Vince Fontaine

On behalf of our Fontaine family, it is with terrible sadness and shock that I announce the sudden passing of my dear Uncle Vince Fontaine today: Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

Husband, father, son, grandson, cousin and uncle, Vince was a proud member of Sagkeeng First Nation and founding member of Juno Award-winning Eagle and Hawk and Indian City.

Vince's love of music was only outshone by his measureless devotion to his family, friends and community — we, who remain stunned and devastated by this great and unexpected loss. We love you uncle Vince.
