In Loving Memory
Richard John Graham Lavallie
Son of the late Mary and Leonard Lavallie. Brother of the late Robert William Lavallie, Sudbury; remembered by sister; Marie Wing of Sudbury; brother Peter Lavallie (Lisla Beaton) of Lively; brother Brian Lavallie (Diane) of Lively; brother Alan Lavallie (Anita) of Elliot Lake; sister Joanne Goedhard (John) Lively; Laurie Lalonde (Marc) of Sudbury and Jackie Lavallie-Cieslewicz of Sudbury.
He was a proud uncle of 15 nieces and nephews and great uncle to 16 nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.
Richard graduated from Sudbury Tech, Windsor University and Cambrian College. He travelled and worked in Europe and throughout Canada before settling on Southview Drive at the family home.
Being a veteran’s son, he was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion 564 for many years and that is where he excelled at darts.
Richard loved to sing and dance. He looked forward to family gatherings and relished giving generously to family and giving out his chocolate treats at Christmas. He spent many days at the family camp on Little Fairbanks in his youth and adult life.
Richard was a friendly soul and will be missed. Rest in peace.
Donations to the Salvation Army, RCL Poppy Fund or Schizophrenia Research would be appreciated.
Thank you to Dr. Thakrar and Dr. Matthews, PSW’s, Chuck and nurse Megan from Bayshore Home Health for their outstanding care and kindness. Special thanks to his many friends at Rumball Terrace, Irma and Bridgette at Positive Steps.
