Dad loved working outside, cutting wood, tinkering in the shop and spending his time volunteering for his community. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix and nothing he couldn’t do! Dad also enjoyed making memories traveling, camping and spending time at the hunting camp in Woodridge. Most of Dad’s family and friends knew him as ‘’Red’’ or ‘’Le Rouge’’. He was known for his great sense of humor and ‘’ses farces plates’’! Most of all, Dad loved spending time with Mom, his grandkids, his family and friends. We will all miss him, forever!
Funeral mass will be held on Friday, September 24, 2021, at 2:00 pm at the Ste. Anne Roman Catholic Church. Everyone welcome or join the family via live stream www.paroissesteanne.ca
