Mr. Choquette died Jan. 24 at the CHSLD St-Vincent Hospital in Sherbrooke. He was 102 years old. He spent nearly all of his life working and training horses, starting with jumping and show horses early in his career in Quebec and then 30-plus years as a Standardbred harness racing trainer, working for the late Hall of Famer Delvin Miller.

The family will be present at the Immaculate Conception Church, 1085 Adélard-Colette St., Sherbrooke, in the presence of the ashes, starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday in order to receive sympathies from relatives and friends. A religious service will follow at 11 a.m. The ashes will be placed at the cemetery of Sainte-Catherine-de-Hatley at a later date.
