I married into the Mailloux family but not until after this happened and his mother and sister would tell me stories about him. Like the one where he had to try pulling a big butcher knife out of someone's head but it couldn't be done. Some stories I can't repeat but he regularly helped people regardless of who they were.
His mother was never the same. She withdrew from people as much as possible. She has passed now from a long battle with breast cancer. As a very small child, my daughter would say a policeman would come play with her. She had never seen his picture before then.
I have been curious to find out all the details from both sides really. Without judgement. Most of the family has passed and soon there will only be nieces and nephews. I would like to be able to pass this on. If you would like to share then please message me at [email protected] and put his name in the subject box.
