To my dear friend. It certainly has been a long, hard journey for you and your family. I was trying to think of my earliest memory of Francois and strange enough it is his spaghetti sauce that he would send home with you when we were in college. I never had sauce with carrots in it before. Francois was a thoughtful and generous friend and we will miss him. I am here for you whenever you need me. You know the number.
Dear Family of François,
I am a friend of Linda’s. Linda has spoken to me so often about François that I feel as if I knew him. I am with you all in this hour of pain and sorrow.
De tout cœur avec toi, Linda, Que son âme repose en Paix. 🙏🏻
Mes Sympathies à la famille 🙏🏻
So many fond memories of Francois comes flooding in. He was a good man, loved his family and friends. He took pride in maintaining a beautiful lawn, that was the envy of the neighbours. We enjoyed chatting with him while he was outdoors. Nothing animated him like discussing politics! We went to him for advice when things went wrong in the house and he always found time for us. Rest In Peace dear Francois!
We are so very sorry for your loss. Please accept our sympathies, May he rest peacefully.
Nous offrons nos plus sincères condoléances à Roula, Georgette, Temis et toutes leurs familles pour le décès de François.
Bon courage à tous.
To Roula, Georgette, Themis and all your families please accept our sincere condoléances.

C’est avec beaucoup de tristesse que j’ai appris la nouvelle du décès de François Goulet. Nous avons pendant de nombreuses années fait partie de la même équipe ministérielle et j’ai ainsi eu l’occasion d’admirer ses nombreuses qualités : sa discrétion, son honnêteté, son dévouement pour ses supérieurs et ses nombreux collègues, sa sincérité et sa perspicacité. Tout simplement, un homme respectable et respecté qui nous manquera beaucoup. Toute mes sympathies à son épouse et a ses enfants ainsi qu’à sa large famille.
C’est avec beaucoup de tristesse que j’écris ces mots. François était un ami, un confident et un collègue de travail durant plusieurs années. Je pouvais compter sur lui dans les bons moments autant que dans les plus difficiles. Il était un ami fidèle, sincère et d’une grande bonté. Un homme de famille. Une personne qui ne laisse que du positif sur son passage. On dit que lorsqu’une personne disparaît, elle continue de vivre dans nos souvenirs.
Je vous souhaites du courage pour traverser cette épreuve.
Pour la famille Goulet et spécialement Normand et Rachelle:
C’est avec tristesse que nous avons appris décès de Francois et voulons vous offrir nos plus sincères condoléances. Nous vous souhaitons du courage pendant cette période difficile. Que les nombreux souvenirs que vous avez créés ensemble soient une consolation dans les jours à venir.
Been a family friend for more than 30 years my family is very sad and my heart is hurting.
Franshua was a loving and caring person for everyone especially for his family. A hard working and alwayes there for anyone in need.
I will miss you my dear friend and will always be in my thoughs and will miss the chance to go fishing with you or golf but when i do i will know you there too.
My deepest sympathies to Roula, Georgette and Themi.
Our sincerest condolences to you and your family.
A la famille de François,
No one deserves to be sick and François certainly did not deserve this fate… He was a kind man and I will always remember him with fondness. Je pense à vous tous.

Everything Francois did, he did the right way, from being a great husband, father and friend. He is, and will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him. God’s speed, old friend.

Its with a heavy heart that I write a farewell to my good friend Francois. I spent more time with Francois than anyone in the 13 years I served in Ottawa, We were together while I served in cabinet and while I was Leader of the party. We always joked that we couldn’t live without each other. The truth is he was a loyal friend to me and knew what needed to be done to keep me safe and successful in my job. He was a friend, a confidant and a protector. He was an honest, decent and kind person. He always showed compassion in how he treated people and his integrity always shined through. He stood up for what was right and spoke out if something was wrong. He was there for me at some of the most difficult times in my life as a true friend. I will miss him dearly and think of him often with his wonderful, kind smile. When my family visited me in ottawa they fell in love with Francois and still talk about his kindness. My husband JP relied on Francois as a friend and cared a lot for him, they loved to joke around and JP nicknamed him “Frank the tank” 🙂 one of the best memories JP has was when he took Francois to a Boston Bruins game bc it was his favourite team. They had a ball. Its hard to explain how much he meant to me. I have been thinking of him so much lately and had plans to come visit in the fall. And now its too late:( I’m sorry my friend. I will be thinking of you as you find your place with your parents. We will see one another again one day and have a good laugh and cry. Love you so much, Rona Ambrose
