Fellow Wetheads,
I just wanted to inform you of the loss of a friend and fellow Wethead. Gerard Rivard passed away on Wednesday, June 19th, 2002. Many may know him from recently gracing the cover of PM Magazines, May 2002 issue. Gerard and his brother John of Rivard Refrigeration where cover models and main feature "Radiant Teamwork". Over the years I have worked with Gerard and we had a few beers discussing the finer points of radiant heating. He will be missed by his Family and Friends. A friend mentioned, knowing Gerard, he's probably in meetings already with the Lord designing radiant systems or working on the Lord's beer cooler.
On a serious note, the arrangements are as follow:

Wake: Sunday, June 23, 2002, 4-8pm. Cotter's Funeral Home, 224 East Washington, Momence, IL 60954 - (815)472-2442

Funeral Mass: Monday, June 24, 2002, 10am. St. Patrick's Church, 119 North Market, Momence, IL 60954.

In lieu of flowers a donation for the girl's college education would be greatly appreciated.
To send a card: Mrs. Joy Rivard, 4124 North Route 1-17, Momence, IL, 60954

God Bless,

Jim Prisby

    God rest his soul, and comfort his family.

    I hope that someone honors me with a post on The Wall when my time comes.
