Our dad was a loving and compassionate husband to our Mom, was a great caretaker for his mother and his son, David. He encouraged his children through their our personal ambitions and was proud of their accomplishments. He was a devoted member of his community and church, always available when needed whether it be passing out lunches to the elderly for the Meals on Wheels, helping to prepare funeral lunch meals, or painting at the church during renovations to name a few. Dad started out his work career making cedar potato barrels for the Paradis Brothers in Frenchville for a few years, then worked for Fraser Paper for many years in the Bond Shipping Dept. He will be remembered for his elaborate Christmas displays at his home which became known as the Gingerbread House. We will always remember the huge Christmas star attached to the chimney that came tumbling down with the chimney on a stormy windy night. He was an avid snowmobiler and ATV rider and was involved in both clubs. Back in the Day, He was member of the Frenchville Cross Country Ski Club. Our family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Ridgewood Estates, our little angels, for their devoted care and compassions for our Dad. He loved you all and we admire all of you especially during his last few days. You shared our tears and our joy during his stay at Ridgewood.
