Wilfred Richard Labrecque
September 2, 1939
– January 24, 2016
Wilfred was born, raised and lived his whole life near Lac Magloire.
At age 17, he bought his first quarter-section of land and began his 49-year career of farming.
At 23 years, he married the girl next door, the love of his life, Denise Guerin.
They were married 53 years and had four children: Claude, Lucille, Marcel and Sue.
Wilfred loved his family above all.
He will always be remembered as a storyteller, a teaser and a jokester.
He loved to make others laugh.
Nieces and nephews know he always had gum or candy in his pockets for them.
His passions included: raising exotic birds – especially peacocks –
as well as reading, playing checkers and cards, camping, fishing, hunting and feeding his cats.
He will always be remembered as a generous, happy family man.
