Fern was born on July 5, 1960, to Victor and Florida Grenier. He grew up in a helpful generous loving family. As the youngest of the family, he always said they had hit perfection, so no more kids. At the age of 12, his cousin asked him to paint the inside of his big dairy barn. He accepted the challenge. It took him a summer for this job. His cousin was so pleased with his work that he gave him a lot more money, than he asked for. So excited he bought himself a ten-speed bike with all the bells and whistles and put some money away.
He was a man of many trades including, painting, catering, construction, and beekeeping. In 1986 he found something sweeter than his bees, Agnes, and they were married on June 6, 1987. Then, the kids came along. He worked hard but found time to take the family on camping and fishing trips, which made many memories.
Through the years many obstacles, tragedies and accidents happened. By faith and positive thinking, we moved on. Visiting, card games, pranks, story telling, jokes and the casino, became new passions. Through these activities many reconnections and new friendships were made.
Funeral Service will be held on Friday, May 26, 2023 at the Altamont Community Centre at 2 p.m. with Father Levesque officiating. Interment to follow in the Altamont Community Cemetery.
