One of Verdun's More Colourful Characters Passes Away (Roddy Diamond)

Turns out Roddy would be a neighbour of mine twice once in Verdun on Wellington ST. & again later on in Ville Lasalle on 9th. He was certainly a colurful character to say the least ,but he was also a pretty funny & a good guy.(IMHO) He actually ran for mayor of Verdun at one time, and also had a small restaurant where the burgers were great. See ya Roddy, cause we will all be along at some point. Cheers ! LesF
 I have added the obit to the ever growing "In Memoriam" page that I started here along time ago (10 years at least) I know I have missed plenty of peoples obits but sadly there are plenty there to see. So if you want to remember someone have a look at the page & keep their memory alive as you read.
