Henry Chiasson, 81, formerly of Lakeside Estate, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 5th 2008 at the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont Hospital.
Born in Dalhousie, NB, on October 13th, 1926, his family later resided in Rogersville.
He was the son of the late Antime Chiasson and the late Bernadette Chiasson, both of Caraquet.
For the last seven months of his illness, he resided with his niece Angela. We give thanks to God for such a kind and gentle man. He was a Christian and every night before falling asleep, his niece Angela would read to him a different passage from the Bible. He had a passion for music, when his strength permitted, he would play the fiddle, the piano or share with us numerous stories about his youth.
He is survived by one son, Terry (Bonnie); two grandchildren as well as by several nieces and nephews.
He was the last surviving member of his immediate family having been pre-deceased by two brothers: Léo and Alfred and also by two sisters: Délima and Yvonne.
