    Dear Sylvia and family, so sorry to hear about Albert’s passing, He was a good friend and my favorite guitar player I will miss him very much this summer, may he Rest In Peace.

    My deepest condolences to Sylvia, Lisa, Marcel and family. Every time I came home to visit in Cheticamp it was always a pleasure to visit Albert and Sylvia. Not sure why but my conversations with Albert always turned to hockey and the habs. You would have to go far to find a bigger fan. He was a good guitar player and was a true blue “Pierre Andrę”. We will miss you dearly along with your immediate family.

    Condolences to all the family of Albert, I was very shocked to hear of his passing, cause I did not know that Albert was so sick. I am also a brother boilermaker since 47 years, and has worked with Albert many times, and it was always a fun job, when Albert was there. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Sincere condolences to Sylvia, Lisa and Marcel on the passing of a very dear friend, Albert. Albert and I were were neighbors during the 50’s and spent a lot of time at each other’s houses and especially at my dad’s forge before we moved to Waltham. The one thing he and I had strong feelings for was and is still, The Montreal Canadians and antique cars. We had many discussions on both subjects whenever we got together. Rest in Peace, my friend, you are now in good company with Gerry, Roger, and the many other musicians from the Cheticamp area who have passed on. Heaven’s Got Talent….

  • Barbara Anne MacKay March 5, 2020 7:57 pm

    to Sylvia and family: I met Albert through l’AMAC, and we had a dear friend in common, the late Ciffie Carter. Once he found out I knew Ciffie, he always had a special hello for me on Tuesdays from then on. I will miss him and his music. Please accept my sincere condolences, may he rest in peace.
