Décédé subitement vendredi le 31 mai à Saint-Hilaire à l’âge de 74 ans. Fils de feu Marcel Jetté et feu Réjane Petit. C’est avec grande tristesse que nous annonçons le départ de ce grand homme qui a profondément touché tous ceux qui l’on connu.

On se rappellera ses joyeux câlins, son dévouement à la famille, sa passion pour la musique et pour les arts, et pour la recherche constante de nouvelles connaissances, et sa capacité de propager son amour. Il était un phare dans les méandres de la vie pour son entourage. Il est impossible d’exprimer combien il nous manquera.
