L/S Navy: Retired
March 1956 – March 2020
We are sad to announce the passing of Rodney on March 19, 2020. He was predeceased by his parents Mary and Lawrence Lalonde (1995/2015 respectively). Rod leaves behind three siblings: brother Lawrence “Lonnie” of Kirkland Lake, sister Debbie (Roger) Larocque of Markham, and brother Clayton Lalonde of Brampton. He will be missed by his daughter Jessica, niece Tabitha, nephew Barney and David and Peter Larocque.
Rodney was employed by the Department of National Defence as a Navy Steward for 32 years, received military awards and medals, and was even awarded high praise from foreign dignitaries. He was an active Kirkland Lake Legion member for 20 years, and was pleasant in all of his encounters.
A service will be held at a later date.
We will miss you, Rodney.
