LCdr David Poirrier Military Memorial Service

Brunssum, the Netherlands – On Thursday, 1st of August 2019, a formal Military Memorial Service was held at the Monuta Uitvaartcentrum in Kerkrade, Netherlands,  to honor the life of Royal Canadian Navy Lieutenant-Commander (LCdr) David Poirrier.  He was the loving husband of LCdr Kim Poirrier (J4).  Deeply mourned by daughters Kassandra and Jamie Poirrier.

LCdr David Poirrier joined JFC Brunssum in February 2019.  Sadly, he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on July 25, 2019 at the age of 57.

A talented musician committed to community service, he enjoyed sailing, jogging, spending time with his family and the continuous pursuit of professional development. 

Family, friends and JFC Brunssum colleagues came together and assisted in a beautiful ceremony filled with emotions where personal messages and memories of LCdr Poirrier were shared.

General Erhard Bühler, Commander JFC Brunssum, addressed the audience and underlined that LCdr Poirrier was a valuable member of the headquarters.

Our heartfelt condolences and thoughts are extended to his family and friends during this difficult time.
