Lachance, Normand Fernand

It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Normand F. Lachance on August 20, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Villa in Sudbury at the age of 81. Cherished son of the late Albert and Lena Lachance (nee Therrien). Dear son-in-law of the late Lucjan & Gertrudy Wolski. Beloved husband of Wanda Lachance (nee Wolski). Loving father of Kimberly A. Ducharme (Richard-predeceased) and Michael Normand Lachance (Lucie). Dearest brother of Ronnie Lachance of Noëlville and Maurice Lachance (predeceased). Forever in the hearts of his grandchildren, Jordan Michael Ducharme (Christine), Brandon James Ducharme (predeceased), Aaron Taylor Ducharme (Michaela), Logan Michael Lachance and his first granddaughter who had a special place in his heart Sarah Wanda Lachance. As well as his precious great granddaughter Eliana Evelyn Ducharme who was born November 21, 2019 and was a blessing to our family. Norm will be missed by many wonderful brother and sisters-in-law. Always saying Renita was his little sweetheart. As well as many nieces, nephews and especially his Godchild Randy Jr. Paris. Norm served in the Royal Canadian Navy on the Bonaventure (The Bonnie) with pride. He was a champion boxer in the Navy. He enrolled in the Navy in May 1957 and was injured during one of their training sessions and was honourably discharged August 13, 1959. Norm returned home and became a Police Officer for CPR in Toronto. Then moving to Quebec where he was an officer for the Laval Police force, when he returned from Quebec, he worked for the Gas company when he met the Love of his Life Wanda Wolski. They married in May of 1965 and made their home in the Sudbury area. They raised two wonderful children Kimberly Ann and Michael Normand. Norm was always interested in home renovations and opened his own business, Canadian Building products, Norm was a successful Businessman who was also the founder and original owner of Seamless Eavestrough, which Norm later sold. He loved to golf and fish, always enjoying his time at his cottage on the French River with his family and all his in-laws. Which also kept him close to his brother Ronnie who owned Green Bay Lodge across from his cottage. The family made many wonderful memories at this cottage that will be remembered forever. When Norm’s health began to fail him, he decided to move to St. Joseph’s Villa. It was an adjustment, but he knew this was the best place to provide for his care. He was a people person and loved to talk. He became the mailman at the Villa and would make conversation and jokes with all. He enjoyed his time there and created fond friendships with the residents and staff, especially Rebecca, Mel, Angela and David. The family would like to thank Dr. Goluch for his unwavering care and the Home & Hemo Dialysis teams at HSN for their compassion and wonderful care during Dad’s journey with Dialysis. Dad always said he lived a wonderful full life, please don’t be sad when I go, I love you all and want you to live your life with happiness… Dad we LOVE you and we will MISS you dearly!! We will have a Toast on our Sunday dinners together just for you! Missing you already!! Your Family with Love. Donations would be appreciated to HSN Dialysis Wing, Kidney Foundation and Heart & Stroke foundations. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date
