So Sorry For Your Lost
Cousin Mike was always fondly looked up, whenever my cousins and I were with him at Uncle Roland Farm or at the river. My cousins and our families, (Gaumont's, Doucet's, Gagnon's Arsenault's, and Demer's, sometime up to 40 of us would spend our early childhood summers vacations down at the river below Uncle's farm. It was always a treat to see Mike and his horse King come down to visit, swim. picnic, and sing late into the evening..
Peace Mike, a life well lived.

Betty, Bonnie-Lynne, 'Little Mike' and Brad.

We are deeply saddened . Our hearts and prayers are with you.
Our families shared some good times together. I grew up with Mike and have lots of great memories of our school days at Lamoureux, playing hockey, having fun with our friends during our teens and our hunting trips. When we were younger I remember staying over at Roland & Josephine's and in the evenings the guitars would come out while we sang to Johnny Horton tunes. Mike always had that great infectious laugh and would giggle like crazy when the kids piled on and tickled him.
Mike will always be in our memories.

Ray Gaumont and Family.

Mike had a smile and a laugh that could light up the world and was so contagious. Over the years he has been nothing but kind and loving to myself and my family, and has been a wonderful friend to my grandfather who adored him.
Mike will forever be remembered, cherished and loved beyond measure.

Love,

Melissa and Brandon
