Laurence Mellis BUREAU

Laurence Mellis Bureau, 52, of Calgary, AB, lost his courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by his family on July 10, 2019. Laurence was born in Roodepoort, South Africa on November 23, 1966.

Laurence is survived by his partner Stephanie Mercredi, daughters Brittany (Josh) Bureau and Lauren (James) Bureau, mother Ina (Lawrence) Bureau, brothers Duncan (Larissa) Bureau and Gordon (Sadida) Bureau, sister Jacqueline Bureau, Stepmother Louise Bureau and several nieces and nephews. Laurence was predeceased by his father Larry Bureau.

Laurence was a loving father, spouse, and friend to all. He enjoyed and excelled in sports and played baseball, badminton and any other sport he could do in his spare time. He also enjoyed cooking, model cars, watching sports and World War II planes. Laurence had a heart larger than life and was always there to help friends or family with whatever they needed. He had a passion for life and embraced it everyday. 

He will be missed by the hundreds of people whose lives he impacted over his years though sport and family. 

The Family will be having a Private Celebration of Laurence’s Life.
