Born in Aylmer, QC and proud WWII Veteran, our brave and much-loved Florian passed away peacefully at the Maison Mathieu Froment-Savoie, on March 29th at the age of 100 years and 11 months. Son of the late Israël Gravelle and the late Joséphine Lanthier. Beloved husband for 65 years to the late Cécile Longpré. Pre-deceased by his sons Réal (the late Rosanne Gull) and Jean Paul, and his daughter Hélène (Fernand Roy). He will be missed by his children Claudette (André Maurier), Ronald (Gertrude Bélair), Florian Jr. (Lilianne Mousseau), Pierre (Ellen O'Connor), Jean Maurice (Diane Alarie), Bernard (Nancy Fogarty) and Serge (Hélène Renaud), his sister-in-law Fabiola Gravelle (née Lalonde), as well as by three generations of grandchildren, nephews and nieces (these last three number in the hundreds!) He will also be missed by his dear BINGO friends & the very helpful Meals on Wheels folks. The family would like to thank the staff at: Château Symmes, the CLSC and the Maison Mathieu Froment-Savoie. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Finlay for his long, devoted care. A sincere thank you to those who stayed by his side during many nights and days.
