A responsible dad from an early age; widowed at 38 with 6
children at home, he has held the fort and has always made sure that
no one misses anything in life. His second marriage will allow him to
expand his family with two more children. For him, family was very
important; he was the beloved « Pépére »
of all his ten grandchildren and never missed a chance to demonstrate
the love he had for them. Then with a few years, he was looking
forward to having great grandchildren and he was lucky to have nine,
whom he loved wholeheartedly.
He always found a way to entertain his grandchildren, even if
that meant using the awning from a trailer as a slide. Always ready to
empty his pockets of pennies for his grandchildren and
great-grandchildren, which earned him the nickname
« pépére cennes ».
René, founder of René Trailer Sales in
1973, maintained his company while preserving the essence of a family
business, until 2016. From a young age, mechanics and the love of cars
have always had a place important in his everyday life. Generous man
not only for his family but also for his clients and
He had the turn to welcome people warmly, always ready to
offer his house, his car, his trailer … and so on. Incredible
generosity, ready to deprive himself of something to make sure he can
help his family before himself.
With his big heart, he never forgot to give roses to the
women in his life, whenever we were all gathered
