Date of Passing: Nov 04, 2023Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
With broken hearts, we share the passing of Stefane Gravelle; beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, mentor and friend. Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Stef passed away November 4, 2023 at the age of 53 while undergoing cancer treatment at Ottawa General Hospital.
Stefane appreciated all the great friends and colleagues he worked with during his 30-year career serving Manitobans. One favourite friend and colleague summed it up well when they said, "you must know that the reach of his goodness is immeasurable and it will go on and on in all the lives he has positively impacted, including mine." Most know that Stef’s goodness was complemented by his strong faith in God. A celebration of Stefane’s life will be held at McDiarmid Drive Alliance Church, 635 McDiarmid Drive, Brandon, on Saturday, November 25, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. For those unable to attend, we invite you to watch the livestream of the service by visiting Stefane’s tribute page at www.brockiedonovan.com.
The family would like thank friends and Stefane’s health care team who were so very supportive during the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Stefane’s memory to: the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation - Westman Cancer Care Center, 150 McTavish Ave., Brandon, MB, R7A 2B3, or to Samaritan House Ministries Food Bank & Resource Centre, 820 Pacific Ave., Brandon, MB, R7A 0J1, or a charity of choice.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
April Joseph and Ann, I am so very sorry to hear of Stefane’ s passing. I last talked to him just after he returned to work, not about work just a chat. That was what was so special about Stefane, his ability to connect with people. Even years after the children were no longer in the centre, when we chatted it was like no time had passed. Even when the phone calls started as “ business “ they always ended on catch up, thoughts on the state of the world, concerns and fun things, like when he took up the ukulele and convinced me to try. I can only begin to imagine how hard this is for you all. Stefane was a special man. - Posted by: Lorraine McConnell (Centre Director ) on: Nov 19, 2023
