Obituary

Gerard peacefully passed away surrounded by his loving family on Sunday June 19, 2022, at the age of 88 years, at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. Beloved husband to Joyce (nee Lindsay) Lafontaine. Loving father to Ted Lafontaine, Karin Dreany (Brian), and Nicole Hummel (Matt). Cherished grandfather to Liam and Colin Dreany, and Jack and Will Hummel. Gerard was predeceased by his son Dan Lafontaine (2016), his granddaughter Alexandra Lafontaine (2019), his parents John and Florina (nee Charette) Lafontaine. He is survived by his sisters Theresa and Rita and by his brother Lucien. Gerard was a man of strong faith in a loving God. A man who throughout his life had overcome many difficulties and challenges. First and foremost, he was a devoted and loving family man, an outdoorsman, and an avid sportsman.
