It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Jules age 69 on November 6, at home, with his loving wife of 48 years, Michele (DeCourcy). Adored father to Nicole (Pattyn) and Kevin Lefebvre, Robert and Cheryl (Shipley) Pattyn, and Jules and Sarah (Cabral) Pattyn. He was a proud grandfather aka “Papa” to Sophie, Andre and Margot Lefebvre, Brittany, Matthew, and Ethan Pattyn, Isabella and Olivia Pattyn. Born in London Ontario, he was the beloved son of Robert Pattyn (predeceased) and Jeannine Pattyn, and dear brother to Linda (Pattyn) and Ronald Vandendriessche, Juliana (Pattyn) and David Marr, Mary Ann (Pattyn) and Steven Montour, and Emil and Debbie (Christie) Pattyn. Predeceased by brother Robert Pattyn Jr. in France. He was cherished by his mother and father-in-law Joseph DeCourcy and Maureen (McCabe) (predeceased). Much loved brother-in-law to MaryJo DeCourcy and Gord Patterson (predeceased) and Paulette DeCourcy and Don McGillawee. He will be missed by his nephews and their families, and all his extended family here in Canada and in France.
Jules was a hard-working man and was dedicated to his passion as a Landscaper his entire life. He proudly worked alongside his two sons, who together, created their successful company, PLS. Underneath his tough exterior, Jules was a kind man always willing to lend a hand or give someone an opportunity with an honest job. Although spending time on his tractor in his sod fields and moving dirt around with a backhoe were some of his favourite pastimes, he loved nothing more than spending time with his family. When not on his tractor, he and Michele loved to travel together and spent many vacations with their children, family and friends. These trips will be fond memories for all of us.
