Eloi Gélinas, of Sainte-Flore, passed away early Sunday morning at the age of 80 years old. He was a man of many trades over the years, but really found his niche as a master craftman and woodworker, building everything from children’s toys and furniture, to entire houses. His biggest joy in life was being surrounded by family, friends, his dog, sharing laughs, a good meal, and his endless memories, stories and silly jokes with anyone willing to listen.
