Obituary for Roger P. Lachance

May 16, 1940 - August 1, 2019
Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 79


Roger Lachance (Papa), 79 of Manchester, New Hampshire passed into the arms of his eternal father on August 1, 2019 following a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's Disease.
He was born on May 16, 1940 in Manchester, New Hampshire. He is predeceased by his mother Elizabeth, his father Henry, and his brother, Edmond of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Roger had many talents. He was a graceful ice skater and dancer, had the ability to skillfully navigate 18 wheels and was always the family 'go to' for his creative ability to use everyday items for other uses.
He was the family documentarian, recording all of life's precious moments including holidays and family gatherings. Roger will be greatly missed by those who were fortunate enough to have known him. Roger loved life and despite the confining limitations associated with Parkinson's, remained selfless with a willingness to help those in need.
Family members include his wife of 59 years, Carmel (Francoeur) daughters, Linda of Manchester and Liza and her husband Marc of Concord, grandchildren Elizabeth, Chantal, Brian, Andrew and three great grandchildren.
He is also survived by his loving sister Rita Gregoire and her husband Bertrand Gregoire, their extended family, and many nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Hillsborough County Nursing Home and Home Health & Hospice for the care they provided.
