printing business all his life, specializing in Heidelberg presses, forming his own successful business, Wm. U. Brioux and Assoc. in 1982. He was an amazing Mr. Fix-it. Bud was an accomplished sportsman (tennis, squash, golf) and loved fishing, dancing and playing cards. He loved spending time at the cottage on Buckhorn Lake and was often fishing in the evening, trying to catch the big one or training chipmunks to eat out of his hand. Winters in Vero Beach with our wonderful, caring friends were very special to him. We were blessed to spend 3 months there this winter. Bud will be lovingly remembered by his in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and all who knew him for his wonderful bear hugs, his engaging smile, the twinkle in his eyes and the love in his heart. Friends may call at ASHBURNHAM FUNERAL HOME, 840 Armour Road, Peterborough, on Wednesday, April 24th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Mass to be held at ST. ANNE’S CHURCH, 859 Barnardo Avenue, Peterborough, on Thursday at 11 a.m. Inurnment at St. Peter’s Cemetery at a later date. If desired, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, Parkinson Canada, or Hospice Peterborough would be appreciated by the family.
