Claude was a great family man and a loving father. He married Karen in 1983 and the couple had three children together. He was very active in the lives of his children whether it involved coaching a sports team, going on camping vacations, attending any performance or staying up late to help with a project that had been procrastinated on.
Claude was one of the most extroverted accountants that you will find. He was social, active man who was deeply involved in music of some kind for the majority of his life.

His family and friends will always remember him as a joyful, helpful person who was always there to support you with 110% of what he could give.
