Obituary of Sylvain Roy

August 16, 1970 - June 14, 2024

It's with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of Sylvain on June 14th, 2024, at the age of 53 years old.

Sylvain is survived by his wife LeeAnn, children, Abigail, Ava, Kolby, Nicholas, and Julianne. His mother Patricia McCarthy, brother Karl McCarthy (Rena), sister Jessica MacNeill (James), sister & brother-in-law Kim and Reg Piercey, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends that were like family. Sylvain was predeceased by his fathers Marcel Roy (1972) and James McCarthy (2018).

Sylvain was a graduate of Kennebecasis Valley High School in 1989.  He then worked in the trades as a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters union in both New Brunswick and Alberta, leading him to a rewarding career in safety management in the oil and gas industry.  He had a passion for carpentry, and could be called a 'jack of all trades'. Sylvain was a hardworking, loving, devoted husband, father, and son. He loved to talk, and could strike up a conversation with anybody, especially when the conversations were about the Oilers or Patriots. His strength and love will be forever remembered.

A celebration of Sylvain’s life will be held at a later date. Cremation entrusted to Memories Funeral Home, Alberta. Condolences may be made at Kennebecasis Funeral Home. 

Donations can be made to an organization of your choosing in his memory.
