God bless him and his family. Not a day went by that I didn’t enjoy working with and learning with him. Always enjoyed our time working together and plenty of laughs. That’s what I’ll always remember him by. I know plenty of people feel the same. What a gifted and genuinely caring person. Here’s to you Simard 🙏🙏
