Danielle and family and J.P.’ Brother’s family as well.

My condolences to you all. You will miss him terribly, but just think of all the good memories you still have to remember him by. I know what your all going through, but it gets better with time. You will remember the good times, and smile and laugh again.

We will also miss seeing him at the cottage which he loved so much, but we will remember he is in a better place now.

Danielle and your family

I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. He taught me at Thomas D’Arcy McGee way back when…and then it was I who took his special needs class over when he retired…I’ll never forget as he put on his backpack and took one last look around his classroom and said…
”I’m done here…Good Luck…I’m going to the cottage” and walked out the back door.
I watched him go as he had a happy step in his pace…and I thought to myself…that will be me one day! Farewell Mr. Meunier…you were a good man!

Danielle Meunier

Dear Danielle and family,

J.P. was a valued colleague, much respected, much loved by all. His distinctive voice and expansive persona defined the person he was. A joy to have known him and worked with him.

This wonderful foto of J.P. captures his delightful sense of mischief.

Very sad news to learn of J.P.s untimely passing. We send our most sincere condolences to you, the family, & his many friends.

In sympathy,

Paul Schaub & Gerard Lavelle

The Meunier Family

Saddened to hear of the passing of ‘Mr Meunier’. As a shy Grade 6 student, who arrived at TDMcGee halfway through the year in late 1972, Mr. Meunier’s kindness & support made my transition to a new city & a new school so much easier. His love of teaching was in full evidence & we all loved his quick laughter & positive outlook ❤️ God bless!

J.P. Meunier

I very much enjoyed working with JP for 5 years at T.D. McGee. He was most skillful and understanding of students with special needs, especially those with challenging behaviour problems. JP assumed big portfolios such as student busing. My job as principal was was made so much easier with such a competent assistant.

Sincere sympathy to you on the loss of JP.
I had the privilege of working with JP at TDM from 1978-86. There are so many wonderful memories of him including his welcoming smile, his infectious laugh, his willingness to listen and to give sage advice. His office door was always open. He was my first encounter with Bonhomme and the TDM winter carnival.
JP was our oldest son’s grade 4 teacher. Rob’s quote: ‘always fondly remember Friday afternoon reads, sometimes Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books or similar imaginative reads. He was my first male teacher.’
I am thankful that at the 50th anniversary of TDM we had a chance to reminisce and share good remembrances with JP.
May you too be consoled by happy remembrances.

My sincere condolences to JP's Family . I started my teaching career at Thomas D'Arcy McGee in 1984 and JP was a great mentor to me. He was a great person to work with. My sympathies to you all. Sincerely, Michael E. Keeler

Danielle and Family

I spent many years (20+) teaching with JP. To say he was one of the best is an understatement. His ability to connect with his Special Ed students was remarkable. Not only the students but the parents too. I remember him coming in for a 6:00am interview because of the work hours of one set of parents. He was so grounded, had SO much common sense and didn't suffer fools. That, to me, was his gift and the reason he was such a good teacher. And let's not forget that wicked sense of humour! Oh my. If I say the word "cheese", many of you will know exactly what I mean.
Mr. Moonie, I will miss you so much and I thank you for the many wonderful memories!

Mes sympathies à la famille, bon courage!
De ma part je ne perds pas seulement un oncle, mais aussi un bon ami. Les étés ne seront plus pareil, mais je gardes de très beau moment ensembles sur le bord du lac. Tu vas me manquer. Ton chum Pierre.
