    Yours was one of the first families I met when moving to town in 1969. My sympathy to each of you and to all of you as you mourn the loss of your father. Rest in Peace, Mr. Demers. I will remember you fondly as a soft spoken, kind hearted, devoted family man with a twinkle in your eye. You’ve touched many people during your long, well lived life and you will certainly be missed by each of them.
