    Our condolences to Alain and Marc and both of your families. We have all had a lot of great years together with your dad Real as us kids growing up in Wawa. Throughout our hockey, baseball, and golf years we all hold onto great memories of him that will always remain with us. The stories that we all have continue to make us laugh, as your dad was a character like no other. I know our friends who read this understand what I mean!

  5. We appreciate all the kind words and gestures that the great little community of Wawa has shown us during these challenging times. We always knew there was a reason our dad never wanted to leave it at any point in his life. Always in our hearts. Thanks Marc and Alain
