Besides his parents Camille was predeceased by brothers, Dennis, Emile, Edward, Johnny; sisters, Cecile, Cora and Corinne.

Camille was a member of the Knights of Columbus for 41 years reaching the rank of Supreme Knight. He will be remembered for his great love of hunting. He was always ready for a game of cards and was an avid Bridge player. He loved gardening and for many years had the best potato field around. And the best peas!! Retirement from GM Canada after 21 years brought him and his family back home to Belliveau Cove where he ran a small convenience store, later to be named La Shoppe à Camille. Camille will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.

Funeral service will be held Friday, February 7, 2 PM from the St Bernard Catholic Church with Father Honoré Kouassi presiding. Burial will be at a later date.

We will miss Camille's enthusiasm when he played bridge on Monday and Thursday nights at the Knights in Comeauville. He enjoyed bidding no trump and had a beg grin when he made his bid. Our faith assures us that we will meet again in a unique way in God's Heaven. In the meantime, memories of Camille will lighten our spirits. Avec amitie Jack

Our sympathies to all of the family at the loss of Camille. We were always happy to see Camille and Therese at the dances at La Club dans l'Anse, and the little store was a treasure... Camille had the best best cheese for many many years and it was always worth the stop. He was a kind man. May he rest in peace.
