Father René - After a short but valiant and courageous battle with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, Father René Dubé passed away peacefully, at the Janet MacDonell Pavilion on Monday, June 25, 2007, surrounded by his close and good friends whom he considered family; age 62 years. Father René Dubé was the only child of the late Alfred Dubé and the late Inez (Jarvo) Dubé. He is survived by a few aunts, uncles and cousins. He has served the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall for thirty-eight years and made many friends in the different parishes where he was appointed.
