Sgt Pierre Morisot, CD
We regret to advise of the death of Sergeant Pierre Morisot suddenly and unexpectedly from natural causes on 1 July 2015 at the age of 37. Sgt Morisot was a Construction Technician at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering.
Sgt Pierre Morisot joined the Army Reserves in November 1999 as a Combat Engineer. His civilian career brought him to Quebec City where he joined the ranks of 10th Field Squadron. He transferred to the Regular Force and the Construction Technician trade in December 2001. After completing his Qualification Level 3 training in 2003 Pierre was posted to Area Support Unit Edmonton with the Construction Engineers. In 2005 he was posted to 1 Combat Engineer Regiment and attended his Qualification Level 5 course where he was awarded the Top Student Award. Upon return to his unit, Pierre undertook the challenge of completing the Mountain Man Challenge where he completed this 52 km race in seven hours. In 2007 he was posted to Cold Lake and deployed the following year to Afghanistan to Camp Mirage. In 2011, he returned to Afghanistan for his second tour and was promoted to Sergeant. Upon his return from this deployment he was posted to the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering. At CFSME he was first an instructor, then a section commander in the Construction Engineer Section before he moved on to the school’s Standards Section.
