Obituary of Richard Lachapelle

Lachapelle, Richard Joseph

It is with a heavy heart, I announce the passing of my love, my husband and best friend, Richard at 76 years of age, on March 25, 2021 with his beloved wife of 36 wonderful years, Doris Gallion by his side at Erie Shores Healthcare. Survived by his children, Scott, Connie, Karen and Aaron. Dearest brother of Mary Anne McNamara (late Harold). Predeceased by his parents, Edmond and Bertha Lachapelle and sister Marcella Meunier. He will also be remembered by his many nieces and nephews, especially Sherry. Richard retired from Trepanier Automotive, after many years of service as a mechanic. With his many talents, he had the gift of helping anyone in need with any project. He cared about everyone. That’s just who he was! Richard and Doris were a great team, doing everything together whether it was remodeling or yard work. They also enjoyed the occasional trip to Vegas and spending time with their friends, Jane and John in Niagara Falls. His love and laughter, will be forever remembered and missed. Special thank you to good friends and neighbours, Richard and Louise McCallum, and Frank and Lyn Garon for their love and continued support. Richard was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Br. 201, Essex for many years. In following Richard’s wishes, private cremation services have taken place. A Celebration of Richard's life will take place at a later date. If desired, memorial donations may be made to Erie Shores Healthcare Foundation or the Heart and Stroke Foundation by contacting Reid Funeral Home, Essex (519-776-4233).
