parents would know him from Clement, Allion and Laurier
MacDonald schools in LaSalle.

degree from McGill University and retired at an early age- to spend
more time on his interests and at the cottage in Morin-Heights- fishing, cycling, dart playing and wood carving. He continued to be actively involved in organized groups, including volunteering for Meals on Wheels and the annual Morin-Heights Viking (ski) Lopet, and holding prominent positions in the Association of Catholic Retired Administrators (ACRA), Morin-Heights Historical Association, Royal Canadian Legion branches 171 and 85-90, as a warden at the Morin-Heights Catholic church and even ran as counsellor for the Morin-Heights municipality.
Given the current pandemic situation, a funeral service will not be
held at this time, however we hope for a late summer burial ceremony at the Notre-Dame-Des-Neiges cemetery. Please periodically visit www.maisontrudel.com for further
