He later met the love of his life Carmen (Lapierre) and married; recently celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in October. Loving father to Lisa Bertrand (Will) and Patricia. He was a doting grandfather to Nicholas, Kristen, Zacharie, Steph and Neveah. Reynald was a true family man, happiest when surrounded by his wife, children, and grandchildren. Anyone who knew him knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for. Reynald was predeceased by his parents George and Alda (Malette), his siblings Madeleine (late Albert Scully) Gerard, Marguerite (late Lionel Legault), Georgette (late Aurelien Beaudry), and Lucien. He is survived by his sister Cecile (late Thomas O’Brien) and brother Sylvio (Claire) of Sturgeon Falls, Ontario. Special brother-in-law to Roger Lapierre and Claude Lapierre (Denise). He will be missed by many nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends. Reynald worked many years for the School Board starting his career at Marymount College where he was fondly remembered by teachers, coworkers, and students.
