community and well known as the village step dancer in his good years.

He is survived by his brothers Rhéal (Huguette), Raoul (Denise), Denis (Claire),

Gilles (Diane), Jacques (Éveline), Claude (Gabrielle) and his special brother

He leaves beautiful memories to his many nieces and nephews, cousins and

friends who had the opportunity to party with him, especially his friends from

A special thank you to all the staff at La Maison Des Collines who knew how to

spoil him, pamper him and comfort us until his very last breath.
