In Memory Of BORDET, Alexandre


No service
It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of my beloved father, Alexandre Bordet, his joie de vivre will be dearly missed by all who knew him, family, friends and colleagues.
Alex was born in St.Vincent, Aosta Valley, Italy, after WW2 moved to Melbourne, Australia, then to Montreal, where he studied, invested, worked, and got married. He made many good and loyal friends along the way, he moved us with his life’s adventures and always had some wisdom to partake with a good laugh to share. He had the biggest heart, he was courageous and strong, a pioneer entrepreneur who never gave up, loved nature, travel, culture, people, and his faithful German Shepherds Diana, Diggi I&II, Whiskey I, II & III.
Walked on the Mount-Royal every morning with his dog, brunchs and hot tub with poolside laughter, loved swimming and biking, would bicycle from Montreal to Vermont and back, loved to ski Jay, St.Sauveur, Matterhorn, Plateau Rosa, swam or sailed in every ocean, walked on nearly every continent, climbed many mountains, met beautiful people, was part of the world, was real, gave of himself, believed in the essence of happiness and shared it.
He was loved, we will miss him more than words can ever say. My dear dear daddy, I will always love you.
He is survived by his daughter Daniella, (Marie-Claude), his brother Marco (Stella), his niece Sara (Fabrizio), his nephew Loris, Simone and Gabriele. All his friends near and far who also miss and loved him very much, Fergus, Paul, Caroline, Steve, Charles, Robert, Marco, Carmen, Pierre, Claude, Lucette, Christian, Patrick, Genevieve, Raymond, Veronique, Guy, Dodo, Nicole, Isaac, Johanne, Mariette, Claude, Lise, Eric, Melanie, Lize, Hans, Bob, Julien, Mike, Steven, Stephan, George, Claudette, Elizabeth, Armand, Marguerite, too many to list here.
He had fought many hardships during his life, kept healthy and good spirited, worked until 83 yrs old, but the recent pandemic left him defenceless to face an invisible enemy, he truly battled valiantly to survive, now he is with God, may he fly free and high. The love he gave while on this earth, to all living creatures, will be forever cherished, never forgotten. A mass will be celebrated to commemorate his life at the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal, due to the pandemic restrictions, the date will be confirmed once Diocese of Montréal advises. Thank you all, God bless.
Born February 13, 1931, left us April 17, 2020

Chère Daniella
Quelle chance d'avoir eu un père hors pareil comme Alex!
Un homme d'exception, passionné, épicurien et avec qui on a cassé la croûte souvent tout en parlant de voyage et l'idée que tous rêves étaient possibles. Alex , un homme qui m'a inspiré l'idée que j'etait libre de suivre ma voix.
Merci pour ses années d'amitié, et sache qu'avec Daniella on continuera à apprécier tous ce que la vie a à nous offrir.
