He will be missed by many nieces and nephews. Aurel worked at the Canada Veneers for 35 years. He was a quiet man of few words. He was an avid Bingo player, they nicknamed him “Bingo”. He enjoyed our Sunday visits, especially with his grandchildren and his little great-granddaughter Abbie. He loved playing the fiddle with his brother Rhéal, he loved his family very much and will be sadly missed. Our beautiful mother, Madeleine, took care of him all those years. She didn’t have wings, but she certainly is our angel. Funeral service will be held in St. Alphonsus Church, 7 Notre Dame Street, Chapeau, Quebec On Friday, June 28th at 2 pm. followed by interment in the parish cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Pembroke Regional Hospital or the Pontiac Community Hospital would be appreciated.
