On any given day, you could find Jean in the backyard repairing nets and almost always with a grandchild by his side, teaching the next generation how to sew nets. Jean continued this skill well into his 80s.

Jean was a loving husband, father and grandfather, who loved to tell jokes and always pulling the ultimate pranks on his grandchildren. He was a full of life and was his happiest when he had a house full of family around him laughing, having dinner, solving puzzles, and playing cards.
