I adopted this profile and was informed by a fellow wikitree member there is a possible error?
“Francois Perrault married died on 1704, not on 1745. He was drown with his wife. They had not any children. They were married by contract, before Notary Daniel Normandin. Francois Perrault that you mentioned died on 1745, in Trois-Rivières, was married to Suzanne Page, in Notre-Dame, Quebec, on 26 November 1715,”
We need help clarifying this info and better sourcing. 
Any help is appreciated 
Thank you

The François Perrault who died in 1745 per that funeral was around 67 year old merchant who died in hospital in Trois-Rivières and was buried in the hospital's poor cemetery.  He died of illness which kept him unconscious.

The Biographi.ca link you have is for the man who died in Trois-Rivières described above.  Nothing to do with the profile you have linked.  Wrong wife for one.

There are various links you have there, Denis Beauregard of Francogene errs in putting the 1745 date for your linked man.  The rest give either no data, are membership items, or give a vague date of 1704 in Bécancour.  Can't find a record of such so far, Bécancour parish registers only open in 1716.  Jetté makes no mention of their deaths.

Anyways, detached the ''son'' who didn't belong with them.
