Obituary of Bert Duhamel

JOSEPH ALBERT DUHAMEL A.K.A BERT. It is with great sadness in our hearts that the family announces our beloved and cherished Husband, Father, Brother, Papa, Uncle and cousin, Bert Duhamel, who recently celebrated his 70th birthday, died unexpectedly with his family by his side at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Tuesday, June 4, 2024. Bert was predeceased by his parents, Antonin Duhamel and Rita Gagne; his sisters, Doris and Irma; and brother, Larry. Bert is survived by his loving wife, Carla; his son, Brent (Joann); his daughters Nicole (Sean), Jewel (Cory), Zoey (Shane), Kylie (Tyrell), and Leta; his sisters, Marlene (Jim) and Darlene (Cam); his brothers, Jerry (Doreen), Joseph (Lorraine), and Daniel (Mona); and 10 grandchildren. Bert was born in Rainy River, Ontario, on April 9, 1954, and was raised in Atikokan, Ontario, where he spent most of his days outdoors and being picked on by his older brothers. As a teenager, Bert moved to Winnipeg and attended St. John’s High School (part-time), where he wreaked havoc and could often be found on a sports field. Bert lived most of his life in Winnipeg, Manitoba; he recently retired from Scott National/Sysco, where he worked for 40+ years. More recently, he commuted frequently to Brandon with his wife. He touched the soul of every person he met with his selflessness, enormous heart of gold and great sense of humour. Bert was always the life of the party. He was a huge sports enthusiast who enjoyed playing Pokémon and being surrounded by his family and friends, playing card games, or at sports outings. He was greatly loved and will be forever missed.
