Louis Couvillion

COUVILLION: Louis passed peacefully after a short battle with cancer, on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at WRH Metropolitan Campus at 74 years of age. Beloved husband of Gail (nee Mayea) for 48 years. Proud and loving Dad of Louis Jr. (Liz Sampogna), Jason (Maryann Policella), Christine, Kevin and Mark. Dearest Papa of 13 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Dear son of the late Wallace and Margaret Couvillion. Brother of Stanley (Judy), Barbara, Diane (Phil), Frank (Cheryl), Larry (Gidget), Gary and Lori. Son-in-law of the late Bernard and Marion Mayea and brother-in-law of Dave (Janis) and Wayne (Norina). Louis will also be remembered by the Bennett's, his large extended family, his nieces, nephews and many friends. He was a long time member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 201, Essex. He retired from the Heat and Frost Insulators Union after more than 30 years of service. After retirement, Louis and Gail enjoyed 17 winters in the south, along with travelling the country, where they made many new friends and memories. He enjoyed any time spent on the golf course, and out on his boat fishing. He will be forever remembered for his sense of humour and his practical jokes. The family would like to thank all of the medical staff at the W.R.C.C. for their care and kindness. Also, the palliative care unit at WRH Metropolitan Campus and especially, his V.O.N. nurse, Vicki Allison.
