Ernest Villeneuve Obituary

Peacefully passed away at the Algonquin Nursing Home on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, at the age of 90 years. Beloved husband of the late Beatrice (nee Tardif-Kelly).

Cherished father of John Villeneuve, Ernie Villeneuve Jr. (Christine Dyelle), Donna Villeneuve (Barrie Therrien), James Villeneuve, and Teri Villeneuve (Jim Burton) and a fourth son in everything but name Ivan Friday-Taylor (Doreen Dyelle).

Loving grandfather of Dustin, Derrick, Darwin, Melissa, Jessica, Kevin, Ali, Stephen, and Jonathan and great-grandfather of Ian, Isaac, Beau, Ben, Layla, Dominic, and Mackenzie.

Predeceased by his parents Joseph Arthur Villeneuve and Henriette (Hattie) Meilleur and his entire family, a step-sister Antoinette (Tony), sisters Doreen, Olivene, Patricia Philomene (Teresa), Viola (Enid), Irene, Catherine (Mae), and a brother Leonard Arthur who died shortly after birth.  He is also survived by a number of nieces and nephews.

He will be sadly missed by his close friend Robert (Bob) Lessard and his wife Fran as well as a number of staff from the Algonquin Nursing Home with whom he had many a heartfelt conversation. His care at the Home was exceptional.

As per Ernest’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of life (think Irish Wake) at a date yet to be determined.

If desired, donations to the Alzheimer Society would be gratefully acknowledged by his family. Online condolences can be made at

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
