Sad News – Adelard “Sonny” Lagace Has Passed Away (Gen.10)

For the first time since I started chronicling our history, I have the sad duty of reporting on the passing of one our own family members. The man I knew as Uncle Sonny was born in Bathurst, New Brunswick to Adelard Lagace and Eveline Melvina Luce. He was the youngest of  14 children. Sonny’s real name was Adelard Lagace,  just like his father. He will be sadly missed – and at a future date I will talk more about him. For today I’m publishing the official obituary from Le Reflet du Lac which includes details about tomorrow’s services. Translation follows.


À Sherbrooke, le 1er juin 2009, est décédé Adélard Lagacé à l’âge de 61 ans, conjoint de Chantal Marcil, demeurant à Magog.  La direction des funérailles ont été confiées à la
