In Loving Memory of
September 28, 1960 – March 31, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rejean Pageau on March 31, 2013 at the Kitimat General Hospital. Rejean was predeceased by his parents, Raymond Pageau and Alice Verret. He is survived by his loving wife Mia Algarvio; daughter Pascale; sister Claire (Pierre Hamel); brothers Gilles (Joanne Robinson), and André (Véronique Hamel); parents-in-law Maria and Joseph Algarvio; brother-in-law Glen (Claudine Fiset); aunts Juliette Verret (late Victorien Rhéaume) and Anoncia Verret (late Rosario Rhéaume); uncle Louis-Philippe Verret; and numerous cousins, nieces/nephews, and friends.
Rejean was born in Lac St-Charles, near Quebec City, QC where he grew up and went to school. When he graduated from Laval University in 1983 as a mechanical engineer, he joined the Canadian Army where he worked in Calgary (1986) and Chilliwack (1988). He completed graduated studies in Bangor, ME (1991) and then went to work for the Saguenay (Chicoutimi) town. In 1997, he joined Rio Tinto Alcan in Kitimat, BC where he worked since then.
Wherever he lived and worked he was appreciated and respected by all who knew him. He was an accomplished athlete and outdoorsman, and did many marathons and triathlons. He enjoyed hiking, biking, fishing, skiing and kayaking.
The Algarvio/Pageau families would like to thank the community, friends and colleagues for their prayers, generosity and kind gestures. A special thank you to the Kitimat General Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital nursing staff, and doctors who provided compassionate care.
The funeral mass will be held in Kitimat at Christ the King Catholic Church on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 1:30pm.
We hold you close within our hearts, and there you will remain, to walk with us throughout our lives, until we meet again.
Forever loved and missed.
