Venant was a devoted husband, and excellent father and grandfather. He was a beloved member of his community and a well respected man of his church. Venant showed a strong commitment to his faith and beliefs. One of his many passions was volunteering his time. He also enjoyed spending time with family and friends, golfing, hockey, and his new found interest of carpet bowling.

Cremation will follow and a private interment of the urn will take place at a later date.
