J.C. was an avid outdoorsman, he loved fishing, hunting, camping, snowmobiling, atv riding, mapping out new trails in the bush, finding new lakes/fishing spots and organizing fishing trips. He loved building and creating things with his hands, rustic furniture, cabinets and wooden/metal structures. J.C. was very mechanically inclined, he fixed and maintained his own vehicles. He started at INCO in 1956, worked for 35 years with them and retired in 1991. He worked as a bonus miner for 21 years and a drill-doctor mechanic for his last 15 years. J.C. was always a loving father and husband. He was a proud and well-respected United Steelworker Local 6500 Union activist during his career and a SOAR member throughout retirement. He had many friends. Although he didn’t have any grandchildren, he had three grand cats that he adored very much. He also adored his many nieces, nephews, and their children.
