granddaughter, Lexie O’Keefe; his three sisters: Anna Goguen (Jean-Paul), Aline Dallaire (Roger), and Fernande Maillet (Yvon); his two brothers: Alfred (Chong) and Guy (Simonne); as well as his three stepsons: Michael, Ronnie, and Jason Couillard.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Léo (2023) and his sister, Edna Leblanc (Gordon) (1974).

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of the ICU and Palliative Care Unit of the Moncton Hospital for their professional services. Also, to the staff at the Bénaise in St-Antoine, where he resided since November.
