Louis Branconnier Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather and great grandfather Louis Branconnier. 

Louis passed away peacefully at the Roblin Hospital on September 12, 2023.

Louis was born on December 29th, 1930 in the District of Walkerburn to David Branconnier and Annie Branconnier (nee Jerome).

Louis was mostly self employed and worked hard all his life, usually bull work. When he had his outfitters, he met a lot of interesting people and enjoyed trading stories with them. Louis was immortalized on film when he appeared (in cameo) as the rugged mountain man in Dick Idol's "White tails of the North". Up until a few years ago he was still cutting his own firewood. Louis was an avid hunter, trapper and fisherman. He enjoyed being outside, picnics with family and Metis gatherings. If the fiddle was playing Louis' toe would be tapping.

Louis felt his native roots deeply and would often smudge at our campfires and gatherings. He loved when he was surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He enjoyed sharing stories about his life and always had a captive audience. The kettle was always on for all who stopped by. His smile and laugh were infectious.

Louis was predeceased by his wife Alice, and his beloved children, Darlene and Hector, and his daughter in law Nellie Lucier. Over the years he has said goodbye to many family members.
Left to mourn his passing are his sons, Larry (Brenda) of Roblin, Horace (Debbie) of Altona, daughter in law Verna Branconnier of Roblin, step children Armand Lucier of Roblin and Patsy (Lloyd) Vermeylen of Winnipeg. Louis is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, brothers Lennice and Rene (Sharon), sisters Betty (Delbert) Burback, Lucille (Philip) Rezansoff and Linda.

Louis will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. We want to thank the Home Care Workers for all they did for him. He truly appreciated you. 

In keeping with Louis' wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.
