As former neighbours to Ovila's fine parents in Acadieville some decades ago, we remember well Ovila and his deceased brother Nazaire; they paid frequent and helpful visits to our huge farm and they were always warmly welcomed. Afterwards, we enjoyed renewing acquaintances with Ovila and his family when visiting his fatherland in New Brunswick. Most sincere condolences from the Barrieau (Léonard) Family, now mostly established in the Moncton area.

Remember Ovila and Florence visiting Acadieville when I was young. They often visited my parents Hypolite and Yvette. Ovila was well liked and will be remembered.
Our sympathies to the family from us and my mom Yvette
