A private family “Celebration of Life” will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to St. Joseph’s Foundation of Elliot Lake would be greatly appreciated by the family.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Purzner & the 3rd floor nursing staff at St. Joseph’s General Hospital for the care & compassion provided to Aubrey throughout his illness. Thank you also to Josianne for your guidance & care.
Love Jackie & family
“Aubrey will forever be in Our Hearts. We know he’s gone fishing with the Angels”.
