Paul Joseph Hébert, a beloved resident of Moncton, NB, passed away peacefully at the age of 76 on Tuesday, October 24th, 2023. His courageous battle against lung cancer ended at the Moncton Hospital. Born and raised in Moncton, Paul was the son of the late Henri “Harry” Hébert and Rita Hébert (born Bastarache). He is survived by his children, Peter Hébert (Lisa), Norman Hébert (Holy), and Maxx Newlove, along with his siblings, Linda Hébert, Dianne Cormier (Rheal), and Henri Hébert (Maureen). His grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and numerous friends will dearly miss him.
Paul’s family was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Lee Hébert (born Peddle), and two siblings, Jeanne Hébert-Johnson and Pauline Hébert (Infant). Throughout his working years, Paul made significant contributions to different industries. After dedicating 21 years to the CN shops as a boiler maker and working as a welder at the Moncton Foundry, he joined Midland, where he was renowned enough to be awarded the Million Miles Award. Paul retired in 2005 after a successful 16-year career at Midland. In his leisure time, he enjoyed activities such as golfing, watching movies, and sharing anecdotes and jokes with anyone willing to listen. Paul was an accomplished chess player and an ardent supporter of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. Above all, he cherished his role as a dedicated and loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
Paul was a respected member of the Pine Tree community, where he formed countless friendships while taking walks with his beloved Pomeranian, Taffy. Described by his family and friends as a fun-loving jester, Paul was always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. As the end neared, his loved ones united to provide him with unwavering support. In accordance with his wishes, no visitation will be held. However, a graveside service will take place at Fair Haven Funeral Home & Cemetery, followed by a reception in the Garden View Reception Room of the funeral home on Sunday, October 29th at 1:00 p.m. Visitors are kindly requested to arrive no later than 12:45 p.m. An online book of condolences is available at http://www.fairhavenmemorial.ca.
