Obituary For Maurice R.J. Nault

It is with heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Maurice R. J. Nault, born May 7, 1959, in St. Pierre Jolys/St. Malo, Manitoba, who passed away peacefully in his sleep Saturday, May 1, 2021, at the age of 61 after a brief illness.

Maurice was predeceased by his father Napolean (Paul) Nault of Manitoba, his mother Anne-Marie Gray of Manitoba, his grandmother Florence Preteau of Manitoba, and his close friend and brother-in-law Don Mann of Saskatchewan.

Maurice was the second born to a family of 7 children, he grew up alongside his sister and 5 brothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He lived a life full of love and laughter, and was a kind hearted loving family man, who loved being outdoors. You would always find him tinkering around in the backyard or around a fire listening to nature surrounded by loved ones, creating memories, and sharing stories, He cherished the many friendships and relationships he had throughout his life. Maurice was always putting others before himself and saw only the good in everyone, he would never hesitate to help someone in need.

Maurice started his career in Manitoba at an early age working various jobs driving truck. In 1998 he was working at St Boniface Hospital as a paramedic/HCA, where he met his wife, Lori. Soon after meeting, they moved to Grande Prairie Alberta where Maurice pursued a career in the oil and gas industry, working at BJ/Baker Hughes Services for 15 years, and most recently Calfrac, where he was employed at the time of his passing. Maurice was very grateful for the knowledge, skills, and opportunities he was given in his many roles within the oil and gas industry.

Maurice came from a very large family and had a lot of close friends, He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his sweetie Lori (wife) of the past 20 years, his sons Christopher and Matthew (from a previous relationship), step children Melissa (Mark), Leanne, Tyler (Ami); Papa’s sunshine’s (grandchildren) Khylla, Caeden, Kaedyn, Kyson, Brayden, Daylan, and Rorie, great-grandchildren Matayah and Embrey; His sister Lise, brothers Dennis, Robert, Jean, Allen, Gil (Tammy), brother in-law Larry (Diane), and sister in-law Tracey (Lino); Niece Farrah (Chris) and nephew Jeremy, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and their families He will also be dearly missed by his lifelong friends Brian and Ron Lahyer, Daniel and Kerrie Wichert.

With the current public health situation, a private family gathering will be held to honor Maurice’s memory at this time. A separate gathering will be held at a later date in St. Lupicin, Manitoba when public health restrictions allow.
