Our father was a true jack of all trades and a proud member of Millwrights Local 1425 for over 50 years.

A special thank you to all the health care professionals who were involved in his care throughout the years. Hopefully, you will remember his smile, his ‘Tank you’, and his strong handshake of appreciation.

Papa, you have taught us the true meaning of devotion and constant love in sickness and in health! Not only did you love Maman unconditionally for 67 years, but you also loved each of us with all our unique personalities. You loved our spouses and the rest of the LeClair clan.  You and Maman are now our two shining stars reunited up above and we know you will be watching over us forever.  Prends Maman dans tes bras et repose en paix cher Papa, Grand-papa, Pépé, tu mérites tes ailes et ton halo. On t’aime!
