PLATTSBURGH — Fernand "Fern" Y. Arseneault, 66, of Sunrise Drive, Plattsburgh and Montreal, Canada, died on Friday Nov. 23, 2012, at CVPH Medical Center.

He enjoyed golf trips with his friends, hosting parties, having pig roasts and fish fries. Fern was also eager to stop and have a drink or two with friends. He volunteered for Hospice of the North Country in assisting with the annual Carol Wallet Memorial Golf Tournament and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. Fern was also an avid Montreal Canadiens and St. Louis Cardinals Fan.

He was predeceased by his father. Fern is survived by his companion of 20 years, Donna Turner of Plattsburgh; his mother Alice Arsenault; three siblings, Lise Martinet and her husband Marcel, Normand Arsenault and his wife Gloria and Louis Arsenault and his wife Lise, all of Montreal; two nephews; Sylvaen, Patrick; a niece, Gulie; and his pets, Mini, Max and B.K.
