RENE JOSEPH BERRIAULT passed away suddenly on July 25, 2020.

He was born October 10 1938 in Saint Boniface, Manitoba. Rene lived in Nobleford in the company of his favorite canine companions, where they travelled together, went to the lake, went to the Tailor Shop, and went sightseeing across Southern Alberta.

Rene was the proud owner of The Tailor Shop- a job from which he retired from over 10 years ago. Having learned and perfected his trade throughout his youth in Montreal, Rene sought to offer each of his client’s the perfect suit, proudly stating the slogan “You don’t wear it unless it fits!” The combination of his joyful disposition and his dedication to making a quality product left many customers happy. He loved his occupation.

He leaves behind his much-loved daughter Tobey, who works overseas in the field of international peace and security. He also leaves behind Mary-Ann, his business partner. Rene will be sadly missed by Tobey and Mary-Ann.

A celebration of life will be held with close friends and family.
