Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to the life of the mayor of Lac-Saint-Paul in Laurentides—Labelle.

Louis Fabricius Lanzon was a retired nuclear engineer of Maltese descent. He was a kind man with a real zest for life. He became mayor in 2013 and truly cared about his fellow citizens. I met him for the first time a few months later, and we quickly became friends.

Recently, I had the pleasure of dining with him and his wife, Marie-Claire Meilleur, at their home. That evening, Louis gave me the idea of using turmeric powder, along with salt and pepper, as a basic spice, and he explained the geothermal heating system he had just designed in his home.

He passed away on Wednesday at the age of 78. He will be missed by the entire community and everyone who knew him. I want to offer my sincere condolences to the member for Labrador and her husband, Joseph. Louis recently became our colleague's father-in-law.

We are going to miss Louis.

Monsieur le Président, je me lève pour honorer la vie du maire de la municipalité de Lac-Saint-Paul, dans Laurentides—Labelle.

Louis Fabricius Lanzon était un ingénieur nucléaire retraité d'origine maltaise. Un gentil homme débordant de joie de vivre, il est devenu maire en 2013. Il avait vraiment à coeur la qualité de vie de ses concitoyens. Je l'ai rencontré pour la première fois quelques mois plus tard, et nous sommes vite devenus amis.

Récemment, j'ai eu le plaisir de souper avec lui et sa conjointe, Marie-Claire Meilleur, à leur domicile. Ce soir-là, Louis m'a donné l'idée d'utiliser de la poudre de curcuma à côté du sel et du poivre comme épice standard pour sa nourriture, et il m'a expliqué son système de chauffage géothermique qu'il venait de concevoir lui-même dans sa maison.

Il est décédé mercredi passé, à l'âge de 78 ans. Il manquera à toute la communauté et à tous ceux qui l'ont connu. J'exprime mes sincères condoléances à la députée de Labrador et à son conjoint, Joseph. Louis était récemment devenu beau-père de notre collègue.

Louis va nous manquer.
