Edgar Wilfred Lachance
1933 - 2017
NORWAY - Edgar Wilfred Lachance passed away peacefully, after a brief illness, Sunday, June 11, 2017, surrounded by his family.
Edgar was born Aug. 3, 1933, in Topsham, the son of Adelard and Alice (Fortin) Lachance. After graduating from Morse High School, he entered an apprenticeship at Hyde-Windlass Co. On May 1, 1954, Ed married the love of his life, Constance Cote. They were married 63 years.
Ed was predeceased by his parents, and sisters Constance Collins and Dorothy Sawlivich.
He is survived by his loving wife, Connie; son David and his wife Laurie; son Dean and his wife Susan; and grandsons Michael, Jacob, Zachary and Andrew, of whom he was so very proud. He will be missed by family and many friends.
Ed enjoyed fishing and hunting, but nothing more than attending the ballgames, plays and other activities that his grandsons were involved with, and spending time with family. He was extremely proud to have attended all four grandsons' high school and college graduations.
Ed was drafted into the army during the Korean War, serving in Japan.
As a manufacturing engineer, he was employed at Maine Machine Products, Philips-Elmet, and other machine shops, retiring in 1996. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, The Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the Boy Scouts of America as a Scout leader, and was a Registered Maine Guide.
A Celebration of Life with funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, June 14, at 10 a.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church in Norway. A reception will follow in the parish hall.
