Carl passed at his home, surrounded by his family, on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 in his 79th year. Son of the late Leo and Irene (nee Masterson) Gauthier.  Beloved husband of Mel Gauthier of Belleville.  Loving father of Nicole (Jason) Simpson of Belleville, Dan (Alicia) Gauthier of Barrie and Tim (Mary) Gauthier of Amherstview. Proud grandfather of Jack and Tom Simpson, Lauren and Will Gauthier and Emma and Sophie Gauthier.  Carl is survived by his two sisters, Phyllis Gauthier and Marion Hunt (the late Robert) both of Belleville.  He will be remembered by Mel’s family, several nieces and nephews as well as extended family.  Carl was a kind and generous man.  He had great compassion for those less fortunate, especially children.  He was devoted to his Catholic faith as well as being a great hockey fan.  The family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 7, at the Steele Funeral Home, 30 Moira Street West (613-968-2273) from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Church, 399 Victoria Ave., Belleville on Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 11:00 am.  Interment to follow at St. James Cemetery. The family express their gratitude to the VON nurses, Paramed and Dr. David Ademidun for taking such great, loving care of him. If desired, Memorial Donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Belleville, Chalice or the Belleville General Hospital Foundation (oncology)  would be a fitting tribute to Carl’s memory.
