My deepest sympathies to the Quevillon family.

From: Catherine Quevillon Schill
Relation: Neice

I have many fond memories of my Uncle Art. As a child, I remember him to be the “young, good looking uncle who could sing “like Dean Martin” and still was interested in doing fun stuff”. The times the extended Quevillon clan gathered often saw Uncle Art in center stage. I remember him to be a kind, caring and dedicated family man, who made a point of honouring his parents and his siblings with regular visits until their deaths. He never failed to be there in times of family need. I am very grateful to have known him and to have shared in his life and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
