8200 Drouin André – CMR – 1965

Un grand homme, toujours droit, qui ne s`est jamais contenté de marcher sur les sentiers battus.Il nous a appris que les chemins faciles ne mènent nulle part et que nous nous devons toujours d`avoir le courage de nos convictions.
Gradué de l`école polytechnique en génie électrique, ancien du Collège militaire de St-Jean (#8200), avide de sciences, de technologies et d`astronomie, il aura su constamment diriger sa famille sur les voies de leurs propres vérités.
Dans le processus final, encore une fois, il aura démontré une force plus grande que nature.
Le temps est venu de quitter le navire,
Fair Winds and Followings Seas.
À son domicile, le 2 avril 2017, est décédé à l`âge de 70 ans, monsieur André Drouin, époux de madame Luce (Lucette) Rivard et fils de feu monsieur Georges Drouin et de feu madame Monique Ayotte, demeurant à Hérouxville.

Lucide, controversé et avant-gardiste
