Looking for death information for Romeo Guy Labrosse. Help needed please.
« on: Sunday 18 February 18 19:54 GMT (UK) »
Hello all, :) I am trying to help a friend out regarding this chap :

Romeo Guy Labrosse was born in 1927 and was a member of the  1st Canadian parachute battalion from 1944 until 1946, I was wondering if anyone could find a positive death for him, I only have a UK sub to Ancestry and FindMyPast so am unable to clarify a death for him which is possibly in 1999, any information would as always be very gratefully appreciated.

Frank.

He was living in Brandon Manitoba so I'll assume he retired to Florida.

Hi,

In case you don't have this, an obit. for Sophie Labrosse wife of Romeo. Made me smile, a
lovely lady.

Hi dbree  :) , thank you so much for that, it's great.

The search for Romeo is connected with his time in the Canadian Airborne Division, I just keep searching to try to find a picture of him but I fear that is an impossible task.

Once again my sincere thanks and best regards, the information is wonderful.
