Dunlop, NB – Joseph Jacob Daniel “Danny” Thibodeau, 57, of Miramichi, passed away suddenly at home, on Friday December 20, 2019.
Born in Bathurst, he was the son of Verna (Boucher) Thibodeau and the late Donat Thibodeau.
Daniel, affectionately known as “Danny”, was in the military for 3 years, then began his career with the Atlantic Canadian Corrections Facility in Renous. Danny was our family clown, loved to make people laugh, usually until they cried. He loved animals, wild or domestic and was fond of his 2 cats and his chickens. He also loved boating and fishing and took every opportunity to do so. You could also find him in his backyard garden where he loved to plant and grow unusual gourds & squashes just to prove he could. He was a man with a heart that was kind to a fault, was always ready to lend a helping hand and most of all he loved his family and spent as much time with them as possible. He was a member of NBAPC local 15.
Besides his mother, he is survived by four brothers: Robert (Teresa) of Winnipeg, MB, Jean-Marc (Debbie) of Shediac, Richard (Lisette) of Petit-Rocher and Michel (Angie) of Germany.
Four sisters: Mary Lee Howe (Earl) of Miramichi, Joan Wheeler of Dunlop, Linda Thibodeau (Jimmy Chiasson) of Beresford and Annette Thibodeau Haché (Roland) both of Bathurst.
Sister-in-law, Shirley Thibodeau of Dunlop.
Many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
