CWO Fernand Brulotte, CD (Ret’d)
We regret to advise of the death of Chief Warrant Officer Fernand “Fern” Brulotte, CD (Ret’d) on Sunday, 24 October 2020 at the Hull, QC Hospital.
Fern grew up in a small Quebec Eastern Township village in a family with seven siblings. Joining the Army in 1960, he had a full and successful military career as an Electrician and a Construction Maintenance Technician. Fern’s service included deployment on United Nations Peacekeeping. Fern retired from the Canadian Forces in 1987 as a Chief Warrant Officer after 27 years of service.
Fern was a leader, soldier, peace-keeper, family man, athlete, hunter, fisher, news-junkie, handy-man, and ham radio operator under the call letters VE2 ZV. He faced health challenges with courage.
Fern’s funeral will be held with military honours on 7 November 2020 at 10:30 AM at the Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa ON. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, participation is by invitation only. A Celebration of Life will be held as soon as restrictions on gatherings are lifted. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Legion Poppy Fund would be appreciated.
