Blois, had a very active life filled with joy, success and family. He treasured and took immense joy in time spent with his 10 great-grandchildren during their visits to the Family Farm. An entrepreneur at heart his businesses took him to various communities across PEI where he was well known and respected. From his early days as a volunteer firefighter and founding member of the fire department in New Glasgow, to later becoming an antique tractor enthusiast, he was always ready and willing to help friends and strangers alike.
