It is with great sadness that the companion and family of Pierre Wust announces his passing Thursday, January 10, 2019, at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital following complications from Multiple Sclerosis. He was born in Strasbourg, France on April 22, 1960.
Pierre is survived by his companion of 18 years Chantal Cormier, son Thomas Wust (Christy) of Magnolia, Arkansas, by his sister Brigitte Haag (Denis) and his niece Julia of Strasbourg, France. Pierre will also be forever remembered by his extended family and friends in France. Pierre was predeceased by his wife Hélène Dubé-Wust and parents Charles Jacques Wüst and Caroline Wüst (Eyer).
When Pierre first arrived in Canada he worked at Research and Productivity Council in Fredericton and a later career change to a Registered Massage Therapist of which he was very proud. Shortly before his passing Pierre worked at Myoflex Massage and Rejuvenation Clinic; his illness forced him to stop working as an RMT at the end of 2017. However, he continued to be employed at Myoflex until his passing.
Pierre will be remembered for his dedication and involvement with the Association of New Brunswick Massage Therapists. He also played a major role in the development and recognition of the massage therapy profession. Prior to being limited by his MS Pierre was an avid dancer and someone who loved to be active walking and cycling.
A Celebration of Life will be held to remember and celebrate Pierre’s life. The gathering will take place at McAdam’s Funeral Home located at 160 York Street, Fredericton on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. A private interment will take place at a later date in Fredericton. For those who wish, memorial tributes may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada (Atlantic), DECH Foundation or United Way Central N.B.
