Sylvain Bégin was a person full of both courage and confidence. He was truly involved in the community and had people skills that are rarely seen in this day and age. These qualities in him made him devoted to supporting many charities and organizations in his community. The Mansfield Fire Department, the Angel Tree foundation and the organization of Canada Day celebrations in Mansfield were just a few of his passions outside of his professional life. His joie de vivre and positive energy will remain engraved in our memories, especially of those who dealt with him often at the MRC Pontiac. He loved challenges and was ready to share his experiences with anyone willing to listen to him. The loss is heavy, but his presence in our memories will remain forever.
As an ode to Sylvain, a true hero in our community, the MRC will be making a donation of 100 dollars to the Angel Tree foundation.
