Obituary of Armand Joseph Magnin
Armand Joseph Magnin
(October 18, 1962 - August 5, 2021)
Armand Joseph Magnin of Bawlf, Alberta passed away on Thursday, August 5th, 2021 after battling esophageal cancer. Armand was born on October 18th, 1962 to Joseph and Yvonne Magnin. He grew up in St. Louis, Saskatchewan with two brothers and two sisters. As the middle child, he was always the peacemaker and got along with everyone, but also had a reputation as a quiet troublemaker.
Early in life Armand began a long and successful career in sheet metal work. He was a wonderful father to his two children Stacey and Joey. Armand was ecstatic when he met his future wife Terry and added her children Tessa and Tyler to his family. Grandpa was a very proud title for Armand. He loved being silly with his grandchildren Ainsley and Max and spoiling them with gadgets.
Armand’s life was full of family, friends, and fun. He enjoyed camping and travelling to tropical destinations where he was always up for adventure. Armand loved socializing and being involved in his community. His favourite activities were playing sports and games with his family, helping neighbours with renovation projects, and having poker games with his many friends.
Armand enjoyed 21 happy years with his wife Terry before losing her to cancer in 2019. He was lovingly at her side for every step.
Almost a year later, Armand was lucky enough to find love again and during his own battle with cancer he had Melody, a caring and beautiful partner at his side.
Armand had a sparkle in his eye and a bounce in his step that will be missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
Left to cherish his memory are his children Stacey (Oliver) Brasnett of Red Deer and Joey Magnin of Camrose; step-children Tessa Lindballe (Tricia Cameron) of Camrose and Tyler Lindballe (Carlie Young) of Camrose; partner Melody Terrill of Beaumont; Melody’s children Tessa (Derek) and Chelsea (Cutter); mother Yvonne; two grandchildren; and siblings Rita (Gerald) Gareau of St. Louis, Saskatchewan, Emile Magnin (Cheryl Weger) of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Allan Magnin (Jen Nordick) of Allan, Saskatchewan, and Janet Cristo of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Armand was predeceased by his wife Terry, father Joe, and sister Mona Magnin.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, August 13, 2021 from the CityLights Church (4920 48 Street Camrose) with Rev. Clayton Milgate officiating. Interment has taken place in the New Norway Cemetery.
