Pierre F. Dubé
We are profoundly saddened by the passing of the Honourable Pierre F. Dubé on Saturday, September 11, 2021. Pierre was loved by many people, and his three main loves were his girls, his wife Heather (Murray), his two beautiful daughters Sasha (Kris) and Breanna (Mark) and of course his two dogs Heidi and Willow.
Pierre was predeceased by his father Fernand Dubé. He was a proud big brother to Jean (Johanne), France and Anik (Mathieu). He also leaves his mother Monique (Maltais), father-in-law Ron Murray and Elizabeth (Armstrong), his brother-in-law and sister in-law, Mike Murray and Amy Mooers (Morten) and of course his nieces and nephews, Alexandra and Nicholas Dubé, Jordan and Liam Babcock, Jacob and Emma Allain, Emma and Lily Murray and Keaton and Bishop Mooers.
Pierre practised law in Campbellton serving people from all walks of life. He provided the same care and attention to those of little means as he would for his most affluent clients. He never hesitated to act as a friend of the court providing pro bono service to those who required his help. He never showed animosity towards opposing counsel; to the contrary, he guided young lawyers and provided great support to them. For the past 17 years, Pierre served as a judge of the provincial court of New-Brunswick. He initially served in Campbellton and most recently in fredericton. He presided over criminal trials, in both official languages, in all parts of the province. His career on the bench was marked by a keen intellect coupled with sound common sense. In more recent years, he mentored and guided new appointees to the court, providing them with sage counsel and advice. He will be sadly missed by all his colleagues.
Upon returning to Fredericton where he studied at St. Thomas and UNB, he continued his career as a Judge until he passed. His favourite pastime was spent with family and friends and he loved to prepare a beautiful meal. If you were lucky he would offer some of his freshly baked bread.
Pierre loved his home in Campbellton, and particularly loved his cottage on the Restigouche. He loved to travel there on the weekends and spend it on the river with his children and wife and then dog, Scorpie.
Summers in Fredericton were recently spent at Grand Lake where he loved to drink his coffee in the morning, look at the lake and end off the day by the fire, listening to music and looking at the lake.
Pierre you will be missed and never forgotten. We love you and will cheers you by the fire.
