Nous regrettons de vous annoncer le décès de René Payant le samedi 27 avril 2019 à l’Hôpital Sensenbrenner à l'âge de 74 ans. Comme passe-temps, il aimait faire de la chasse, la pêche, la menuiserie, travailler le bois à La Forge, jouer de la guitare, et regarder le hockey – surtout les Canadiens de Montréal.

Il laisse dans le deuil ses enfants : Marcel (Marie-Josée Couture), Sylvie (Leonard Bowes) tous de Kapuskasing, et Mélanie Leblanc (Guy) de Timmins; six petits-enfants: Sabrina, Véronique, Cynthia, Genève, Yanik, et Éric; une arrière-petite-fille : Amelia; trois sœurs : Annette Elliot, Paulette Rousseau, et Hélène Germain; ainsi que plusieurs neveux et nièces. Il fut prédécédé par son épouse, Louise; ses parents : Paul et Marguerite Payant; deux frères : Gaëtan et Léo Payant; et trois sœurs : Jeannette Melbourne, Dolores Marien, et Lise Carrière.

René Payant reposera au Salon Funéraire Guenette le vendredi 3 mai à partir de 10h00. La Célébration Eucharistique suivra à 11h00 dans la chapelle du salon funéraire avec Père Fernand Villeneuve comme célébrant. Comme témoignage de sympathie, la famille sera reconnaissante des dons au Fonds pour l’achat d’un tomodensitomètre pour l’Hôpital Sensenbrenner. ©
