Dans la sérénité et entouré des siens, le 27 avril, est décédé le Colonel Gaétan Belhumeur à l’âge de 81 ans. Il laisse dans le deuil son épouse Luce Dionne, ses fils Pascal (Karen Nicol), Paul (Kristen Ray), ses petits-enfants Nicolas et Nora ainsi que plusieurs frères, soeurs, beaux-frères et belles-soeurs.
Gaétan a œuvré 37 ans au sein du corps médical des forces armées canadiennes.
Gaétan aimait la nature, la pêche, la chasse et jardiner. L'horloge grand-père, le curio etc... nous rappelleront ses talents d’ébéniste.
Toute notre reconnaissance aux médecins, infirmières, infirmiers et au personnel des soins intensifs de l'hôpital Monfort pour leur bonté, sollicitude et réconfort prodigués à Gaétan et la famille.

La famille recevra les condoléances au Centre commémoratif national Beechwood, 280 avenue Beechwood, Ottawa, le samedi le 18 mai à  compter  de 13 heures suivi de la ceremonie à 14 heures ainsi que l'inhumation et une réception.

En témoignage de sympathie, des dons en sa mémoire aux soins intensifs de l'hôpital Monfort seraient appréciés.

Sad news to hear about a longtime friend - We go back to the late 50 / 85 when I retired and continued for many years since. We share many good discussions especially at the /Gen NDHQ as well as many other CF Base. It is always said to hear of the passing of so many we all knew so well while serving the RCA and later CFMS.

Too the Family please on behalf of Pauline and I our Sincere Condolences

Rest in Peace Old Friend

Jim and Pauline

Although he scared the hell out of me as a young officer, Colonel Belhumeur had a direct and positive influence on the officer I became. My deepest condolences to his family.

Un camarade des tout premiers temps car nous étions à l'École des services de santé, Borden, Ontario en 1963-64 alors qu'il était lieutenant et conduisait une superbe Studebaker. Nous nous sommes ensuite croisés ici et là au gré des années et avons servi ensemble tant au Canada qu'en Allemagne, ou nous avons eu du bon temps. On ne s'était pas vu depuis deux ans peut-être mais nous nous réunissions régulièrement avec les autres membres de la "gang de l'Allemagne" pour un bon repas et pour discuter du bon vieux temps. Il aura eu un belle vie ainsi qu'une belle carrière et du bon temps à la retraite. Il était respecté pour son intégrité et un des piliers de la vieille garde. Mes plus sincères condoléances à Luce et à la famille et je me ferai un devoir d'être là samedi le 18 prochain pour être avec vous et faire mes adieux à notre colonel.

The Colonel and I spared many time when we worked together but we always respected each other. His passing is by far too early, my condolences to his family and the Medical Services he served.
