With great sadness, we announce the passing of Louis Andre Robert Badiou. Lou went peacefully in his sleep at Actionmarguerite St. Vital on Monday June 7, 2021, at 76 years of age.
Cherishing his memory are his loving wife Donna Badiou, his daughter Leah Badiou and Lou’s “additional children”, Amanda (Dave), Cody (Tiffany), Jolene and Emily Christie; Ron and Don Kinash. Also left to mourn are his grandchildren Jennifer (Rob), Jeff, Olivia, Grace, Alexis, Meya, Carter and Jamie, along with great-grandchildren Tessa and Tayler. He is also survived by his brothers Fern Badiou and Henri (Jocelyne) Badiou and sister Marie-Ange Lesage; as well as numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews relatives and friends. We are left with heavy hearts but are comforted knowing he went peacefully, is no longer in pain and has reunited with many family and friends who passed before him.
Louis is predeceased by his parents Jacques and Jeanne Badiou, his son Carmen, his siblings Marcel, Raymond, Gabriel, André, Hubert, John and Lorraine Demare.
Louis was born in Cardinal, Manitoba on October 28, 1944, he was the baby in a family of 11 children. Lou grew up on the family farm in Deerwood and in his early adult years settled in Treherne, and was ultimately blessed with the birth of his son Carmen and daughter Leah. Years later, living in Winnipeg as a Certified Welder, Lou started his own welding business and later went on to become a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Local 555. He worked on boilers and welding projects across Canada. Eventually, Lou met and married Jeannette, and soon became a father-figure to her twin teenage boys, Ronald and Donald. They spent many happy years together, until Jay sadly lost her battle with cancer. Shortly into his retirement, Lou met Donna, and his life changed overnight. He once again found himself to be an instant Dad to yet four more kids, Amanda, Cody, Jolene and Emily. What a wonderful impact he had on our lives. Lou was such a loving, caring and thoughtful man. We are very thankful to have been blessed with his love and presence in our lives.
