On behalf of my father Guy Miron and the Miron family in Montreal, we wish to express our sincere condolences to the whole family.
We have beautiful childhood memories of our visits at uncle Hubert and tante Madeleine's house, enjoying the pool, the music and laughter. And now, he is with his loving wife.
May he rest in peace.

Dear Diane, Richard and Families,
We offer our condolences for the loss of your dad. He was such a special man and we all feel the sadness of his death. He was a great big brother to our dad, Gerard. He always welcomed us with open arms when we visited you from Peterborough. Whether it was a scheduled visit or a drop in passing through Cornwall. He took the time when we were young to come all the way to Peterborough and bring us to Cornwall and took us to Expo 67 in Montreal...memories etched in us forever. My mom enjoyed their weekly telephone conversations these last few years and will miss his cheery voice. Please know we all our thinking of you and you are in our prayers..rest in peace Uncle Hubert xo Margaret, Louise, Sam, and Loretta
