Stephan Scrak

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we said farewell to our dear friend and fellow artist. His spirit lives on in our memories and his wonderful paintings, some of which are on display in the church hall of St James Catholic Church Hall - 23 Rue de L'Église in Portage du Fort, Quebec. Our group is also planning a visual memorial this summer for Stephan. 
Stephan Scrak passed away October 19th, 2015.
