  16. I was very saddened to hear of Réjean’s passing. My heart goes out to his sweet wife Della, his daughter, grand daughter, mother, as well to all his siblings whom I’ve gotten to know over the years, especially my dear old friend Donna. Please accept my sincerest sympathy on this terrible loss. When I picture Réjean, I first picture him on his tractor mowing his perfectly groomed large lawn. Growing up, I was his neighbour, and I swear my brother and I felt the pressure from our parents to try and keep a good manicured lawn because we knew how Réjean took such good pride in his property. I also remember meeting him countless times walking up the road after supper. During those regular walks, my mother and I would often have the friendliest, most positive, small chats with him. I also remember always being greeted with that contagious kind smile of his during those walks, even when I was zooming by as a reckless teenager. I will always remember him as a very kind soul. Wishing you all loving memories to forever hold in your heart.

  17. Sympathies à toutes les familles, spécialement à sa mère Francine, son épouse et sa fille.

  18. Della, Natasha, Danny, and Elyse, I worked with Rejean at Gentek, he was a kind and gentle person with a big heart. He gave his time to help me build a deck and several other projects we worked on together. He always had a smile and liked to whistle while he worked. Anytime my wife called at work and he answered the phone he enjoyed tormenting her. We will miss him very much.

    Pierrette and Roy (Former co-workers at the glass factory)
