A Team to Support and Guide You

Our team is made of professionals who respect our values. Our enterprise as well as its directors are members of the Corporation des Thanatologues du Québec (CTQ).

The Bessette family greatly values the respect of traditions and simplicity while being intent on soothing the grief of those who lost a loved one. We wish to satisfy the expectations of our clientele with humanity in a family environment.

Raymond Bessette

Raymond has over 45 years of experience in the funeral industry. At the start of his career in the field, he combined paramedic and funeral service work for many years. In 2017, he involved his children in the acquisition of the business in order to perpetuate the family tradition. Being semi-retired, Raymond acts as a guide and is a pillar of the enterprise.
