SAINT-CHARLES, NB - Dollard Arseneault, 68, of
Saint-Charles passed away suddenly, following a brief illness at the

Dollard was a man of hard work, integrity, generosity and laughter. He adored old country music, a cold beer and antique cars. He loved spending time with his family, working his land, harvesting firewood and clearing the ditches along the roadside (let's be real... Kent Lake never looked so good). He was a remarkable man, respected by many and loved by all.
