Obituary ~ Lucien Joseph Duchesneau, 1961-2009
Lucien Joseph Duchesneau was born Jan. 17, 1961 in High Prairie, to parents Jacqueline and Alberta Duchesneau. He was born the fifth of six boys. Lucien lived with his family, long-time residents of Joussard, until the age of four when he went to live at the Michener Centre in Red Deer.
Lucien, along with his mother Jacqueline and brother Norbert, lived with the challenge of a genetic disorder called Myatonic Dystrophy. Despite a medically predicted short life span, Lucien beat all odds to have a full life until 48 years old.
Twenty years ago Lucien moved to Grande Prairie to reside at Tiger Homes with assisted living. His life has been rich with community involvement and the love and caring of family and friends.
Lucien passed away suddenly at his home in Grande Prairie Oct. 30, 2009. Left behind to mourn his passing are brothers Romeo (Isobel), Marcel (Doris), Roger (Linda), Maurice (Lorna), half-sister Jackie Okimaw and many nieces and nephews.
He is predeceased by his parents and brother Norbert.
Lucien, your gentle and caring nature will be greatly missed.
