LUCIEN CLAUDE FAUCHER
Lou is lovingly remembered by his partner Karonne, daughter Katie; sisters, Elsie, his twin Claudette, Pauline, and Lea, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Lou was predeceased by his parents, Alcide and Albertine; his sister Florence Westendorf, and his two brothers-in-law, John Chomichuk and Peter Leger.
Lou was born on October 24, 1941 in St. Norbert where he spent most of his formative years. He attended St. Boniface Boys College for part of his high school years. He flourished in this small community to become a man of good character with many qualities and of few words. Following high school Lou took a heavy-duty mechanics course, worked in the nickel mine in Thompson before finding his true calling as a firefighter. He started his career at the Fort Garry Fire Department, moved to Vancouver where he joined the Delta Fire Department wearing number 25. He had a strong work ethic, was conscientious and always took pride in his work. Lou retired as a Captain in the late 90's.
Lou enjoyed watching and participating in sports. His love for hockey began at a young age on a patch of ice in the back yard and continued well into his fifties playing in a non-contact league. Lou loved the outdoors, and enjoyed golfing, hunting, fishing, walking with the dog and his many toys.
He was very devoted to his family, his daughter was his pride and joy. Lou and Karonne retired to Green Lake, BC where they lived surrounded by nature. Together they travelled to Australia, took a few cruises and enjoyed a good number of winters in Mexico and Arizona.
We will always cherish Lou's character, kindness, giving ways, resourcefulness, and not least his humour and mischievous nature. He touched many lives and will be missed by all who knew him.
You will always live on in our hearts.
Walk on Lou. Walk on.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
So sorry to hear about Lou. He was an amazing neighbor and friend. My sincere sympathies Karonne and Katie - Posted by: Bernie Wine (Friend) on: Sep 30, 2021
Lou was an extraordinary person who loved his family dearly. He was very mischievous and loved to tease. Always ready to help out and a champion for the unfortunate or disadvantaged. He was very proud of their daughter Katie and loved her immensely. Lou was a quiet and private person but always ready to defend his beliefs. Lou will be missed by many including myself. Rest in peace Monsuir Faucher - Posted by: Jim Westendorf (Brother in law) on: Sep 13, 2021
I will always remember Uncle Lou for his sense of humour, his shy, gentle manner, and big smile which was covered by the most amazing moustache. To Karonne and Katie, we send our heart-felt condolences. Uncle Lou really was one of a kind. With love. - Posted by: Sandy Coelho (Niece ) on: Aug 29, 2021
My sincere condolences to Claudette and the rest of the Faucher family . - Posted by: Lorraine Knourek (friend of his sister Claudette) on: Aug 28, 2021
To my Faucher cousins, once again I am offering you my deepest sympathies to the family. The last time that I saw Lucien was when my father Adrien Girouard (his godfather) passed away in October of 1994. My two brothers and I really appreciated that he dropped everything to come for my dad's funeral. RIP dear cousin, till we meet again. - Posted by: Richard Girouard - Ste. Julienne, Quebec (First cousin. ) on: Aug 28, 2021
