Gustave “Gus” Ayotte After a courageous battle with cancer, Gustave Pierre Ayotte died peacefully on June 14, 2007 with family by his side. He was born on July 15, 1921 to Philomene and Maurice Ayotte, the eldest of eight children. He married Mildred “Millie” Pennock on February 24, 1941 and together they raised eight children. During the war, Mr. Ayotte worked in the mines in Matachewan and Sudbury before returning to New Liskeard to operate the family farm. In later years he owned and operated a number of businesses including the New Arena Restaurant, Gus’ Groceteria, Millie’s Place Confectionary and the New Liskeard Meat Market. In retirement, Mr. Ayotte enjoyed many years at their villa in Acapulco, Mexico, with his wife and they cherished annual winter visits by family and friends. Whether it was at the kitchen table, in the meat shop, at Sam’s or in Acapulco, Mr. Ayotte always enjoyed a game of cribbage. And if someone wasn’t up for a game of crib, he would always settle for an arm wrestle. As much as he enjoyed winning, nothing gave him more pleasure than when one of his grandchildren won their first game of cribbage or beat him at arm wrestling. Mr. Ayotte was known for his positive outlook on life, his larger than life character and the way he always helped those in need. He is survived by his wife Millie; sons Roger (Cecelia), Jimmy, Roland and Rick; daughters Linda (Leo Lariviere), Theresa (Peter deLuis), Suzanne (Curtis Block) and Nancy (Guy Lavergne); daughter-in-law Polly Ayotte; 17 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren; brother Armand and sister Angela Benoit. Mr. Ayotte was predeceased by his parents; brothers Donat and Albert; sisters Gilberte Gravel, Beatrice Maille-Desjardins, Therese; and by grandson Michael Ayotte. He also enjoyed time spent with his good friend Lorne Bigelow and truly appreciated the care he received at the Temiskaming Lodge. The funeral was arranged by Perrin Funeral Chapel, cremation has taken place. A funeral mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church in New Liskeard at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 25. A celebration of his life will follow at the New Liskeard Pool Fitness Centre lounge at noon hour. Condolences and donations to the Daffodil Lodge may be left at
