Audette, Roger

The family announces with heavy hearts his peaceful passing in Sudbury on Friday, March 4th, 2022 at the young age of 53.  Son of Gilles & Yvonne (née Carrière) Audette, beloved fiancée and love of his life Joanne Coulombe, devoted and loving father of Eric Audette & Michel (Ashton) Audette. Step father of Kasy & Danny Lehoux. Dear brother & best friend of Claude (Linda) Audette and Celine (Robert) Valiquette. He will be sadly missed by his niece Melissa (Booker) and nephews Steven (Natalie), Kevin, Justin and Patrick. He will also be missed and fondly remembered by his Hazel St. family and his many many friends.

Roger was an avid outdoorsman, loved fishing, quadding, sledding, camping, and all the beauty of being outside. Nothing made him happier than being around his family and friends spending quality time together and making lasting memories. His zest for life and positive outlook has left a lasting impression on many. His various sayings “la vie est belle, c’est beautiful, or awesomeness” are words that will resonate with us forever. The family would like to thank the team of ICU level 3 at HSN Sudbury.

The family will receive relatives and friends at 11:00 am at St Joseph’s Church (3594 Errington Ave North, Chelmsford, ON.) on Saturday March 26, 2022. Please follow pandemic protocols, masks will be required.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to the Sudbury Food Bank by cheque or online and would be greatly appreciated.


25 Condolences

  1. Joanne, and family we are so very sorry for your loss and are sending our deepest condolences.
    Our hearts are broken about the passing of our dear neighbour. Roger was a one-of-a-kind person, who has touched many peoples lives. Within the last 3 years of living next door, we have picked up quickly on the many amazing things Roger did on a day to day basis, like placing a basketball net at the end of your driveway displaying a sign in front of it for the entire neighbourhood to enjoy. Roger’s kind heartedness will never be forgotten.

  10. Dear Joanne, Eric, Mitch and Audette Family,

    So many beautiful memories, he had a real zest for life! My favorite saying was “thank you for being my friend” which he would sing. He truly loved being around his JO-JO, and his entire family and friends. We will miss the rumble of his plastic wagon wheels with his cooler inside coming down the street ready for his “mini-friday” visit. His postivie attitude was contageous, he was always happy and always ready for an adventure. Our deepest sympathies to his beautiful family, we will truly miss him. Rest In Peace Roger.
