It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Edmond Lacasse, on Monday, March 29, 2021 at the age of 79.
He leaves behind his cherished best friend and wife of 57 years, Simone (Neveux), his children Charmaine, Brigitte and Jason, and grandchildren Skylar, Chanelle, Dominic and Alessia.
Ed was predeceased by his son Patrick (in infancy), his parents Aurele and Ida (Gobeil), his brother Claude, and many members of his extended family.
Born and raised in Otterburne, MB, Ed obtained his B.A. and B.ED. from the University of Manitoba. Upon completion of his studies, he devoted the following 34 years as teacher and administrator primarily in St. Pierre and St. Malo. Ed enjoyed contributing to the community, be it baseball, hockey, volunteering at the local arena, or coordinating many after school activities.
In retirement, Ed treasured his time “puttering” around the yard, and spending time with Simone, close friends, and a close canine named “Bouncy”. With Simone by his side, he enjoyed his travels to the coasts of Canada, wintering in Texas, and sailing the high seas. His cruises took him from Alaska to the Caribbean islands, the Panama Canal and many stops in between.
Ed led a private and simple life, and cherished the “little things”. He was always supportive of his children and rejoiced in the happiness of others.
