Ac­ci­dent in TBL leaves com­mu­nity pray­ing

Sherbrooke Record - - BROME COUNTY NEWS - By Ann David­son

An ac­ci­dent be­tween a pedes­trian and car oc­curred at the cor­ner of Pine Street and Knowl­ton Road in Knowl­ton last Fri­day af­ter­noon has left Chris­tian Garon in life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion and the driver in shock.

By Mon­day morn­ing the out­pour­ing of prayers and good wishes while Garon con­tin­ues to fight for his life has been stag­ger­ing.

Well-known to the com­mu­nity sim­ply as “Chris­tian,” he and his friend Johnny Blan­chard came to live in TBL many years ago dur­ing the move­ment of de­in­sti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion and have touched ev­ery­one’s lives with their abil­ity to be au­tonomous, hard-work­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity known for their kind­ness and sense of hu­mour. Many have said that Knowl­ton has been a bet­ter place to live with these two men liv­ing here.
