Pierre Dedeyne

The Michigan Petanque Club has lost a former member. Pierre Dedeyne passed away on Wed. 11/21/08, he was 80. Visitation will be at Bagnesco & Calcaterra Funeral Home 25800 Harper, St Clair Shores on Sat. 11/22/08 from 2 to 9 p.m. A service will be held on Sunday 12:00 at the funeral home.

Pierre was a founding member of the Petanque Club of Detroit now Michigan Petanque Club when it was organized in the 1970's, and he and his wife Lauraine played petanque until the mid 1990's. Every 14th of July, Bastille day, Pierre and his wife would invite many of their friends and Club members to their home where many hours were enjoyed playing petanque, eating good food and drinking good wine. Those were memorable times and will remain with us forever.

On behalf of the Michigan Petanque Club and sister club Detroit Petanque Club we extend our heartfelt condolences to Pierre's entire family.

Pierre will be missed by all who knew him
