It is with great sadness that the family of Adrian Blair Perreault announces his passing on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019 at Seine River First Nation.
Adrian was born on July 9, 1964 in Atikokan, Ont. to Theodore Perreault and Mary Morin.
He was a hard worker and very proud to earn his place in the local 1669 Carpenters Union.
