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.
