Obituary of Jean Louis Lacasse
LACASSE, JEAN LOUIS (Joe)
May 9, 1930 - December 20, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father at the age of 92 years.
Cherished husband and lifetime friend of Jacqueline Konrad. Predeceased by his wives Claire Boutette (1974) and Rita Lacasse (2011), whom Joe kept especially close to his heart for many years.
Treasured father of Pierre, Danielle (Robert Istl), Lise and Claudine (Kevin Renaud). Devoted stepfather of Michel (1987), Marc (2020) and Martin (Rosa). Special friend to Tony, Michael and Mary Ellen Konrad.
Joe is now reunited with his loving family: his father Senator Gustave Lacasse (1953), mother Marie Anne Saint-Pierre (1944), and siblings Fernand (1966), Hubert (Bert) (1977), Hector (1977), Yvon (Pep) (1980), Lucien (Kit) (1991), Aline Bezaire (1994), Maurice (1996), Georgette Ginzinger (2010), Annette Uscinowicz (2015), and Hélѐne Guibord (2019).
Joe is survived by grandchildren Jillian Lacasse and Kyle Robertson; Alexandra, Steven (Alexa Sarson), Eric and Dana Istl; Felicia (Jake Hayes) and Adam Gomes; step-grandchildren Jim Hogan (Julia), Anthony Istl (Jennifer), and Taylor Meadows, as well as eight great-grandchildren and dozens of nieces and nephews.
Joe was co-founder of Lacasse Printing with brothers Bert, Hector and Kit, after which he owned Winnebago Sales and Rentals in Tecumseh throughout the 1970s. He moved on to work with brother Kit at Tribune Printing, then ultimately finished his career as it started: in typesetting and graphic design, working until he was 91 as the owner of Fine Touch Graphics. He will be sadly missed by many friends in the printing business and beyond.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the team of doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional Hospital (Met Campus) for their kind and compassionate care.
