Obituary for Peter LaRocque

Suddenly but peacefully with loved ones by his side, on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at the Temiskaming District Hospital, Peter LaRocque of North Cobalt passed away at the age of 67. Loving husband of Janice LaRocque (nee Poupore). Loved by his children, Alexis LaRocque, Rebecca LaRocque and Clyde LaRocque (Melissa). Survived by his grandchildren Blake and Brantley Schroeder. Pre-deceased by his dear mother and father, Clyde and Irma LaRocque and sister Ann McGregor (Craig). Peter made his mark on the community in business and in countless friendships. His storytelling and loving teasing will be treasured memories for many. His clever mind never stopped and even throughout his short illness, he spent hours monitoring the e-mails to ensure that his ‘dispatch’ was being adhered to and that those spending time with him were laughing. Nothing made Peter happier than being surrounded by family and friends. If his table was full, his heart was full and he never missed an opportunity to bribe up a guest list with the offer of a “free steak”. Cremation has taken place at Lakeview Crematorium, Haileybury. Friends will be received at Buffam Leveille Funeral Home, Haileybury Location 705-672-3122 on Friday, November 17th from 5-7 pm. A Memorial Service will be held at St. Paul’s United Church, 70 Wellington Street North, New Liskeard on Saturday, November 18th at 11:00 am with Celebrant Jamie Carter officiating. As expressions of sympathy memorial donations may be made to the NLPS Nutrition Program (Please make cheque out to “District School Board Ontario North East” with "NLPS Nutrition Program" in the memo section) or a charity of your choice.
