ROMAIN, Emile – Passed away peacefully at the age of 78 years young at the Kirkland & District Hospital with his family at this side. Born in Matachewan on December 6, 1941 to Elieth and Leonne Romain. He began his mining career at the age of 18 years old. He worked in mines across Canada until 1974 when he returned to the town he loved, to take care of the family business, Romain’s Variety. During his 20 years of operating Romain’s Variety, he had love and respect for all his employees and customers. He helped many families around the community with donations of items from the store. In 1995, he returned to mining until his retirement in 2013. Emile was a man of few words and many jokes. He had unconditional love for all and a willingness to help anyone anytime.
