‘Uncle Gilles’ was a huge fan of the Montreal Canadiens; he enjoyed many hockey games. He also loved to play his guitar and sing, his passion for music really came through in his delightful songs. Gilles looked forward to his walk every day to Tim’s for his coffee. He had a great affection for dogs and loved everyone the family had.
