How I enjoyed working with Brad at Central back in the 70's never a dull moment. I also was lucky enough to have attended Fire Science classes with Brad as well. Rest in peace my friend.

Fathers Day is a day we celebrate our fathers for they have done for their families. Today I celebrate Alcide, He was a husband, a father and a friend to many, to me he was a hero. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago and under that grumpy exterior was a teddy bear, over the years his grumble turned to laughter. I will always cherish my visits to his house. He made me a better man and for that I cant thank him enough. Joan I heart felt sympathies go out to you and your family.. I toast you Alcide Dupile a hero in my eyes forever...
