J. Marcel Girardeau, a fellow Rotarian deceased.  It is always sad when a fellow Rotarian passes.  Marcel was an exceptional Rotarian.  He died having achieved the "young" age of 100 years!  I feel so privileged to have met him when I visited his club in Trois Riviere this past fall.  He was on time for the early morning meeting with his bright and cheery smile.  Incredibly, he was still driving himself to these club meetings! I believe he served as a Rotarian for near 70 years!  It was clear in speaking with him that he valued everything and everyone associated with Rotary.  He is truly an individual who has connected and inspired others.  He will be missed!
