It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Brother Hubert Sutton after a long and courageous fight with cancer.

Hubert passed peacefully today (February 22) at his home in Bishops Falls surrounded by his loving family. Hubert survived by his wife Sandra and his sons Shawn and Allan and his daughter Mary-Lou.

Hubert was a long time NAPE activist, serving as an Employee Relations Officer (ERO) since 1973. Hubert retired in January 2015 with over 40 years of dedicated service to workers across this province. He was passionate about the union movement, family, fishing, and hunting.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been made; we will post the details once they are set.

Please join us in passing along our sincerest condolences to his family.

Hubert is gone but he has left an indelible mark on our province, our union and the many people he fought for and represented over the years. He will not be forgotten.
