  1. Bert Ouellette was a great person and so involved in our community. He operated a garage for many years. You’d always see him with a large, smelly cigar. He later sold his shop and in his retired years, was working at Bumper to Bumper. His mechanical knowledge and friendly manner were a boon for the store. As well, Bert & Jeanette had Bert’s mother move in with them after his father passed away. He will be truly missed!
