Adrien J. Vincent


MISSOULA — Adrien Joseph Vincent passed away of natural causes at home Thursday, June 21, 2018, with his wife, Joann Stewart. She was the love of his life. They spent a great deal of time traveling together and enjoying each other's company. Adrien also lived for music, dancing, socializing and spending time with his family.

Adrien was born April 16, 1928.  Starting in his teens, Adrien worked for the Abitibi Pine Falls Paper Mill for 10 years.  He then followed his boss to the mill in Port Alberni, British Columbia, and eventually made his way to Missoula where he was employed by Stone Container until his retirement in the early 90s. Adrien was proud to have witnessed both the first and last rolls of paper produced at the Frenchtown Mill. He was sad when they closed their doors.

Adrien leaves behind his wife Joann; son Robert (Annie), grandson Alexander (Adelaide); great-granddaughter Jade, and daughters Virginia (Clarence) England of Stevensville, and Pam (Steve) Alexandrovich of Washington, grandchildren, Becky, Tim (Kiersten), Dylan and Kyle; great-grandchildren Sheyenne, Michelle, Zoee and Joselyn.  He also leaves behind siblings, Henry, Rose (Victor) Vincent, Aline (Gordon) Vincent, Thérèse (Ed) Van Humbeck and Odile (Gilles) Dubé.

He was predeceased by his parents, Felix and Denise (nee Wilcott) Vincent, his step-dad Philippe Vincent, his sister Marguerite St. Godard and his first wife Kathleen Martin (mother of his son Robert).

As per Adrien’s wishes, a funeral service was held July 3, 2018 at St-Georges Roman Catholic Church, 17 baie Caron, St-Georges, Manitoba, Canada.

A Celebration of Life was held August 4, 2018, at the Eagles Lodge located at 2420 South Ave. W., Missoula and a reception followed.

Rest in Peace dear Friend.
