Remembering the mini golf games that we all enjoyed many times in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy your beach walks again. Rest in peace our friend.

Remember a soft spoken man, as a fellow student at Pardoville Public School, as an adult, living on #3 highway and then our paths crossed when he was a patient, last year in the CK Hospital. May you find comfort in your many precious memories. Thinking of you all. Sincerely, Brenda Rumble.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Judy, Karen, Jennifer and Amy and families at this very sad time. May precious memories give you strength.

Little Rene, one of my first primary students at Pardoville School. He was a very busy young man who probably kept his parents hopping. Soon, I had the pleasure of having one of his girls in my grade 5 class at Harwich-Raleigh. Although he will be missed, we wish him the best as he rest with His Maker.

We are so sorry for your loss. My dad, Malcolm Cumming, asked that I send his condolences as well.

Amy Matthew and family, I’m sorry for your loss. Rene was always a kind and friendly man, I know he will be greatly missed! Thinking of you, Judy and the entire family at this difficult time.

I was shocked and saddened to hear about Rene’s passing. As we were growing up our families were close and all of us kids hung out and played together. Thinking of you, Judy and your family at this difficult time.

Dear Judy and the girls and husbands and the grand children. So very sorry for your loss, such a gentle,soft spoken man that will truly be missed. Sharing your loss.
