Romeo was born on May 20, 1952, in St. Claude, the son of Andrew and Josephine (Dumas) Morisseau. He was raised on a farm north of Haywood, Manitoba and went to school in Haywood and St Claude. He met the love of his life Louise in the 1970’s and they were married on October 26, 1974. He raised his family on the homestead farm, where he lived for the rest of his life. He worked at various construction jobs, Ellwood McRorie, Can-Oat Milling and Cobbe’s Plumbing and Heating. Romeo was always building and creating with his wife Louise, but their greatest creation was their children and grandchildren. Romeo was always willing to help anyone in any situation, whether it involved construction, mechanical problems or any complication that came along. He was a hard-working man and very kind-hearted. He retired a couple years before his passing, although he still found time to take up projects and helped the people close to him. Romeo enjoyed fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, camping, and spending special times with family throughout his whole life. Since retiring, he spent a lot of time with his best friend Ron and various side projects with his close friend Terry. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him, and his hardworking hands are at rest. There will be a celebration of life held at a later date.
